I do find temptations to be the worst!! I often like to eat at my mom's on days she has ds. She doesn't eat the best so it is hard. But her DH was diagnosed with diabetes so it has been more in line with my diet lately.

I broke down and had a cookie at lunch. I am trying not to keep eating them now.

I feel so tired and bloated so I am trying to use that as my motivation not to cheat.

I have been wanting to add spearmint to my list of things to take during my break.

My grandfather has diabetes and they still eat horribly haha. Though my grandmother is trying to cook better lately, but it still involves a lot of breads and pastas and such.

See that's the thing with temptation - I can't say "okay you can give in and have just one cookie so you don't go nuts" no I'll eat them all. I can't just have a little so that I can be having it. I have to go overboard. It sucks. Trying to work on it, but it's difficult.

It seems to be helping me. Will be interesting to see if it helps me ovulate. I've been ovulating on the inositol, but maybe a stronger ovulation or bringing it forward a bit. I've stopped my b complex too (but keeping my separate b-12 and folate) as I want to see if that's pushing O back, but that's a separate issue not diet related.

Just updated my lilyslim and was pleasantly surprised to find I've recovered from my fall off the diet wagon! I was sure I still had a couple of pounds, but I'm actually half a pound under when I last updated it! Score! This is the lowest I've been since I started my diet in March . 36lb down, 15 to go! I can do that by January if I keep myself focused.

Thanks!

I just feel I should be further along for having been doing this for 6 months now. Sucks it's so hard for us to lose weight. I yo-yo like crazy. I look at a carb and I gain 3 pounds. I'm 175 now with a bmi of 31 (I'm only 5'3") so I really don't want to go up anymore. I just cannot seem to get under 170. No idea why but I keep getting stuck around here.

But I have to keep telling myself I did lose 36lbs so I've done a lot even though I think I should have lost more by now.

Kylas- Congrats on the loss! Those are amazing results over the course of 6 months. Slow and steady weight loss means you will be less likely to gain it all back. Be very proud of yourself ! It's never easy!

I tend to eat something "bad" then think...well I already went off track so I end up eating a bunch of junk. I'm really trying to re-wire to be able to have a treat without overdoing it. It's so so so hard!

Jules - I think the same thing. I already messed up and had a brownie. What's 5 more? Same as one really....

Krissie - I'm glad today is going well for you. One meal at a time!

I was good today too. Though may have had one turkey meatloaf muffin too many for dinner. But they're soooo good! Down a little more this morning! Think it's a combo of the inositol, spearmint and low carb/high fat diet. Haven't started exercising again yet and still losing. Though watch it all come back tomorrow.

Great news kylas. I love meatloaf muffins.

I finished my day good. I did have some fruit snacks but overall length it was good. Hoping tomorrow is also good! I'm pretty sure I have low carb flu as I am not feeling well and my heads killing me.

Low carb flu? Is that a real thing? Because I've been in a weird mood. I feel run down and like I want to lay down but it's different from my usual exhausted feeling. Kind of a bit foggy.

I'd be happy to post the recipe of you like? 115 calories each, 2 grams of fat. Though I don't know what else lol. That's all it says for the nutritional content. When I'm doing low carb I don't really look at calories. I'll glance and make sure I'm not eating 800 in one sitting, but I find even if it's higher in calories as long as it's low carb and higher fat then it doesn't go right to the hips. Or butt. Or thighs. Or arms. Haha
