Stable Weight for TWO Years?

22 Sep 2022 2 Comments

 Goodness! I haven’t posted for two years! Wow! So, what’s my status? When I review my historical posts, it is clear that I have been focussed on dieting instead of the real problem: binge eating. However, over that last two years, I believe I have started focussing on controling the binging–and I think it’s working. …

Back to Keto

29 Jul 2019 0 Comments

Sadly, back to keto as of this morning. For a variety of reasons, I just couldn’t hack a diet including carbs. And Voom (?) wanted me to include ‘treats’ in my diet, hah, which is how a 1/2 cup container of Haagan Dazs ice cream turned into five and all five got eaten the first …

Sloggin’ Along

9 Jul 2019 0 Comments

Yup, sloggin’ along. Getting used to logging on Noom and learned something really worth it for long term: if you’re planning to eat something high in fat today for dinner, move other fats (like cream or avacado) to tomorrow. I think this is the way to have dessert once in awhile–the trick is once in …

First Week on Noom

7 Jul 2019 0 Comments

As we all know, you can lose weight on any diet. I, however, want only to lose weight but to STAY down. Noom swears it will teach me how to do that. So, what did I take away this week? Deprivation is a no-no. I have to practice eating appropriate amounts of my ‘forbidden’ foods. …

New app – Noom

1 Jul 2019 0 Comments

After two weeks of living with my daughter (recovering from c-section birth of twins)–and the accompanying stress, lack of exercise, squewed schedule, strange food, temptations (cookies, candies, chips, crackers–you name it)–I was a mess and had gained five pounds. Not bad at all considering that during that time I also had to vacate my apartment …

Storm on the Mediterranean

8 May 2019 0 Comments

I’m sure it’s not the Mediterranean’s fault, but I gained five pounds in a week. The reason was, no doubt, that I went to the grocery store and stocked up on food (bad, bad, bad: now there’s food in the house. A box of raisins is an invitation to binge) for financial reasons, fired my beloved …

Off Keto, On Mediterranean Diet

1 May 2019 0 Comments

Someone on Quora asked for a before/after picture of Keto, and I provided these showing -20#:   But, I think it’s time to move on. I’ve been playing around with keto metrics for three days, and even bought a membership in a new logger–Cronometer–but I just got overwhelmed by the amount of protein they want …

Binge Attack

28 Apr 2019 0 Comments

Humm, I think I had a binge attack last week also, so what’s up? Stress? Sadness? Psychic pain? Only one thing is clear: do not keep almonds in the house. Probably the second thing is that I will always choose carbs or fats over protein. I say that because I chose not to eat the chicken I …

New Set of Macros

20 Apr 2019 0 Comments

Re-examining those macros today raised the possibility of insufficient protein. This is what I’ve been doing: But checking out various calculators made it clear that I’m not getting enough protein.But then I ran into a very interesting site–Kiss My Keto–that tells me I’m not on a plateau just because my weight loss is slowing down. …
