J--

Protein Power is the name of the book by the Drs. Eades. You can find one probably at your library or on EBay. The newer book is called Protein Power Lifeplan.

Hope you're having a good day, homeslice.

Wow J!!!!!!!! That was beautiful! I so know what you mean! The binge comes to steal our joy! But, we have the victory!!!! And you know what? If you binge, just jump back on the bike and keep on pedalling!!! Thanks for all your support!!

And, do you in regards to the dating thing! God's already preparing that person for you, and when you meet her, there'll be no denying it!!!

Well how does a drunk stay or get drunk... how does a drug addict stay High??
how does a sex addict stay satisfied.... I can think of many ways addicts stay to their
choices... do I Chooose to be fat ?? no.... I am a food addict.
I have denial issues.. the only thing hard to swallow when you are a food addict...is..
the truth.
I am well aquainted with the concept of denial.. in fact I'd say that being fat is in itself a
state of denial.... when you are fat you sometimes look at a photogragh of a group of
people and think.."who's that fat guy?" then you realize its you...you sometimes catch a
glimpse of your fat self in a store window or passing a mirror... and you dont recognize
YOU. you think..surely not..!! and yes it is.... and.... oh God ! the moment of horror
to make the mental picture of yourself....a readjustmenr to blockout that horror...
As a fat guy I have become adept at denial on many levels.... for instance I always
carry around in my head at least 2 versions of what I look like... from the trim to slightly over weight... the real me- the belly...the chin.... the round face... it all gets buried in denial.
I was also in denial about something else too....the fact I was a compulsive overeater..
there I was at my fattest....cruising along the sidewalk toward McDonalds...( when I say
cruising I dont mean I was a great walker...I was more like lumbering )
Still there I'd go... walking toward the golden arches....smelling the oil...the meat...
the buns... fully intending NOT to order fries.... and stuff them into my mouth like a
buzz saw..! and then...Click... something would happen.... I'd be there and order...this was the
exact moment of denial.... I KNOW I shouldnt do it...but I did.. I KNEW I would regret it..
I did.. I KNEW I would punish myself... I did.
I move forward..the decisions been made....then you binge...step inside that little world
of pleasure...INside the binge you are Outside of yourself... where things are more clear..
your hunger is bigger... your cares are less....pure appetite...nothing else. It does the
trick...it works... Meanwhile in the real world... the world of me being fat again...
the world of lumbering...I have banished it...it doesnt exsist..It has BEEN Denied !

Why do people overeat.?? many reasons...from physical...emotional... etc...
I know I hated myself for it...I knew I would overeat....I been doing this since I was
a kid... but High School sports... then 9 yrs in the Army..and then competition in dualthlons...
worked....but once I stopped... the Hunger needed to be fed....I needed a binge....
a compulsive cycle... stepping into my binge made me feel guilty about the binge...
embarking and causing another binge...
Addiction I think is about wanting to BE hungry.... about the need to be unsatisfied.
this I think is the truth.... but for the longest time I sought to deny it...
Now... I EMBRACE it.. I live it daily....every Meal...every hour... every day..
I calculate my meals...my meal times... I eat for fuel not for pleasure ( sure I make
good dishes and tasty..) but not for Pleasure to satisfy my addiction....
I am a food addict....... I am like others with other addictions.. I thank God daily
I dont have any other bad habits or addicitions.... but....this one...controls my life.
controls my needs.

I am here because I NEED support.....I fight my addicitons by watching you all
fight with yours....fight and deny.. I never like to see someone say... I messed up again.
I ate bad all weekend.. cuz I KNOW that feeling...and the feeling of physical sickness
inside you when you do........ its time I broke that habit... this time...I fight.. 35 lbs
down...I AM going to Punish this addicition...challenge myself daily to stay the course..
say the serenity prayer.. cuz I cant always change things I cant control.....BUT..
I CAN control this damnnn addicition and Denial !!!
Jarrod,

hey, just wanted to tell you I LOVE posts like this!
You are so amazing sweetie.

You are so going to do this.

WEDNESDAY....Captains log...... haha...
(recap of Tues...didnt lose....but ate good......had two workouts... 60 min in morn
and 25 in afternoon )

Ok..well today I am doing great..... I hung out with two buddies last night
or who lives in Cali I went to HS with...and another who lives here....
We went to have some buffalo wild wings.... and I had 1 beer ( it was MANdatory
on my Man-date ) with the wings.. watched some womens college hoops..
Conn then Oklahoma...

Left took my 1 buddy to his hotel ...went to my house....didnt watch Biggest loser
cuz it was 11..( I record on my DVR ) and I had to get up at 5.....gym time.

GOT up.......did 70 min on the cross ramp...( I DIDNT weigh today !! I totally
forgot...and the stupid Dr. scale at the gym...is off like by 4 lbs...
and I didnt even wanna see that ! ) so I wil wait til tomorrow....)

Came to work feeling good.... did some posts to all my Low Carb sisters
( or at least the ones who came here in the last day to visit me ) haha..

Now the next WEEK will be a lil tough for me........... I am headed outta town
to Indianapolis on Business... I am leavin in the Morn ( thurs ) and will be there
till next Wed..... SO livin in a hotel can be bad and good....bad if I am in a hurry and
have to eat out a lot....
Good if I buy things and take them to the room to eat.... ( but when I go places
I like to go adventure out and check the area ) so....I WILL WILL WILL be strict..
I have came too far... the hotel has a work out room so I am good with that...
I will still get up in the Morn at 5:30...workout daily !!

I will be working every day.....so I will be on site, not at my desk here at work by my
computer... soo.. I will be going through serious withdrawls from my amazing support
group here for a week.Maaan this is the worse part ! haha.
but... I can prevail..
** REMOVED INFO*** WARNED FOR STALKER ALERT ADVICE ( Wink * )
if you have yahoo messenger.. jd.bigdog in my sign on ( and email )
I have it on mobile so I can check in on my phone anytime... its all good..
I should have time in the eve at the hotel to catch up a lil here and there....

So........ I hope everyone has a GREAT day and great Week...... HANG in there and
Stay strong.... I rely on all your strength to keep me keepin you strong !!
( did that make sense?? hahha...)

Adios and laterz to ya'll !!

Jarrod

Hey Jarrod! Stopping by to check you out! Don't worry about the hotel, I have no doubt in my mind you will prevail! Like you said you have come to FAR!! Don't screw this up. I am counting on you to report back that you stayed as strict as you said you would. I will be sending you "on-plan" vibes while you are away!

Be good!

Lata!

Marlette stole the words out of my mouth (fingers). I'll be waiting to hear about how things went. Sorry i've been MIA (you probably didn't notice though with all the gorgeous women around to keep your journal warm!). Are you purposesly finding hotties to visit the journal?!?

Oh Dude..
well the trip will be a good test of your resolve.. it can be done.

I have a list of "travel" foods in my computer I am going to post for you..
if you have a mini fridge they may help.. Patrick and I travel allot and this list saves me often:

LC Travel Foods:

Pork rinds
Celery
Mac nuts
Jerky & slimjims
Vienna sausage cans
EAS Shakes
Atkins Bars
Diet sodas
WATER
Cooked bacon
Containers of whipped cream cheese w/ mixed in sunflower seeds & a spoon


I am always adding to it.. hope it helps.. maybe you can check it from the road?

You KNOW you can eat LC at just about any rest. so do it dude!!!

Patrick and I went on a 10 day vaca last year and if I can stay on (I am such a serious foodie) you can too..

Good luck and have a safe trip!
Cary~
