I hope this is some sort of blip - can’t find my check in thread! Habitcal is still there. Could it have been accidentally deleted? Has this happened to anyone else? Maybe I’m just not seeing it.

That's odd. There were some more spam posts, wonder if it accidentally got deleted

OK...trying not to panic. I will simply start a new check in here....until hopefully I find the old one.

Decent day, eating wise. Slightly joyless otherwise - spent the morning sorting DD’s manic, messy room, throwing out clothes galore, and trying to create order. Then DD was angry with me for throwing away a particular bikini. Was amazed that she even remembered it! Then did lots of computer-bound work, fetched car from garage, paid enormous bill, ran DD to Ballet, missed my own music class, carried on working and here I am.

As I walked round to pick up the car, I recognised the gnawing, tense emptiness that at one point would have been soothed by food. I wasn’t tempted, and I thought how strange it is to not be tempted. What has changed? In the old days, my head would have been something like this: ‘You might as well eat it now, then you can forget about it, because it’ll get in your mouth sooner or later! And besides, you’re not that big, you are normal, and a lot of women are fatter. And who can tell the difference between a size 12 and a 14? And no one will look at you even if you do lose weight. And if you resist this one time, how is that going to help? You’ll have to keep on resisting over and over again, which is impossible. And what else do you have to look forward to today?...’ etc etc. Phew, my head was a busy place. Now though, I just think of the Habitcal, and think of the weekend ahead, and consider how eating a snack will somehow mess up the balance of my day. I don’t have to even think about weight loss. What a miracle!

I’m now going to log onto No S via my laptop and see if my check-in thread might have re-materialised.

Thanks, Soprano! If it doesn’t turn up, I’ll email Reinhard.

It's fantastic!!!!! Congratulations!

I see myself reflected in what you say, now my situations of daily stress do not lead me to overeat ... Smile

Kathleen, thank you - where was it? How did you find it? I looked everywhere! You are a star. 💐

Hi Dalia, thanks for popping by again, and great that you are also experiencing this magical change!

Right, I’m abandoning this thread now and going back to my proper one. Very Happy Embarassed
