Phase 3 and major slip up!!

  1. freebeanie

    The last 2 days of VLCD after my shot were fine, I lost another lb bringing me to 122.4 which was good. Then phase 3 started, I introduced yoghurt and gained like 0.2 lbs each day... not sure what to do about that really. Also had a bit more milk and organic, pure peanut butter (no oils/sugar) and different fruits/veggies (only those on the phase 3 list). I must admit I have not exercised at all this week due to a heavy work schedule, which really sucks and I need to rectify it immediately. Also I probably haven't drank enough water or tea, been having coffees instead. What else? Oh yeah, still haven't actually been hungry... and after I have lunch I feel really full. But then in the evening after I eat dinner I just crave something sweet, so been having an extra piece of fruit. Sounds fairly harmless but I'm eating when I'm not hungry, which is a habit I definitely want to leave behind.

    Now to the slip up bit... last night I binged I started out just having some peanut butter, but then I went out and bought 2 chocolate bars, 500ml ice cream tub and also had some raisins and cereal. I feel AWFUL. Today I was up 1.5lbs. I don't know why I did it really, I had a very successful day at work so maybe I felt like celebrating? I don't know. But it was also weird... I kind of had to force myself to eat it. And it was DISGUSTING. It all tasted way too sweet, very very sickly. Before I loved this stuff, now it made me shudder. So I really don't know why I forced it down. The only theory I have is that I have very low self-esteem, so because I'd be congratulated and stuff at work I felt too good, so subconsciously I did something to feel bad again? Either that or I'm just a greedy loser. It was very hard to sleep last night, I was actually in pain and felt so so sick.

    But anyway... it's hard to know what to do now. Steak day? Or just continue with my phase 3 plan? I am definitely NOT hungry right now and I am going to go to the gym soon. All I know is that I am not going to let 1 slip up ruin this journey for me, I'm sure I'm not the first person to 'cheat' or whatever. Just uncertain what to do for the best. The only good to come out of this is that I really think I'm 'cured' of my previous obsession with sugar... it really and truly is DISGUSTING!!

    Any advice welcome!

    have you read this great blog post - critical helpful hint here "stockpile of L-Glutamine, breaking open a 500 mg capsule under my tongue to dissolve, knowing that it would change my brain neurotransmitters so that I would feel satisfied and happy again. Ahhhh, what welcome relief!"
