    I have been in a stall for 2 weeks. Its been frustrating, but today i weighed and measured again. Ive lost 0.3kg BUT i also lose 4cms off my waist. The waist measurement made me feel like this is really changing even if the weight isnt

    eclecticwingtips got a reaction from ella37 in Did anyone NOT have a miserable recovery?   
    I had some nausea in hospital which was managed with some meds. Minimal pain. Was on paracetomol when i left hospital. No vomiting etc.
    I was sore for about three weeks but nothing horrible. I was tired for about the same amount of time

    eclecticwingtips got a reaction from Jackmita in What is your favorite snack?   
    1 cup oats
    1 cup coconut
    3 scoops (90g) chocolate Protein powder
    Tablespoon cocoa powder (or more to taste)
    Blend together in food processor
    Add in 1 cup sultanas
    1/2 cup prunes
    Blend again. Add a little Water at a time till it looks moist but still separated. ( you can also add some coconut oil if you like)
    Stop and make into balls.
    Makes 30 balls at 50 calories each
    The amount of Water is dependent on the fruit. So go slow. If you can squish the mix and it stays together then it's right. You don't want it too wet

    Tries to understand how having a food addiction and having no issues with food can be congruent.... Oh wait they can't....
    Gina I'm sorry you are frustrated, sick, sad, angry and all the rest...
    But the first step is being honest with yourself. You have said a number of contradictory things about yourself and your journey. You are placing blame because you can't cope with the idea you played a role in your situation.
    Your lashing out at others while understandable is not acceptable

    I'm almost 4 months out and had a niggle or regret the other week cos I was in a stall and frustrated. But it passed very quickly. It's a long road and it is going to be bumpy but most of the time I've been really happy with my decision

    eclecticwingtips got a reaction from AvaFern in Having a date wtih a cheater   
    I refuse to think of less nutritional food as "cheating" or even self sabotage. I have eaten pizza, hot chips and even ice-cream since surgery but I plan them into my day and calories. I am aim eat well 95% of the time so I can occasionally indulge.
    In some ways this is harder because the tempting foods are present and they aren't 'banned'. But in life there is always temptation and yummy not so nutritious foods available and I'd prefer to work on my self control than ban food or feel guilty when it's eaten
