    I think it is more about the help and support that he did not get when he was in school. He wanted to be an RN from the time he was in HS, but the guidance counselor basically told him he wasn't smart enough. His parents also discouraged him because they didn't want him to fail. It turns out that he has ADD. We had him tested at 48 so he could get services in nursing school. He fears his sons will end up wasting years like he did.

    I am a little behind on BIW lessons. There was no lesson on Mon due to a weather related system outage.

    BIW Mod 5 lesson1. Review and execute.

    -Lead, don't follow. When looking at self improvement materials use independent thinking. Prescriptions don't work for people. "Do xyz and you will lose 10 lbs in 5 days." Lose the prescription mentality.
    -Steal principles, not prescriptions. Don't log because Dean logs. Try it and see what works for you. BIW is not a prescription, but a framework of ideas for building will power.
    -Create a powerful Why? Anything you commit to must have a self created, strong Why? Otherwise you will not stick with the new behavior. Every time you rack up a failure of follow through, it is like a pinch of poison that undermines your trust in yourself.

    I'm pretty bad about prescriptions. Oh, Paula lost 10 pounds doing "XYZ". Maybe I should try that. In part, nothing for me is fast, so when I see something fast, I want it too (even if my body doesn't work that way!).

    Me too. Even when I have something that is working, I am easily led astray by the next great thing in the Primal world.

    Yeah, this. It is as if we second guess ourselves. Sometimes I want to kick myself in the ass for doing it yet again.

    The crazy thing is that I do best when I follow the recommendations for weight loss as laid out in the Primal Blueprint. (100g of carbs max, 1 g protein per lb of lean body mass, the rest in healthy fat, an IF thrown in once in a while) If I eat to satisfaction within those parameters, calories naturally fall between 2000 and 2400. I feel great and lose weight slowly and steadily.

    The next time I start talking about some new plan, please remind me to stay the course. : )
