    Well, my stubborn body likes to get stuck at the 200 marker and I am beginning the leptin reset today. I know it has to be off because I have been overweight/obese for so long and it takes me a long time to drop weight. I still have 40lbs give or take a few lbs to go. I am not going to journal everyday, although that would be cool if I could. I just know with the boys, I don't get much time to post anymore. I will just update as I go, when I can.

    So, stuck at 204 and had about 56g of protein for breakfast. Wasn't hungry when I ate and even more not hungry now. I had blood work done a few weeks ago and waiting to hear from the dr. today as to where I am at with it all. I should update with some pics of progress so far. Let me see what I can muster up.

        So, day 3 of the Leptin reset and doing wonderfully, lost all sweet tooth cravings. Feeling full all day long, no snacking, no bingeing and have begun to sweat. I think this is the exact thing I needed. Sleeping solidly at night, not feeling so fatigued when I wake up or throughout the day. Rock on!! The past 3 mornings my protein intake in the morning have been anywhere between 55-73g. I also upped my Vitamin C and am taking some 500g magnesium 2x a day.

          Still going steady on the Leptin reset. My meal "times" are all thrown off though. I get up early with the kids for school so I am eating a large breakfast at like 6:30-7 and then find myself hungry around 3pm and skip dinner then. No weight shift yet, but I am sure it will come.

            Slammed with the stomach bug in this house for 5 days now :*( Boo!! I am down 2lbs and I didn't even have the bug...but I think for sure yesterday I had the flu....sore and achy all day, stomach pains like nobody's business, but never threw up or went to the bathroom. So weird. Anyway, we finally went 30 hours without a kid puking..hopefully we will be on the upswing of this puppy. That was extremely frustrating and I didn't stick to the leptin reset as far as eating within a 1/2 hour of rising there were many days I didn't eat breakfast, it was too chaotic with all the mess going on in here. Maybe tomorrow I will shoot for it again.

              I FINALLY had a breakthrough!! Hit the 199 mark!! WooHoo!! Never EVER see that number 200 again!! I won't be pregnant again, so no worries of having to gain weight from that anymore, this baby factory is closed!! Wanted to be fit before my 40th birthday and I am well on my way!! I am only 38, can easily do this before the end of the summer. Clothes are getting looser and I haven't even been working out. Still got the bum foot, so I do little weight excercises now and again and only this week started taking walks with the kiddos during the week, nothing that I would consider workout noteworthy.

                Also wanted to add that I am not being faithful at all with the leptin reset. It has been so humid and hot up here that the thought of eating, makes me ill. I was also glad to read Mark's post last week about the whole 65g of protein in the morning when you are not hungry and I am still losing so I don't think the leptin was really the issue...who knows...but we plug along.

                  Just had to go through the journal to find out what my lowest was and that was 197 and that was after I had the + pregnancy test....hmm so I thought I was at pre-pregnancy but alas 2 more lbs. OK, well 2lbs to be under pre pregnancy and then I have 17lbs to be at wedding weight....would like to lose a total of 39 more lbs, we will see what my body does.

                    Well, hit 196 so that makes me below pre pregnancy weight, just shy of his 1st birthday. July 20th, 2011. Still plugging along. Nothing really exciting to add. Haven't really worked out still, got to put that on the list LOL!! I just can't find the time with all the kids home at this point.

                      Well here I am March 2013 and I haven't updated in a while. The longest plateau of my life right now. Just started taking some 5HTP and GABA at night to help control cravings and help me feel not so blue. It's been a long winter and working out has been so hard on me. I think though I am hitting a breakthrough and I am changing course here. I found out why working out makes me gain so much and why I stall with losing. I am not eating enough, ugh!! I really am making a point now to keep up my 6 day workout schedule. Doing at home lifting heavy 3x a week and 2 other days get out and walk. I think all along this has been a problem. I get so tired when I workout on paleo. I don't think I am timing my carbs right either. So the plan going forward is some carb refeeding and see where it leads me

                        Well, we are 2 days into the Carb Nite and well, it's going just fine. Yesterday we went to a friend's house and I could kick myself for not being better prepared. I was starving half the day. I ate high protein/fat for breakfast and that was it all day. We thought we were having lunch at a friend's house and it turned out to be dinner instead and I went all day without eating, then she finally put some cheese out and I ate way too much of it, then ate dinner late, just some chicken and veggies. By the time we came home I fried up some leftover london broil in butter and a salad because there wasn't enough to satiate me at the house we visited, one small thigh LOL. I hate when stuff like that happens...oh well, it's funny now.

                        Today has been easy peasy at keeping carbs under 30. Did some gardening today and cleaned the house, the kids spent a lot of time outside with the beautiful weather we have been having. 8 more days will go just as easily I am sure, since this is the part that I know best. The carb refeed will be the thing that may throw me off mentally LOL. I haven't weighed myself yet, I will do it on the 10th day morning. I am trying to resist.

                          Carb Nite is fantastic!! So stoked things are moving. I am still on orientation week and Day 6 actually. Yesterday I hit the wall with ULC. Keeping carbs under 30g isn't tough to figure out, thanks to primal. Energy wise it has been tough. Today is a training day. I am down 4lbs so far WOOHOO!! The scale is FINALLY FRIGGIN MOVING AGAIN. Gosh I hate stalls, especially one that has taken a year. I am going to do training today rest tomorrow then training Saturday, HIIT Sunday, Training Monday and Monday is my Carb Nite. I have a good plan of some insulin raising foods.

                          Pretty much keeping my macros at 1:1 ratio fat to protein and keeping the digestible carbs under 30 and that is working. If at some point I stop losing fat then I will go .5:1 fat to protein. I am so excited about this whole protocol. There have been so me awesome women over on the boards there who have been a tremendous help in transitioning. There are a lot of paleo people there. I think I am one of the only ones who has quite a bit of weight to lose but they all feel confident that it will melt away. I have a good weight training schedule set in motion, which I didn't really have before. That makes me feel confident too, that I am just not flying by the seat of my pants.

                            8lbs down on Carb Nite!! My next Carb Nite will be a clean carb nite...going to start out with sweet potatoes or sushi and then have a dessert.

                            Currently listening to Robb Wolf podcast with John Kiefer the Carb Nite author. Heard he was going to be speaking at Paleo FX this year.

                              9lbs down on Carb Nite and I am absolutely loving it!! Getting strong and losing inches. Almost 3 inches gone in my waist. I am averaging about 2400 calories a day (that's with my carb nites in there) So I would say on average I am eating around 2200-2300 and Carb nite itself I am hitting about 3-4000 cals. The key for me has been the fat to protein, keeping it 1:1. 1g of fat to 1g of protein and trying to top my protein at my goal weight or around there. I love my ultra low carb days and love the cheat night once a week, it's all around working to spike the insulin and keep it from tapping out at the bottom and I am losing fat without sacrificing muscle!! I am going to get to my goal weight for sure!!
