  • PSA to everyone, but especially us dieters, to ALWAYS eat well, drink lots and rest up after giving blood.

    I normally do but today had a hundred things to do, one of which was go to the Apple store to get my phone fixed... just as I was being taken from the queue to my appointment I started to feel terrible, I couldn’t even really understand what the dude was saying to me so I had to tell him I thought I might faint. He took me to the side and got me a stool (please don’t sit in a stool when you’re feeling faint) then went to get my genius person for my appointment. Next thing I know I’m opening my eyes on the floor, no memory of getting there, with a bunch of Apple people coming towards me 😳. I had fainted and toppled sideways onto the floor head first 😩.

    So yeh, please do give blood but remember to eat and drink substantially beforehand and be extra cautious afterwards!

similar thing happened to me but while giving a blood . I fainted while giving my blood so I was safe on the bed. It was spontaneous act while shopping. Since I did not eat before I came there it was not such a good idea.

LinLin

Yikes! I've nearly fainted a few times after giving blood. Now I try to be really careful and rather eat/drink too much than too little.

There was a discussion about feeling guilty about "off" days in one of my Facebook groups (specifically, not having time to exercise, but works for an "off" eating day, too).

I've been on and off the weight loss wagon for years (back on it now).
I've found that when I quit and give up, the number one reason why is beating myself up about not being perfect, feeling like I'm failing a test or something. I start to feel like - if I'm never gonna be perfect, then why bother trying anything at all? Of course, that just leads to gaining the weight back, starting the cycle all over again, etc.

So, I do really try to be kind to myself about "off" days, tell myself I'll get back to it when I can. It just makes things 10x harder when I'm not.

You should screen shot your comment and save it. Writing down past behavior shows me that you are analyzing your behavior and staying aware of what they are. As i was reading your post I saw me in them. We all have these setbacks BUT look at you!! You are smart and bright and joined this group to help you overcome. You are the best. Keep it up!

Rebecca H.

Wow, thank you, Becca! :)

How much water do you drink a day?

Do you flavor it with something?

I love ice water, plain. I don't count how much I drink or have any goals. I just drink when I want...but I want a lot.:joy: I also hate taking bathroom breaks.

Alice B.

I aim for 1/2 my body weight in ounces. I will sometimes add in unsweet tea on the days. I do I count this in with my ounces.

Ugh... On Wednesday morning I had about 1.2kg to lose to win this round. Tough, but doable. Ate really well Wednesday and Thursday. Then I decided to have a bit of a treat on Friday, which OF COURSE turned into Saturday and Sunday, too.... Aaaand now I need to lose 4.2kg to win this round. Mostly bloating and water weight, yes, but even so. Let's go!!

The weekends are always my downfall too. I'm not sure how to break the cycle. I'll do well all week and then undo my progress on the weekend.
