  • I would not force a workout if you are feeling sick, unless you think it will lift your mood (it would not necessarily help mine if I were in the same position). For me I need to get out, I would take the DD out somewhere. If a park is not feasible maybe the mall-not to buy but just to walk around. Something for just you and your daughter. Nothing to be done about being dissed, unless you think you can talk them out of it (if it is worth your energy). Go someplace where other mothers take their daughters (a play gym or similar) and meet some new friends for you and your daughter.

    I still eat veggies, but make sure I stay within my macro guidelines with them. there are recommended supplements you might consider if you think you are deficient. Dr. Attia has a list of the ones he takes on his website (link on the first page of this thread I believe).

    good luck we are rooting for you.

    • Boy - we are all over the place with loses and gains - and being on fire and just not quite getting there! I love this group and the support and encouragement everyone offers. I never thought I'd be a part of an on-line community - but I do enjoy this one.

      Here's my rah-rah for the day........... after a 14 day dry spell I WALKED 2.2 MILES this morning!!!! I'm back in the game peeps!
      1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
      2. Eat to heal
      3. Move to live
      4. Embrace today
      5. Live with intention
      6. Respect my body
      7. Cultivate joy
      8. Find my passion
      9. Meditate on peace in my soul

      • I wanna go take a walk... feeling REALLY REALLY BLOATED right now... like 8 months pregnant bloated. Blech!

        I completed 5 health assessements for the insurance companies. $100 bonus from my husband's, and $50 bonus from mine for the other 4 assessments. I had to go through some "coaching" - weight loss was one of them. lol Cracks me up. No WAY am I going back to eating grains after how I feel today... Oy...

            Yes, we have a little gym with two treadmills, an elliptical, a recumbant bike, an upright bike and numerous free weights and a weight bench. It's great. There is even a TV/DVD player. There are no windows, but if I go in early in the morning I don't mind that part.

            We also just got a juicer for the kitchen, though I have not tried it.

            You and me both!! I always test well though. I AM in menopause (confirmed last year by my dotor), so I may be able to get more detailed testing this year. I have lots of syptoms of thyroid and/or adrenal fatigue, but those sypmtoms are so similar to other things, it's hard to know for sure.

              • Well done to all the Feb losers. I have just checked back & found I have lost 10lb in my first month on EMF. I am happy with that as I have been trying out several different ideas & am now set on course with my 12 week n=1. Haven't measured yet as its TOM but my weight is the lowest its been for 20 years.

                Onwards & downwards....

                UPDATE: Have now measured & lost 3 inches (mostly off my waist & stomach) so I'm very pleased.

                          This is the end of my first month on primal. Mostly I have stuck to EMF. I cannot believe it has gone this quickly. This is the first time in my life, changing my diet that I had no "bad days." Anyway, I have lost 18 pounds this month. I was afraid to weigh in this morning as I had some sushi yesterday, and I was just SURE the rice would make me put on water weight, well I guess it didn't.
                          Amazing! That's real inspiration.

                          • Gigi - it sounds to me like your body is in a bit of a fog due to lots of different changes/approaches. Fwiw, I'd pick one system, say EMF/NK, and just sit with it for at least 12 weeks, until everything settles down. I certainly wouldn't be stressing it with really really low calories. Or just sit primal for 12 weeks, being a bit more liberal with quantities, until you find an even keel. I don't think you're helping yourself with all this chopping and changing.

                            Also, fwiw, when it comes to handling tempatation, I've found it really helpful to change the way I approach the issue. Instead of saying Oh, I can't have that because of xyz, I say, I don't eat that. Sugar, alcohol, pasta, ice cream, pizza - whatever the siren food is -- not I can't, because that implies I'm not in control and I'm being deprived. Just I don't. Because that puts me in the driver's seat, it's my choice, and I keep my power.

                            • I like the "I don't" as opposed to" I can't". I also prefer to focus on what I can eat. Which with this plan is pretty freakin extravagant and rich and yummy.
