    I'm not hungry!

    For me, I find that if I have a large portion of fat with my first meal that I am not hungry until after 2 or 3. I do try to east a small meal at by 230. YMMV

Day 1: on plan although my last meal was close to bed time. Day 2: Meal 1done started laundry cleaning kitchen shopping Meal 2 still working on laundry listening to podcasts Meal 3 Didn't get all the laundry done but what I did is put away I can see the counters in the kitchen and the bottom of the sink Stayed on plan and making progress with the clean up.

    Still Living In Crazy Town

    Day 4 I managed to sleep in again so meal 1 wasn't until 1145. Off to shop for veggies at the market. Then prep for the work week. Stayed complete but only had 2 meals and a CHOMPS stick before going to the club. I feel like I made a success of a weird day.

    Been lost for a while..........

    I think it’s a good thing that we can do a reset on our life. It gives me the ability to keep trying to be a better me. Good health in the new year.

    #January start

    I’m Lydia. 67 yr old mom to a 19 yr old, full time healthcare provider and a work in progress. I’ve been able to complete one round but need to get back on track.
  11. I'm having the same problem to some extent. I do tend to be a night owl but am ready for sleep by midnight. Now I can't sleep and then I have trouble waking up.

    Whole30 and Egg Donation

    The biggest effect with anesthesia is that a lot of times patients are given dexamethasone to prevent nausea. It is a steroid and will increase your blood sugar for a day. It's not something that has to be given. Bless you.

    New Day in Crazy Town by LydiaJo

    New Day and a New Year. Day 1: I slept in so meal 1 was at noon. Dishes washed and put away. My kitchen and counter are in order. Kitty given a treat. Email answered. Now on to decluttering my bedroom.

    @CCLaymon, My daughter is a senior this year. I'm so not ready for her to go off to college, Good eating on the cruise. You might want to take your own olive oil for your salads. Also, check with the cruise line and ask about the food prep.

    Finishing day 2 and feeling great. I'm using my leftovers from dinner for my 1st meal the next day.
  24. Instead of thinking breakfast, lunch, dinner... think meals 1, 2, 3.

    Starting August 20!

    Re start on 20 Aug. Messed up this morning. After working 24 hours I went out to breakfast with the team. Lets just say you should never go out to eat when you are over tired.
