    Good luck with it. I do weigh daily, but right now its not stressing me as yet, if it does, ill get my husband to hide them.

      I don't want to be skinny, I want to have muscle (as much as I can) will start lifting heavy again/or go back to CrossFit, but not yet.
      Once I am under 165, I will start looking at getting my tummy fixed (then boobs once I am at my happy weight). I will know it once I am there
      Just a note that most people don't realize - if you lift heavy now, you'll burn your fat faster. Your body right now will burn less fat than your body after 2 weeks of heavy lifting. It doesn't have to be crazy lifting - just some basic body weight stuff to help improve your musculature. Even the smallest increase in muscle mass will help your body burn extra fat.

      • I have that not so tasty tinny taste in the back of my mouth. It makes me want to eat something to get rid of it... will this taste last forever??

        I wish I'd grabbed my ketosticks this morning. Would love to see what color I'd pee today.

          Yep I know, but I am mostly a big chicken right now.
          Being so heavy, im afraid of competing for the squat rack/bench with the men, I am worried about being made fun of (yeah yeah I know, stupid).
          I know what to do, I used to do my own thing with basic squats, deadlifts, bench press and press. Then I did CrossFit for ages. I will go back to CrossFit, but I have in my head I have to lose the weight I gained in the last 8 months before I do (nearly 20 kg), I know it sounds crazy.

          For now ill stick to my walking at least 5 km everyday, and doing push ups, dips etc at home.

          • I have not had that taste even though im def in ketosis, but it doesn't appear it lasts forever from what i've read around the place.

            • So I find out that last nights eatapalooza for me was due to raised cortisol due to lack of sleep. Yep, gotta love how stress does that to a person.

              In regards to what I eat, I find that right now I am eating between 1600-1400 cals/day. I have no clue about BMR, I am not a math whiz or anything of the sort. Hell, I had to have Paula figure out what my macros should be at so I could do this. You tell me weight in kilos and my brain goes "squirrel"

              • My calories are tending a bit high right now, but I feel like I need an adjustment period to get this all figured out.

                Ayla, regarding your question. No I didn't feel like I had overeaten, but I am not sure what I was looking for. So can't say if I "needed" the protein or not. I sort of feel like I had too much protein at lunch and that set the rest of the day off.

                I just got home from work, and was hungry. So I made a concoction of Almond Butter, Coconut Oil, coconut, almonds, and stevia, melt and mix. Ate about 2 tablespoons full and now I am stuffed. I put it into MFP as best I could and I am a bit surprised that the stats on it weren't higher given how I feel. Weird. I am just going to have a bit of spinach salad tonight for dinner. Should end up within my macro goals pretty easily.

                  • B: 1 c coffew w/ cream... no CO today.

                    D: grilled up a big ol' burger with some sharp cheddar on top, and a salad on the side of thin sliced romaine, a little shredded carrot and tomato, with garlic sour cream dressing thinned with HWC.

                    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

                    • OMG Cori that burger sounds delicious!
                      I have had 2 BP coffee, and some bone broth. Not feeling any hunger at all.
                      Hope I can still hang out here, even though am half fasting, as well as eat moar fat.

                        Hi Calee, I did the entire weight loss on Primal. Of course this is the third time I've taken off near that amount of weight (over 100 lbs.). The first time was a gastric bypass, the second was "eating when you're hungry, stopping when you're full". This time Primal. I feel so good and am seldom hungry that I will continue with the way I'm going the rest of my life. I think I just need to level off weightwise, somewhere. Right now I'm floating between a size 6 and 8. That makes buying clothes very inconvenient. By the way, it's embarrassing that during my adult years I've gained and lost 100+ lbs 3 times. Talk about emotional eating! The potato diet didn't bother my arthritis, it's Osteo, the wear and tear kind. I plan to stop for awhile at 125, see how I feel and look and drop another 5 if necessary. If there's any other 5'4" women out there that have a weight number opinion, I'd like to hear it. It's been so many years since I've seen what a "normal-sized me" looks like I'm not able to recognize it.
                        Rosemary, what a journey you've had! Your body must be delighted with being Primal. I'm very happy with wearing size 8. At 144 I can wear size 6 or 8 skinny jeans. The 6 are snug at 149 so I'm determined to get down. Last year after shedding a lot of weight, I bought all new jeans in 6 and 8. It's great motivation.

                        I'd love to read how you ate primarily while shedding 100 pounds. What were your favorite meals etc. did you watch carbs? Eat high fat?

                        I think that age also might contribute to goal weight.

                          209.5.....204 Weight

                          38.5.....38.25 Waist

                          I know that the weight is mostly bloat and that's completely fine with me! I haven't been counting my macros this week, I needed time to just concentrate on not eating sugar and grains again. Today I start counting. I think I've been over on my protein, so we shall see!

                          WOW! Awesome week. Congratulations!

                            • A success for today - I made a batch of chocolate no-bakes for my hard workin' husband. Normally I will hook into those like a crazy bitch because there's no flour. Today, I had a sniff, said "wow...those smell good" and that was that. No handfuls of no-bakes were consumed. Not even one. Not even the little blobs leftover on the baking paper.

                              On a related note, oatmeal seems to give me digestive grief (so I may well be undiagnosed celiac) and even peanut butter doesn't get past my nose any more. I had problems with tuna in the past too, and lately I can't even smell it without being grossed out. Weird how it works.
