  1. 22May

    Another good day yesterday so getting back on track. Just thinking about when I will start making progress though, but will try to banish those thoughts.
    Next I have to tackle / come to terms with doing the right thing for me rather than bowing to social pressure , especially when people are ‘ doing things to please’/ trying to be helpful/ done out of love etc as I find these situations the most difficult. My upbringing was most definitely not about thinking of one’s own needs. They were ...

  2. The French Lieutenant's Woman

    After some time - years - of a paralysed combination of insight and the inability to act on it, I seem to be going along quite well. I am now in the 'action phase' and have stopped contemplating making changes and am chugging along with three meals a day.

    On a few occasions I have opened the fridge door and stared into it. A wistful longing stirs in me like the French Lieutenants woman at Lyme Regis! Just a fatter older version with no French Lieutenant. I stare for a while - not ...

  3. Re-set day 1

    Here we go then, day 1. Starting weight, 12 stone 6lbs 6oz. For the full Bridget Jones effect I will disclose 4 glasses of wine last night (only 2 of which were chardonnay!) but don't expect this to be repeated as it is now off the menu. My only non-phase 2 item I will be consuming is caffeinated coffee, which I plan to keep drinking until July.

    Off to a good start with 4 rashers of bacon for breakfast. Lunch currently a bit of an unknown but I'm never at risk of making P3 choices ...

  4. Dr Verner Wheelock's scary statistics

    A very phase 3 weekend has got me itching to do a THD hard re-set, but I’ve been thwarted by a ludicrous situation over some Belgian chocolates and a planned drink with an old friend, meaning I will not be good to go with said re-set until Wednesday. I always find major phase 3 diversions leave me longing to get back on track, but what has got me especially fired up this time is Dr Verner Wheelock’s excellent book Healthy Eating: The Big Mistake. Honestly it contains very little I haven’t read ...

  5. Pond Life

    So...earlier this week, I seem to have evacuated a small garden pond complete with pond life from my body. I felt exhausted and my mind began racing about all the terrible things that might be going on in my body. I have managed to stay completely on plan but alternate between complete obsession with my bowels to rumination about various bodily pains. I read about 'candida die-off' and my symptoms seems to fit. I seem to have 'firmed up' as the week has progressed and things are back ...
