With moving and nesting I have been eating rather terribly.  But in the last 4 days I have managed to make a green drink 3 mornings.  The fourth day I did eat breakfast, but it was cheese eggs and kale.  I KNOW I have more energy when I eat breakfast, but I'm having some mental block about it.  I think I'm rebelling against being a type 1 diabetic.  It takes so much energy to try and stay on top of it that trying to change habits makes a part of me feel like I'm being forced to do something I don't want to....even if I want to with the rest of my head.  That's why I don't do food journals.  It makes me want to cheat ALL the time.

And it only takes the one green drink in the morning to ensure no more trouble with constipation....for me at least Grin

I was seriously thinking over the past few days of how much time, energy and money I have spent in my life trying to lose weight/get healthy...I sort of feel resentful that not everyone has this struggle, but as my friend says, then it would be something else!  So, I guess this is my wheel to carry around the rest of my life; I might as well accept it and get on with it!  I made a small list of things I would like to do that I don't do because of how I feel about myself as I am...yeah, everyone says just do them, but I won't...

Mare--I like the simplicity of your plan...I am going to check to see if that book is available for my Nook...I actually love all the foods you mentioned...

naantje--welcome...I hope we can all help you in some way to reach your goals...you are young and starting young will help you now and in the future...I wish I had a support group like this when I was younger...but, we can all improve our health with some changes

I commit to drinking more water!  I can't believe how many diet sodas that I have been drinking...I never used to drink them but just got in a bad habit of it over the last few months!  I told my hubs to get bubbly water instead...so I will drink that, my herbal teas, and my one cup of coffee...

I'm down about 10 pounds since Saturday, which is probably normal for the first week and cutting out so much of the salt and processed foods and stuff and now I think my weight loss should be a more normal 2 pounds a week or so. I'm not really feeling deprived but I'm not being crazy strict. One day this week we hadn't eaten much for the day and we had 2 eggs with toast for dinner, and last night I pulled some homemade bean with ham soup out of the freezer to eat. But other than that I've been pretty much on plan and haven't had any sugar other than fruit or any processed food other than bread (and you're allowed one starchy veg or serving of bread or rice or pasta a day), and I've only been eating my 3 meals, not snacking in between or at night, which is also huge for me!

I'm honestly not hungry or craving things, which is kind of a wonderful feeling in itself!

Thanks for the welcome Smiley It's my third day of logging food again (going to bed in a bit, done eating for today) and I can allready tell it's having an effect. Not that I'm eating a lot healthier yet or anything, but the consciousness is coming back. I'm counting calories (I use livestrong), and I've calculated both the maintenance level (daily calories I can eat without gaining weight) which is about 2200 a day, and 1 pound a week loss, which comes down to just over 1700. I ate over the maintenance level today and wednesday, and was just at maintenance level yesterday. I ate an average of 625 calories over my weight loss goal every day. Not good!

I'm not stressing yet: I need the time to readjust, and I CAN already feel my mentality changing again. When I'm looking at a cookie, I'll wonder: are you worth messing up my tally today? My mind is switching back to the calculating, and I can allready identify a pattern. Last time, I really had to fight 4 PM snacking, but that's not my issue anymore. Right now? Snacking in the evenings. We're having supper earlier now (we used to have dinner around 8pm, it's closer to 7pm now) and I feel the urge to eat (and overeat!) later on. I need to either find a healthier kind of snack or make sure that I have a calorie allowance for the evenings. I would usually do cauliflower, but it has too much vitamin K in it, and that messes with my pills...

Also: I rode my bike to the hospital today, and my blood values are good again Smiley It's only the second time that they're okay, so I'm really happy. I hope the weather will keep allowing bicycle rides. Today was 7km, last Monday (a holiday), we did 36km, it's good.

@Mare: nice start Smiley It will slow down a lot though, or at least, it should if it's a healthy diet. After the first 2 weeks, losing more than 2 pounds a week is generally considered not safe/sustainable, but the first 2 weeks often have an initial rush.

@alwaysinmyroom: don't let it hold you back! I'm planning a sexy photoshoot with a good friend of mine who is an amateur photographer, even though I'm still as heavy as I am today (and with a BMI of 31.4, I can assure you I AM heavy) because I feel I shouldn't have to wait until I reach that perfect weight. After all, my boyfriend loves me and thinks I'm sexy as I am today, and there must be something to it. I'm putting off this weight to become a healthier person, but who I am now is just as valuable as who I'll be when the extra pounds are all gone. Is it scary as hell? Absolutely! Is it going to be totally worth it? Totally! Pick one thing on your list that you would like to do, but currently don't because of how you feel. Try to make at least that one thing come true for you. The rest might well follow!

awww--what great advice...I know I am harder on myself and have to just learn to live and love the extra pudgey me! Cheesy

I have cut out most snacking mindlessly by having to write things down...writing things down shocks me...like eating two pop tarts is 440 calories EACH...and who eats just one in the wrapper?  wow...

My doctor wants me to get three inches off my waist by end of summer...it will help me with my hip issue not to have the tummy...

Mare--as usual, you have some great ideas and inspiration...

well I am starting another round of HCG, it works well for me. Weight loss is dramatic and stable, until I stop watching what I eat, eat rubbish and stop weighing myself every morning! So it is a 21 one day round. it is a PITA in some respects, but incredibly detoxing and nice to get rid of all the artificial everythings out of my system.

see you in 21 days about 18lbs lighter...that is about my usual loss for this diet...then I will be breaking out the no carbs and no sugar recipes for another 21 days..then back to normal..draconian, but it is worth it...

a quickie recipe for those who need an ice-cream-ish treat...extremely healthy

take about a cup of frozen raspberries per person, add some stevia to taste, a splash of water and use a stick blender or processer to zuzz it up until very smooth...voila, raspberry sorbet...very yummy

If anyone can get their hands on a Ninja blender, I have an ice cream recipe similar to Edel's (it only works in the ninja due to the 2 blades it has) I use the food processor bowl, perfect size!

3/4 cup skim milk
2 pkts artificial sweetner if you like
18 frozen strawberries (or about the same volume other frozen fruit)-NOT thawed!
Place in blender, pulse until thick.
It has the consistency of slightly soft soft serve ice cream! Only 200 calories for about a pint!

ALSO: Since Feb. I have lost 8 pounds and completed physical therapy! I am back to running! Still slow and steady (and pokey) but I'm doin it! Woooooooo!

I was away for 2 weeks so you can just imagine what I was eating, oh boy. 6 days were camping with meals provided and the food was spectacularly wonderfully healthy, I just can't choose only one or 2 items from a buffet though so I end up eating a bit of everything and then feeling sick. Ugh.
I'm home now, as soon as I get everything unpacked and the house straightened out I'll be back on track. And I'm going to start an intense work out program (Shawn T's Insanity, wish me luck!) so at least I'll burn whatever nonsense I eat, lol.
