      Can you have a relaxing bath or something to chill?
      I am feeling much the same today

      Thanks Gwamma, appreciate the thoughts. Its days like today I wish I had a real mother ya know, I have never had any one there for me growing up, and now even at 31 years old I wish I had that. No good trying to talk to mine, no way.
      I think a lot of it has to do with missing 2 hours of sleep last night due to the husband wanting to watch wrastling since the Rock was on. I keep thinking the loss of sleep messed me up today and is making me feel way more emotional than usual.

      My mom was not the greatest either. I'm one of those that don't discuss feelings with anyone. I just bitch and moan.

      • mine was there, but not there ya know, then ran off when I was 8, with 3 other siblings, the youngest 2, were 1 and 2 years old. Someone else raised me, but not very well, she was also not there for me. Then my mother came back into my life at 18, and has been nothing but shit ever since, and its as long as ive been overweight (but I think other things came into that too).
        Anyway, there is my crappy story LOL

          Lack of sleep sucks!
          It was way to hot to sleep last night, even with air con, so that prob has added to my mood as well.

          • Mine followed us over to Aus, no idea why, but now she is moving to another state, rather than living just down the road, and I think it will help me to get on with my life. We hardly speak as it is now, even though she lives 30 mins away. She never goes out of her way to visit, or call. It was always me.

              You know sometimes our emotions don't have anything to do with food or what we are eating, and so food is not going to fix them. (not trying to be a smart ass here, I just know that when I am following a new eating plan I blame everything on what I am eating or what I am not allowed to eat).
              I'm not blaming it on what I'm not or what I am eating. I used to be such a severe emotional eater that I would eat so much that I would puke to mask whatever was bothering. I did this a lot after my mom passed and do it periodically still. Well, haven't really since starting EMF.

              • Thinking I'm going to have a low carb hot chocolate with my meal and deal with it. It won't kill me on carbs and that is my only concern.

                • hope it helps you feel better

                  • It's about 7:45 PM so yes. I'm thinking of going to bed within the hour.

                    I ate a lot but don't feel stuffed. Had my hot chocolate, heavy whipping cream, almond milk, 99% cacao with sugar free vanilla syrup and I think 8-10 pieces of bacon and 2 eggs with sour cream and hot sauce. My gut feels better, but I still feel the urge to cry.

                    • I didn't see the lack of sleep thing before I made my comment. sleep deprivation even a little, is a horrible thing. It is amazing the havoc it can reek on the body.

                      • I wish I had some way to make you feel better

                        Do you know what specifically stopped your emotional eating? I haven't done it for months, but can't pinpoint the exact thing that stopped it, I am just so relieved, as when I was doing it, I thought I could never stop.

                          The EMF helps with the emotional eating. I used to get a high from it. Then I would have to purge after I ate cause I would just eat too much. This was how I dealt with my mom's death in 2007. I typically have 2-3 days a year where I do this now,

                            I am also trying to realign in the protein department. It is hard to get the macros right, but once I learned that protein can be converted to glucose, it made sense not to eat too much.

                            I am glad I am in an experimentation and acceptance phase, it makes all of this finagling of macros and getting into the zone so much less stressful. What I love about LC and keto is my appetite doesn't rule me, so I can work on the macro balance without being in a funk, like I was for years with calorie counting, hungry, fat, and frustrated.
                            Hi, stranger! So glad to see you here and that you are doing so well! (I so owe you an email!!) I know the best I've felt was while in a good, deep ketosis but I goofed and hit a wall because I REALLY needed to increase my fat but didn't know it. Glad to finally be back after taking a ridiculously long, drawn out route to get here. Had to address a few other things on the way, though, so I think it was the one I needed to take.

                            I'm trying to find some really good info to share that I'd read in Primal Body, Primal Mind (Nora Gedgaudas). She's a big advocate of low carb, high fat and moderate protein and has great statistics to back up her recommendations. It's an awesome source of info but I'm double checking my facts before sharing because it's been a while since I read it. Also reading up on Attia's work, as well as Volek and Phinney. I'm not screwing up again, dammit! I thought she says somewhere in her book that more than 25g of protein in one sitting was enough to knock one out of ketosis, but now I can't find that exact quote. I did find where she says that's enough to stimulate mTOR, but I'm looking for something she says about gluconeogenesis. Can anyone help me with this one? (Paleobird? ) I've been sticking to around 25g per meal (and adding more fat) and have been feeling awesome, but I'd love to see some hard facts.
                            Life is not a matter of having good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.

I've Googled it and got a spread of 119 - 140. Do you have any idea? Also, I've been floating around 130 lbs for about a month now. I had great success with the potatoes only diet awhile back. In 7 days I lost 8.2 lbs. This last 5 lbs I think I should lose just moves up and down a quarter lb. each way. Thinking about raising my fat percentage.
                                Hi Rosemary,
                                You have done great getting the weight off! Have you done it all with Primal eating? Congratulations!

                                I don't know what the "right" weight is. I am going by how I feel. Not long ago my range was 141-144 and I felt great. I put on some pounds this fall that I'm really uncomfortable with. If I can get down to 140 I will be happy. Anything else will be a huge cause for celebration!

                                I didn't have much success with the taters because the white potatoes give me an RA response. I can do a couple days but thn have to back off. I do love feeling so satisfied, but not the pain in my hands.
