    I hope it works out for you so come share all the details with us when you get back.
    It helps I've done it before. I was really scared of hitchhiking until I hiked the PCT and had to do it. Since the trail is known to the locals, they are happy to pick up hikers so it ends up not being the same as something totally nuts like hitchhiking on the Interstate.

    Also, hiking the PCT cured me of ever needing to know where I'm going to sleep tonight.

    As far as clean hotels go, that's just another way the corporations suck money out of you. First of all, they aren't that clean. They smell funny. They are noisy. There's either too much light or not enough. It's hard to get good sleep. Nature is clean and quiet and smells good. I sleep way better out there.

    Well, true on the not so clean part, and most everything else. I've never tried camping without tents, sleeping bags, cook stoves, all the "necessities" But I certainly admire you.

    So I read today's success story. It's a really good one. I liked it a lot. I sometimes wish that they'd post what these ladies actually eat each day while doing no exercise at all.

    I know - another story where I'm thrilled for the writer, while turning green with envy! Course, her before picture looked pretty amazing to me! Obviously no celulite in her genes. I think I might stop reading those friday posts. I always end up feeling crappy. I wonder if Mark would consider a "not getting anywhere, but still trying" post?????

    grumpy day! must have been that crumby phlebotomist that stuck me twice and then let the blood dribble out of my arm and stain my jeans!

    Maybe this is a day for mom's golden rule: "If don't have something nice to say - don't say anything at all"

    Sorry...........

    Her journal is really good. I, too, was amazed when I went on low-carb primal how all my disordered eating and mental problems with food went away. I feel a lot of regret for how many years I wasted blaming myself for my shortcomings around food.

    Any of you find cleaning/decluttering therapeutic? I'm not sure if it's just my way of doing *something* about our situation right now (long commute for DH, nothing walkable, rising taxes) but I spent a good portion of today decluttering our kitchen and it feels good. I haven't actually gotten to the cleaning part because our kitchen has LOTS to declutter. Unless you count recycling mounds of paper as cleaning! Was hoping to finish today but I just worked out and I'm not sure my body will let me do anymore. About half way done though and it's so much nicer to look at (we have an open layout).

    Happy Mother's Day to all! Off to enjoy a shower in peace (kids are out with DH).

    Hi, all: I'm new to PB (beginning my 4th week) and have been following this thread with interest. I'm 57 yrs old, about 5'2" and weighed 140 at the start of my PB journey. Prior to beginning PB, I trained for and ran half-marathons -- not because I loved running, but because it was an easy way to ramp up my metabolism and burn calories. I started running about 4 years ago and at first lost weight. But ultimately, even the long distance running didn't bring weight loss. Since starting PB, I've backed off the running (in part due to a knee issue). I walk every day, have started back with XFit 2x/wk when I'm home (I travel for my job) and am attempting to get to hot yoga 1x/wk. I also play golf (9 holes walking per week) and kayak.

    Since starting PB, I've lost .5 lbs. I'm not totally focused on the scale and am ok with slow weight loss. I'd even be happy with becoming more muscled/toned and having clothes fit better, but that hasn't really happened yet either.

    The reason I'm posting is that when I started PB, I focused on eliminating grains and sugar. I've done a good job with that, having only 1-2 diversions in the 3+ wks. However, I'm still eating a small amount of dairy (cheese, a little yogurt), have a glass of red wine almost daily and a square of 86% chocolate almost daily. Also, as a result of years of CW, it's taking a real mental adjustment to move away from low-fat way of eating (lean cuts of beef, chicken breast without skin, turkey breast without skin, no bacon, etc). I'm also still eating 3 meals per day plus a snack on most days.

    A "typical" day of eating includes:

    B: 2 eggs, veg, maybe a slice of cheese in an omelet, cooked in butter/ghee or coconut oil
    L: leftovers from dinner, veg, frozen blueberries with coconut milk (yum!!)
    S: homemade beef jerky, maybe with a slice of cheese; or pork rinds w/ homemade salsa
    D: meat, veg, sometimes a 1/2 a potato or sw potato, 1 gl red wine, 1 square chocolate

    My plan is to refine my diet monthly. So my question is: what should I focus on next -- dairy, wine, chocolate or more fat? I've not been ravenously hungry but by the time meal time comes around, I'm hungry and ready to eat. The afternoon snack could be more habit than true hunger...

    TIA for any and all thoughts you have.
