    I like this. A year looking forward looks so long; we think we have plenty of time. But looking backwards, it goes by so quickly. Just think if we had been doing what we meant to.

      I'm allowing myself some sugar during the holidays. Its either that or lots of alcohol. Once we get past Thanksgiving, I pretty much begin to go into full fledged hatred of this time of year.

        I know what you mean. For me once I start on those sugar cookies it is too late. It starts a storm of sugar cravings for me and I find myself out of control!

          I don't get out of control. I'm pretty good at controlling it. I just don't like the season once we get past Thanksgiving. It's more of a personal thing.

            Girl, you are near your HS weight, allowances are to be made!!!

            I will in the future, but this year all excuses are done. I have to soldier through this 6 months and not use food for pleasure and celebration. Not eating sugar, hell, not eating much but meat, makes me realize I had a problem. I was binging on candy or ice cream nightly. I got to get my mind right.

            The holidays, meh, I'm just not a Christmas or winter person. Turkey day is cool, Christmas is yuck. We are always broke, it brings up stress about all kinds fo stuff and I end up tired, fatter, and depressed all through January and maybe February. This year we are only doing gifts for the under 18 kids in our family and just enjoying the visiting. I don't even decorate at the house, I'm such a grinch. lol

            Food yesterday was 2 string cheese for brkfst (bad choice, not hungry), a cheeseburger (no bun of course) with bacon and a fried egg with steamed veggies for lunch, and pulled pork with franks red hot sauce and a salad and some cups of coffee with cream.

            This morning I has something amazing, a cup of butter toffee coffee with a pat of butter, stevia, and cream. OMG sinful!

              No, no where near my high school weight. I'm close to the build I had in high school. My body composition is just way different now then it was 18 yrs ago. I'm still probably about 50 lbs heavier than I was in high school.

                  Why are you eating rice three times a week and wheat....that with other cheats probably takes you well over 80/20,
                  No more wheat and ditch the rice both are empty sugar calories that unless you are VERY active and/or running a marathon you do not need.
                  Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                    Kymma,

                    I'll have to try your coffee fixin's.

                    Have you been finding you have no appetite? I only ate an omelet yesterday (see my journal about getting sick), but I didn't eat anything else all day. I did have a cup of tea with my beloved FVC (french vanilla creamer) before bed, but I did not have any desire to eat.

                    I find myself not eating in the morning . I don't get hungry until after noon most days now. If I eat too late, then I don't want to eat at night.

                    I truly believe our bodies will tell us what we need if we will only listen. If I'm not hungry I don't think I should eat, but then I am worried about getting out of control when hunger strikes. On the other hand I have been know to devour a pound of good steak at one sitting. I'm perplexed.

                      Yeah apparently you didn't catch the part where I gave those up a couple months ago. I was in denial.

                        No hunger to speak of and FULL after I eat. Not getting in your business, but I think breakfast is the most important. I eat that no matter if I want it or not. I find that after doing that I do want it and then I don't have hunger and can make healthier food choices.

                          More admitting, more limiting is in order. I just need to cut out the dairy except for butter. And after I finish this stevia, I am cutting it too. Reasons: I seek out sweets and find ways to create "safe sweets". This is dependence. I want to be free of it. It has been a great crutch to help me the first few weeks of a huge life, woe, and mind shift. My mind is shifting away from need and towards developing a life free of the layers of food addiction and issues that I have piled on since a young age.

                          I am realizing that this 6 month commitment is a like an incredible hike I am doing to gain clarity and to have an experience outside of my norm. Something that shakes up the status quo. I am super excited about it in a way I wasn't when I started. Bring it!

                          I do wonder if I get preggo during this 6 months what I'll do differently. BUT I will cross it when it happens. Maude knows that when weight is coming off, and you aren't feeling bad from binging, that baby making is a lot more fun.

                            Good idea Kymma. I used to drink about a cup of hvy cream a day just putting it in coffee. I cut it out a little over a month ago and haven't really missed it (beyond the first few days of getting used to black coffee). I think you will notice the same thing.

                              Hey Kymma,

                              I didn't know we were so similar in stats. I am 5'10" and 236 as of this morning. My last year looks exactly like yours too. On my one year Primalversary, 9/24/11, I hit 211 and have not seen it since. I too am cutting out dairy and all sweeteners. When I drop AS, yes even stevia, my body reacts very positively. I too have adrenal fatigue and am pre diabetic.

                              I'm with you sister and behind you all the way
                              Primal since 9/24/2010

                                Considering the fact that I wore a size 14 misses in high school, I guess that's a good thing. At least it isn't what I used to be.
