Banks questioned where Brad and I got a $5,000 down payment on our mortgage when we bought our first house. We had to get all kinds of documentation to show that the cash we were putting down was legitimate "legal" cash and not earned through drug deals and stuff like that. We borrowed it from FIL's retirement fund, so it was easy to document, but still a pain in the arse.
I suppose they have legal reasons to document things like that. The IRS has to have their fingers into everything taxable.
My second day of eating only meat. I had a bit of a challenge at lunch - mom and I met sister for lunch and I couldn't find anything on the menu that was just plain meat. So when I asked the waitress she said they could just make me a plain chicken breast with salt and pepper. :) They charged only $3.50 for it and it was pretty tasty. I had to laugh at my sister --- she was asking about what I'm doing and said, "so what do you eat for breakfast? Bacon?" ........... I said, "usually eggs" ............ her response was "but I thought you said you were only meat - eggs aren't meat" (faceplant!!!) I said "they're pre-meat". She said, "so, you're eating only protein?" ................... DUH! My sister is a brunette - but she's typical blonde by nature!
a small chicken breast
a good sized beef patty
dinner will be a ground pork patty. I'm making a beef curry for hubby.
My goodness I pee'd a LOT this morning! Is that sign of being in ketosis? Must be related to my diet of only protein cuz it was pretty unusual.
I forgot to send the scales with hubby - but after giving it some thought I think they would get broken in his truck anyway. I'll have to find a better option. I didn't step on them this morning :)
I slept really good last night and woke up feeling wonderful! That's pretty unusual for me. I had a little tummy pain and some diarrhea. I ended up taking a pill to stop it cuz I had to take mom to the doctor and shopping, then go shopping myself - I couldn't be running to the restroom at every place we stopped.
Now - time to mow the grass. Its shaping up to be a gorgeous weekend here in the Willamette Valley! :)

I am open to babysitting your scales for the duration. Just let me know. We could use the Fred Meyer parking lot as a transfer location.
:) Thanks, Marcadav :) I'll let you know if becomes too much of a temptation - but I think just telling hubby to hide it is the best option :)
Woke up feeling really great - I have had TWO good nights of sleep in a row. There must be something to this ketosis thing that is working in my favor. This morning hubby told me the "girls" are going away - so that must mean I'm losing now.
Tomi, there is a W30 challenge thread up for June.
Sitting here debating if I am starting the all protein tomorrow - or waiting until Monday, so I don't end up throwing out the bowl of leftover yumminess of ground, zucchini and a tiny bit of carrot.
On a side note, I am thinking of pulling the scales out of the dark recesses of the closet and weigh before I start this adventure ... have to prepare for the marauding dust bunnies that are currently guarding it.

Okay - day 5. I'm doing GREAT! Not a hint of a tummy ache or diarrhea in 2 DAYS! I will continue with this all protein experiment for a full 2 weeks.
My body continues to change. I'm still wearing my size 14 jeans, and L tops - but things are changing. Hubby keeps telling me my boobs are shrinking, and this morning told me my butt was getting smaller. :) I noticed in the mirror this morning that I'm getting my hour-glass back! :) I actually have curves again! Not just roles and bulges! :) I'm REALLY excited about that! I'm definitely getting stronger and my legs are really shaping up! Less cellulite and everything.
Have to confess - I had rum last night. But I still feel like I've been successful because in the past 7 days I've been 100% whole30 - and the past 5 days 100% ZERO carb.
Nice work, Tomi! All those little changes you are seeing are such good signs! I had a little cellulite on my butt 2 years ago when I was the same weight (but more fat than muscle) and that was the first thing to go away even though the scales didn't change.
