You have my sympathy that the scale is being evil.
I'm 5'4". As a woman, I will have to be 174 to reach "overweight". At 5'9", 179 is barely overweight. 201 is also in the "overweight" category... So, the good news is that you're not obese!!! YAY PANDA! It's hard to imagine a panda that's not round!
Anyway, hang in there Panda.
In regard to the iodine thread, maybe the next one should be entitled something having nothing to do with iodine so he's not tempted.
Primal since March 5, 2012
SW: 221 | CW: 182 | LPW: 166 | UGW: 140 (80 lbs loss)
If you are a man I would recommend IF. But if you are a woman, not so much.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

Thank you for sharing that, brave Panda. It makes me feel less alone about my epic Primal fail of late. I have inexplicably put on a stone in the last couple of months, and it's a bit frightening and I don't know what to do next. The more I read (and I read waaaaay too many Paleo blogs) the more overwhelmed with conflicting information I become.
I'm sorry, I wish I had some wise suggestions, but all I can offer is empathy and support and fluffy kitteh hugs.
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
I've figured it out. It's bone.
Our bones have all been so weak and frail from eating CW, that now that we are Primal, after our initial weight losses, our bodies have discovered food for our BONES! We are busy building up bone matter, strengthening our frames, getting tough and strong on the inside.
Bones weigh a lot, you know.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

My thought on the menu is that it could be dairy (though you don't seem to be having much) and a larger breakfast might help. I know, more food doesn't really make sense, but some people seem to need to keep at "maintenance" calories in order to lose, not at deficit.
