    Sorry you're hurting I agree with you on the unwanted foods thoughts. I feel the same about a couple things that used to be my "go to" snacks when I just wanted to mindlessly eat something. Once the habit it broken its easy to live without. I'm still working on a couple things........... hoping to break the habit soon.

    I have to say, I'm VERY impressed with how well you've been doing with this WholeWhatever. You have been sticking to it at basically 99.9999% compliance, which is impressive enough in and of itself, but you are going well beyond 30 days at this point (a month and a half now). You are losing weight again. You seem pretty happy too. I feel a little proud, even though I had nothing to do with it! You are doing amazing work, Jenn!
    Brad mentioned that my mood had improved since adopting the Whole30 too. I'm so glad I pushed past 30 days. I think the extra 18 days made a world of difference in how I am around food and how I feel in general. I have noticed my mood was improved too. And not so improved since Saturday - I'm cranky in the morning again. So I think I'll continue with whole30 guidelines and do like an 80/20 thing with it - limiting dairy and trying to stay away from sweets in general.

    So, I just went to another office to find someone for work related stuffs and found someone in the room that wasn't supposed to be there. The room I went into was a secure room (think very large bank vault with cubicles) where they handle classified information. I badged in and then walked into the room and realized there was a guy there delivering office supplies who doesn't have clearance to be in the room and was left unescorted. He was waiting for someone who wasn't there - just standing patiently by the door for her to return - not doing anything 'wrong' in essense, except he's not allowed in that room unescorted and he's not allowed to have a cell phone in that room. He said a soldier let him him. I took care of what he needed to do and escorted him out, then looked for someone to report the incident to. I talked to another civilian who said that kind of stuff happens all the time b/c no one takes the security of that room seriously - they even let the vacuum lady wander around unescorted. I found the soldier who let him in (a MAJOR!! SERIOUSLY! A MAJOR!!) and reminded him that unless they have clearance, they're not to be left unescorted, they're not to have cell phones in the room and the red light needs to be turned on so everyone in the room knows to put their classified information away. The major is a new guy - like only a week or two old in regard to his assignment here, and he may not have been properly briefed on the procedures. I'm going to say something to the XO so they can address it. I don't want to get the major in any trouble and I hope no trouble comes of it, but during their initial training here, soldiers (and civilians alike) need to be informed of the procedures for our secure rooms. Complacency and trusting those that might rightfully deserve it but who don't have clearances can be a terrible terrible thing if the wrong information is seen. Ok... that is all. No more lectures on national security.

    Yay! So happy to read about your disinterest in dairy after your Whole30. Excited for that.

    I am giving up dairy again. Going back to Whole30 rules. I have gained back up to 179 since giving up my whole30. The only foods I have reintroduced are white potatoes (I had two wedges that were 1/6 of a potato each) and dairy - cream and sliced cheese (I know sliced cheese is less than stellar - it was on a burger). My ring is still loose so I don't know where the 4 lbs have landed, but they need to get gone again. I think I am going to pretty much live Whole30 and make allowances for dairy on a rare occasion (like when Brad begs and pleads for chicken scampi or chicken cordon bleu casserole).

    I don't believe the small amount of white potatoes I ate yesterday contributed to the 2 new pounds. I think the Kraft Singles contributed - not that Kraft Singles is real cheese...

    Peeled an orange today to find that it totally sucks, so I tossed it. So annoying to go to so much work for a piece of fruit to have it taste bland or flat out nasty. Thank you conventional fruit growers for picking your fruit too early and preventing it from actually tasting good.

    Calf and foot are feeling good today - calf more so than the foot, but this foot has been giving me fits for a while. It's not something I can't run through - doesn't hurt when I run. I will bring it to Dr. Lake's attention when I see her next.

    Forecast says it'll be 75 degrees at noon when I run. Perfect. Let's hope the weather people are actually RIGHT for once.

    I haven't tried my wedding dress on yet. And won't til I get back to 175. So, gotta get these 4 lbs gone. And then we'll do pics so y'all can see what I look like in it. Maybe I'll post comparison pics. That would be fun.

    I'm very curious about the fit of your dress! I wonder how different it might be from having more muscle (presumably) now.

    Jenn, I plan to continue to live w30 too and just have dairy and processed meats on special occasions. Like at a party when the only viable food is on the cheese platter. Artificial and real sweeteners will stay gone as well.

    I salute you for going to Whole30 so...whole-heartedly. You're doing great things for your body. I wish I could do it(but not enough to actually DO IT, I guess).

    I determined a few minutes ago that dairy and I are no longer friends, which makes me sad. It's a once in a while food now.
