You're on a roll Julia!!!
Thanks you guys, your support is awsome This diet is such a mood boost lol
I decided to "treat" myself today with a small Wendy's chocolate frosty, I only had 5 or 6 small bites & couldn't stand it, it tasted gross & made my stomach hurt, WHAT A CHANGE!!! Normally I'd be scarffing that thing down no problem, so I sat it back down & when I got to playgroup I threw it away It felt so good NOT to want it!
Okay so then dh is working late, I'm just getting home from playgroup at 5:30pm and thought okay, gonna be lazy & get the kids Mcy'd's for dinner, we've not been there in months (if not longer) so I got myself a hamburger, fries & a drink and felt SO SICK after eating it that I wanted to make myself throw up, but I totally refused to even think about the idea - I WANTED to feel horrible so that I'd never do it again :rofl: And lemme tell ya, I'm cured lol
This, however, has also brought attention to another thing that I need to address, which is treating myself with food - that is a big no no & something I really want to change within myself, food is a major, and I do mean major comfort thing for me & I want it to be less so, so I need to find other things to do & ones that are satisfying. I hate clothes shopping I find it depressing, but now that I'm losing weight & plan on losing A LOT more I think this would be a fun goal ~ maybe treating myself to $5 put into a savings jar for a new outfit, & doing this everytime I want to eat something as a "I've done good, I deserve it" sorta thing. Hopefully it'll work, if not I'll try something else - I think the biggest thing is to make it feel satisfying b/c that's what food does.
On a side note, I've been doing really good about not eating late at night ~ I've always been a late night eater but I'd like to stop by 7pm, 8 the latest. The last couple of nights I've done good ~ but it's been SO HARD! The nice thing is that when I do eat at night I've been eating good, like some nuts, or a low fat string cheese & it's not caused me to gain.

WTG on the self control at the movies Chimmy, its wonderul that you can take a bite and not have to eat the whole thing Especially WTG on the frosty! Kind of like me with the coke. Just doesn't taste good anymore!
I found that greasy fast food makes me sick now too. I tried to eat some chinese food the other day, yuck.
I think the $5 in a jar idea is a GREAT idea. A much better way to treat yourself, since treating yourself with food isn't really a treat in the end. I may steal your idea
I'm down another .8 this morning making it a total of 8.2lbs lost! Seriously it almost feels unreal how EASILY this weight is slipping off, it's also amazing to me how good I feel, I'm not hungry, I'm eating and even being bad more than I should be ~ it's interesting to think that all I've really cut out is white stuff, white sugar's (for the most part), bread & pasta & potatoes completley and a few other things and it makes ALL the difference with my weight!
I stepped on the scale a few times this morning b/c I couldn't hardly believe it lol I'm enjoying right now though b/c I know it wont last & I will slow down, it's all just very modivating, especially with how much I struggled while on WW'ers.
Oh steal my idea all ya want! lol It would be fun to see how much we had in the end, and then share what we bought! Isn't it neat though, to think "Chinese food & coke?" "McDonalds & ice cream?" YUCK! lol
That is SO NOT how I was 2wks ago :rofl:
I wanted to put these article's in here, wren shared them in the W/L forum ~ I found it to be SO modivating! This WILL BE my husband and I before ya know it ~
This one was very inspiring too!
Dang it Chimmy you're making the SBD sound very appealing. I swore I wouldn't try another diet plan but posts like that make me want to change my mind!
Sheesh and those pictures are making it harder. Maybe I'll check out one of their books.
Honestly, even though I've only been on this 6 days I really do forget that I'm on a "diet" and I LOVE THAT, b/c this is honestly how I am going to eat for the rest of my life & FINALLY after all these years of dieting, I have found something that I can honestly say I love, I feel satisfied on, I feel healthy & clear mentally & most important, that I can live with for the rest of my life.
I have had tons of friends do the SBD and I thought they were crazy, "all that low carb crap" - boy did I have no idea what I was talking about LOL
I felt the same way when I first heard of it. I thought it was a stupid fad diet but it's not- not at all!
lol Glad I'm not the only one who thought that, I'm happy that I finally got a ticket to the clue train
though b/c it's a great way to live and eat.
I'm down 1.4lbs in a day, I'm not sure how much I hold to it though b/c I didn't eat much yesterday, I had a TERRIBLE headache, my guess is it's af related b/c she's due tomorrow or the next day, so I didn't eat much & threw up dinner ~ bleh So because it's fun to see my weight loss ticker go UP in lbs lost I added it LOL And I don't think I'm going to weigh myself for a few days, I LIKED seeing 225.4 on my scale this morning, it was fantastic I'm *exactly* 10lbs down from when I first started trying to lose weight, which was in November of last year, I weighed 235.4.
Okay ~ so speaking of the scale, dh and I have been weighing every morning I think were becoming too obsessed LOL and I can get very OCD about it so I would like to catch this nasty little habit before it gets out of control. My goal is to weigh every other day for the next week, and then every 3 or so days for awk, then once a week consistently from there on out, I really don't want to become a scale slave.

10lbs thats awesome! I always feel really good when I hit that 10lb mark (we'll just forget about that not feeling well/throwing up part )
