Hi guys thanks for replying again
I do agree with everyone, that it really just shows the character of the 'insulter' and has nothing to do with me...Kate and Chelle thanks for the concern re optifast, I felt the same way, but felt a little pressured by the psychologist to do the 'detox'...anyway, I spoke to him about it on friday, and have decided that I would like to see him ONLY for the 'therapy' side of my binge eating, and I decided I would make a one off appt with a nutritionist and see what she thought I should be doing....well, she agreed with you guys, that it seemed like a silly risk to take and that I should start implementing good eating habits now, rather than later as the loss would be hard to maintain cos it would be such an increase in food....SO LOL she was fab...she was about a size 16, but a very fit 16 and lovely..She has made me up a diet of about 1500 cals a day, and (to being with) 20 mins exercise and to build it up to about 45 mins per day...low gi foods, no sugar, no caffiene, 2 litres water, fresh fruit and veg, low fat cheese and dairy, lean meats, wholegrain breads and legumes...which is great, connor can eat what I eat! yay!
(sure makes it easier!) So, Im starting her program today, and it seems really easy! Thanks to the psychologist, I have some strategies put in place for when the binge monster comes calling (crocheting, long stitch, going for a walk, drinking water, chewing gum and keeping my hands busy, like with playdough or lego with connor) So yeah, thats what Im doing! God I hope this is it...I hope I dont fall off too often and that I can stick this out....unlike the opti, at least I know that this is a life style change, that I can keep it up for life and that connor is seeing me set a good example by eating healthy!
