    It doesn't take much for me either when it comes to eating non-primal (pizza this weekend). I think tired and bored are states of being that tend to be very detrimental for me in general.

    I'm so proud of you for staying strong! I can totally sympathize with feeling bingey even on primal foods. My new OA sponsor has told me she can binge on anything (even something "healthy" like cottage cheese) and I am the same way. Just keep at it! You are doing so well!

    For reasons I cannot fathom, I do not have problems with binging anymore. I wish I knew what stopped me from binging, so that if I start again I will know how to stop it. Cause I think binging is more about the action than what you are eating.

    I think part of it is giving myself permission to lay down and listen to a meditation if I am tired. Another part is having a very long list of things I want to do that require varying degrees of thought, time, energy. And probably the biggest part, luck.

    Hope all is well with your mom and getting ready for school to start.

    Bingeing is my biggest hurdle in my journey to ultimate health. Chris, I think you are right about it being more about the action. I find if I go to bed or distract myself in some other way then I can avoid a binge. Last night was better. I think one of the keys for me is to have a satisfying dinner. If I feel as if I have been in some way deprived, then watch out. Deprived = Depraved

    Aug 21st - Clean Day, No work out-Rest Day Tomorrow is official weigh in. I can't believe I actually made it a week without weighing myself.

    Today Mom has to have fluid drained again. 3 hrs at the hospital for us. I am very stressed about what is going to happen when I go back to school. Thank God my husband works nights and can help. We'll figure it out.

    Good Luck at the hospital, 3 hours, that is the kind of time I am grateful for the nook the family gave me as a present when I was in the hospital!

    Hi, Geostump told me you're the person to see when it comes to meshing Weight Watchers with PB. My husband urged me to start on WW last Tuesday (after me doing PB for 5 weeks and not losing any weight or inches). Reading through your posts about WW, it looks like they're still useful for accountability and support, so that's encouraging. I like that WW doesn't count fruit and vegetables, but they seem to come down hard on fatty foods. My 1/4 cup of ice cream using heavy cream comes out to 11 points while a 1/2 cup of regular ice cream is only 4 pts. Calorie-wise, though, they're both similar. Go figure! EDIT: Rechecked the calories and the heavy cream recipe comes to 290 calories--100 more than I thought. Oops! Still not fair, though, even with the correction.

    I'm nervous about the second WW meeting tomorrow. Does the leader check my food log? I don't want her to see the lack of grains and abundance of bacon and then give me a lashing.

    And I'm sorry that your mother is going through cancer. I hope she's feeling better soon. My family history is also riddled with cancer, and avoiding that fate is one of the top reasons I started PB. Hopefully we can both look forward to dying of just very old age.

    Hi Heidi,

    Don't worry, leaders do not generally check you log unless you ask. She may glance at it just to see if you are on the right track. If she checks and comments on the lack of grains tell her you are gluten intolerant. The new points plus program allows more protein for fewer points, but you will need to use some of the extra 49 to cover those fats. I don't know how much you have to lose, but I would keep fruit down to 1 serving/day. The ice cream points seem high to me. I make coconut ice cream with 2 cups of heavy cream and 1.5 cups of coconut milk. A 1/4 cup equals 5 points. If you give me the ingredients for your ice cream, I can input the numbers in the recipe builder at ww.com to double check.

    You are right, WW is great for support and accountability, but don't be tempted by their food products or their "eat whatever you want as long as you count it" philosophy. If you stay primal, you will soon be the biggest loser in your group.

    If you want to talk more about your first 5 weeks on Primal, feel free. Maybe together we can figure out what to change to get things going.

    EDIT: I read your journal and left a response there as well. Talk to you soon.

    8 clean eating days - 9 pounds down. (OK at least 5 of those were grain bloat)

    I think my total weight loss is now over 65 lbs, but I won't claim it until I weigh in at my WW meeting tonight. I Will change my sig. tonight.

    I lost another inch in my bust...Why not my hips? damn damn damn

    Congrats on the weight loss! Oh, and that pesky lower body--my top half always goes down first in measurements. Once I lose more weight it's a given that I'll look pear-shaped for awhile, until the weight loss goes down more.

    As far as the ice cream goes, I redid the calories and it's 290--not 190. Sorry, it must be all the hunger on WW that's making my brain spazz out. For the recipe, I use 4 tbsp heavy cream, 2 tsp xylitol (10 cals per tsp), and 1 square of unsweetened baking chocolate.

    OK apparently it is 11 points...so save it for days when you have points to spare.
