It's amazing what one determined person can do.  If it was easy every one would be thin.  Remember this is a process and you have made astounding progress.  Has it become fun yet.

I think one pound of weight a week is very commendable. It is so easy to just eat and eat and eat. Losing it is another story. Just stay on track and remember you didnt gain the weight all at once, so you cant expect it to just fall off of you. At least that is the way I feel. I try to set goals, and was weighing myself once a week and it was working. Then the neph told me I had to weigh every day to make sure the weight gain was not water. ( Curses, foiled again) that part is discouraging, but I will work it out. Best of luck to you Kit.

Try keeping your diet weight in pounds once a week and your dialysis weight in kilos.  Just pretend they aren't related. Just another reason to hate dialysis.

I get the odd dietry frustration as well at times too. I hear ya. Other than that for me, it is motly about craving the odd thing, and MAKING DAMN SURE I research the item in question if at all possible, before I consume, or even purchase it. I got a BIG spanking, figuratively, when it came to Marmite, something I ordered off of Amazon.ca. I found it has plenty of Potassium, the infamous arrow to the Achille's Heel for me. I was so mad. I have to be so damn careful with it and treat it like a precious diamond, platinum and gold cache so I don't get a high potassium count like a blood count of 5 or any more. I must stay well under that. My warning signs are godawful when that happens. The warning is vomiting endlessly. That is my first clue-in that potassium is rising.

Now, the Marmite is really good. Problem is, I will need to restrict myself to 1 HALF a slice of toast with a thin spread of Marmite only 1-2 days a week, near dialysis. Other than that, no more! After the spanking and learning my lesson, I may not buy Marmite any more after this one, seeing how it works out. Fortunately I found Peer Pan peanut butter after the spanking and found I could have that more often, as I see much less potassium in that.
