I’ve been doing this since 12/2016, after reading The Obesity Code.
After a health scare, very motivated to do it right, lost 40 pounds and diabetes symptoms subsided.
Spent six months working away from home, Relaxed my standards and continued to lose weight.
Came back home, tried to continue relaxed standard and weight is creeping back. Two days ago, I had a UTI, like the ones that started me on this course.
I’m BACK at day two for, like the twentieth time.
The pattern is, I feel empowered by no cravings and think I can “have a taste of something.” That leads to a days- or weeks-long bender. A death in the family sent me on a six month binge.
For the past month, I’ve been planning to do Christmas baking! Even bought a new Kitchenaid mixer to replace the one I gave away in 2016!!
I had 50 cookie and cake tabs open on my phone, and had a new Pinterest page for pastry chef recipes.
Fortunately, i caught myself. I’ve baked nothing, after living on cookie porn for a month!! The mixer is going back to the store. (The second time I’ve bought and returned a mixer this month!!!)
I cannot have “just a taste”
I need to attempt perfect adherence
I may need to start weighing.
This is just to encourage others, hopefully.
If there’s any advice, I’ll gladly take it. Am I insane?
