Hi tea I. Do feel really good not packing that wait. as for how long. I started this diet November 2008 lost most of it fast a few months then I started to struggle doing the few days good then binge thing. and not looseing much if any the only things that seem to keep me frum a binge is staying bizy and if I feel the erg to binge try to get my mind off of that. and keeping in mind that the erg will go away wether I binge or not. so its just not worth it because when I binge I eat alot my hunger skyrockets. sorry it took so long to get back to ya

yeah i totally understand that. Last time i was on this diet and got down to my goal the binging was so often that i lost a lb and then i gained 1 and i hovered around the same weight for a really long time.

Since getting back on this diet i know that i lost LOTS of days on binging and i could have lost the weight in half the time if i just focused more. Having said that i reallllllly want to prevent myself from binging this time. its the worst!!

hey dmac just read your journal from beginning and your 21 days was so inspiring! I want to loose lose 10lbs in 20 days (going to Aussie in 20 days). Do you have any tips on how you made it through the 21 days? would you recommend just doing snickers the whole time?

That shoud be a fun trip. I wrote down the reasons I was doing the 21 days on a peace of paper. and I would read it when I needed to re focus myself and that helped. the Snickers are good because there's no ? About the amount or size of your bites. just tell yourself you are doing the 20 days no matter what. don't give yourself an out and cross off. Each day on a calendar to count them down. and do your journal every day. and keep in mind that all the hard times pass. And try to stay positive you can do it.

i actually really love this idea of the 21 days challenge. I especially like crossing the days off on a calender. There is something about physically deleting a day off of a goal that makes it all that much easier to take. Im kinda allergic to chocolate, but i was thinking of doing something like this with energy bars since the sugar is lower and the protein is easier for your body to pick up, i suppose as long as the size is the same the 5 bites are still applicable.

Hey Dmac and Ladies,

I agree with Dmac. Having something that states what your goals are for you to look at really helps you to stay motivated. I have a journal that I carry around with me that has my goals, positive affirmations about myself and my life, things that I dream about accomplishing, a list of small rewards that I have made for reaching certain goals, etc. When ever I feel myself slipping, I grab it and begin reading over why I am on this journey. It really helps.

Dmac,

How have things been for you today? You are one of my inspirations. Just checking to see how you are doing.

Take care,

Readyforchange
