    Thanks Old Mate, I forgot just how great Yoga makes you feel!

    Since I wrote this post I had a very bad night’s sleep and my temps were shocking the next day! I’m going to incorporate some yoga nidra into my day and hopefully that will compensate for my interrupted sleep.

    I have also finally made a cheesecake, (much to the joy of my family) after promising one but not having the appetite for all that cream and cheese :)

    I’m also writing 2 you on the soft drink thread

    I think 90skid to try weights if anything. At least, that was the advice Matt gave in diet recovery 2. But when you build muscle and bone density you gain weight. Try not to fixate on weight (easy to say) if you want to monitor whether or not you are gaining weight then please just remember to also see if your clothes still fit the same, that’s a better indicator. I imagine someone with your history of anorexia will want to fixate on the weight issue but really that will not help you out if you are training because you almost certainly will gain weight, but it probably won’t be fat and you will look a lot better.

    You might want to check your temperature, too and if it is good and stays good then you probably can safely exercise, if it drops, then stop.

    Godschild from my point of view what you have asked depends on a Euro-american cultural/ philosophical perspective which divides the mind from the body. So the quickest answer I could offer you is that it really depends on who is asking the question. The biomedical answer is probably something related to metabolism slowing down or some such sciencey thing that I don’t get.

    love, crinkly

    It sounds to me, saisrice, that you felt the saddest when you hadn’t eaten properly that day- “last night I cried and cried”. When you had a decent breakfast you were more optimistic and “happy to report”.

    also, tahini and almonds are good for calcium :)

    and yogurt of course.

    Interesting think about calcium is you need it twice a day, as you can’t absorb it all in one go.

    ha! My raw food vegan sister in law told me that the best way to get a day’s calcium is to boil an ounce of nettle leaves and drink that!

    I opted for milk and ribs (which I ate bone n all). You could try sardines if you can stomach em.

    When I didn’t drink milk I could smell it on people who drank lots of it, it’s just one of those things I think.

    it sounds like you live somewhere hot steven e?

    The grapefruit drink sounds lush. I’m trying to work out what and how to drink, but just keep fantasising about mountain springs and fresh ice cold water, then giving in and guzzling it only to be thirsty again soon after. I’ve usually consistently got a 36.3 temp and I am breastfeeding so I don’t want to disobey thirst signals. I am experimenting with different drinks though. Today I tried a lemon salt and sugar drink but this just ramped up my thirst and put my temp down! Do you ever add salt to your drinks?

    cheers, crinkly

    I have been craving lager loads recently, but I’m not enjoying the pissed feeling off it, so am considering shandy.

    Re cultivating grains for brewing, this article is interesting

    I definitely think all fizzy drinks are best tasting when swigged down for the first few gulps… A can of pop is also probably the best ever after salty fish and chips, like David, I believe it helps get the digestion going.

    I have been stuck on 36.3 for what seem slike ages and am starting an experiment only drinking a salty sugary drink which roughly consists of citrus juice with cold water, salt and sugar added. I actually crave the taste of fresh cold water but I am lucky in that we have very delicious spring water at home, not mains.

    I wonder if it’s possible to verify that McD use reverse osmosis filtration? That would surprise me.

    bear in mind this dish is fairly liquidy, at least, more so than a hot dog or burger.

    I don’t know what a raisinet is but also, the peach is juicy so extra liquid could be your culprit. I think for a temp change of .3 you need to be thinking about tiny differences.

    sounds strange- looks even stranger

    but I think it’s pretty much a top spa-style treatment but practically free… tidy!

    Hi, what I suggest is to stop wearing any synthetic fabrics under your armpits to help with the smelliness.

    Also, you can improve the appearance of cellulite in loads of ways, as I understand (but might be wrong) cellulite is pockets of fat that become visible because the skin condition is weak, so if you improve the skin, the cellulite “disappears”. You can groom the problem areas with something like a brush to increase blood flow.

    I can’t believe I’m admitting this out loud because it sounds strange but this is my favourite skin improving remedy: mix used coffee grounds with olive oil, you don’t need a lot, then after a hot wash scrub the cellulite area thoroughly with the mixture, then, wrap the bits up with cling film (yes), followed by a warm towel. Hang around like that for about 10 minutes, then wash it all off, I use very cold water. Afterwards, massage the olive oil in.

    you can get a non-hormone coil, but in my experience the mirena is offered out of preference, but non-hormone ones do exist. I have used them with no problems.

    Lianda, what if you feel as though the body image you have is only temporary?

    This is something that stops me from accepting the body I have. But this is also due to having extra weight from two pregnancies in quick succession, which is why I feel it is temporary. I imagine that I will lose extra weight when I wean my son, but do you think this is a negative way to think, and that it would be worth trying to accept things the way they are?

    I would be interested in how you see EFT working in this regard.

    Best wishes, crinkly

    I think a big problem is that for most of us what we equate with “healthy” isn’t the same as our body’s interpretation, so I would say to go with your body. If your body is telling you it’s better off- by making you fertile again- then listen to it, everything else is just superficial.

    easy to say, I know. I do sympathise with you, but we are all on a long process and it’s good that you’ve seen the improvement of getting your period back, so just stick with it and I bet you’ll see many more improvements which eventually will please you more than your old body and clothes.

    I have just come round to this way of thinking, and have stashed away my previous clothes so if I need them one day they will be there, but for now there’s no distractions undermining my progress at the moment.

    Good luck xx

    Yes, I have had a similar experience. I was doing quite well with eating main meal at lunch but timings of my day made this stressful and impractical and reduced productivity (I work from home). I prefer having the main meal in the day and whenever I can I gravitate towards that. I’ve never tried having a huge breakfast then smaller subsequent meals though.

    There’s an old saying, “Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper”
