    Haha, I love the "accidental" cookie sabotage. I will totally do the same thing. Speaking of girl scout cookies, I forgot to order my peanut butter patties this year! I guess that's a good thing, but man are they good. Totally not worth the 250 calories or so (per cookie) and crap ton of sugar, but sometimes my tastebuds forget the numbers (and really, how could you just eat one).

    I did the leptin reset last summer, only made it about 2 weeks but even that made a HUGE difference for me in cutting out cravings and reducing my dependence on snacking. Best of luck with it! It was such a weird thing to have so much meat in my breakfast, but come to think of it, now that's normal. Also had a major effect on energy levels

    And congrats on the SIL convert! I'm doing the same thing with my mom and just printed her out a bunch of MDA articles. Woot!

    The funny thing is that I've been working on my mother-in-law b/c she's got fibromyalgia. I'm thrilled that SIL is interested and know this will do good things for her health (she's got some pretty significant mental health concerns that she wants to correct without medication - she's doing pretty good with just therapy, but I know diet will go a long way in improving things for her). Hopefully SIL being a convert will help MIL make the switch to get rid of her fibro. She's pretty resistant to the idea of changing her diet so much.

    The biggest thing for me, or rather the biggest incentive for me, is the increase in my mood! I love laughing and am so glad I'm able to do it again!

    Sounds like MIL is the type who might react better to the suggestion of cutting back gradually. I know I've reacted rather negatively (inside, I try to be polite on the outside) to people telling me I should cut out my favourite foods. I figured just because it solved their problem didn't mean it would solve mine. I still feel panicky at the thought of cutting out dairy. It was a combination of testimonies, and the fact that I could just try it for myself without having to sign up for anything or buy a year's supply of supplements or anything like that, that pushed me over the edge. Even so, I eased myself into it a bit.

    Judg, I have been on dairy since the day I was born - 32 years. I found that I enjoy coconut milk more than I enjoy white milk. maybe you could make that switch and then eventually cut out other forms of dairy?

    Leptin Reset Day 2

    Today I feel like garbage. Nothing like a sugar detox/carb detox to make you feel icky! My gut is especially unhappy with me. Luckily, one of my bosses was able to stay in our offce long enough for me to play my turn on 5 Words with Friends games while my gut worked to eliminate some toxins. (TMI??? I thought it was rather poetic! lol) I feel bloated and lethargic and tired and drained and just plain icky. Thank you, Jenn, for making such bad choices this weekend. I wonder if I'm trying to fight something else off too b/c my throat feels a little scratchy like I'm getting a cold.

    I think that I'll take a walk about 11:30 or so. I need some sunshine and radiant heat to warm me up. Maybe it'll help to beat off my ickies.

    I have some very tender spots on my body after my appointment with Dr. Torture yesterday. Her adhesion busting leaves little bruises all over my body. I feel like an apple that has been dropped down the stairs!! My foot feels pretty dang good, though.

    So far today I am 100% carb free (unless you count the one carb in my 3 boiled eggs - how is that even possible??) I plan to remain that way until this evening when I go by the grocery store and make a BAS from the salad bar. I load that puppy up with some awesome turkey and ham and eggs and veggies. I WILL have peas too... you and all your Primal folk can just deal with it. I love peas - especially on salad. I'll dress it up with some olive oil (hopefully that's what is on the bar - the bottles aren't labeled) and some lemon juice. That was pretty yummy yesterday. I've gulped down my vitamins and the yucky salt flush - which is surprisingly better tasting with luke warm water than hot or cold water...

    I have my last session for the graduate class I'm taking tonight. Then I'll be half way through the program. Well on my way of reaching 75% completion before the end of this year. I'll be glad when I'm done done with school. Only 2 semesters and a summer to go. 6 classes and I'm done. I can't wait. I'd like to see if I can swing by the farmer's market and check it out before I get my dinner and go to class. I can eat my salad while in class. They can deal. lol

    I fully intend for today to be a better day nutritionally than yesterday. Last night I broke down and ate 6 squares of my Green & Black dark chocolate with cherry (nom nom nom), then had a handful and a half of dark chocolate chips with raspberries, coconut and too much heavy whipping cream. But... I binged on primalish things, right? That's a huge improvement over previous binges! Man, now I'm craving my G&B chocolate bar... awesome. :-|

    Anyhow, I'm rambling now so I shall close and go see if anyone updated their journal in the last 10 minutes... I also have my final paper to do for class - 12-20 pages... not started. Due Thursday AM... better get crackin', eh?

    Coconut seems to be causing allergy issues, so I am proceeding cautiously here. If I overload my body with unfamiliar foods, it will sometimes develop an intolerance, and I think I might have done it with coconut, which is something I rarely ate before.

    I am sincerely hoping I will never have to cut dairy. I can live with very little milk, but cheese and yogurt? I shudder at the thought... Still, I could very well try a 30-day no-dairy experiment in the future. I'm only 3 weeks into the no-grain experiment, so one thing at a time. I really am quite determined to do everything I can to improve my health, so if at some point the trade-off seems worth it, I will dump dairy too. But not now. I'm only going to eliminate one thing at a time so I get clear signals.

    That makes perfect sense. How else will you know what causes the improvement if you cut a lot of things at once?
