    I totally agree Chris. However, I am at the point I want all obstacles of my losing weight out of the way. I keep telling myself the end is the optimal outcome.

    I guess I am just not to the point where I believe that stevia is what is keeping me fat. If I get there, I will drop it loke a hot potato. Now, I am not saying it isn't a factor, at least for some. I just don't think for me it is enough of a factor to give it up, yet. Having said that, I have given up cream on my down days, so go figure, I was sure I could never give it up.

    I am thinking if I could just honestly stick to the plan I would be fine. I mean I lost the first 22 doing straight Atkins-junk and all, and stopped when I added the whole Primal part. Now obviously cleaning up my food didn't stop the progress, becoming lax did.

    I'm not sure about pure stevia leaf myself. If I thought I could control my sweetener intake, I might try it. I may try it someday when I hit goal.

    The evidence that the body releases insulin based on the taste of something sweet or even the anticipation of something sweet is compelling. Then there is evidence that removing false sweetness from ones diet can help bingers.

    Hence the 30 day trial through April 15th. The trick for me will be to stay clean so that it is a true test. This is part of my N=1 and no one has to follow me there.

    I feel that. Super-sweet anything lights up a big flashing neon sign inside me: BINGE!

    Yes, very true. Ketosis, though it has minimized my binges, has not completely gotten rid of them. I am hoping removing the sweet will make me stronger.

I don't want to waste my precious eggs .
    I have never been a fan of mayo as a condiment, but as a salad dressing for potato salad, egg salad, etc, it's essential. That said, I make it and have been successful. The trick seems to be adding the oil in slowly - like 1 tbsp at a time. And it's only 1 egg... I get more upset losing the oil!!

    I use a 2 cup measuring cup (glass) with one beater in my hand mixer. Works great! And I don't cut up my spatula when I clean the blades.

    We also have a storm system arriving this afternoon which may have contributed.
    Brad and I BOTH got a migraine yesterday! Only thing we could figure is that it was the weather. We went from sunny and warm on Sunday to brutally cold with snow yesterday and brutally cold again today.

    Well, Today has been a day. I just need to put some things down here so that I don't eat them.

    1) Woke up to a snowday. My husband was not able to get home from work because we live up a big hill. He ended up sleeping in his firehouse. When I got up at 5 am and he was not home, I didn't worry. I figured he was stuck at work or at the firehouse. Well, I didn't call him and I should have. He called about 6 am and was mad that I did not seem to care where he was. I am in the dog house and I deserve it. Sometimes I am so oblivious.

    2) Checked our bank account and it is totally empty with 6 days left until a pay day. This will prevent our going to the beer and cheese fest on Sun which will anger my husband even more.

    3) We were just served with court papers on a credit card that we owe. We were paying a monthly payment on it with another company. Apparently they sold it and we did not respond to their calls because we didn't know who they were. The court papers are in m y husband's name, but this too will be my fault since I do the finances.

    4) My husband insisted that this year we send out taxes all the way back to Long Island so that his friend can do them for us. We should have packaged them up in February. He has not communicated with this friend. It is now mid March. I even asked him if we could find a professional in our area. He said no. I have done our taxes with turbotax for 15 years. He thinks I am not doing a good job.

    The Good: I am still clean so far today. We watched our new copy of "The Hobbit" as a family sans Kevin. I got in a 3 hr nap, though it was more like emotional hibernation.
    AND I have fabulous friends on MDA who let me vent.
