You did a great job buddy! I think I would've came back 10lbs heavier from a Vaca LOL
Thank you all for the congrats 😀 This morning I'm up though. Woke up around 1am with such a headache. Sunday I had a terrible migraine and I didn't want that to happen again. So I took meds and drank an electrolyte drink and full cup of water. So I'm sure it's just water. Didn't sleep well I'm sure doesn't help either. I got up feeling nauseated and dizzy. Not so much now. So on with the day. Have a great day all

Hi ladies Hope you feel good today Susan. I get migraine-like headaches. There is a meditation that helps with pain. I took a pain reliever, laid down in excruciating pain. I woke up 2 hours later fine. The pain can go on for days, it was completely gone. www.Meditainment.com

Thank you Nawchem I'm gonna check it out. I used to get migraines 3+times a week. Last year in May I got the daith piercings done that are supposed to help with migraines. I've now had like 4 migraines since then so that's a big improvement! But when I do get them they still hurt like hell LOL

I stuck more to the meatballs. Didn't drink nearly enough water either. So I'm up again 😕 I need to get it together. I feel like I've wasted so many days when I could've been maintaining or losing. So today I planned my meal, filled my gallon of water and determined to get it right today! No excuses!!!! Having my bpc now 😁

I can only speak my experience, I was having a real hard time getting past a certain weight and giving myself more leeway with Lc helped me stick to it.

Having a really difficult time with new dr. Realized I'm not going to get a good result with a dumbbell-like her. I'm going counseling to deal with the frustration with these drs. Just going to study and worry about it after the test.

Struggling, son is moving out for the first time, friend and her husband are visiting the province and I have to go see them, her husband is dying (weeks/months) and this will most likely be the last time I see him and this brings up memories of how fast my husband died, and I have been binge eating again. I so want to feel the mood boast and energy of keto again. Today is day one, starting fresh again, wish me luck, please.

Scotia I'm sorry about your husband. Is there any kind of counselor you could talk to. I went first time on Monday, just about my physical pain, it was so nice to have someone just listen.

Food is that double-edged sword, it makes you feel better at first and than it stabs you in the back.

I've felt dieter's fatigue and think am I going to be writing down everything I eat for the rest of my life? It's been 4 months already.

I stayed the same, wondering if it's the pain relievers I'm taking, the weight loss stopped as soon as I started taking them.

Your words are so true. You are so right, food is a doubled edged sword, one needs to eat to live so it is socially acceptable to eat and so many of the things that are fast are not good for ones mind and body. I have started to reach out for some counseling, I waiver between feeling totally in control of my life and happy to the rug being pulled out from under me when I least expect it. I was doing so well, I was happy, moving forward then I had an incident with someone and a few other memories popped up that I have not dealt with, and may never be able to let go of completely. Guess it is learning to live with what you can not change and changing what you can. I know diet and sleep are key for me, I just want to feel good again, I know I can, so I will try, try again. Thank you so very much.
