Weird.
    Yeah, the commercial had me wanting one of the brownie batter filled ones. Really, it wasn't anything that special. Now the craving is out of my system.

    I drive by a donut place every morning (it's even the Southern Maid, which are the only decent donuts around here.) Each morning, I flirt with the thought of a donut or an eclair. Each morning, I remember that they probably fry in cottonseed oil and the donuts are probably lukewarm at best. Each morning, I think bittersweet thoughts damning PB as I keep driving.

    Bummer.

    On to a better day.

    And watch out for a crash from your sugar high. Be ready with any remedies that help.

    Well then, it has served its purpose. That's good!

    You'll have the next few days to monitor and see if something helps with the fatigue. When I led a Whole30 thread on here early in 2012, reporting in there and checking in with other members kept me on track. But it's important to remember that you are truly only accountable to yourself. We are all proud of you, and we are all responsible for our own behavior (I worried sometimes that if I went off track, someone else would too). I'm not sure I'm saying what I want to say here, but I guess I am hoping you won't be hard on yourself for this.

    Oh, good call. Might want to be ready with some bouillon?

    Paula, how many times have you binged since the first of the year? Not many. How often were you binging last year. A lot more than that. Celebrate the victory, learn from the failure. You are a wonderful lady and cannot expect 100% compliance from the get-go on a behavior that has been around for a long time.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Paula, why should you feel like you are failing the EMF group? To me, it's encouraging to see people lead a journey that isn't perfect. Sometimes I get depressed reading Mark's Friday success stories. I swear to heavens everyone there gets to their goal in a matter of a few short months. Which, by the way, I totally celebrate...but, it's not me and I can't relate as well. I'm sometimes not sure I'll ever to get my goal weight. So, reading honest journeys of ups and downs, and coming back from the downs, there's a lot there and that's NOT a failure.

    2 binges and one permissive eating day, but I'm right in the middle of it, so I can't tell how many more there will be. Yes, it is better and I could live with three binges a month, except that I will make no weightloss progress that way.

    Here is the truth of the last two months so that you all understand why I downplay my January weight loss. I started EMF in early December at about 242. I was down to 235 on xmas eve. 8 Day holiday binge fest. Jan 1st 247.5 lbs. Got down to 233.
    Jan. 12-15 binge, back up to 242. Clean until Feb 10. Got down to 228.8. Today 234.

    It seems like a hopeless situation for weightloss, but at least I eat healthier most days of the month.

I am probably feeling energetic today because I am high on sugar.
    Paula, you haven't failed any of us. Hell, you're still an inspiration to all of us doing this. If it weren't for you starting this thread and WOE, I'd be in the same yo-yo hell I've been in all my life. So don't say its a "failure". You had a momentary lapse in judgement. This of this as trying to get away from *insert any guy here who could be a temptation* and you keep going back because you know that he is great, but you need to get away from him as the temptation can kill you. You can do this. Just take it one meal at a time. That is all you can do. You are fighting the good fight. Love ya!

    Paula, I believe you're one of the main champions of primal for health, not just weight. Even if you do or don't need to lose weight (not up for discussion, your decision), you're in it for the long haul. Get healthy, get your brain and mind healthy, then worry about your body. No one's perfect. If you were, we likely wouldn't be friends because I'd call you a sham. You've come so far in such a short time. That's amazing in and of itself. You've only JUST found your key. You gotta grease the lock before it works all the time every time.
