    KellyBurghart got a reaction from jmcbn in I'm at a loss (or lack thereof) ...   
    @ladyshanny, @jmcbn, @CoffeeBean & @Bellmaestra ... thank you all for your comments, suggestions & support.  Your words truly choked me up.  Deep down, I know I'm probably fine where I'm at.  I know I shouldn't compare myself to others.  It's just so hard not to.  I don't have a single other physical, psychological, emotional, etc. complaint other than my weight.  I should just be satisfied with that.  I should be so lucky.
    I had never thought how keto or IF would impact a 42 y/o woman differently and it's sad that none of the studies have been tested on that demographic.  You'd think they'd be more upfront about it when presenting the information.  I'm appalled that my doctor even suggested it for me.
    I will try to start eating within an hour of getting up.  I'm just never hungry at 5 am.  I'm sure my body will adjust, though, especially if it's what's best for me in the long run.  I will also do better about eating three full meals and not a snack instead of the middle meal.
    I think I'll start when I get back from my trip, though, because I can't afford any weight gain just yet -- even if it's only temporary as part of the adjustment and healing process.
    I think fat is one thing I definitely crave.  The compliant foods I crave most are avocados and cashews.
    I agree that a number on a scale shouldn't matter.  I guess it's the wishing I could fit into the cute little clothes and wishing my husband could pick me up and carry me that I long for.  That, and knowing how hard I've tried for so, so long and it never seems to make a difference in my body size.  It just hurts.  
    I will work on all of this, though.  I promise.  And I'll try to report back if it helps.  Thank you all for your input!  XOXOX
