Hi Findingme,

I made this diary to document the last leg of my wt loss journey & I know I'm going to get there, feel more determined than ever now.
Hey, that is good to read !! I know it is a hard journey for many, but the gains seem to outweigh the hardship.

It also seems to be even more "a journey of the mind" than it is a "diet". Stay strong and flick these last Kgs to the kerb, FM !!

Hi Lessthan,
Quote:
Can you perhaps direct me to diaries with people that had a total of 17 or less to lose. Will really appreciate it.
Check out the "Hall of Fame" - http://newyouforum.com/forum/view.php?pg=nyf_hof

It is ordered from "Most to Lose" down to "Least to Lose" - so the names nearer the bottom have a less than 20Kg weightloss journey. Click on the Diary against each name.

One I recall was not even in the HoF - and that is LittleMiss - go here to read of her journey:-
Plan Diary - http://newyouforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9443
Maintenance - http://newyouforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10063

There may well have been others too, but I was "away for about 4 years" and many may have slipped by in that time.

Hope it helps,

Koh

Default Re: Findingme's Diary,

Thanks Koh & Lessthan, I love getting replies😄

Sorry if my next bit upsets you, but it genuinely applies to myself & times.
"I abuse myself with foods because I believe I am broken & unloveable"
I can't remember when I found this quote but it really rang true for me. It also made me question my Cohen journey this time around. The first 30 KGS DF, in the zone, the whole lot. Since July, a mess. Could I do it then because it was so very obvious the broken bit, that I got approval, felt great & wasn't challenging the status quo. But where I am now is bleeding hard, I look 1000% better than when I started, getting comments that I've done enough etc, is it taking its toll. I may not now appear so broken or even unloveable to others now, so I can give up on my own goals because its acceptable? Not for me.

I think I need to change the quote to "I love & nourish myself with food by following the CLP because I am perfect & worthy of being loved & accepted just as I am, for being me" I put CLP because I intend it to become my lifestyle forever.

Sorry all, but I hope in a round a bout confusing way that the relevance can be seen.

Take care,
Jen

My NYF Diary
Default Re: Findingme's Diary,

Hi FM,

Wow !! Yeah, I imagine quotes such as that might ring true for some. I think too though, that the mind and the body are interwoven in so many ways, such that one action (small though it may be) from one "partner" can affect the other (i.e. an action of the mind affecting the body, or an action of the body affecting the mind).

On hear, even today, I am learning new things from all of you about HOW these complex interactions are shaping your futures. And it certainly doesn't appear to be "one size fits all", though there certainly can be similarities between each of you.

One piece I learned just last week was how even doing a "Reset" incorrectly can set one back onto the downward spiral. A reaction from the body thus has the mind over-reacting and accelerating the downward spiral. (By the way, if you aren't yet on Maintenance, you won't know about Reset - don't worry - just know how sensitive one part of you is to the other parts of you, and endeavour to "cut yourself a bit of slack" when things seem to be going wrong).

Where it has seemed to make sense to me, I've endeavoured to align lots of posts or topics within one thread so that you can get a heap of "the good oil" just by opening that one topic. As an example, have you seen this one? It's called "Important Stuff that often gets Lost".

http://newyouforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9170

As well, there are motivational threads where I endeavoured to highlight quotes or posts by Cohenites that sounded like they should be shared with all. One of those was the "Gems" thread - it has been neglected for a while, but there are some awesome contributions in there by "all of you" over time. Go have a read while you enjoy a coffee or ten overe a number of days perhaps - it is quite long and there are many awesome thoughts expounded within. Here it is:-

http://newyouforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3782

This "Gems" thread always was meant to be for others to share in - but please, it is not a diary. Keep it for those really special thoughts that you have read and you wanted to put them where others can find them.

Enjoy!! (i.e. smile, laugh, wonder, learn, cry, feel good, or whatever - a gem comes in many forms, emotionally speaking!)

Koh

Thank you Koh

Just to make you laugh, there is absolutely nothing about any part of the program that I don't know anything about. I know about RF, reset, maintanence guidelines, the amount you should be eating on M is your last day of RF pretty much, alcohol rules, sweets rules all the rules except it seems sticking to them😅 The only bit that throws me is mixing proteins, really, chicken & beef, fish & chicken, WHY? Sounds yuck to me!

Let's just say my ticker will probably die of shock the day I make it move towards my goal!
So to keep it safe, I'll weigh in & move it next week!
And remember, a fortnight from Monday to Christmas.
Take care
Jen

Just me
Weighed, wasn't happy, leaving ticker & keeping going. Was anyway until I went to eat a royal gala as supper, disgustingly floury, so refused to eat it!
Me for goodness sake. I know that many many of us have had meal disasters yet finished it anyway, but a floury apple is just asking too much. Had herbal tea instead.
So, a good day.
I was also busy between meals so that helped too.

Hi Jen

Hope you well. You doing great. I also cannot handle floury Apple's, so u not alone.

Trying very hard to stay focussed. Find that taking my baby for a 20 minute walk helps me feel good and takes the mind off deviating.

I've told myself that no matter what, the bare minimum I need to do is at least not gain weight....

Hugs

F

Aren't they the worst!
Well done for walking when you feel the Dev bug biting. My hardest time is after 9.30 at night though. I am not walking then😅

I agree, not gaining is a good thing, helps with not feeling bad after also.

Another day going well. I just want to be able to have enough days 100% to get into the zone & not have to fight this emotional, night eating nonsense!

Take care, you will get there F!
Jen

Ugh! Floury Apples suck! I had a rotten one at work the other day so had to bin it! Lucky I was busy so i didnít Ďneedí it. I find 3-4 oíclock in the afternoon is my weakness. I have been trying to save a fruit allowance for then. Iíve also been stocking up on Mangoes because I love them so I find if I have that to look forward to in the afternoons itís helping me stick to plan! As F said, as long as the scales are not going up then thatís not too bad. Keep going and donít give up! You got this ☺️

Thanks Tess
I also find having something to look forward to food wise helps too. I love apple/apricot slice at night since I've now declared apples as dodgy.
You sound like you're doing well.

Hey, LT, you were up very early. I'm more a night owl, get up before 7 for brekky then go back yo sleep.

Going well so far today, but night is still to come 😕 I do feel like I have this though, esp as last night when I couldn't get to sleep I just had a chamomile tea, last week it would have been Ovaltine (have discovered I can drink it without milk, how sad is that!)
Just saying, I wish my weight would move down as easily as it can go up & then stay at the heavier weight. Any one else experience this also? 😄

All the best everybody & take care.
Jen
