    Good Points!

    Definitely don't worry about the extra 2 lbs, there are so many factors like water retention, etc. that could be adding to that. As long as you feel great it's all good and the weight will keep coming off! Also keep in mind that you might be building up some muscle since you've been exercising a decent amount! Muscle is denser than fat, so you may not be losing weight per se but are probably shrinking in inches. Maybe it's time for you to take some measurements (waist, chest, thigh, etc.).

    Have a great rest of your week!
    Hmm. Good points Anna!
    I am smaller in my clothes, so yeah... Measuring time!

    Have a fantastic weekend!
    Cheers!

You will need to know how much you are eating so you can adjust on a weekly basis. If you accidentally binge you can always throw in a low calorie day. Saves time and spares you the drama.

      Thanks Firecehunter, I'll take that into consideration!

              Hi all!
              Last night we made beef ribs in the pressure cooker and they came out awesome, falling off the bone!
              We'll certainly do that again, maybe even this week.
              I slathered some of mine with Primal Barbecue Sauce and the rest with a few dabs of horseradish. Whew, that's spicy, but good!

              Today, I'm going to a longtime client's house for consulting and dinner, so I'm fasting today for what may be a slightly un-primal dinner. We'll see.
              Cheers!

                Hi Paleo Folks!

                Hi all!
                For dinner Tuesday night (at my long-time clients') we had Barbecued chicken, homemade Broccoli soup with organic chicken broth from TJ's and Red Velvet Cake (which I ignored, but had to take home for my family).

                Yesterday:
                B. 12PM Sardines
                D. Roast Beef (oven baked@225 8+ hours, REALLY good!) veggie mix (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower).

                Today, who knows? I'm starting with Bull&tpr0of C0ffe& and will walk for an hour (soon, it's starting to get HOT out!)
                Cheer!

                  Hi all!
                  Today I weighed and guess what? I'm down another pound!
                  Whoo Hoo!
                  The weekend was good, lots of moving around and good food.
                  I may be in a hard spot, but I'm still moving in the right direction.
                  Cheers!

                    Eating Primally is really working out for me!
                    I'm fasting today, until tonight when I'll have the Primal Texas Chili I've been cooking all day for dinner. I added some Cayenne powder for extra snap... Wife will LOVE IT!
                    It smells great!
                    Cheers!

                      Hi All!
                      I weighed this morning and am flat for the week, no change. I'm not worried. I have been stressed this past week, so that's likely the culprit. This week should be better.
                      I'm eating Primally, and feeling fine!
                      Cheers!

                        I got to thinking about last week: I drank a lot of booze (for me anyway) on Friday night. Any effect? Maybe. No booze this week. No dairy either. I would like to see some real progress this week!
                        Cheers!

                          Whoo Hoo!
                          Success!
                          I weighed and am now down to 272.5!!!!
                          The staying away from booze and cheese worked (and a couple fasting days didn't hurt either)!
                          This has been my best week yet, with a loss of 5 and a half pounds!
                          Cheers!

                            Phenomenal Charlie! Good work!

                            I'm loving the intermittent fasting, most of the time I either skip breakfast (reducing my eating window to 12pm-7pm) or I skip lunch because I'm so full from a bacon-filled breakfast! I might have to try a full-day fast soon. Or maybe start by going down to one meal around 2pm.

                            Have a great week!

                                Thanks ladies!
                                This week has been a good one, with bacon and eggs for breakfast (11AM or so) and just a little salad and maybe chicken for dinner most days. Twice this week all I had for lunch (no breakfast, first meal 12PM) was a can of sardines or kippered herring, to boost my Omega3 intake. I fasted again today until dinner, and will do so again on Sunday. I really like seeing PROGRESS!
                                Have a fantastic weekend!
                                Cheers!
