Default Daily Check In #3

The last one is about full use this one.

As for me it's day 4 and all I want to do is my addiction. I know it gets easier... Well to a point.

Unhappy Re: Daily Check In #3

Looking back over the past 6 months:
I have bounced around 10 pounds....170-180.
Today at 175 I am stuck right in the middle of that.

Default Re: Daily Check In #3

I have managed to stay at/under 164 (which is a 24.9 BMI) for 3 months and below 160 for a couple of weeks. I decided to stay under 160 because it gave me too much anxiety to be just under what I had determined was my new max (aka scream weight). I am around 157 now. This gives me room to spot a trend up and turn it around well before I get to 164, even on retained water spikes.
Last summer I was 223. That was toward the end of the summer when I started the diet. I had some small ups and downs during the summer and was over 225 a couple of times.

The single thing most responsible for my success is discipline. Motivation has a short shelf life. This is relevant on this forum because this is also true about beating addictions.

I tracked every single thing I ate, every day, no exceptions (even if I am guessing or picking a similar item that might be way off). I still do. I use myfitnesspal site/app for that. I bought a digital food scale and weigh food whenever possible; guessing at portions is a big source of inaccuracy.

I weigh every other day with few exceptions (weekend away or forgetfulness are the exceptions) always first thing in the morning before my shower. I still do. I set my calories goal to lose at varying rates during my loss, slowing down when I got closer. I eat pretty much whatever I want and just limit portions and make tradeoffs. the calories tracking app also shows me were I am with protein, carbs and fats and I just make sure I am getting at least the minimum of each.

I walk a lot and I don't log it all as exercise to give me more calories. A lot of people get into trouble because some of the walk tracking apps give you fantasy calories (way more than you burn). I adjust numbers based on results on the scale.

Addictive things spike your pleasure and then crash it, but the baseline lowers. So you get more highs and lows, and progressively more lows. [] In the healthy cycle, with anything, you get less extreme highs and lows and progressively more highs. [] So while the addict is controlled by pleasure, they actually have much less pleasure in their life.
