Hi everyone!

Havent been around for a bit now. Travelling and taking care of family emergencies have taken a toll on me. It's almost 2 months now since I exercised well, save for some walks I had with a B...and my food intake in Feb & March (till date) has been anything but compliant. I feel unwell, disjointed, bloated and my digestive problems are back once again. My skin, which was always pretty good, now has severe breakouts along the jawline...and I've lost quite a bit of hair too. The hair looks limp despite changing shampoos and getting rid of build-up etc.,

But I know that it's bcoz of a non-O living. Today is my first day back home..and although I know what to do, suddenly everything looks overwhelming and I'm disappointed in myself for coming to this stage. I've segmented my "issues" into small packages...but it still feels terrible.

I dont know whether the suppliments I'm taking are causing me any problems. I've posted a message under Drako2300's "How many Suppliments do you take" thread.

I need moral boosting and a place to vent! Any help would be greatly appreciated ...

Thank you!

Welcome back-
You know the way back on track
Take 1 steph at the time.

I think the first time one falls of BTD it is always a bit overwhelped by HOW bad it feel....
I know you have been especially low on protein on your trip (? )
-get that back in your diet
- put yourself first for a while - foodvise.
Go for as many beneficials as you can in every food group
- and youŽll be much better in no time

Perhaps stick to only beneficial food items with an emphasis on protein, dark leafy greens, vegetables.

Limit neutral foods for the first week as beneficial foods act as medicine for your body.

Drink plenty of filtered water with a pinch of gray sea salt to encourage toxins to be released from your cells and to be flushed out of your system.

Incorporate the recommended exercise regime for your blood type as suggested for exercise option and duration.

In addition to the above suggestions ... lots of prayer and positive thinking.  Surround yourself with those who give you the greatest support.  Good luck!

P.S.  And ... anything worth having requires some work and discipline.  Think about how you want to feel and it will help you get there.

I think any sea salt will do the trick, unless I missed out on some info.  
I was of the understanding that the salt helped get the water into our cells. Didnt know about the other side of the coin.  Guess what goes in, must come out?

Thanks all! I know I'll be back on track soon. I got myself a packet of organic sea salt. We dont normally use the refined salt many supermarkets sell...instead we use the coarse kind of salt. Recently, when I was helping a relative of ours cook, I noticed that they were using the very fine refined salt and God! the amount they had to use compared to something like 6 times more than what I use with the coarse salt

I'm reserving the organic salt for my lemon-salt water regime.

This is a lifetime journey and decidedly non-linear.  It is often one step forward, two steps backwards for me.  Right now, I'm doing well, but I went through a long, long period recently of not doing well.  All we can do is pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and proceed on from where we are.  It helps me to keep foremost in my mind that it is all about taking good care of myself and making healthful choices.  I threw out my scale recently and am really keeping it solely about trying to be as healthy as I can be.

Hang in there and we are here for you whenever you need a place to vent, share, ask a question, or just be among BTD buds.

Yesterday I headed to the post office to drop  off some letters and the little voice inside wanted to get something sweet and I didn't feel good either.  So I consoled myself that I would get a soy hot chocolate (not so bad right!)  umm that's hughly debatable coming from a coffee shop and not made at home!  At any rate, another voice was really talking saying.. "hey you don't feel good just go home and go to bed."  And the other voice was like... "today is boring and blah!  come on get a goodie, it will make you happy."  And the other voice said... "you know, you will feel worse and you will just get completely off your track, and besides you had a nice delicious lunch and you will have a great dinner and be able to eat more healthy things if you don't get this crappy snack."  

This banter back and forth is a major milestone for me.  Normally I just fall into going for the junk, you know that old thing... 'just a little,' 'just one bite,' etc., etc. And no other voice of goodness ever comes in to help me.

So progress comes in the weirdest ways.  The part of me that wants to feel good and take care of myself is starting to speak up.  Which is amazing.  I feel that is some deep healing going on in my pyche.

Anyway I don't know if that will help but I know that my addiction plays games with my  mind and in the past 90% of the time, the addiction has won.  But yesterday, the healthy part of me won.

I had a eating therapist once tell me "You have to accept life on life's terms."  Yesterday was an unhappy blah day and I had to just accept it and not try to make it better by eating.  It was tough but today I'm so happy that I did.

I've been doing alot more of that lately.  This life on life's terms... well it means some tough stuff - not eating when you are lonely, bored, tired, angry, afraid, pissed off, not eating for a reward, because you are happy, sad, etc., etc.  Not overeating or eating the wrong stuff, cause it's a family potluck or whatever.  

I pin it down to 'responsiblity to self.'  Caring about myself.  Loving the life I will lead when I don't eat crappy or overeat.  Because when I do overeat or eat the wrong stuff, I suffer, have to spend days recouperating and those days are stolen from me.  I spend all that time recouping and feeling sh*tty and struggling to get back on track, when I could be living!

Great posts and great encouragement, thanks all!

My problem is not temptation. It's eating what is available, or starving. In the recent 2 months of not being able to be fully compliant, I never once had any urge for wheat or sweet stuff. There's nothing you can do when you spend a lot of time travelling from one point to another and taking care of folks who are a little more needy than yourself. When I'm on my own I take care of myself well. I will survive this set back and come back to feeling healthy. At least I notice I feel unwell instead waiting for another 15 years!!!

Life always throws things at us that disrupt our normal routines.  You do the best you can and then move on.  Today I have to be gone all day.  I am up an extra hour early so I can prepare food to take with me.  I have to shop for our groceries today as well.  I have to bring a cooler to carry them in so they don't go bad since I won't be home until late.

Possibly you could prepare a cooler full of compliant foods and snacks to take with  you when you have to be out so much.

Just a suggestion.  Sometimes the rebellious one inside us looks for any excuse not to be on track.  I'm not saying that is you, I'm saying that is me and alot of others I personally know.  

Blessings on your journey.

Such a great idea if you're going to be about town, unfortunately for AC, she has been more like out of the country for a while...............     Two dif trips in a kinda short period of time. Hardly time to recoop from one before off on another it seemed. Whew.............exhausting!!

funkymuse, this is exactly what I have been dealing with....I must be determined to stick to the stuff and not feed that rebellious one inside me.  That's when things get mighty worse.  Truly it is worth the effort to discipline myself to be a better person all around.  Thank you for sharing.

I apologize for the misnomer.  When I state gray sea salt salt, I am referring to any type of high quality sea salt, such as, but not limited to: Si, Muramoto, Celtic, Himalayan, et al.  

A good quality sea salt should have its minerals intact and has not been highly refined.
