I'm throwing a lot in the mix right now too....... starting whole30 (yesterday), and now looking at the elimination diet for Fructose Malabsorption (zero carbs for a couple weeks, then a slow re-introduction). But in reality they sorta work hand-in-hand. ALL of the things on the whole30 "NO" list are also on the FODMAPS "NO" list. The only thing different is the extreme cut of all carbs for the first 2 weeks to aid in bad bacteria die-off. Then I will add back in the approved veggies and fruits - ONE. AT. A. TIME!!! This will be a slow process. But I am determined to find the cause of my digestive issues. Heck............ maybe the digestive issues are the ROOT of my weight loss difficulties as well! Wouldn't that be an awesome thing to get healthy in my innerds ---- and thinner on my outerds? WIN WIN!!

Weight the same as yesterday
On the 5:2 protocol so far I have not experienced the weight upswing after up days. I've been either the same weight or down every day for the last 2 weeks except for the post binge day. I will weigh and measure tomorrow and then I will try not to do it again until July 1st. EEEK!
My son Billy took his placement exams for college. He received a perfect score on the English exam and placed into Pre Calculus for math. That is pretty good for a kid who stopped taking math 2 years ago after Trigonometry. The lady even suggested that he take a campus job as a math tutor. He hates math. Lol Billy feels really proud of himself and the reality of his graduation in a few weeks is hitting home in a good way.
My final exams start today. I cannot even tell you guys the ridiculous things we had to do with our tests to comply with the new state testing regulations. UGH!

Fair play on the weight and the boy, sounds like all is going well, apart from the not liking math bit! I appreciate it's hard, but dont fret about not touching the scale.
Good luck today, and this time I can't appreciate it!

Well, the fun part of not weighing is that we'll all be surprised, hopefully pleasantly, together on 7/1. I have to admit that I use the scale # as a feel good or bad device. I also use it to gauge the severity of a binge, which is just sick.
One of my main W30 personal goals is no binging. That would be one hell of a victory.

That would be great. We'll all be waiting for 7/1 with baited breath.

My son's personality came back the day after graduation! He never really liked high school classes, so once they were over he was both relieved and excited for the next step.
I bet you that once Billy gets to college and has a successful math class he will change his mind. My son hated it till he got into the higher levels where it is less memorization and more visual problem solving. Congrats on his success with his tests!
I know this is hard to believe, but I actually forget to get on the scale most mornings now, you will get there too.
A bingeless month will be a cause for celebration, decide on what non-food reward you will give yourself. Make it good!
