    For a long time I've struggled with binge eating. I knew I was heading in a bad direction. This 30 days is me taking My control back. *karate chop*

    Hi everyone! Well, I lost 20 lbs. I tried to introduce a little milk in my coffee, only 2 tbs and I bloated and felt sick. Today I left my lunch and waller at home and we had a party at work. Despite there being every temptation under the sun I made the best choices I could and had a bit of desert. Just a bit. My stomach felt so weird and I felt like crap. Just reinforces that I want to stay as compliant as possible from now on! Well, I've been up for 20 hrs. Gotta rest! Rock in my friends!

    Hello everyone! Day 29 approaching, I can hardly believe it! My re intro is going to be a bit odd. I switch to day shift on Wed and do 3 in a row. I'm going to reintroduce a bit of milk in my coffee, but that's it, and maybe a grain Friday night? I can't be having reactions on the floor. This weekend we're going out of town for our 1 year wedding anniversary. I've made a decision to pick the healthiest decisions I can. I don't want to make myself sick. Ex: plain steak for anniversary dinner. This thinking and the actual WANT to do it us a huge nsv for me. Normally I'd just gourge! Just going to have to be careful in what I eat! Looking forward to next group.

    Hello everyone, glad to see so many posts as we draw to a close. I can't believe we did it! I see VoZelle ana Crimsan discussing a new thread. I look forward to that! (Or even continuing this one!) 4 days, wow!!! Has everyone got their plan ready?

    I thought the same "24 is almost as good as 30!" I've been struggling, but I think I may have figured out why: my body is used to burning fat now and if it doesnt get enough it gets pissy. I had to rush my breakfast today and boy did I feel it! You guys think that's why my tiger blood is poopy?

    Day 24, can you believe it? Congrats to us, and congrats to Shosh for not giving up. That's a sign of courage and commitment!

    HI Shosh! Ok, so you slipped up. And you've learned from it, which is what this entire process is about. Think about why you did this in the first place and create a plan for yourself. What triggered the lapse and what will you do differently in the future? Nothing is a failure when something has been learned. I think you see a lot if support here, so let us know what you need! You can do it!

    Hapfpint_aggie are you eating leafy greens? They are a good source of magnesium.

    Soooooo, I'm having a really hard time over here. I'm so tired and am in a kill all the things mood. I've been like this at least 3 days and it's really starting to wear on me. My poor husband came home from our hairdresser and I was so angry that she messed up his hair, irrationally angry. Why is this happening?

    NancyW thank you for that info! I was really getting down. It's been going on for a few days and I felt back to square one. My husband had been such a dear, not bringing food in the house, trekking me how great I'm doing. I really wanted to kill and eat all the things today. I am so thankful for this group. I could not have made it this far without you all.

    Kplake: I don't tell people what I'm doing. I just say no thank you. Otherwise I'm afraid I'll get snarky and say something like: I'm not crazy, you're the one who's headed toward kidney disease. Isn't it awful that eating well is considered abnormal? WE Can be cranky together. Hahaga!!!!

    I've lost my tiger blood, why oh why? I'm also having a hard time with the cravings, probably because we're getting so close. 22 days.....wow!

    Wow guys, day 18! NSV: had a horrendous shift last night, and I mean HORRENDOUS. Short nurses, families treating us bad, pts deteriorating with not enough nurses and families yelling at us.....lol!!! Normally I'd have a coke as my treat and, when I finally sat for the first time at 230 am, it didn't even cross my mind! There were donuts, rolls and muffins in break room and it wasn't even hard! Normally, my addiction takes over and I eat and eat! WHOOP WHOOP NSV! Sounds like day 18 is a little hard, but I hear you guys persevering through, and that's a nsv! *High five*

    Hello friends!!! How awesome are we- halfway there!!!! I had a nsv: loose pants! I was so dumbfounded I stood in my closet repeatedly pulling at the top in awe! To the lady with the diminishing muffin top, don't call yourself shallow! You deserve that confidence. High fives all around. Thank you all for your awesome posts!
