    Mealtimes are a time not just to get full, but to reconnect with the people you live with and to provide or receive emotional sustenance as well. If you think of it in those terms, you actually are accomplishing something very valuable by taking time for enjoying an attractive and healthy meal together with the people who matter most to you (TK). You both come away with a little bit more margin left in your life physically, emotionally and energy wise. Not only that, but you actually have saved yourself time by taking time to refuel. You will be a lot more productive in everything that you do, even if it takes a little while for your body to become accustomed to the routine.

    You can always try going gluten and sugar free.

    Idk Fidelia, something seems to get lost in translation when you are trying to interact with someone who has food spilling out of their mouth or has to pause for thirty seconds between thoughts.

    Update,

    Breakfast: Coffee
    Lunch: same snack pack
    Snack: yogurt
    Dinner: tortilla chips and pepper jack

    I am sore as hell. Earlier I found myself using my hands to aid my crossing legs.

    My skin looks healthier. More youthful, and I think I can see cheek bones popping through again.

    I have lost some of the puffiness, but my body looks crazy. Probably shaping itself.

    I endured a boost in energy, but migraines, some flushed sweatiness. Like either hyper vigilant or overly tired. Probably my metabolism adjusting.

    I weighed in at 145.5 today.

    I did my sit ups, though my tail bone is getting sore, I have decided I am going to do crunches, with lunges, on the weekends.

    I walked with TK and my nephew, who rode bikes to "pace" me.

    I don't feel like typing a lot....


    And that was the update.

    Agreed. A change in diet is not a quick fix, it should be thought of as a permanent thing. Any 'diet' that you go on should be designed as if you are prepared to follow it for the rest of your life.

    That's pretty much the high carb diet.

    Yeah I realized that....

    Okay, today I walked, ate the same thing I eat every day, weighed in at 144.5.

    I have noticed though, that I am looking forward to or craving my meals. Before, I used to eat a top ramen at night, and wouldn't think twice about food.

    Now, I am like, Oh god food time!

    The other thing I noticed is that my coffee is hitting me a lot harder than it used to...making me shaky. I also noticed that I get INCREDIBLY cranky around 1pm.

    Like hyper sensitive to everything around me.

    The other thing I noticed, is that I keep waking up at 5am. An hour earlier, and not able to get back to sleep.

    It is like I have a bunch of energy, but I am not sure it is good energy, because it is cranky, hyper-vigilant, clumsy, less focused, etc.

    Idk, is this normal?

    Back off on the coffee, now that your system is getting real food.

    Good idea, I will cut down the amount of added shots per day.

    Substitute a boiled egg for the yogurt. Eat a piece of cheese in the morning. At 1 pm, have a handful of nuts. Put some protein in there and it will smooth things out.

    Well I tried, at least a little bit.

    Today wasn't so great diet wise. So far I had one of those hummus plates from Starbucks, and coffee. I just got busy. I am not at home, but I will do my sit ups when I get there. I didn't walk. Didn't weigh myself.

    Sigh

    At least the hummus plate had some chicken in it!

    Woo hoo.
