    Yesterday I ate around 2200 calories 50% fat, 30% protein (144 gms), 20% carb. It was an odd day because we took the kids out to the local wing place. Normally I would be around 1600 or 1700 calories.

    My weight is 215.8. Its up, but I expected that. I worked out late last night and had my protein drink at 8 pm.

    The cool thing about yesterday was my mood. Happy and energetic all day.

    Okay, so yesterday I figured out my Basal Metabolic Rate then my average calorie burn per day (2600). I am eating on average 1900 cals/day, so by calorie theory, I should lose at least one pound / week. It will be interesting to see if that works out to be true. I am eating 75-100 carbs/day and feel good at that level.

    The key, of course is staying on plan for more than a few days. I am currently 3 days clean. Wt. 215.

    I may finally be done with Weight Watchers. I had a very emotional time on Tuesday when I went to the WW meeting that my Mom and I attended together for the first time since her death. Everybody already knew due to an e-mail I sent to them, so I got lots of sympathy. It was uncomfortable though because there was a new leader who didn't know my Mom. I felt as if I didn't belong anymore even though I am a founding member of that group. Then I heard someone say the name Wilma, my Mother's name and not a very common one. Weird...at some point in the last month another woman named Wilma joined that group. I heard the Casablanca quote in my head..."of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world she walks into mine". I cried all the way home.
    I don't know, I may change groups or just drop it all together and save 40 bucks a month.

    FWIW I would quit, $40 a month could easily be used in a more useful way. (a new pair of shoes comes to mind or on a good bargain hunting day an outfit).

    You made me grin with your Casablanca quote, but I know it was likely not something that made you grin. I fear you are in for more than a few of these types of moments in the coming months, and my heart goes out to you. Know they are coming and be careful not to use them as an excuse to derail yourself.

    p.s. I think that the WW meetings may be keeping your head in the "diet" mode. You really are a different person than when you started Primal and this isn't really about being a fluffy person on a diet trying to get thinner and healthy. I think you need to give yourself a new definition such that there really isn't an on the wagon off the wagon mentality anymore, you are a primal girl now.

    I like your last paragraph. It is true. I should consider myself Primal all of the time and my off times as the 20% (which lately has been 50%). The problem is that I don't think Mark intended the 20% to include wheat, because that would defeat the purpose of attaining optimum health.

    I'm pretty sure I will be giving up WW. I was really there for the last year to support my Mom. My monthly pass runs out on 11/24. That will give me time to say goodbye to the ladies. Maybe I'll start voice or guitar lessons.
