  • This is it!!!!!

    26 yo female 5"11. Tired of dieting and chronic cardio. Dealing with harmonal imbalance that resulted in 15 lb gain in 3 weeks about 9 months ago. STILL haven't lost it but have developed some unhealthy binge like tendencies. Already established I have a gluten intolerance as my face swells when I partake.
    Starting weight - 176 lb
    Goal - 155 lb


    Going to be aggressive and count carbs!!!!!

      Yet another tall girl here! 5' 10" and not where I was or where I want to be. Damn hormonal issues anyway.
      Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

        Welcome Jayner. I think that we all know where you have been, and its great that you have found this new lifestyle. I am the shorty of the bunch at 5'7", (well I was 5'8" but I think that I have shrunk!), however two daughters are about 5'10/11 ish, a niece coming in at 6' etcc....
        anyway welcome, and good luck on your journey.

          Counting the macros has been the best control to my intake and results. I found it also to be precise when changes in diet reflected changes in physical reactions.
          Wish you strength on your journey, especially the hormonal jungle, I sometimes wish I could just yank them out like a wall socket plug.

            I am definitely sitting under 50 g of carbs today. And feeling pretty good. The only down side was how little water I consumed. Literally didn't stop seeing patients allllll day. Aieeeee!

                      So I weighed myself this morning and I was 177 lb which is a bit of a gain. But I feel good. So I am going to ignore that number... it has only been three days and your weight does fluctuate 5 lb in a given day anyways.

                      I guess that is officially my SW (hopefully it doesn't go any higher...)

                              So today I am exhausted. I know I cannot put this as a cause-and-effect... but I wonder if it could be a result of all that sugar I consumed yesterday? (In the form of apples and two cookies). Thankfully this is a Saturday and I don't have to work...

                              But I am reading the Primal Blueprint and a lot of what I am reading is ringing true about over-training and adrenal fatigue. I think I am the cortisol queen.... and the proof is in the spare tire around my waist. Even prior to my hormonal difficulties when I was 20 lb lighter and you could see the striations in my shoulders and quads, I had a little pooch... a pooch I will call the "cortisol pooch".

                              The old me is saying it is a Saturday and I should take advantage of the day and go for a run or at least do some primal sprints... but the new me is saying I should listen to my body and just sit and relax.

                              I am going on a hike tomorrow anyways!
