          so i decided against the whole 30, not in an effort to get out of something but due to some travel plans i have decided that staying just normal paleo/primal will be a bit easier, so i will do a whole 30 sometime this summer.

          I have noticed some things lately in regards to diet.
          First: in the last 5 weeks or so i have eaten off this plan three times. About 5 weeks ago I had gotten to be a bit stagnant and made a conscious decision and I ate a pizza with some friends. I gained 3-4 pounds as is standard, by the next friday I was back to where i was weight wise, and by the end of the weekend i had lost a new 3 pounds. This happened again over spring break. Sunday dinner for easter included some non paleo snacks and brown sugar apple glaze on pork and rice with brocolli side dish. I gained 2.5 pounds and by the next weekend it was gone and i had lost 4 new pounds. Became stagnant then this last weekened ate pizza and suddenly this week i have lost a new pound already and it is only thursday.

          I guess the point of this rambling is just to document a trend for myself so in the future i can remember this is the way things were.

          I am familiar with carb refeeding but this is certainly not what i do, i have straight up eated bad for a portion of a day and within a week have been rewarded with new weight loss after a stagnant period. I understand it is easy to rationalize this, saying it works because your body needs a shock blah blah but i dont want to rationalize it because i dont want to convince myself to cheat.

          Anyway, 267 this morning. 66 pounds down

                    i was 265 this morning and a bit depressed. no weight loss in a week in fact about a pound gain. hopefully itll kickstart again but i have a rough week coming up. my birthday is wednesday and we are jgoing out on saturday to celebrate. both those days are likely to be pretty non primal and will mess me up for a week or so. shit happens. cheers

                          That's an impressive difference. I bet you feel a lot more comfortable in your clothes now.

                            hey thanks. its been a journey and i still have quite a bit to go but nice to see a difference in my pictures.

                            i have hit a bit of a plateau lately, i went up around my birthday but have been back to 264 for four days or so and im kind of gettin sick of this weight. I have only lost 2 pounds in the last 30 days.

                              So I decided I wanted to put a more thorough update on here so that maybe in the future i will recall where i am and how i am feeling when i look back.

                              In short, nearly 70 pounds down sounds like a great achievement but i have been feeling pretty defeated lately. I like what i eat for the most part but yet i can help but feel stuck in something that i have to do for the rest of my life that i dont love. dont get me wrong i ated being morbidly obese, but i have lost a lot of weight and still have so much more to go and it really isnt happening. I ate very poorly for a couple days early in the month and of course the scale jumped up 12-15 pounds. I know why this happens and knew i would be back down to where i was within a week and sure enough i was. But i cant get past 263.8 and in face i was 265 this morning.

                              Part of me knows why i havent been losing weight but part of me is still perplexed.

                              I havent been sleeping well, money problems have been stacking up and i seem to have a racing mind at night. I have been going to bed at a reasonable enough time to ensure 8-9 hours of sleep and yet toss and turn for two hours of that and doze for the rest. THis i am sure has a fair amount to do with my plateau. I have also been indulging in mixed nuts more than normal, i dont eat much of the peanuts i pick them out but i probably should cut this out (it is often my breakfast) my water intake has been down and my activity level has leveled off and maybe faltered a little bit.

                              That beings said, at 263 pounds, eating basically 98% paleo i still feel like i should be losing a couple pounds a week. I am extrememly disappointed as i had set a goal of 250 by summer break (june 25) and when i was 264 april 25 or so that was perfeclty within my grasp at a normal 7-10 pound a month clip. Now i am just praying i can get in the 250s in the next few weeks.

                              People often talk about plateau busters and i guess i may try something. I may start IF once a week, drink a ton of water, get more sleep and all that.

                              In short, i dont hate my lifestyle right now, but despite how huggy feely many of you are about Primal/paleo and how happy it has made me, i am losing patience and just want it to continue to work. Diet is a four letter word people hate around here, but every human has a "diet" and my daily "diet" isnt doing what i want it to and it just has me pretty defeated right now.

                              I hope i update in a week at 260 or so and feel better, but my optimism is waneing

                                You may need to give them up if you can't control it. Have you tried weighing out a serving?

                                I try to avoid the word "diet" by itself altogether. I use "way of eating" to describe long-term goals and "weight loss diet" for what most people do to try to lose weight by "dieting".
