    I totally agree with you, AnaMargarida! I just occasionally lose my resolve not to care about my weight anymore even though I’d much rather spend my energy on other things.

    Gazelle–Thank you for posting the info about diastasis recti. I’m pretty sure I fit the profile. I’m sure others who find this thread will be helped by that also.

    Rob–That is interesting about people freaking out at the eleventh hour. I have occasional freakouts, but now that I’ve been ETFing I don’t think I can ever go back to major food restrictions, especially now that I know it won’t work long-term.

    Thank you, Rob, mangosorbet, and scarlettsmum for your replies and input.

    Rob–I’m going to print out your post and put it on my bulletin board. I think you’re so right about a sense of meaning and purpose being important. While I was low-carbing I spent all my limited free time surfing the web for palatable protein recipes instead of pursuing things that are more meaningful. I’m a painter and during that whole time I didn’t do any artwork at all, instead I spent hours on failed experiments with coconut flour and ended up with a lot of really horrible-tasting muffins.

    My energy’s fine, and I’m starting to do yoga and pilates a few times a week so I’m hoping that will help. My weight, despite being high, is pretty stable at this point, and my temps are in the 98s after years of being in the 97 degree range. So for now I think I will take your advice and try to add more exercise and build strength.

    I feel your frustration, mangosorbet, and scarlettsmum. Scarlettsmum, thanks for sharing your strategy–it sounds better than restricting certain foods or severely cutting back calories. I agree about no bingeing, that seems to be what makes me gain weight the most.
