    Day 18, I had a good night sleep till 6am and then all hell broke loss. I was twisting and turning in so much pain, I had cramp in every part of my lower body. I suffer with cramp when on low carbs high fat high protein, I always take supplements. I felt hungry but really sick at the same time, I laid there till 7am and then got myself a protein drink as I really could not eat anything. Well 5mins later I was in the bathroom, I was as sick as a dog 3 times. I have gastroenteritis yet again, last year I got it 5 times. This is the down fall of working with 2 year olds This is going to be fun for 4-5 days, oh well a free detox

    I have been reading so much here on the forum about you all dealing with cramps, I always wondered why we get so much of it. You all seem to be controlling it in your own ways, is there a limit to Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium ect?

    I just made myself 30g white rice in some salty water, I need to get something in me as I ache plus I got to go to work this afternoon I hate that I just had the rice and I hope it does not mess with me, but I think its better than the dried toast you were given as a kid.

      Day 19,

      I got out of work early and was in bed by 8:30pm, I was shivering for 2 hours last night with no fever, I then slept 10h I got up once and ate a banana and some grapes, this morning I feel not to bad. Work said it was a 24h virus, its amazing how many virus are around and so many new ones everyday. The area where I work has tourist from all over the world all year round, bringing with them their virus. Today I will take it easy, well kind of I have so much to do. What I mean is no hiking today, I will go tomorrow morning.

      I am a little nervous as I am having a meeting with the local Mayor and dog owners tomorrow afternoon. Its for a dog park, domestic pets in Italy are a new thing and they have no idea of their needs. It took 8 years of fighting to get a dog beach, but we got it I don't need a dog park as I hike in the hills and mountains with my dogs, but its for the dogs in the city and their owners. Italians are great at moaning but never do anything about it, they don't fight for what they need. I say GET UP, STAND UP, STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS Bob Marley

      I would not have been able to do this tomorrow if I was still depressed, 20 days ago I was a waste of space and did not want to live life as it should be lived. I am so happy I am such a strong person and wish others could follow my footsteps, I know some of us have weak characters and it feels impossible to move on . But we have to fight for ourselves and stop killing ourselves, no one else is going to do it for us. Don't wait for family, friends and others to help, you must do this alone. I know you feel sad and your hurting bad, but don't let what ever is keeping you where you are win. We have all suffered in life and believe me I know what suffering is, my list is so long I am amazed I am still here. I realise now I have been given this gift to fight and that is what I am going to do LIVE.

            Oh thank you natashik85 (little tear in my eye), I feel the same way for myself and its such a great feeling. I have always been there for others and never for myself, but in my time of suffering when I really needed family and friends I realised I had to make it on my own. Some friends I asked why they had abandoned me and they said they never realised I needed them, that I was so strong that they envied me (even my sister said she envied me). I just think people can't cope and are scared, so they stay away. Example: my friend 7 years ago was dying of cancer and she had 3 months left to live, so I moved in with her and her family. I spend one month with her. It was a fantastic time I spent with her, we laughed, we cried, we watched crap TV and ate junk food. I remember saying to her "I don't eat this shit its bad for you" and she laughed saying well I will be dead in a month I don't give a F*. In that month I was with her she had no visitors, just some close family. Her friends would call her husband but not talk to her it was so sad. She died a week after I left, I did not go to the funeral and she knew I would not be there as I was going through IVF. At the funeral there was hundreds of people, but while she was still alive there was no one. People need you when they are alive, if someone close to you in suffering try to do just something small for them. I know not everyone can help, but let others know that that person is in pain if you can't help them. My x partner never helped me, but he was not capable. But he could of seeked help for me or at least told my family how bad thing were.

              Good day not done much, been a bit lazy but I still feel weak. I made eggs for lunch and did not eat them, my stomach is shut down. Not been sick any more, but I have not eaten. I have been drinking lots though, I think the virus has passed and I will feel better tomorrow. I have to feel better tomorrow, I want to look my best. I may go and get my hair done, I can't remember last time I did that. I bet they are to busy on a Saturday morning to have me Off to bed, sweet dreams to you all.

                My tummy rumbling woke me up at 6:30am, it was so loud even the dogs wondered what it was Now 10:30am and still not eaten, but going to see what I can make into a smoothie. I don't like to drink food, but for some reason I am able to drink but not eat. I am not hungry and can not even think about eating, very strange. Maybe my stomach is closed because I am nerves about the meeting today...

                Can't get my hair done so going to do it myself DIY well wish me luck for today with the Mayor, I will let you know later how it all went.

                  Day 20 over and in bed...

                  My day was "BRILLIANT" the Mayor was really positive and we went to see some land, I am so happy. I will go back tomorrow and take some photos, it's a lovely area. The land is not huge, but it is enough for our little town. My hair turned out ok, but it really needs a cut.

