    I'm doing my rewards a bit differently. A pro pedicure once I am under 200 lbs. I will come up with others as mini goals progress. Setting them that way is best for me.

    I am also very unmusical, as it were.

    I am not good at using rewards. If I attach them to a behavior, I can do this for a little while, but they are totally useless if I attach them to weight goals. I just can't think of many things I want as reward. Basically if I want it I get it or talk myself out of it. I am not good at putting off gratification. Which is probably part of my weight problem in the first place.

    Hmmm, thinking about the reward system for myself. I would need to make it really good. I get myself little rewards here and there because I used to have to be tight with money all the time, so now I spend a little on me when I want to.

    I am thinking for every 30 days of eating no grains, no sugar, and no binges, I will place $100 in "savings" for new clothes when I reach goal weight. If I achieve 15 days in a row, it is $30, and if it is 20 it would be $40, and 25 days $50. I can keep a tally, so that when I reach goal weight, I can see all the hard work that I put in and get some great outfits out of it

    As with everything, no one thing works for all people. I would LOVE to be able to do this, but finances would prevent it. I wish you luck with this and can just imagine the amazing wardrobe you could get through this kind of success!

    Well, I most likely wouldn't put it in savings, because I most likely won't have that much to do so with. I would most likely allow myself to buy outfits over time or at least just go spend $ on clothes and not feel bad. Like a bank on a video game, earning guilt free shopping for some time in the future with future money that I don't have. LOL. I will have to buy new clothes if I get back to 170, as I got rid of all but my favorite clothes in those sizes.

    Exactly! I am going to keep an account of all the money I "earn" to buy something really fabulous when we are more flush. I'll allow one $30 or under item/month. That way I am encouraged to behave as much as possible. I still have $15 to spend in February, but could turn that into $30 by the end of the month.

    Guitar I played more folk songs last night. The improvement in speed moving from one chord to another has been exponential. Of course right now I am only doing the easy chords.

    Starting Strength I downloaded the ebook from Amazon last night. Yes, there are free versions on the web, but I don't want to steal money from the guy. I may download a free pdf version so that I can print diagrams etc. I also found a really great FAQ for the program Starting Strength- Complete Guide
    I, of course, want to jump in right away, but good technique is the most important thing. I have been watching Rippetoe's videos on You Tube.

    EMF Wt. 230.8, still up. I have got to stop reading the "45+" thread. I am starting to feel confused. Don't get me wrong, I still believe in lchf, but I have been wondering if I could move the fat percentage back down to 70% (currently 80%) and allow a little more protein.

    Snowing this morning, I need to leave at 8am to hit cardio kick at the gym.

    It sounds like you have things well in hand. How are you liking SS so far? I was talking to K about getting a copy but she is more inclined to get some fitness thing for the Xbox, which seems counter-intuitive to me, but what do I know?

    Yeah, a lot of confusing threads out there, and depending on which one you read you could pretty much do anything and still call it primal it seems. I wish you the best of luck finding the n=1 that works best for you.

    Personally, I can't do the lchf because I can't bring myself to add butter or 1/2 a cup of HWC to my coffee when I could just eat a couple more eggs, which of course ups the protein etc.

    My last set of goals increases the protein goal and decreases the carb goal, my fat hovers around 75%. I think if you are going to start strength it would not be a bad idea to increase the protein, at least on lifting days. Within the LCHF community I have seen numbers that figure protein anywhere from .8g/kg of goal body weight to 1.5g/kg of goal body weight. I think as long as you are keeping your carbs low, which is what will get and keep you in ketosis, you probably have a lot of leeway with the fat and protein macros.

    So eat the egg yolks for the fat.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
