    Slow and steady is my course. I am amazed that I continue to lose weight. I totally suck at self control sometimes. I will be doing good and Friday comes and down I go. It was Alex's birthday at work and the boss brought cake - I found myself having a piece and then had some chips with my dinner- all that after my first IF that morning -- I know, unbelievable -- but true. The amazing thing is that I continue to lose.

    I now weigh 196.5 lbs. bust is down to 42/36, waist is 37, and hips are still 44. But my thighs are noe 23.5 and calf is 15.5
    Funny how I lose mostly on top and my hips stay the same. I am just grateful to have lost anything at all. I have not been below 200 in a very long time.

    I have a wedding to attend and will try to stay on track but might trip a bit but I am building a lifestyle not a diet
    I have been working at the greenhouse doing farm work which includes a lot of lifting and working on pushups and squats but not ready for pull ups yet. I did go for a long walk on Thursday after work and almost killed myself -- that was hard... Had to take ibuprofen to kill the pain so I could sleep

    I am taking more supplements right now too to address my anxiety and depression-- started taking 5htp and tyrosine along with vitamin b6

    Not been very hungry lately. Sunday I passed on dinner, yesterday I skipped breakfast and today I only had raspberries for lunch. I don't know what's up with me but I am following my body's lead.

    Continuing my low eating phase.
    B - an orange, coffee
    l - shrimp stir fry with peppers and carrots and co
    d - 1/2 cup greek yogurt, zevia, pork rinds

    I have not had pork rinds in a very long time but reading about it on the site got me thinking about it so I had some. Although I was not very hungry --- I did have some greek yogurt as it was on sale today and I had not had any in a very long time. I am not in the mood right now for something very heavy. I am concerned that in this low eating phase that I find myself, I may not be getting enough protein and maybe a bit too many carbs with the fruit and veg and very little meat. But I am just gonna ride it out for a few more days to see where it brings me. Its what my body seems to want right now.

    Well it was another weird day of low consumption.....
    B - 1/2 cup greek yogurt -- no coffee
    s- coffee
    L - 2 manderine oranges, macadamias
    D - 2 porkchops, carrots, peppers, zevia soda

    Saturday tomorrow, hopefully I will be able to get back to normal after the weekend. I have been eating, but not eating well. I was not really hungry at dinner time but I wanted to have some real food and not just fruit and yogurt. Is this normal?

    I seem to be stagnating a bit -- gonna try going back to the book -- back to basics -- while I enjoy looking at the posts on the site, some times I get confused because of the differing opinions of what paleo is. It might help me get my focus again by going back and reading the book again....

    I have stalled on weight loss lately .. Been to busy to post much and have not been eating as well. Leaving for work at 4:30 am has become hard to have a good breakfast and I find myself eating a lot of yogurt and a bit too much fruit because it is easy too pack. I have not been getting nearly enough fat. Got myself hooked on diet pop again -- because it's quick and easy. Trying to get myself turned back around by making a marrow broth and some coconut far balls. Thinking I will try to go low carb ( lower than now) for about a month to see if that will jump start my weight loss once again.

    I think I am too hard on myself. I keep thinking I am failing because I am not following the diet very strictly. I cheat constantly and can't go a day without chocolate. I don't always feel great- it could be my thyroid changing now that I weigh less than I did before. I need a blood test. But my numbers are coming down so I am a bit encouraged
    I am down to190 from 196 - a big difference from the 230 at Christmas. So I am aiming for 185 in August ( or sooner )
    I would love to drop below the obesity rang by the end of summer
