I have a hard time believing the body "needs" things that are nothing but empty shit. Like sugar, empty carbs. Etc. That is just the excuse we use to eat crap. It's like when people say "the body will tell you what it needs" No, it will tell you what it wants. It's called carving. It doesn't mean anything.

In response to a confession. me too. i'm sick of diet trends in general (that aren't medically necessary). none of them are new. they just get recycled every 10 years or so, sometimes tweaked a little, and called a different name. I lost 50 lbs and have kept it off for over 10 years eating the same regular foods i always eat (including *gasp* breads, pasta, and sugar). i just eat smaller portions of them.

I'm sort of sick of all the no-sugar stuff. I'm sure that in a few years there will be new research saying that it's fine again. Of course it's going to fire up more pleasure neurons than cocaine does in your brain when you eat it--your brain NEEDS sugar to run and it'll prefer that to cocaine any day. I do think we probably shouldn't have it in so many savory foods, but I think that if you eat mostly unprocessed foods, you don't need to watch your sugar like a hawk.

In response to a confession. I’m 5’3, so do not want to lose much. I really wanted to just feel healthier overall, stop sugars cravings, and emotional eating. I would love to tone up and add weight training.

I had my second Achilles' tendon repair surgery yesterday (first one wa two months ago). Obviously, I haven't been exercising. But I'm a diabetic and I've been eating low-carb. When I got weighed in pre-op I was shocked! I've lost 12 1/2 pounds since August 3rd! That started my day off right!

In response to a confession. How much weight do you plan on losing? I'd kill to be back at 123 lbs.

In response to a confession. I know it's my diet since I haven't exercised in almost 2 weeks. But I only started cutting out refined sugars and very limited carb intake since last Sunday. I really wish I weighed myself then because 2.5 lbs seems crazy for just one week of overhauling diet. But then again I was eating a ton of sugar and fast food before this.

I logged onto facebook to write a long note about how I'm disappointed in myself because I'm not running my usual annual 1/2 marathon tomorrow. I've had too much going on lately to train, so to be safe I'm only doing the 10k. Which makes me feel like I have passed my prime. But before I can post, I see is a post from a friend saying how awesome she feels because she is going to do the 10k, and how far it is but she knows she can tough it out, and how this proves she isn't too old for anything. And her friend responds that she is also doing the 10k for the first time, and how hard it is but they are proving that 30 isn't over the hill. I really needed those reminders that what I'm doing is still pretty kickass. I feel a lot better now. And since people nearly 2 decades younger than me are feeling a bit old, I guess I'm in good company!