                  Still not eaten much today, but I have been getting my vitamins and protein. 21 days tomorrow I am so proud of myself

                    Day 21 all done and over, how wonderful do I feel out of 10 I would say I feel about 8/10. Three weeks ago I would have said 1/10, the 1 would have been because I was alive.

                    So I miss my cheese when cooking and would like to add it back soon, my coffee black is ok. But I feel a bit limited with my food, it's been 13 days, I really have to wait 30 days?

                    Had a good day looking at land and I think we have found 3 great spots, one to the east, centre and west of town.
                    Next week maybe some more exercise added to my hiking, will see how I feel

                      Day 22...everything feels positive for me now, I still have a few things to sort out and I may open up my heart soon to you all. I feel strong but still a little lost, I know first I must get myself back to been healthy and then work on the other problems. They are not real problems, but I need to move out of this house and begin a new life. I really don't think it would be good for me to try and make a new start with my ex, who I still live with (separate rooms).

                      In 21 days I am down 11lbs and my measurements are...

                      Start: Top of Arm 40cm Bust 112cm Waist 95cm Hips 120cm Thigh 70cm Calf 41cm

                      Today: Top of Arm 36cm Bust 103cm Waist 83cm Hips 112cm Thigh 64cm Calf 39cm

                        I have a strange body, I don't know if I have a long torso or short arms and legs. That's why I had problems getting a bike to fit me, I could not afford to get one made. My torso is the same length as a person who is 6' I am 5'6" If I sit on the floor legs straight out in front of me and then I try to put my hands flat on the floor at my sides like they tell you to I can't. The palm of my hands is about 3" away from the floor that is why I had so much back problems (fingers crossed no more). Anyway I am very lucky I have a very small waist, I think that is why I have lost so much there first

                          Day 24...

                          yesterday was a very busy and but I got a good hike in early morning.

                          Today at work on my longgggggggg hours, I am doing great and have no tales to tell. I have decided to add dairy back at the weekend, I read to eat lots when you do and see what happens. So at the moment I must be 100% Primal, but if I decide to eat dairy what will that make me! !!

                            Day 26...

                            Sooooooo busy yesterday running around the whole town to get signatures on my petition, gosh some people are hard work.

                            Never think about food and have to make myself stop and eat, I never snack. Hope adding back dairy is not a problem tomorrow, will it mean if I eat dairy I will not be 100% Primal!!!

                            Off for a long hike now, thinking about what to start adding to my exercise routine next week. I feel my food is sorted and now I can move on to more exercise. I will still hike 4-5 days a week 2-3 hours, was thinking of going swimming if I can find the time.

                            If I don't write for a few days, its because I am very busy...I have not given up and I promise myself I never will

                                Day 29...

                                So I added cheese, cream and Greek yoghurt back this weekend and had no reactions at all. I will carry on eating them, but I will not exaggerate. It will be interesting to see if my weight loss slows down the next week.

                                In 4 weeks 28 days I have lost 14lbs, which has been no work at all. I have been eating when hungry and having between 30-80 carbs, I have not become obsessed with numbers. My protein has been 60-140 and the rest fat, some days I ate very little but I was not hungry. I have been hiking 4-5 days a week 2-3 hours and not anything else other than walking everywhere. I lift heavy 2 years olds 3 days a week, but this week I hope to add some other exercise. I am feeling more confident and have been walking around town without worrying if people are looking at me, I got into a pair of jeans I bought a few years ago I put some make-up on which I have not done in years, what can I say its a miracle. No its not a miracle, its called taking control of your life and wanting to live and be healthy. To wake up and want to get up and do things, to never need a nap and think about food all day long. I am still not used to getting up early, I would lay in bed all day I would even eat in bed. Now I say to myself oh its only 7am you can sleep some more, but I can't stay there I have to get up 30 days ago I was down a big dark hole, it took 3 years to crawl out. But I did it and so can you, I don't care what you have suffered you don't deserve to suffer any more. What ever hurt you, don't let it win we have one life so lets live it.

                                I was abused as a child sexually and beaten, I had a very sad hard childhood (happy time's too), but it made me strong and independent. Of course it paved my road of life, never trusting and always getting in trouble I was a rebel. I could never keep a guy because I had so many hang ups and of course sex for me was a big problem. I come from a very big family, but never really felt part of it. I left England when I was 23, I could not live where I had so many memory's plus my dad had died who I loved so very much. I tried to heal myself and did a good job until I met an abusive man, it took me 5 years to get away from him. I have been now with a very good man for 15 years, but he has never known how to be there for me and so I am not happy. We have drifted apart and I now need to move on, I think I will stay alone its best for me. I can't hurt myself and others just don't know how to be there for me. I dream to be with a person who can read me like a book and understand me, I just have this wall that is hard to see over.

                                So no matter how hard you are suffering, move on and live your life. Its not easy I know, but it is 100% possible.

                                Hugs to you Cavemanclan
