    Bluegirls journey to ar*e island

    Hi all, just been reading through all your diaries, and writing one seems like such a fantastic idea. Threefold I guess, motivation for me, motivation for you and to help me concentrate on the job in hand rather than thinking about what I can't have.

    I'm on day 2 of sole source, 5 ft 10 so having 4 products a day. I'm thinking about food lots at the moment, and wondering how many different types of hunger there are. So far I think I've had 3. Head, mouth and belly and to be honest the head hunger fels the worst.

    So if I can work through the head hunger then I'll be ok? Has anyone else had that? I'm guessing it's about feeling deprived, or even just getting used to a different way of eating. A new way forward.

    Thanks for readings and keeping me company - K xx

    i think it's normal to get food obsessions, and to feel deprived when you think of (or see / smell) things you can't have. in my first week i started a little notebook to write down all the things i wanted to eat, so i knew i could have them all when i was at goal. three months later that notebook has one thing written in it. dim sum. it just stopped being so important after a while. like food was behind glass or laminated or something. just not really for me. it does get better.

    Thank you, last night I made my partner let me smell his food -pizza but it got a little out of hand when I asked to smell his nuts - salted pea nuts!

    Today I feel better, more positive, but the challenge of being away from home for the week working is looming. I've more tetra packs in my case than clothes - how we change in such a short time eh?

    when posting click 'go advanced' and then use 'manage attachments'.

    But pink is good. ketostix, however, are of limited use. if you don't feel as hungry as you should, and/or it's past the first week and you've stuck to plan, then you will be in ketosis. the sticks vary in sensitivity, eve within a single batch, can spoil if they're not kept perfectly, and results vary from one person to another, and at different times of day.

    as a very rough rule, the darker it goes, the higher concentration of ketones in your blood. you want some to bde present, but more doesn't = greater weightloss. the amount you drink and how long since you last had a wee will affect concentration anyway.

    Thanks all

    Day 4 was tough. Away from home, busy day at work and starving by 12. I say starving but I'm not sure i actually mean that. There were chocolates, mince pies and hot buttered toast around me, not to mention the smell of sweet latte from the girl next to me. What I think I was feeling was sorry for myself, until of course the angel on my shoulder gave the devil on my other a good talking to.

    Sure it would have been good to indulge, but how bad would I feel now? How much would I have let myself down? How long would the gratification of food lasted until I wanted more and more?

    I don't want to sound like I've an eating disorder, but I can eat, I can get out of control, I can binge terribly and suddenly, with food out of bounds that feeling seems less. I guess it's a bit like giving up smoking, you have to do cold turkey, and maybe that's why this diet will work for me


    I'd be really interested in anyone else feels/ felt like this

    My binging is out of control too, I believe it is an eating disorder but it isn't recognised by the health professionals! If you made your self sick afterwards you would get put in an eating clinic surrounded by professionals to support you but because we don't, us chunks are just left to our own devices, labelled obese and have to pay for the pleasure of r

    Binge Eating Disorder is an eating disorder. Binge eating disorder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But you're right in that its recognition and treatment pales in comparison to anorexia and bulimia. I suffered very badly from it seven years ago, and have been fighting the hangover behaviours from it ever since. To whit - i had to lie on my medical form for CD as they won't take anyone with an eating disorder. Now, when you think about it, many many long-term obese people have these behaviours: compulsions / addictions... disordered eating. And i'd say SS particularly appeals to people in that mindset - who are attracted by the complete break from food. I'd say there's a hell of a lot of Binge Eating Disorder sufferers on Cambridge - they just haven't been diagnosed.

    But you're right in that its recognition and treatment pales in comparison to anorexia and bulimia. I suffered very badly from it seven years ago, and have been fighting the hangover behaviours from it ever since. To whit - i had to lie on my medical form for CD as they won't take anyone with an eating disorder. Now, when you think about it, many many long-term obese people have these behaviours: compulsions / addictions... disordered eating. And i'd say SS particularly appeals to people in that mindset - who are attracted by the complete break from food. I'd say there's a hell of a lot of Binge Eating Disorder sufferers on Cambridge - they just haven't been diagnosed.
    Exactly! Obesity is a bigger problem than anorexia yet the only treatment they offer are pills that make you sh it yourself in tesco ( yes im speaking from experience lol)

    Only downside is im smoking like a chimney at the min

    Was feelig a bit naff after watching cake boss ( yeh I know I do t know why I did it) but the dogs are snoring on my knee ad looking v cute so that's cheered me up!

    Found a fab saying on tinternet.....

    Don't reward your self with food, you are not a dog

    Hahaha!
