    But you said you gotten steriods. Those are hormones and they do not disappear from your body quickly.

    You are on the right track with PB for reprogramming your body (and thus your hormone levels), but you will have to give your body more time. It will need to level the hormone balance to a normal level before it will allow you to loose weight. Your body will fix itself and keep it's protective layer of fat as long as needed.
    Yep, thanks. I am blessed & I will kick back enjoy this journey. Now I'm going to go collapse for a bit- gym killed me today)

      As odd as this sounds, I tend to lose fat and "bad weight" whenever I inrease my protein intake. And I eat approximately 5 times a day...nothing huge, though. I just get hungrier during the morning hours and feel I need more snack meals (mostly a protein first). Then I eat less in the late afternoons/evenings.

      Two weeks, in my opinion, is not enough time to determine the success of any dietary lifestyle change. People who have gone Paleo/Primal were given a 30-day challenge. Not 15 days, but 30. Some people noticed that halfway through, they felt awful and lacked energy...but they were told to continue and not to quit. By the time they reached the 30-day mark, their energy improved, complexion improved, and they dropped fat weight.

      Keep plugging away at it. At least from a logical viewpoint, you are eating healthier food choices and "cleaner" foods which are still a benefit, right? Then, at the end of 30 days, re-evaluate yourself.

        Sound advise! I felt really strong at the gym today. Yup, my energy level has not only returned but increased in just a few weeks. THAT is what I'm talking about! Thanks, 'dude

          Squash is bad? Oh no. Is it not considered a vegetable? I had spaghetti squash this week.

            Who said squash is bad? Squash isn't bad. It is a vegetable, but squashes tend to be higher in carbs, so if you're trying to keep that and/or sugar consumption low, it's not a great option.

              Yeah, I wondered about the squash too. Monday will be 21 days for me. Girls asked me at gym today how much weight have I lost. Told them the number hasn't changed really as I'm toning and building muscle. Compliments are good

                Actually, squash is fruit. But it's really good for you! Just pay attention to how much of it you're eating if you are trying to keep carbs low.

                  Really watch your portions and limit total carbs to 100 per day. Track it on FitDay or somthing like that for a couple weeks. Get a food scale and measuring cups. Then you will know for sure what's going into your body. Keep following the plan and results will come!

                    Remember that measurements are more important than weight. Sometimes weight can stay the same or increase, while our measurements get smaller

                      Yup, not going to follow the numbers on scale. I do have Fitday and love it. Bought The Paleo Cookbook. Running out of ideas...
                      thanks guys for the encouragement. Happy now with energy to spare.

                            So I've given this another week or so and the numbers are absolutely the same. I am thinking that I must consider fat/ calorie intake. I'm now walk/running/sprinting intervals and weights 3x week ( not a lot of time "building muscle" so don't believe that to be an issue).

                            Haven't weighted myself since the beginning of this thread. Went to oncologist yesterday so my weight was taken and d%#! I haven't lost any weight in over a month! What the heck? Can one eat too many good fats?

                            I am only 5'3" and weight 150. Here's another sample menu of mine:

                            B= 2slices bacon, one egg omelet with onions & mushrooms.
                            No snack
                            L= not real hungry so eat handful almonds or hard boiled egg.
                            D-= ribeye and BAS.
                            Handful of blueberries.

                            Pay no mind to stupid ticker. Not accurate ( I am typing on iPad and I can't remove it

                            Coming in under 1200 calories daily according to 'MyFitnessPal' app. Eating a lot of protein, almost zero carbs and a lot of good fats.

                            You guys have been supportive and encouraging in the past. Hope someone can put a finger on pulse of my stall

                              Us women tend to focus to much on the number on the scales, and that in it self is enough to make you stressed out. Stress is not good, that's one of the things one tries to avoid on primal. Forget about the scales, focus on being happy and healthy, that's what really matters isn't it? Besides it can often take a long time for women to lose weight/get healthy. It's just not as easy for us as for men. I tend to think it's because our bodies like to hold on to a bit of fat in case of pregnancy.
