I think you're narrowing in on the culprits, Sirtain. Now that you have some suspects I bet you can do some further testing to see which one(s) are really to blame. After all the time and work you've put in, I'd hate to see you not get to the root of it.

And size 12s - HOORAY! That's wonderful!

I'm working on ripping out and replacing some flooring, so I will be absent for a bit.

Annoyed with my weight. For no good reason, but there it is.

The floor is half-way done. I am rarin' to go this morning, and both Honey and Littlest are sleeping in, so I can't get started!

Annoyed? But you're doing so well! If you're like me, and god help you I hope not, I get ecstatic at a new low and then in just a day or two I'm greedy for more and hate the new weight. Crazy! I've never denied it.

I'm bouncing a little. For good reason- I think I am figuring out which foods are upsetting my system, but finding out, means eating them, and then, wham, I get some inflammation and hold on to weight. And, I am at the high point in my menstrual cycle. So, I should be expecting these temporary higher numbers, and I guess I do, INTELLECTUALLY. But EMOTIONALLY, I'm irked.

Oh, well, just keep on, right? A week from now I'll probably be satisfied with the scale again.

I finished the sewing room floor, and have started on the master bedroom. Yesterday we moved all the furniture out, and Littlest and I ripped up the carpet and hauled it out. Today I took out the pad, but it is mostly my day of rest. If I get the urge, I might work on prepping the floor(removing firring strips, smoothing out bumps, pulling up staples). But only if I feel like it. Tomorrow, back to work with a vengence.

That drink sounds really good, Sirtain. Sounds like you're making progress on those floors!

Man, am I hungry today. Been watching football, and the commercials for the fast food places are excruciating. Looking forward to my breakfast tomorrow(kippers!).

I've been thinking

(The kippers were delicious.)

I was quite hungry yesterday, but I didn't eat, and it got me to thinking about some of the lessons that JUDDD has taught me.

I am finally learning patience. Not waiting because I HAVE to, but choosing to wait.

I use to have a behavior when I wanted some 'treat' that I felt I shouldn't have. It would pop into my head, and although I carried out a charade of, 'will I, won't I' I really knew inside of me, that as soon as I decided I wanted it, I was going to have it. Usually I just held off for a few hours, and often, I ate a whole bunch of other stuff first, as an attempt to trick myself out of it. It never worked.

Now, when I think of something I want, there is never the element of 'will I, won't I'. I know I can, all I have to do is wait. And somehow, waiting has become easy. I don't just manage to hold off for a few hours, and then give in, kicking myself. I can put it off for a day, and not be driving myself crazy.

Removing the aspect of 'all or nothing' has made it possible for me to be in control and sensible.

Which sounds backwards, because many people hear about Alternate Day Fasting and think/say 'That's so extreme! Feast or famine!'. But instead, it has led me to moderation.

I do not agonize over a big bag of m&ms and guiltily scarf them after trying to avoid them with steak, then broccoli, then bread, then chocolate chips. I wait, and enjoy them the next day, when I am hungry and want them. Then I eat something else the next time I am hungry. Or, I eat more m&ms, and enjoy them again, and go back to regular eating. I am not stressing about it.

This does NOT mean I am not hungry. I am. Nor that I don't think about food. I do.

But I have also learned that hunger is not an emergency. It is okay to be hungry. Now that my hunger is because of lack of energy, and not from a sugar-crash, I don't have any crankiness, or shakiness from it. I'm just hungry. So my body makes the extra trip to the energy stores and gets some out for use. And no, it is not the best feeling. But it is just a feeling, and I am well-nourished enough that it is not going to kill me. Or even hurt me. I can patiently wait through it.

Also, when I say I have learned these things, I mean, not that I have heard them, and accept them. I knew all about patience and hunger before, in an intellectual sense. But now I have LIVED them. I know them not just with my brain, but with my body, emotions, and spirit, as well. I have absorbed the lesson.

That was one of the best posts I have seen! You really should post that over on the JUDDD board. Everything you said resonates so perfectly and is exactly how I have come to feel! JUDDD so much!

My Honey is closing in on his second goal: 165. He thinks he is going to go lower, because he wants a good amount of leeway. So, maybe 160. I am still one pound lighter than he is, but I don't know if I can 'stay ahead' for another 6 pounds. Men and their metabolisms!

Enjoyed my fish Up Day. I meant to eat SOMETHING on my Down Day yesterday, but by the time I got hungry, I still hadn't figured out WHAT to eat, so I did another water fasting day. This 4-day rotation is tricky. But I seem to have gotten past SOME of the feeling of deprivation. It is a turkey Up Day today, with figs, beets, spinach and mushrooms added in.

A man chatted me up in the grocery store. This is happening more frequently now. (Must not let it go to my head!)

Congrats to DH! He is doing really well! (It's not fair...)

Fun getting chatted up! You're looking good, no denying it! Enjoy the attention, girl.

I'm proud of him. He has a good attitude about it. And he's looking great! I love him with a paunch, but he's hotter without it! Now, if I could just get him to wear his pants one size smaller, so I could admire his ass and thighs more. But he's into 'baggy comfort'.

At least at 49, I know how to handle it. I will always wonder how much of my weight was put on as 'protection'. I got too much attention that was scary to me when I was younger, and not enough friendly attention.

Back at a Down Day. These water fast days are just too easy, in terms of thinking. As in, NONE REQUIRED! And I have been busy with a project, so that helps, too. But I'm starting to feel that I should have an eating Down Day, so I don't set myself up for any feelings of deprivation. At least I have that lamb broth ready today.

I guess the real difficulty is I don't want to 'use up' any of my food families (that rotation for sensitivities thing) on a day when I just can't be eating too much. It seems annoying. Yesterday, for example, was the only day this week that I can eat figs. But I had 6 of them! And as much turkey as I wanted to stuff into my mouth( 13 links, 5 slices bacon, and a pound of ground turkey).

Oh, well. I guess I can sacrifice the lamb family to the cause.

If I feel like it. )

Stayed the same

I post when I have those unexpected drops after an Up Day, so I thought I should also post that I stayed the same after a Down Day. No stress about it. I am at a weight (165.5) right now that I haven't seen in over twenty years. I am happy to hang out for a while.

And...went down

Next Down Day- down 2.5 pounds. Worth remarking because I am now at fewer than ten pounds until I get to my first goal! Woot!

I'm getting kind of curious in an intellectual way, to see how much I will go up from my Thanksgiving feasting, and how quickly it will come off. I'm certain that with JUDDD it will not take long. I might even be lower before Christmas than I am now! And who can usually say that?

What a good Thanksgiving!

Getting back on track, but not much time to post today. And really, not much to say, besides I enjoyed my food, and now I am enjoying Down Days again.

Sewing room and master bedroom done. Littlest's room, half-way. Honey's closet, still waiting. I took a break over Thanksgiving, but on Tuesday, it's back to work.

Just tried cutting the dogs' nails. What an ordeal! I'm letting the vet do it from now on.

Not much to report right now. I am doing an extended fast for medical reasons, which leads to boring posts. I can say that this morning my stomach gave the loudest and longest rumble I have ever heard from myself. It was pretty amusing.

Thanks, LCG. It's still uncertain. Depends on how my body reacts. I will say, I'm glad I have been doing ADF. I think it would be much harder if my attitudes to food and hunger had not changed.
