    [–] Week Two - What's your master plan and goals for this week? 😁 narfnarfnarf77 4 points ago in Team_Rhinoceros

    I've really struggled to get my head in the game over this last week, so I have three things I'ma do differently this week:

    1. Accurately logging - not just stopping when I get to maintenance level, so I feel less guilty. I let my 45 day streak on MFP die yesterday, because I hadn't really been doing that, and I wanted a fresh start.

    2. I'm the trying to achieve a mental shift - I don't need to rebel by eating loads of junk food. It makes me feel like crap, I don't really enjoy it that much, and nobody else really cares what I eat. I'm doing this for me, because I want to do it, so I really want it to get back on track. On the flip side, and completely related - whenever I think thoughts along the lines of 'time to step this up, I've got a big number to lose!', I panic and binge eat, so I'm just gonna chill, and eat my planned meals, and try to not catastrophise things.

    3. Finally, I'm chucking away the last bits of flour and sugar in the house, so I can't make microwave cakes on a whim, and I'm deleting the takeaway apps from my phone!

    Time for me to step things up! 🦏🦏🦏

    [–] Tantrum Tuesday - The Day to Rant! narfnarfnarf77 4 points ago in Team_Rhinoceros

    PREACH!!

    Counting calories has such a bad reputation, it's almost as if the companies who make loads of money out of making dieting seem more complicated don't want us to consider it!

    [–] Good day? Share! narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in Team_Rhinoceros

    Yeah, I've started making our lunches veggie and it's amazing how low calorie they are! And I feel less worried about giving us food poisoning when Friday rocks around. Currently loving the Hairy Dieters meatless meatballs recipe 😊🎉

    [–] Good day? Share! narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in Team_Rhinoceros

    I had a good day! I worked late, and ate some chocolate cake that was lying about, but I skipped dinner (without really feeling hungry at all!) and stayed under my calorie limit. Not the healthiest day ever, but I avoided the trap of thinking "Fuck it, I've fucked up, might as well go all fucking in!", as I have done previously 😊

    [–] Trying to figure out how to lose fat healthily and get out of the rut I'm in. TW: Eating Disorders narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    Hey, my story is very similar to yours, it's crazy how effed up our thoughts on food can get.

    What's been working for me is working out my TDEE, and taking it really slow and steady - you don't have to be extreme. I'm eating ~1500kcal a day, and the weight is coming off at a good pace - and I'm not starving myself into binging. CICO works, and I've found the numbers of calorie counting a safe place, where emotions and self-hatred aren't all that relevant.

    You're gonna need to eat for the rest of your life, you've got plenty of time to lose weight, so cut yourself some slack 😊 If you love candy, then eat it, but maybe only have a little bit, or only once a week. Fat-acceptance and self-acceptance aren't the same thing, you can want to lose weight, while also liking yourself.

    You got this! ✨

    Yeah, but I've just double checked and the MY stands for 'monitor your' - maybe try searching for the whole term like that?

    Ooh, the idea of photos with your measurements is fab!

    Ooh, some more great apps! It's amazing how many there are! ✨

    [–] Let's talk about tech, baby narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    Yeah, it really helps me kick my ass when I'm slacking - so easy to convince yourself that you're working hard, when in reality I'm just mincing along 😊

    [–] Feeling gross after a week of maintenance. Advice? narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    I knoooow! I ate a whole load of crap yesterday, and am still feeling a bit gross today, but we'll make it through this adversity! 😊

    [–] i am full but i want to eat so badly narfnarfnarf77 0 points ago in loseit

    You need to watch this video, because you'll learn that it's just your genes screwing with you 😺

    Woohoo! Well done! 🎉✨👏🏻

    I also started very slow, but would tell myself that as long as I'm out of breath, I'm sweating, and I'm working hard, it counts - and it's a victory!

    [–] As a teenage girl, will I always hate my body or can I lose weight and be satisfied with it. narfnarfnarf77 8 points ago in loseit

    My advice would be to remember that self-acceptance and fat-acceptance are not the same thing - you are not your body, your body carries you about and does awesome stuff. Also, nobody cares about what you look like as much as you do, so don't sweat it 😀

    [–] Feeling stuck and struggling. narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    This video really helped me!

    I would guess you don't have a carb addiction, you're just genetically programmed to find and enjoy the most energy-dense food - just like the rest of us 😊

    Once you recognise it's just your genes being silly, I find it's easier to avoid the pasta. Also, if you load up on veggies and lean meat, with some tasty spice mix, you shouldn't feel too hungry!

    [–] Does anyone over-eat because they are scared of starving? narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    I had an eating disorder as a teenager, and now occasionally find myself eating as if I'm about to starve myself for a decade again. It sucks.

    Maybe now you've recognised what you're doing, you can be quite conscious of it when you're overeating, and decide not to? I've found this has helped me

    [–] Feeling gross after a week of maintenance. Advice? narfnarfnarf77 8 points ago in loseit

    My advice would be to just chill the eff out 😊

    You ate a lot, you feel gross, but it's not a permanent state. Give it a day or so and you'll be fine! You have to eat for the rest of your life, and a week of indulgence does not diminish that, so don't panic. I know I'm sounding glib, but I wish someone had said this to me years ago

    You got this, lovely!
