Recommended Posts

hey glimmer! you meals look/sound so awesome! giving me some great ideas and inspiration! i'm round the corner of day 7 and really looking forward to a better week. my first was week was not as great as i had hoped/expected.

are you finding it much easier this time around? or do you think you're just more aware of the challenges and you know how best to combat them now vs with your first w30?

I have been reflecting on my last week and have decided to cut my carbs a bit to hopefully head the scales downwards over the next couple of weeks. Fingers crossed I can do it. Hoping this focus will make me concentrate on eating to hunger signals other than my mouth wanting something lol

I admit I am a little daunted by a couple of things this weekend, but I am prepared to stick to my guns and come out the other side in one piece. : )

I found it in my local Bushy Park fruit and veg wholesale (Diamond Creek). They don't always have it.

Day 17 and I am calling it quits. I have been really struggling with ED/OCD tendencies this time around and need to stop thinking about food so much for a while. I am annoyed with myself but have been doing lots of thinking, reading and talking about it and this


Made me cry with relief and felt like permission to let go and ease up on myself.

I might come back at some point but for now so long, and thanks for all the fish : )

You are doing well glimmer, learning more about yourself each time. I loved that article too. I really struggled for much of this 100 feeling like I was binging on nuts and fruit and coconut and even put on a fair bit of weight but I was able to push through this time and get to a much better place. It may not last forever but I have formed some new good habits which will hopefully help me slowly achieve the changes I am looking for. I hope you do too when the time is right/

PS giving up coffee was a major factor unfortunately, couldnt believe how much it messed mne around but 100 days of food logging tells it how it is!
