Am traveling, hence weighing in this morning rather than in a couple of days.

I am sure everyone has different baselines, but I will say that I have found it is easier to win the battle at the grocery store and never bring certain foods home, and delicious sugary/salty and crunchy carby things make me crave a lot more of them. Your comment about the reduced cravings from the med for things like drinking is interesting as well, since I often found them to be very similar and a bit interchangeable once I started paying closer attention to both of them. It was easy for both to become habits/cravings after just a couple days of having a drink or a snack at a certain time of day.

makes me think of the drugs that exist to curb addictions in general - is this a category that could expand into that? or vice versa (not sure which is cheaper or more effective)

I’m on Vivitrol (like Naltrexone) for craving reduction, unrelated to food. A quick Google shows that it is sometimes used on-label for appetite suppression.

I never thought about the possibility that Vivitrol was affecting my appetite, but thinking back to when I started it and when my weight loss happened, it may have been a factor. Definitely not the primary reason for my weight loss, but my attitude toward food is less “I’m famished and need to eat something” and more “I feel some hunger, if I have a snack with calories appropriate to fit into the rest of the food I anticipate eating today, I’ll eat that to tide me over till lunch.”

Basically, I’m more likely to either reach for a clementine with 35 calories than a cookie with 150, or tell myself “lunch is in 90 minutes and you’re just bored.” I chalked this up to just willpower but I recognize I might be on a performance-enhancing drug.

Summary

I didn’t bother to save my weight history from the ao before it got canned. I started making an effort to drop some weight in late 2018 when I hit 206. Was between 180-185 for most of 2020. I’d look best around 160, but I am not willing yet to make the concessions on diet and exercise to get there. I like to eat well and I know what it takes to get me to 160. I think 170ish is a good goal for now.

Highest adult weight was 235 and lowest was 160. Both were over 20 years ago. I’m 5’11"

I had gotten out of the habit of the weekly weigh in since the ao died, so starting over.

naltrexone is the one I read about in an article about curbing addiction and response. made me want to have some on hand to cut down on some noise when I know it will appear within an upcoming predictable episode

I can’t say how effective it’s been to be honest, since I haven’t been willing to A/B test it by going off of it. Vivitrol is just the once-a-month shot to replace Naltrexone. It’s a bit pricier but I max my OOP by April at latest each year anyway. And Vivitrol can’t be accidentally or “accidentally” forgotten because there’s a wedding coming up and Naltrexone mutes the enjoyment received from alcohol.

(Sorry to thread derail, any further chat we should find elsewhere IMO.)

Eh. A little better, using a different scale in the that does not, from one minute to the next change my weight 2 lbs.
I might test them in the exact same place, to see if maybe it is my bathroom floor or what.

Saw a friend I hadn’t seen in a while recently to go swimming. They commented on my dramatically different appearance, felt good. Again, not looking to lose any more weight, if I drift into the low 150s I’m not bothered.
