    It is so nice to wake up hungry rather that still full from eating too many almonds and coconut flakes the night before and slightly nauseous! Off to make some eggs with veggies!

    Not quite daily. I am back though! Last night went fine, one square of 90% chocolate and then off to bed. Tonight more of the same is planned. Dinner should be good -- meatloaf -- so I can eat...

    I'm back! I realized that I'm someone who needs some external validation and while DH loves me, he doesn't quite seem to care about these 20 lbs the way I do. He isn't negative but he also is in no...

    I decided to give up chocolate for October. One, I could eat a whole chocolate bar a night. Every night. Nice expensive chocolate. So that had to stop. The one bite tonight and another tomorrow?...

    On the self esteem front, particular as it relates to paleo (and exercise, for me). The best way to build it up is to do just that. Every single time I do something right, I pat myself on the back....

    Thanks @badgergirl!

    The speed interval runs are actually fun (though I would always prefer to go for distance, just that I don't hate them like I thought I would). And sure enough my regular 5...

    I'm trying a whole30 though I'm lame so it's a whole30 in which I change what I do but not exactly to the whole30 spec. However, I think I'll be in a better place and that's really my goal. So no...

    So it's 179 (I'll try to weigh on Sunday) and I'm 5'11. I went to the gym and did sprints on the bike, some core stuff and a little upper body weight training. Then I showered and went to sleep, so...

    calochortus and the plan

    I am an accidental primal eater. I lost 80 lbs or so (more on the 'or so' later) by upping my meat consumption and then looking at the bread/grains and figuring why eat that when I can have more...

    I think Paleo is healthier in general and I don't like shaming attempts like calling it 'faleo'. I'm not failing at anything. I'm serving my kids healthy treats. MY kids don't eat junk when they...

    Me too! I went off the rails recently and had some (at least home-made) cookies and two (ahem) bagels with cream cheese. I was both hungry and my stomach felt ... something. Not full but stuffed....

    I think you all just don't have kids. Kids need a LOT more carbs than us old farts and they love muffins and cookies and things like that. If I'm going to make my kids have 'weird' lunches when...

    I run but in the 10K range. My PB is 54:15. I'm also female so I'll be blunt -- do not fear eating fat. I went running on the beach and ate bacon and eggs fried in the bacon drippings (note: NO...
  14. pushing final weight loss, adding more strength training

    Before kids I was a runner/biker and though I ate low-fat, I could burn off all those carbs on a 50 mile hilly bike ride. After the kids, cookies were a way to address the loss of control feelings...
