Reaching for balance . .

"Steak Day down 2.4 lbs. Still over LIW but considering how bad I had let it slide I am ok with it coming back down slowly.

It feels like I am in training for how to live the rest of my life. I am taking things easy, going easy on myself and trying to keep the stress levels low. I am working on my meals, trying to keep the protein and fat content high, carbs low and getting the hated veggies in. I will try to keep my meals balanced and eventually figure out what is best so that I have a clear plan for the future.

I need to account for my actions and the way that I react to stressful and emotional situations. I refuse to rely on hcg to always be there for me. I am grateful that it got me moving in the right direction and along the way I am learning how to cope. It is as simple as that. I have poor coping skills in stressful situations. I seem to have it together on the outside and seem grounded but I know the truth, inside I am a mess, and that needs to be fixed. Life probably will never be perfect but we all have to figure out how to deal with out lives in a positive way. I am still learning and now that the fog and cobwebs are clearing out of my head . . . I see that I am going to get there . . . "

    Hey toots! Good for you...steak day results were good! I am really with you on eating more balanced ...I want to practice what I preach. So I am making a real focused effort to add more veggies into my daily eating as well.

    There are so very many of us doing correction days a few days a week and I think we forget about the nutrition our bodies need. So good for you for taking control!

    FYI, I took the book Diet Rehab (i mentioned it the other day) on cd out of the library. I didn't realize there was a PDF file of 94 pages included. I think it's almost the whole book...I printed it off. Hehehe...hope the literary police don't come to my door! Have a peaceful night!

    Hi you two . . . Happy to be back blogging.

    Toots .. . lol . . . practing what we preach is not an easy thing is it? Knowing, saying, and doing the right thing are not always connected but a continuous and daily effort.

    I think that correction days are going to become a part of my life and I am happy that there are ways to correct. Someone mentioned something about the Dukkan Diet where there is one correction day per week . . . I briefly looked at it and the concept seems to be closely paralled to the hcg plan a bit and I found that interesting.

    Finally finished reading Weight Loss Apocalypse and I will be looking over the ideas behind the Dukkan Diet just to see the relationship with the correction days. I do not look forward to anymore reading, I feel overloaded it information sometimes.
