    Primal Fuel
    178.8 :^) had a long, long stall there at 181 but I upped my daily walk from 4 miles to 5 and things are starting to move again. I've lost almost 52 pounds, that's almost halfway! people are starting to notice too.

    I can't get to the gym for a while because one of my kids is sick and I can't bring her into the child care room like that. I did wake up to 174.4 today though so I think the 7 miles and yoga marathon paid off after all. I'll just have to hit the weights hard when my kids improve.

    Thanks :^) I got some serious goals to meet; 150 by xmas!

    I'm thinking right now how STRONG and sprightly i feel lately, a few people have said to me that I look like a "new person" or a "totally different person" and I feel that way too - I can run up stairs, 2 at a time even, no more schlumping around going from one seat to another. When I go for my nightly walk I want to RUN, only my lack of proper breast support keeps me from running all the time! I can do 5 miles no problem, only time keeps me from walking longer. I have so much energy I really feel like I am in the best shape of my life. I know by spring I am going to be even stronger and more flexible and I am having so much excitement thinking of what it will be like to feel EVEN BETTER than I do now!

    My therapist brought up, rather cynically "oh but then you have to keep it off" - honestly, I have NO fear of keeping it off. None. If I can happily live like this and lose 2 pounds a week every week, and i KNOW I will never add grains and sugar back into my diet (not one iota of them, no interest in those foods) I worry about how I will stop losing, not about how not to gain it back. I am reading, "Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms" by Datis Kharrazian (recommended from the Healthy Skeptic blog) and I am convinced beyond any shadow of a doubt that I must avoid any and all gluten for the rest of my life in order to preserve (what's left of ) my thyroid and my health. So no chance of pizza or a box of Little Debbie cakes in my future. I will eat the way I am eating now (100% primal) for the rest of my life. I might add a few hundred more calories of meat and veg when I reach my goal weight but I will always be 100/0, never 80/20. I may add an occasional glass of white wine here and there but that would be it. I feel so great, I can't even explain. I really am becoming a different person.
