I am reading lots of afterlife books that are really interesting to me, also any diet book I can find for comparison and just for the knowledge. I also am reading lots about Diabete. So no steamy novels right now, LOL However, that will be next.... :D

Good Morning Ladies!! Good to see you all here this lovely morning in Missouri... :laugh: Actually its kinda dreary out there.. ugg....

So far so good on keeping my eating LC. I am trying new things and doing better. Everything is going well except my darn exercise! I can't seem to get into the groove, and I see everyone is exercising, makes me just wanna be in that place too... oh well, can't be too hard on myself..

I will check back at lunch, have a great day all! :up:

Gracie514 02-06-2012 08:10 AM

Good Morning Pati!! how goes it? :D

My eating is starting to really bore me even more than last week. YES , I am trying new things, but sometimes I just want to eat whatever I want.. like a baby...:laugh: The thing is that my BP is steady and down now, my blood sugars are great. I feel fine. I am just wanting wanting wanting.. not NEEDING things.

I am sure this is what got me in trouble in the first place. I use food for many things besides fuel. :( I know this is human nature, and all that, uggg..

Oh well. I will continue on as best I can until it just clicks... :laugh:

12yrslater 02-07-2012 05:54 AM

Have you considered JUDDD :dunno:

OF COURSE I HAVE!!!! :laugh: Tried it many times, but the DD kill me. I swear, I have no tolerance for hunger AT ALL. Plus, when I allow myself unlimited carbs, I undo all the good things I have achieved healthwise. I NEED DISCIPLINE!!! from inside. .. I am weak...:D

Morning Deb, glad to hear your levels have stabilized..that's wonderful! :clap:

I agree with Pati, have you thought about giving JUDDD a go? I know you can't go very low on DD, but maybe try as low as you can go...as long as it's a nice spread between days, I believe you can still get the same great effects. I was reading an article before that said the best way to rev the metabolism up is calorie cycling, it keeps the body guessing with minimum plateaus. I know you're doing this for health as well so let me go back there...you can alway incorporate eating moderate carbs with sweets here and there as a treat. It's a slippery slope that I admit, I'm afraid of as well but I want to not feel deprived, be able to eat what I want, and make it truly a lifestyle. I'm going to put on my big girl panties and take the dive on Sunday..giving me a week of P3...wanna join? ;)

ETA: ok, I just read your response to Pati, what about going higher on DDs?

12yrslater 02-07-2012 06:09 AM

You seem to be disciplined enough to do Atkins? Why would you not apply it to JUDDD BUT allowing yourself (ONLY IF YOU ARE CRAVING IT) a treat?

As far as down days go, you don't HAVE TO starve or start at the 500 cal mark. I believe i read that you can start higher and work your tolerance down?

I think If I look at it like you just pointed out and ALLOW A TREAT IF I WANT ONE on UP days, that may work. I just want to keep it mainly Low Carb. I will put on my thinking cap and read the book I just got in the mail yesterday. I MAY join you Shari!! Let me think if this will work.:up:

You are thinking the same way Shari is, MAYBE if I looked at it as a treat that I can allow IF I WANT, and not go crazy with it, it might work. I will do some reading from the official book and try to figure out what would work for me... i just know I am bored to tears right now.

Thank you BOTH!!!! :hugs::love:

Always hun! :love::hugs: I understand...I need to not have restrictions anymore and live, not afraid to eat what I want but learning more how to eat healthier. There are so many healthy options, I was just going to the full white carbs, sugary items with no end. I just have to make better choices with those options.
