    Do NOT complain about your cycle getting longer. Mine got much shorter when I was pre-menopausal and I ended up with catastrophically low iron levels. Scary low. Trust me, you do not want to be there. Good luck in figuring out the energy thing.
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

I love what I do, but sometimes the screaming all day gets to me and there is no way to avoid it when it's shot time! I've also gained extra time in my day since I don't have a 2 hour commute. Between the two, I've been sleeping well and have not woken up at 2am for a couple of days. Thanks for listening all, just knowing your out there helps!
    GREAT JOB on the walking! I'm right there with you - I walked another 2 3/4 miles today! Takes me right at 45 minutes also. Keep going! Are you keeping track of it? I started a log - and I log every mile I walk or bike. Since Jan 1 I've logged 130 miles. Thats ALMOST a mile for every day of the year so far. I let about a month go by without getting out cuz the weather was so crumby - but I'm making up for lost time now! At the end of year - I'm giving myself a dollar for every mile I log - hopefully I will be at my goal weight by then and will get LOTS of new clothes! YEAH!

    I can understand the need to have some time away from the screaming kids at the clinic......... I couldn't never work in that environment. Crying kids sets my nerves on end! I'm assuming the change in commute time means you have moved closer to work - so thats a big plus! Sounds like things are going well for you! I love hearing the accomplishments of others! Its gives me a boost with every one I read! Thanks for sharing!

    I've not been tracking, but that's a great idea. I've promised myself if I can get in the 150s I can get a new programmable crock pot. Commute time is 1 hour each way and the taking off of two weeks has given me more time. I do two days a week at the local clinic and teach full time on line. When I go to El Paso, I put in time at my full time job, 24-36 hours at the military hospital and 1-3 nights at a pediatric night clinic. So the time off feels so good!

    Hi ladies, I will join this thread with your permission. 27 years old and in Western Canada here, full-time in medical school, single, and primal x 1 month. I used to be very obese at 220 lbs, then had weightloss surgery after battling with my weight my entire life. Hit 140-145, started Crossfit last year, then went primal and now down to 135-136 or so. Not really looking to lose much weight or anything at this point, it's more of a health thing for me right now.

    You are one BUSY girl! May I ask --- WHY you have taken on such a load? Are you just that Type A personality that must be go-go-go all the time? Or...... the type that doesn't know when to say 'NO'??? I wonder if you are just spreading yourself way too thin!

    Thwew. Honestly, though, if it keeps up you might want to get checked up. Or not. Some people on the forums go a little nuts when you suggest they talk to a doctor about this stuff.

    My cycles totally normalized on paleo. Even my cramping reduced. I still bottom out the morning before my period (reduced energy, headaches, a need to eat every ounce of chocolate in sight), but otherwise it comes, it goes, and life continues at normal.

    I'm getting back on track! Have had several days of really good eating - and walking! My legs are a bit sore from 2 days of going 2 3/4 miles. But I will not let up! I've pooped around too long with being a weanie and not wanting to go walk in the rain! Okay - in my own defense, it really isn't the rain, it was the cold. Fibromyalgia and cold don't mix well. So, I stayed in the house where it was warm. But I can't use that excuse now cuz the temps are in the 50's and that is plenty warm enough to throw on a jacket and go for a nice brisk walk. And that is where I'm going right now! Yeah ME!

    Come on, Ladies! Get out there!!!!

    PHEW!!! all done with the whole 2 3/4 miles!!! I wasn't sure if I would make it cuz my stomach starting cramping - but I figured out it wasn't "issues", just hunger pangs! So, breakfast of champions for me!!!! the rest of the salmon that I cooked for dinner last night. I've now had salmon - 4 meals in a row! I'm wondering if I could ever get sick of salmon???? I strongly doubt it! Dinner will have to be chicken I guess. Not nearly as good............

    Part type A and part necessity. When I went to teaching full time I took a 50% pay cut and part of my value as an instructor is having a clinical practice. Now that we've sold the house in El Paso, I'm cutting back slowly at the local clinic. Interviewing for a local university, which would stop the commuting to El Paso, so fingers crossed. .........
