  • 190 this morning. Normally I don't weigh more than once a day - always after I get up and tinkle. Always nekid.

    I forgot about the 3 tons of pellets that I moved on Wednesday - most of this is probably muscle healing - water retention. My whole body got a pretty good workout that day. I think I'll stay off the scale for a while.

      • Tomi...I agree with the muscles retaining some fluid. I too am up...& since I am inadvertently counting calories I know it's not fat weight but just inflammation. And sometimes I think it's just the mystery of being blessed with a female body! Still a little disconcerting to get on the ol scale & see bigger numbers instead of smaller ones.

        • Or...weigh yourself every hour for a couple of days, and realize you move all over the scale anyhow, and any individual number is just hooey.

            Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

              • Random thoughts.............

                cooking for one is not fun. If I had to do this all the time I would definitely do the cook ahead method. Tonight I'm baking 2 good sized Salmon fillets Enough to last me several days. And I love salmon enough to eat it multiple times a day and every day. Its currently marinating in Hoshita's (yes I know - bad stuff) and some other spices.

                I had about 2 pounds of ground beef in the fridge that we bought at Costco last weekend - I was going to fry it up - and it had gone bad How wasteful of me! grrrr!

                I haven't been following whole30 - although I had good intensions, I just didn't do it. I'm on my second booch for the day cuz my tummy seems to need a little boost.

                Thinking about trying something new. I seem to need some boundaries so I'm thinking of doing a weight watchers on line membership - and use their point system under PB rules. ??? just considering it at this point - any opinions?

                    • Tomi...don't feel bad...I have blown the whole30 too. For me I'm just gonna concentrate on no grains & definitely no gluten & no legumes too. Well imagine that! That's primal! lol. I may try another whole30 after the holidays. I'll probably need it although I surely hope not. I think there is no doubt in my mind now that gluten really messes up my tummy. I want to start experimenting with some recipes that sound good. Especially for the upcoming holidays. Gotta go back to mine own motto of being prepared.

                        • so I'm looking at the WWs site -- trying to decide if I want to fork over my money to use their system to help me get back on track. If you sign up for the 3 month plan you save the sign up fee. $57 for 3 months. I'm gonna think about it a bit longer - and hopefully get some advice here.

                          • tomi, what do you think WW's points has that will get/keep you on track that PB doesn't have?

                            • I haven't looked at WW in a long long time...I'm not sure how you would be able to use it eating primal. They allow grains...even sugar...legumes...flour. Seems the point system would be skewed. It never worked for me personally (doing it their way) cause it was too much food! lol. If you decide to try it I will be interested to see how it works for you.

                              • Given eenough time and effort, you/ I could probably devise a points system based on primal and the original macros.
                                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
