Thread: Any other 'Weight Loss Apocalypse Protocol' followers out there??

  1. #253
    I weigh every day too but the deal is if the number affects my self worth, I ditch it! The scale isn't the issue, it's the power we allow it to hold over us.

    I nearly ditched the scale while I went thru a stall. I had to travel and couldnt weigh for a few days and that seemed to fix the mindset for me. I would probably like to weigh during P3 although she says to let hunger be a guide. It will be trial and error I suppose.

    I agree, I can't ditch the scale yet either, I'm just too scared. This morning I didn't drop at all but I know I only ate with hunger yesterday so I was ok with it, plus my pants are fitting better!

    I feel like I need the scale until I can trust the hunger, trust myself to decifer hunger, that is where I struggle, not with the program but trusting myself to know what actual hunger is and when to stop eating. I need some sort of feedback to know if I'm doing it right.

    Since November I have worked really hard on my food issues. This book brought to light those few remaining issues I need to work on. Also, I found her hypothesis on leptin and HCG very informative. I'm on my last load day of R2.5 (feel like I'm going to throw up!) and I'm really excited this time. Before it was excitement but mostly a lot of we'll see/my tongue is bored. LOL!

    ETA: I'm loving her thoughts on not getting on the scale or limiting to once a week. I do T-Tapp and this is a big suggestion of Teresa's.

    Sorry for my late response. I'm on R1VLCD23... and still craving everything. My head is hungry. This is going to be a long road of healing emotionally for me. I follow Robin on Youtube and Facebook and I'm half way through her book!

    Hi.
    I have come across this Robin and WLA on various threads on this forum.
    I am really interested in it.
    I have always struggled with emotional eating and all or nothing thinking when it comes to eating. Hcg and leptin reset didn't seem to fix it. I was hoping they would.
    Niether did therapy, weekly visits to the nutritionsit, OA, etc.
    I know that I do it. I attempt to check myself and stop myself. I sometimes can. Other times the pull just seems so strong.
    I try and eat only when I am hungry. My full button doesn't kick in for an hour or longer. So I have to try and stop myself when I feel that I have eaten an adequate amount and wait and sit in hunger for a long time. I actually get hungrier after I eat. Does Robin address how to stop eating when you still feel hungry, but know intellectually you have eaten enough.
    It is weird because on hcg my cravings mostly go away and I dont have that emotional urge to eat, but I am hungry.

    I don't have the book. I am trying to watch the videos. I can relate to a lot of what she says about the mentality of dieting.

    I have experience with this phenomenon. I will often feel a slight fullness in my stomach, but my mouth is still tingling for more food. I have a few strategies to address it.

    1. Eat more carbs in my meal. MANY MANY TIMES I will have this sensation when I try to eat meals that are too low-glycemic. If I include starches at my meals, like a side of potatoes or rice, a slice of toast with my eggs and bacon at breakfast, or a piece of fruit, the feeling is less likely to arise.
    2. Eat a small amount of something sweet at the end of the meal. Often a bite or two of chocolate will put the cap on my appetite and set me for hours.
    3. Chew a piece of gum. The sweet taste helps the sensation of satiety catch up all the way from my stomach to my mouth.
    4. Brush my teeth. It has a very similar effect to the gum: the combination of minty and sweet helps my appetite shut down. In fact, I only use the gum when I'm not at home to brush my teeth.

    These are the things that work for me. Once I can make that mouth tingle go away, I'm not interested in food whatsoever for 4-6 hours, or even more.
    Started my HCG journey on March 16, 2011

    Just for the record, no part of this journey is for the weak.

    I just bought the book and am looking forward to diving in.

    It's funny how different everyone is regarding triggers. I'm right there with you on toothbrushing and gum -- it staves off my appetite (but I will also "binge chew" and the sugar alchohols wreak havoc w/ my tummy, so I try to avoid gum.) The carbs and/or sweets however have the opposite effect on me. If I have starches or a sweet, that hollow feeling turns on and all I want to do is eat.
