      Well done congrats
      Jacmac: Fantastic! Now isn't that the most beautiful motivation you can have? I'm getting on the scale in a few hours at work and hoping I've got a bit of a swoosh, too. I feel like, but we'll see what happens. Cheers, louisa

      • Day 24 here!!! Feeling great and sleeping like a log! My internal clock has me getting about 8-9 hrs of sleep each night. I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go. My snacking is to a major minimum and I've been eating smaller meals more frequently. I'm running into a digestive issue still! It's been going on since mid July. Burning and stomach aches after I eat anything at all. I'm thinking a doctor may be in my future. Well see. I'd rather not so I've been drinking kombucha daily, eating 1 serving of fruit and no nuts at all. I have no more bloating, but am Still struggling w belly aches. So odd

        I'm moving into a new house this wk! My husband is deployed, so my dad is helping me. All of our belonging are coming out of storage! They've been there since DECEMBER 15! The belly issues may or may not be from stress

        • I had a packet of stevia yesterday, because I decided to try coconut milk with cocoa powder. It was disgusting without a sweetener, so I added a bit instead of tossing the works out. Should have tossed it out, it still tasted bad. Good thing it was my last packet of stevia.

          Other than that, I finally broke down and went on the scale on Sat and Sun. No weight loss, small gaining trend, wearing fat pants this morning. I feel down because that means that I have no recourse but starting on another Ultimate Diet phase in October. I will try broth fasts, see if I can hold them for a couple of days a week, but I don't hold my breath. I should have lost weight off before doing the clean high fat primal. Or, maybe this refeed will make the Ultimate D easier and I would lose nicely once I am doing it. Who knows. My body is crazy.

          • Day 10 and feeling wonderful! My right hand, which was previously covered in eczema, is almost totally healed! I went for a short run yesterday and was amazed by how energetic I felt, even considering my relatively low carb intake. And miracle of miracles, my husband wants to eat Primal! He has fairly advanced arthritis in his right knee and had microfracture surgery last winter. He plays competitive over-50 adult soccer and his knee is always keeping him from running as hard as he wants. I told him that eating an anti-inflammatory diet could help. Today is his first day with no grains!!! It's his ice cream habit that will be tough to break. That and diet coke.

            Tonight I am roasting a chicken, making roasted root veggies and broccoli as sides. It's cool and fallish so that sounds perfect!

              • Day 9 over here for me, lunch today was leftover meatballs and spaghetti squash and dinner is going to be BAS with smoked macherel. I'm going to make an attempt at proper sprints tonight i.e running at full pelt on foot ones . I usually attempt sprints on my bike or in the pool, but I'm feeling brave today. I had rather a random episode of feeling exceedingly warm (as in body temperature high type of warm) for about an hour mid-morning, it was actually making me sweat slightly. I have no idea what caused it, it was rater strange .

                The slow cooker coconut ginger pork last night was awesome - the prok was really tender and the broth was all creamy and lighlty spiced. Definitely something I would make again.

                • I think this is probably Day 13 for me, still doing well. Went off course for dinner this weekend, no water in the house with plumbing repair and we had house guests show up the same day. Ended up with Pizza for dinner, but right back on the plan this morning, hoping I can stick out the rest of the month with no more surprises

                  • thanks everyone. it is, i believe, day 13 for me as well. i'm really bad at keeping track of this.

                    my mom was making fun of me for my pants falling off so i caved in and went to the store to buy some new ones. i am now in a pair 2 sizes smaller that were on sale for 20 bucks. they are a little tight but i feel i will shrink into them soon enough.

                    yay! good luck this week y'all!
                    yay!

                    • Woot, Woot --- 1 more pound lost Monday morning. So, in total, that's 13 lbs. I have another 9 to go! I hope I can lose it by end of September or end of October. I'm lov'in this day. Back to the water fountain as I'm thirsty all the time.

