Day 12 Son of DDDY Challenge: Where breathing issues persist, where I'm 1/5th of a pound down, and where I refuse to self-comfort with food...


Yes. Another 1/5th of a pound down.

Tomorrow I'll post about the results of my DNA test--the one I posted about a couple weeks ago, the one to detect what would be my optimal diet.

Today, I woke up late, but then I went to bed, early. Almost 7 am. Breathing issues kept me up. When I finally conked out, it was a blessing. I did have an extra snack cause staying up so long left me hungry in the wee hours. I kept it modest and didn't go over my calories. Been drinking a ton of decaf--gourmet from Paradise Roasters early, easy to mix VIA instant (no sugar, Italian roast) late at night when I don't wanna make a pot. I prefer regular coffee, but in the last couple weeks, been trying to do more decaf so it doesn't mess with my sleep.

I've done fine not giving in to crazed comfort food cravings. They're hitting hard on and off, but so far, so good. I just keep reminding myself that I have far too many pounds to lose before I sleep (and Carb Tripper put that metaphor in my head).

Food log:

This may be it , depending on when I manage to hit the sack.

I was wondering about that test and if you had gotten the results or not. I am interested in how that all works.

And WTG on fighting the cravings. Everything is a choice. Are we committed or not? It isn't easy but it is doable.

I am also interested to hear about the DNA test so keep up posted. Hey I also like to eat different things for breakfast sometimes..

I'm curious about your DNA results too because I saw something about that on Dr. Oz awhile ago.

I think the DNA would be a great thing -
I hope they give you news that you like!
As opposed to having to eat "yukky" stuff!

And thanks for the shout-out! Yay!

I am waiting patiently for further results from DNA testing, I am actually quite curious.
Also congrats on your progress so can be a long and hard journey at times but the rewards are never ending.
Keep up the good work
