    239 still today .. which is good because i dropped the weight so fast last week i wasnt sure it would hold... especialy because ive eaten like 2lbs of strawberries in the last couple days .. got some good deals on strawberries so couldnt resist LOL .. but i do need to give up on the fruit again because it helps me lose ..

    also noticing i lose faster when i IF for a couple days and then get to 3 meals a day .. so this next week i will copy last week .. no food between 2pm and 8am Monday and Tuesday, and 3 meals a day Wed-Fr ... we will see if i can lose a couple pounds next week ..

    i say it all the time on here, but this is like a dream .. its been so fast people ask if im sick, they ask if im depressed from my mother passing away, they ask if my chrons is rreally bad, and all i can say is no.. ive REALLY lost 66lbs in about 3.5 months just eating different, no excercise, just eating different .. its a miracle .. and i feel better, i feel less hungry, have less cravings .. also, a good friend at work is 13lbs down as of yesterday which is less than 2 weeks.. we set a goal for him to drop 25 in a month before thanksgiving, and i think he will beat that EASY .. another friend started as well .. i love helping my friends out with this .. i cant help but want to pass it on, its like a secret that needs to be known by EVERYONE ... im also thinking of startting to print tshirts about primal life ...

    still at 240 ... up a lb or so, probably less than a half pound ..

    little plateau to overcome .. hopefully i can do the IF/then 3 meal thing again and ignore these strawberries! also got on the eliptical this morning for the first time in forever .. only 10 minutes, but wanated to get more steps in, maybe this will become a daily thing. ..

    ps - im ready for the winters! i actually kinda miss it, ive done so much this spring/summer/fall it will be nice to just relax a little!

    giving carbs a go after figuring that i have been eating 25-35g a day ..

    for dinner a fair size sweet potato and turkey ... the texture of the potato felt funny! but that will push me to around 90 carbs on the day (trying to hit that PB 50-100 for weight loss maybe 1 day out of the week while i try this?)

    we will see what works ... also going to try for possibly leaner foods ... my calories have been around 1000-1500 a day .. so I think i will continue to lose, just trying to find the most efficient way

    237 today .. barely .. almost 236 ..

    i dont think the carbs helped with the loss, they did in fact make me feel like crap, and messed with my chrons some .. so i dont know if i will be having them again .. the key for me is green veggies .. broccoli, greens, leafy veggies, etc help me with my stomach to move through my chrons area until surgery next month ...

    just thought i would check in ... 220 before new years still is the goal, and would be such a GREAT feeling .. 200 by spring then would be like a dream ..

    Hey Todd! You're doing so well and you've really inspired me - please don't fret about the scale too hard. I think your body is doing the best it can to protect itself and help you lose weight in a safe way. You aren't doing anything wrong, though I'd avoid the berries of course if they are irritating to your Crohn's.

    Whatever you decide to change, keep enjoying yourself and try not to worry - you will achieve your goals!

    thanks my friend!

    this morning i weighed in at 235 ... that makes 70 lbs in less than 4 months!

    i started a leptin reset yesterday .. so hopefully that helps me get back in control ... my work schedule has me eating dinner most nights at 9pm .. so im working the reset to have no lunch but dinner around 4pm ... BIG protien filled breakfast within 30 minutes of waking up .. and fasting between 4-5pm and 6-7am the next day ..

    with winter coming and an upcoming chrons surgery i want to continue the push hard .. and i need to find a way to take more steps per day as well