                      Hope everyone is having a great day!/Louisa

                      • Day 15 for me - going well, so far. Haven't had a chance to catch up on the thread since I last checked in on Day 12 (I think). The sheppard/cottage pie we made is amaaaaazing. So yummy. Also loving the guacamole-chicken-butter lettuce wraps. I will have my first bowl of the chicken curry for lunch in about 10 minutes. It is somewhat of a combo green/yellow curry, as I didn't get enough green curry paste. Flavor is good, though.

                        I've been getting after dinner cravings and needing a small fat snack and haven't had anything in the house that isn't too protein-heavy (working on being ketogenic). So, I just ordered coconut butter - yay!!! A tablespoon of that will kill my hunger/cravings in the evenings without overdoing the protein. Also, we picked up a 3-pack of Wholly Guacamole (I think 5 avocados/pack) at Costco for additional fat go-to snack and meal additions. The ingredients rock: avocados, jalapeno, white vinegar, onion, garlic. Vacuum sealed, so no preservatives

                        Congratulations to everyone learning and growing (and shrinking!) on this journey! I love this thread

                              Wonderful that your hubby is on side -- great to be a team in the arena of good health. Roasted chicken sounds yummy at this time of year!

                              • Hi, day 18 for me. I did a workout this morning and feel really good. I am such a night owl and would like to shift myself into getting up earlier to workout first. If I don't, it often does not get done. the only reason I got my workout in this morning was because I had the day off! I had a stretch of time when I was doing great, getting up and working out every morning but then I got off track. I'm going to get to bed a little earlier tonight so I can get enough sleep and get up earlier tomorrow.

                                I made a bunch of food yesterday and today. I made a really good breakfast casserole. It had turkey sausage (made my own with ground turkey and some spices), sweet potato, kale, onion, garlic, roasted cauliflower and eggs. I want to try to make curry this week. I love curry but have never made it.

                                Well, I made it to Whole5 before I crashed and burned! There has been a lot of work-related stress and unhappiness, and I'm resigning from my job tomorrow and starting a new one on the 24th. I've had a history of stress eating leading to binging when I'm under a lot of pressure. Good news is that I haven't done any of that- I've been gnawing on lettuce leaves and cherry tomatoes from my plants outside, or going for walks, where 6 months ago I would have eaten way too much of something starchy and then hated myself.

                                So in the interest of mental health, I'm sticking to most of the goals I laid out earlier and will be back again to try Whole30 in October! By then I'll be mostly settled in at the new job and hopefully feeling much better about everything.

                                -ZERO grains
                                -Close to or under 50 carbs per day
                                -Cut out dairy until I'm only eating homemade Greek yogurt
                                -One piece/serving of fruit per day
                                -Learn to get a good balance of omega 3 / omega 6
                                -Drink only water, coconut water, tea, and coffee
                                -Lift heavy things 2-3 times per week
                                -Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night
                                sounds like a good plan! Still very healthy choices.

                                Calories: 709
                                Fat: 61gm - 70%
                                Protein 37.2gm - 22%

                                weight: 149.4 (-5lbs) ---

                                Couple of observations for today:

                                1. Started with bullet coffee (2 coffees with 1/2 cup coconut milk)

                                2. Nothing else to dinner: Steak, Caesar Salad, Zuccheni, Mushrooms sauteed in butter, 3 tsp's high fat greek yogourt & 6 raspberries + 1 slice of french brie, double cheese.

                                3. Although the ratios are in line for ketosis (70% fat, Protein 22% and 9% carbs), I feel that I'm still not consuming enough carbs. I do need to increase both fat and protein. I think I'll try to have an extra few hardboiled eggs tomorrow and a bit more high fat cheese.

                                4. I have no cravings; I have an abundance of energy; keto stix indicate ketosis.

                                I'll be measuring myself tomorrow and we'll see where the scales are. Hoping to still be around 149 or just below. Would be nice to stay in the 140's versus bouncing into the low 150's.

                                Off for my 10km nightly walk. Have a great evening, everyone!
                                You're an inspiration, Louisa!
