  • Metismomma: Oh goodness, more supplements! Okay, I will try the selenium and zinc and DIM. I WAS taking my temps, and they were so low. Then I got suspicious because I actually have energy right now, though thyroid has been a problem. So I took my husband's temp, it was low too. this dude is a lean mean energetic machine. No way I thought. So I took my temp 3 times in 3 minutes and they were all wildly different. It talked to a scientist friend and he said the only reliable thermometer is mercury and they are not legal for oral temps so I gave up. Do you have a thermometer recommendation?

    I use to use progesterone cream but that doesn't teach your body to make more progesterone. There has to be an answer! Maybe the genius Jack Kruse has an answer?

    I'm sorry for your struggle too, it is so unfair! How can some people be in perfect balance and eat twinkies all day and people like us can't get away with anything?

    Meats:

    You always know what to say when I'm in the sewer. What a beautiful and inspiring piece of art you have shared. I shal frame it and put it in my kitchen whilst smoking my pickle.

    I know your right, like Stephanie over at paleo for women says, it takes time, years even. oi

    Journal:

    So I know I like to think that my shit don't stink but the weird thing is before my illegal triste with yogurt my doody was unscented. Then I fed the nefarious bacteria and it smelled like oooh oooh oooh oooh. Crazy man.

    I'm so sick of PMS, seriously I don't hardly have boobs but I feel like a knocked up bovine w/ several gallons per inflated teat for half the effing month. And of course my cravings kick in.

    I'm not patient, I just want to be a balanced little pooped out marshmallow.

      • I use one call Geratherm, its a mercury free thermometer that I found at Walmart(of all places) Its much like a mercury(glass, shake that crap down). I also use a digital thermometer, its not perfect but it does the job. Plus I have 3 other guinea pigs to use it one to see if its even vaguely working right. My dh's temps are higher than mine, and he does have hypothyroidism. The kids are little furnaces.
        Apparently my body can get away with anything. It just decided it wanted to be 15lbs heavier and no, its not changing no matter how little/many carbs, calories, exercise I do. Ate 4 slices of pizza last night...nothing. Its like it just decided one day, "Hey, I think I want an extra 15lbs. Why? Cuz fuck you , that's why." I'm just going to keep on keeping on.

        Stinky poop. Could it be a lactose/dairy intolerance? Did I miss you saying that before? If you did, well, I missed it.
        Calm the f**k down.

          • Is there anybody out there?

            I feel like I'm missing a limb w/o NSWOM

            Yay:

            -my body temps have gone up since starting daily cold showers in June. Use to be in the 96s, now 97.3 or more! Of course that doesn't mean I am now a faster matabalizer, because it just never works like that for me.

            -my husband and I graduated from counseling after 7 years.

            -Now I can afford acupuncture (Community! sliding scale!), which is helping my low grade constant anxiety I have developed since returning to work.

            -my husband applied to grad school. Maybe one day I can walk away from teaching.

            Boo

            -My waistline is increasing and my appetite is off the charts now that I'm at work again. Stresszilla.

            -all these skinny chicks at work live off doughnuts and cake and pizza. What's wrong with me? I use to be able to lose weight. It's like there's this blockage, but WHAT IS IT?

            -I have weird mucusy stools. Off the dairy once more starting Sun.

            -a kid stole my keys and my camera. off my desk. he's 7. Yes it was intentional and malicious. Actually he stole 2 sets of keys, but could only find 1. They are $200 because they are the remote for the car.

            Still trying to stay positive y'all.

            • I'd like to say "I'm still here!" but I actually only just got back. @_@

              I have the worst luck with thermometers. Either that or my family members' temperatures are really all over the place. This latest fancy digital one we got measures up to five degrees different per reading... useless! Aaagh. And none of them ever match each other.

              I wonder if the body temp change is due to the showers or the season? Both?

              Counseling! As in... couples counseling, recipients thereof? OR schooling? I'm easily confused. @_@ Optimus has a counseling license. Either way, congratulations to you both.

              How have things been now that you're back at work for a while longer than when this was first posted?

              The skinny sugarburners are so frustrating, aren't they? And I'm married to one. (He's paleo now, but it was pretty maddening a while back...)

              I would bet the weight-loss blockage for you is stress, esp. considering you mention anxiety, new work, etc. Which sucks.

                I found a $20 MURCURY THERMOMETOR but I am too cheap to buy it. so who the hell knows what my real temps are? They do go up and down. I think cold showers raised my temps, they are getting harder and harder to do. my husband is keeping me motivated because he does them too. And is now more adapted then me.

                We were in marriage counseling and are now toughing it out alone together. So far, so good.

                I Effing hate skinny sugarburners.

                and yes, FINALLY I have come to the conclusion that STRESS is my root cause. Get me out of this stressy stress hell.

                • MAJOR win for Me2 kind today. A halloween with no candy, no treats, nada. Nary a fruit passed these lips, and it was SO easy! This, my friends, is worth celebrating.

                  Does that mean I am getting skinny? No, of course not. because my root cause is STRESS. I am swimming in a stress bath that has led to an anxiety disorder wherein I just always have anxiety about everything and nothing. Wack.

                  Mitigating it by:
                  accupuncture
                  adrenal pills
                  coffee enemas (oh gawsh I KNOW) I Just pretend I'm from another country where it is totes normal

                  plus the usual meditation,GAPS yoga, sleep like a teenager, etc...

                  What's yer thoughts on Jack Kruse epi paleo? That's a lot of fish. Obviously his followers are making six figures or stripping on the weekend or both.

                  • Thought/read about amino acids for stress/anxiety? I know it's just supplemental (ie. not going to "fix" things, most likely), but it could help while you figure stuff out.

                      • Get a hold of "The Mood Cure" and give it a read. I wouldn't be comfortable making recommendations... Personally, I take 5-HTP for depression, and L-Tyrosine for anxiety. The combination works very well for me. DLPA worked REALLY well for my anxiety, but left me completely wired. I got about 2 hrs of sleep the following night after taking it in the morning. You can get just DPA (only on Amazon, it would appear), so I might try that at some point. I felt super focused and like everyday social situations were just everyday social situations and not a big deal in the least.

                        • Just thought I'd mention that I've read my way through most of your journal.. and loved it.

                          Hope things are going well for you...

                          • Awe, thanks. It always amazing that people like my drivel. Things are quite good, actually. I celebrated 1 yr on GAPS and I'm still going strong. I am one of those annoying people that is learning to be content as I am. It reminds me of the toast in Bridget Jones Diary.

                            Is there a niggling little beast in the back of my head that still says, "Maybe someday you will be skinny? Yes. But most days I am just happy, and enjoying sex more, consequently.
