    So a 1lb gain :(

    I had a busy weekend and unfortunately pizza, chocolate and fries got the better of me.

    Was really on it this past week - not a big drop, but at least it is in the right direction!

    :( So disappointed in myself. This is my first weekly increase in 2021 and am kicking myself that I let it happen! Uggh.

    DO NOT beat yourself up! you are doing great. Think Big Picture! You got this!

    Thank you - unfortunately I am having a terrible weekend with emotional eating and (I’m embarrassed to even say it) bingeing. I need to get back on track like right now. I am reminding myself that I have lost 18 lbs already and don’t want to throw it all away. If anyone has any tips/tricks/inspirational thoughts I am all ears I really need some support right now. Even just some positive thoughts and vibes. 🙂 Thanks.

    I've binged from time to time as well. You're smart enough to know it's not because you're hungry. What it might be is you trying to hold onto the feeling that seems like the real you. I've noticed how differently I feel now that I'm dieting and exercising. That different feeling is still the real you, a better you. Don't deny foods you love, just enjoy them less frequently. You might try one or more of these techniques toward that end:
    1. Give yourself a challenge to lose a certain amount each week, and have a reward of your choice when you succeed. It's surprising how much this helps resist those moments when you see or smell something enticing, knowing that you can choose to have that as a reward in the very near future.
    2. When you are craving something, have just enough to taste. Like chips, take 3 chips from the bag, seat down and enjoy those chips, guilt free, savoring each one and telling yourself you can have some more in a few days time.
    3. When you feel the urge to eat, drink some water, take a walk, remind yourself what your real goal is.
    4. Know that the future you (the you you want to be) is counting on you to be strong, determined, and focused on the prize.

    All great points thank you. I have always been "terrible with moderation" so generally cut things out, but maybe I should work on #2 instead. It might work better for me.

    Many sociologists who study human behavior say most people are either moderators or abstainers. It sounds like @frankwbrown may be a moderator (JEALOUS!). I am definitely an abstainer--it is MUCH Easier for me to NOT start with something than it is for me to be moderate. I think it's important to know yourself and plan your environment accordingly.
    For more on this, Gretchen Rubin is a GREAT resource.

    That's an interesting observation. I guess I am a moderator, but that hasn't always been the case. There was a time when any treat wouldn't last long if it was in the house, so I tried to avoid having them around. This changed when, while visiting my older brother, I found myself at a water park being wheeled around in a wheelchair by my older brother, thinking to myself is this what it's come to? The day after I got back home, I joined my gym and started my diet. I saw my choice was between 1) treats and a wheelchair or 2) abstinence and health. So right now, I have some Flaming Hot Cheetos, Pepperidge Farm Cookies, Haagen Dazs Ice Cream, Ferrero Rocher, Macadamia Caramel Clusters, Cadbury Mini Eggs, and more. And for the most part, I am able to resist them. But I wouldn't call this a strength. I seem to need knowing that I have not given up these foods, but rather, have chosen to modify my habits, to eat them less frequently (and less copiously!).

    Find whatever works for you, and "when you stumble, make it part of the dance."

    Hi Gutbusters,
    I'm Amro and this my first time joining the challenge.
    Hope to lose as much as possible and change my lifestyle and relation to food and fitness.

    I lost weight many times solo efforts, and this time i'm interested to see how group support will do, excited.

    I'm a father, 37, 254 lbs and my goal for this month is to lose 10-11 lbs (5 kg) - 2.2 lbs/week
    I weigh on Fridays, see u there.

    It was a good month, thankfully.

    I was able to lose some weight and i wish isA to keep on.

    March SW: 254

    Almost back to my happy weight of a consistent 138-140...as I've gotten older, this is harder to maintain! No more weekend pizza AND wine AND desserts...it really sticks with me!
