      Hiya Glad that you got through your carb cravings and that your pain is better. Hope that the car repairs aren't TOO painful!
      I am lucky (if you can call it that) that by the time I decided to do this, my carb binges had me feeling so badly that I don't really crave them much now. Well, I did a bit today while in CostCo and Target because I could smell all of the carbalicious poison that they had cooking (or probably just warming) at the snack bars. I was hungry too. But happily, I had stuff at home to whip up quickly (half leftover and half quick saute) so my tummy is happy and I'm enjoying a nice, tall glass of red wine Hope that your carb cravings go AWAY soon!

        Thanks Amanda! But the car repairs will be $1000-$1500. That will be a big chunk of money for my family. That could buy a cow, butchered and all!
        I'm glad you are done with the carb binges that made you sick. Sounds like you did quite well, and I do think you earned your celebratory glass of wine.

          I watched these videos. They are great. I don't know who the speaker is, but he is pretty good.
          I hope these links work. I'm copying and pasting on my iPad.

          Ok, the first link shows just the name YouTube when I view my post. It is actually for Part 1.

            So today was a long day. I jumped on the scale in the morning because I felt thinner. Same weight. Same measurements, too. But I woke up in ketosis. I had a shot of vodka last night, in some sparkling water. Not sure if that impacted my brain or my body. Ha.

            I ate high fat, low carb today. Until the pig wings. This is pork tenderloin cooked same as chicken wings. So I think they are breaded, then fried. I did look up buffalo wing sauce and it could be low carb. Depends on the recipe and if they add sugar or not. This makes me wonder if bar wings are breaded before they are fried. Thursday is wing night at the local bar. 2 pints and all you can eat wings for $14.99. I could get water or diet soda and wings... If they are not breaded.

            I told a friend at work about MDA. I talk about it with other women whom I know will understand my obsession. I am trying to get my sister to start eating Primal so I can get good recipes from her. She is clever.

            Nothing else memorable, except I did have a great lunch. I grated 3 zucchini and 2 yellow summer squash and sautéed them in butter. In a separate pan, I cooked 6 sausage and a half pound shrimp. I combined it all at the end and separated into 4 meals. One was lunch. It was very good.

            I am tired or I would post more. I don't even have the energy to catch up on others posts or journals. Sorry all, just wiped.

              LOL. Because of that comment, I was listing in my head all the ways that Ke$ha is primal the last time I played her music while walking - she doesn't wash her hair, she pees wherever the urge strikes, et cetera. (Ugh.)

                She is Primal, for sure! Some of her songs I absolutely LOVE (Take It Off, for example), and others are just, well, icky. And I never watch the videos because that can ruin the song for me. I discovered that with LMFAO Sexy and I Know It. That was NOT what I was imagining when they sang "jiggle, jiggle, jiggle"- I was so pleasantly oblivious.

                  I wonder the same with bar chicken wings. I assume they bread them, but maybe not. I hope they don't cause I LOVE them!
                  I def recommend avoiding diet soda. You may already know that, but if not, it is touted as being worse for your health than regular soda. I don't know if this would be an acceptable compromise for you, but I do love some sparkling water with fresh lemon squeezed in it.

                    Hey Amanda, I have some exciting news! I checked Wikipedia and buffalo wings are generally NOT breaded! Probably worth checking when we do order them tho. We can claim a gluten allergy or something so they will tell us the truth. As for diet soda, yeah it can be bad but I think, for myself, once in a while is ok. Better than beer. I wish I liked the seltzer water, but maybe it will grow on me.

                    Having a glass of red wine, not bad. A Chilean Pinot Noir. Thank goodness red wine is ok!

                        I usually go the club soda and lemon route, and it does grow on you. As do the funny looks people give you when you tell them what you're drinking

                        I'm quite sure that any kind of wings are not fried in good oils, so keep that in mind. But if it's an occasional thing, I'm sure it's not a problem.

                        Honestly, feeling thinner (or fitter/stronger/etc) is probably just as important as BEING that way. I bet you held yourself differently since you felt better, right? I know I do.

                          I have decided I am going to phase out the diet soda. To wean myself off artificial sweeteners, with the exception of Stevia (I need to keep something). And I agree on the oil the wings are fried in! Ugh. Forgot about that- thanks for the reminder.

                          And YES to the feeling better! It is possibly more important than anything else. Because it all starts in our heads, right?

                            Accounting time for me!
                            I did weigh and measure on Saturday, and will post those here.

                            Weight: 161 (no change)
                            Waist: 32 1/2
                            Hips: 39
                            Thigh: 23 3/4
                            Calf: 14 1/2
                            Upper arm: 12 1/4

                            So, no change in weight but definite shrinkage with inches. It is shocking to me to watch those numbers creep down. I am going through a "how is this working?" "does this really work?" phase, even though, it IS working for me.

                            But today I went to the gym for the first time in forever, and did Pilates/core stuff- which I think counts as moving slowly and steadily, and some lifting too. It was tough. It was also tough to look in the mirror and see how much tone I had lost from not working out for so long. One step at a time, right?

                            Anyway, someone pointed out to me that even maintaining weight is great because it is not gaining. I see what they are trying to say, but it's still hard to get my head around it to let myself be motivated by that.

                            I finally got the book and have started reading it. It's been interesting. I am finding it a harder read than I thought it would be, I'm just having trouble staying focused on it. It's like I have ADD. Sometimes I think I do. I just can't focus on things like I used to.

                              I just had my first dinner out while attempting primal. I had a salad, plain. Philly cheese steak, no bread. Sweet potatoe fries. Water to drink. So, the worst thing was the fries. I came away feeling unsatisfied, however. I think I am done with fries. Sure, they tasted good, but it's not worth the "still hungry" feeling I have. That is the feeling that would always lead to me overeating. It's amazing how much I can eat, when on SAD, without getting full. I am finding I like feeling satisfied better than I like the taste of certain carb foods.

                              I am curious to see what the scale will have to say about tonight's dinner!

                                Don't forget, the title of your journal is turning fat to muscle, not chasing a smaller number on the scale. If you are losing inches but not pounds, then you are getting denser. Muscle is denser than fat, right?

                                Funny how your food preferences change, isn't it? Helpful, too
