Back up to almost 150 again (149.6), and pants are not looser I usually lose the most in the first couple of weeks of being strict, but it's not working now. Not sure what I want to try?

Jeanie - the only way I have lost anything recently is because of cutting calories (800 calories most days), counting carbs (net 25 or below), no snacks or binges and making myself walk. When I look at my food log at the end of the day, I've noticed that my fat intake is greater than any other percentage! I've started to include coconut oil in my diet.

You may have already answered this question, but do you track your intake?

I really don't like to count boo hoo for me right! But I guess I'll try it for a few days and see where I am.

Have a lot on my mind- feeling really insecure about my life and my role as a mother and wife. I dunno what's up? Hopefully it will pass.

2 weeks of induction netted no fat loss. I am going to try a low(er) fat low carb for two weeks and see how that works. Did well today, so far not hungry.

Sorry to hear that, Jeanie

I think it is worth trying lower fat and perhaps counting calories?

Sorry you are feeling down....life is bewildering at times and we muddle through it....sometimes it is great and sometimes it sucks, but most times it's rewarding. Whatever it is, remember "this too shall pass" and you will continue to persevere. Don't we always!?!

When I start to feel like everything around me is going against me, I leave the house and the people that cause the issue. I go outside to work in the yard or I go window shopping by myself. It helps me reflect on me and what makes me happy, not what makes anyone else happy. And isn't that more important than always trying to do what makes them happy and never getting anything in return.

Maybe this isn't even what's going on with you....but remember you are not alone...we are women and we are complex creatures that need to support either other.

And let me add...all the weight I lost last week is back because I lost control over two days time...go figure! I'm thinking about giving up right now.

Don't you dare give up Susan! Thank you all for the words of encouragement, I most definitely let things that are out of my control affect me too much.

I am trying lower fat and tracking calories for now.

Wow just spent some time reading back through this journal. I have quite a pattern going here. I was in the 130's in August and it's been downhill since. There does appear to be a hormonal aspect- every month or so I get really down and scary depressed! I don't get a period, so I sometimes forget that mood/eating changes could be triggered by hormones changes.

I debate about whether this journal helps me or makes me feel bad about myself, but like what I discovered today.

Jeanie- I know that my binges are hormonal for sure. I am glad that you went back to read your journal you see the pattern there. It is really helps to justify the depression and binges. The question is what to do about it. I am trying to figure it out myself. But at least we know that it is hormones and we know when to expect things to go out of hand.

Susan-sorry to hear that you lost control I had 1 day last week when I went ballistic with calories (Thanks PMS) but after 2 days weight came down. I thank JUDD for it. One or two down days takes care of the damage. NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Plan as of today, I am keeping a written journal to see how my hormones affect me over a month or so, and hopefully gain better control of my eating.

Today:
Calories- 1,173
Fat- 57%
Protein- 34%
Carbs- 9%

So far this is working better than higher fat, jeans are fitting better already. I think the high protein is keeping me full, soon I will get brave and add back in more veggie carbs, but for now I am leaving things be.

Have only been having coffee in the morning and not eating until around 2ish. This has not really been planned, but is happening naturally. I guess I must be in ketosis because hunger has been very controlled.

Hi Jeanie! Thanks for asking.
It is going well. Except last evening when I stuffed myself with almond muffins. It was first day of TOM, so I am thinking my sugar went down or something. I have also lowered my carbs too low for the past 3 days. I was doing better with more carb veggies, I think. But I am not too concerned as it was just one evening. Today I am not having any cravings but feel the effect of the honey that was in the muffins (feeling tired). Overall I had very smooth PMS. Actually 2 cycles have been good since starting JUDD, so I am happy about it. This binge last evening caught me by surprise as I thought I was out of the woods

Fantastic job, Jeanie! I think by lowering your fat your calories automatically went down. Fat has lots of calories!

Feeling a little bit hungrier the last couple of days, but am going to keep things the same and see what happens. Higher fat has never made much of a difference anyway.
Sleeping well, no hot flashes and am not depressed
