Welcome, Boopy! Will that menu be enough food for you? I would still be hungry after that.
I'm Boopy, and I'm going to try eating the right stuff. I've been eating the wrong stuff, and way too much of it. Eating the wrong stuff is making me miserable. And fat. And fatly miserable. And tired. And tired of being miserably fat. Hopefully, the eating the right stuff will change all that.
I'm a 44-year-old woman, married, no kids, 5' 8", and 60 lbs overweight. I woke up feeling awful this morning in every way a person can feel awful. I figure it can only get better from here. Right? Right??!?!
What I scarfed today (Day 1)
Breakfast: Coffee with stevia.
Lunch: 3 eggs, 1 clementine.
Dinner: TBD - Chicken quarter, asparagus, salad, glass of wine (maybe) <--- this changed to a big salad with can of tuna on top.
Dog walk: those suckers squeezed out 5 poopies, so I did 5 squats to pick them up. Unfortunately, my dogs are small, so I can't count this towards "lifting heavy things".
Exercycled: while watching an episode of "Being Human" (UK version of course).
Going to...uh...leg wrestle... my darling man late tonight after we watch Warrior. TGIF!
Uh... I just can't face getting on the scale today. I'm planning on weighing in on Mondays because Mondays already suck. I bet the Suck-o-meter will probably barely even register a change when I add a weigh-in first thing every Monday morning.

Yeah, normally this amount of food wouldn't cut it for me either, but I had an epic (E*P*I*C) binge yesterday and I'm actually still relatively full. I'm sure that will wear off any moment now...
Day 3 and wow, do I feel awful. I knew I would, I'm a terrible carb-o-holic and I think my body is in absolute shock over this sudden turn of events. I'm in shock, too.
First the bad news - I had terrible insomnia last night, digestive issues this morning, and a migraine at 3 a.m. Urk.
The good news: I'm making it through the hell that is Super Bowl weekend and staying on plan. My husband had Irish Car Bombs and Fritos on Friday nite. I did not. I did have Irish Car Bomb envy, but fortunately there aren't calories in that. We watched the movie Splice (comically awesome!) and I managed to have a good time while not snacking -- a real achievement for me. Weekends are going to be a real trial for me, I can tell.
What I scarfed Saturday (Day 2)
Breakfast: Coffee with stevia, 1 fried egg, small chunk of steak, sliced tomatoes.
Lunch: Big salad at a BBQ joint that had lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, onions, smoked pork, hard boiled egg, with vinegar on top.
Dinner: Chunk of raw cauliflower, a chicken leg quarter baked with evoo and garlic salt and pepper, and 2 glasses of my favorite Chianti.
2.1 mile dog walk.
1 hour easy bike riding through local neighborhood.
I beat my husband at cribbage, muhahahahahaha!
I think I need to bite the bullet and use that The Daily Plate thing to track calories, because I have the urge to over-restrict and no idea how many calories are in what I'm eating. I just hate the idea of weighing/measuring stuff, and writing every thing down. Ugh.

You know I read this as "Booby Eats". I thought someone was trying to make their boobs bigger on a primal diet, lol!
Congrats on deciding to start eating right. I can completely relate to the carb withdrawal, and luckily, it does generally go away in a couple of weeks at the most
I also had insomnia when I first started lowering carbohydrates, but eventually it resolved. Better luck sleeping tonight!
