SIX WHOLE DAYS!

SIX days on Super Low Carbs. And I am on a roll. I really am doing it. Finally. Finally. I have myself under control .... my mindspace is finally in the zone. THANK GOD!

Today , well first thing this morning actually... I'm off to see the Doctor. HIS idea. To talk about my issues. To try and help me cope better with all the crappy things that happen in life. I need to learn how to KEEP away from food when upset/bored/lonely etc!

SO... ONWARD....

Dr's visit: well he's one of those people that keeps saying "And what do YOU think YOU can do to turn things around?" and so on. Don't think it is very helpful when you SIMPLY DON'T BLOODY KNOW and that's why you are there asking for help! Anyway... I shall go again NEXT Wednesday and see how it goes ... AGAIN.

After being there I drove down to the mall... and went to the movies! I saw 'It's Complicated'... it was a nice romantic movie.. and I enjoyed it. I DID not enjoy the $45 parking ticket I got cos I had parked in the wrong carpark! DOH! Win some, lose some.

Now I'm home and Teddy is (as per usual) licking my feet.... he loves smelly feet. YES, we have a weird dog! And I shall do a few chores around the house... and think about what we shall have for dinner.
My 'diet' is SPOT ON still ! I took a salad to the movies! And Diet Coke...of course.... lol.

ABOVE: Northridge Surgery. I'm going there tonight to listen to a seminar on Lap Banding. I am feeling 50/50 on this option for me right at this minute. There are a few pro's and con's that I have to weigh up for a while before I make a decision. But knowledge is everything.. so off I go.... (well, I will as soon as Stew get home eh?)...
End of Day... and I am older and wiser... but not much! The seminar really didn't tell me anything I didn't already know... except that it costs between $17 and $18 thousand dollars. I have a lot to think about. nite nite .
OH and ANOTHER day TOTALLY ON TRACK. Low Carbs is easier than I thought... with the right mental attitude.

  1. Good on you!! One point I'd like to make is that when you are low carbing, your hunger is not so bad so it is much easier to stay away from food when bored and lonely! I hope you are noticing the lack of appetite.

    Don't do the lapband surgery! I know 3 friends who had it done and they have nothing but trouble! They go out for tea with friends then chuck it up. You lose your quality of life. Its not foolproof, they manage to put on weight too, by eating shit. They are really regretting geting it done.

  15. It's actually quite easy no matter which eating plan you follow - when your head's in the right place. But sometimes it's just so bloody hard trying to get the right mind set - but it sound like you've finally got it - you deserve it - you've been looking for it for a long time. Viva la good headspace!!! Zxx

    That, my girl, is a LOT of therapy. I would try everything - inc low carb if you want - before you did that!

    Hi Chris,

    Job well done on the last 6 days.... I have battled with weight since 1994 and I have to say its more in my head than what I put in my mouth, I had counselling to sort out why i was eating..... Pretty much food was my choice of drug, rather than alcohol or actual drugs for instance.... Having said that I am banded and I dont regret it one bit, god knows what size I would be if I was not... and I did only do my counselling after being banded for things that happened to me when I was a kid...

    You will know in your heart what is the right decision for you.

    Keep up the good work...

    Wendy

  22. Hmmmm.... I am only watching calories but even though I'm doing well, the weight is taking forever. Maybe I should think about low carbs.
