Hello my name is Julie and I am new to FAA. I started one week ago and am having a fair amount of success. Having to tweak some teas that I was drinking and some other things but the food plan and planning my meals has been a tremendous help. The other major factor is turning to God for the courage to walk away from foods that are not on the plan. He is good and faithful!
My first question has to do with meal spacing and the MA at the end of the day.
I usually eat breakfast between 7:30 and 8:30 then lunch is at 11:30 and dinner should be at 4:30 - this is not what happens for me - dinner is usually at 6. I have always been the hungriest from 3 until 6 pm this is when i have the hardest time with wanting to eat things not on the plan. It also sets me up for having to have the MA at 10pm which is bedtime for me. Any suggestions?
My second question is trying to fit in phone or online meetings. The closest meeting where I live is 2 hours away - not happening! I see on the phone page to use a cell phone for the calls can cause an echo. The only time I have available to me is 5:45am which is when I would like to take a walk. How long do the meetings usually last? Does the echo affect everyone or just the person using the cell phone? I feel desperate to find a sponsor but realize I can't do that until I plug into the phone calls. I can't spend all day at work anymore browsing online help for advice and I need the accountability of committing my food.
This forum is such a supportive and accepting place to visit. It has been very encouraging and helpful in the last few days. :D
