1) Daily meditation session on the cushion
2) Eating before noon.

Observation:

Pulled off the "trick" yesterday of EBN - can't claim it thow. I don't know what shape I'll be in this evening after exercising all day - we'll see. On thing that was helpful yesterday early evening was to say to myself, "you can have whatever and as much as you want... tomorrow" - I wasn't very hungry, it's just that the "habit of eating" at a certain time and under certain conditions seem strong in me. Change habits.

Sat on the cushion a few sessions yesterday too.

Pertty good for a Saturday

Seeing results gives me the incentive to stay the course. Learning to be patient and not give in.

Maybe you had no weight loss, but you very well may have had some fat loss. My first 3 months I could not reliably weigh myself on the scale at home. I was too heavy. Once I'd lost enough and started weighing daily at home I as obsessed and stressed about the scale as everybody else. I had such a long way to go and I knew it was going to take a long time. It didn't take too much time before I started to see a pattern in my weight loss. I'd plateau for weeks (give or take a few pounds) and then have a 2 or 3 day whose. One time I went 5 weeks without a loss which was followed up by a 10 pound drop in 3 days. You can't lose 10 pounds of fat in 3 days. I'd been losing fat all along and it was being replaced by water as a place-holder. When I finally convinced my body that I was not going to fill up those fat cells again it flushed some water and closed those puppies down. Sometimes I'd plateau for only a week and drop a pound or two. More often than not it was 2 to 3 weeks at the same number followed by a 4 or 5 pound drop. Eventually I learned to chill out about the scale number each day. I learned to just wait it out.

If you really think about it, not gaining is a scale victory. What will throwing in the towel accomplish? Nothing good, I can assure you. You do your part and eat right. Eventually the scale will yield.

thud I've actually been doing meditation too, I sleep better and I have the feeling everythings going to be ok.

I have 2 killer injuries, went to the dr and did not do anything they suggested including the page with exercises. I'm not one bit better following my plan. So I will spend 20 min doing exercises and using the antiinflammatory cream.

Default Day 33 of 90

The mission: Deep ketogenic eating everyday
The rules: Eat less than 20 net carbs per day and less than 15 net carbs at any one meal.
Other parameters: I will give myself up to 5 passes/exceptions throughout the 90 day period, but they cannot be used on consecutive days. These are not free-for-all days, but an allowance to take into account that perfection is not required.

Passes used: 2

Yesterday: 18 net carbs

2) Eating before noon.

Observation:

wasn't able to follow thru with no EBN last two days - I seem to be having a mental block, real physical hunger or just a phobia about eating after exercise I'm not sure if I'm listening to my head or my body's needs - more work to be done, more observation and practice tries.

ps welcome nawchem - did see you till I scrolled back a bit.
