    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. : )

    Boy does this one hit me between the eyes! Speaking only about my weight loss efforts - I certainly have not been a leader or had a powerful WHY. I let my husband derail my healthy eating (or drinking) by allowing his cravings to be become my own. And I have not established a BIG enough reason to get this weight off ................. because I WANT TO has never held firm enough to get me through the weak times or the tough times or the times of strong outside influence. But I think my gut issues along with the I want to part is finally enough to give me my powerful WHY! I think I'm finally there. At least at the moment I firmly there............ lets see what happens when I'm tested.

    How does this speak to you in terms of your binging? (I haven't read past this post so if you've answered - ignore my question)

    my motivation

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate
    Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato
    Coffee and tea
    Eggs
    Curry
    White potato
    Dairy - including butter

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.

    Again ............... I've been a follower - not a leader!!! I have ADD when it comes to my diet and exercise efforts.

    I readily admit that I am the Queen of tweaking. I am really trying to just go back to my most recent what was working and stick to it. 15 weeks I lost 15 pounds, now why would I go and tweak that? I am back to it for now that is all I can say for myself.

    Chris are you tweaking now? Or, have you gone back to the 15lb/15 day thing?
