    Hi Paula! Thanks! I've really enjoyed the Whole30.

    My sinuses feel better already with the new medication. I haven't had any major sinus pressure since Friday, so I'm pretty thrilled, but I would really like to learn the cause so I don't have to make the medication a long term thing. I've been sneezing like crazy this weekend though, so maybe the osteopath who said allergies in the beginning isn't as nuts as everyone believes her to be.

    Looking forward to my meet up with the scale tomorrow. Forgot to weigh all weekend long!

    OH OH OH!! Major NSV!! Saturday I went to the county fair and I only got a pork chop on a stick (grilled and seasoned) rather than loading up on corndogs and elephant ears!! they didn't even tempt me!!! I went in there looking for a pork chop and stuck to my plan b/c thinking of everything else just made my belly cringe! I ended up eating 3 pork chops, though... roughly 6 oz each, but that was all I ate, so I think it would have qualified as a good dinner otherwise. Oh so good.

    Up a lb today... I think it's the fruit. I ate a lot of watermelon yesterday.

    Slept like crap last night. Brought the dogs into the house yesterday b/c it's hot out again. They wander at night and wake me up. I hear their claws on the kitchen floor. Or they get into the garbage. I put the lid on it last night and heard it clammor to the floor about 12:30. Kenna woke twice. I tended to her the first time, but she didn't stay down so Brad went to her and got her to stay down. Then Brady came into our room. Sent him back to his room with Brad as escort. Probably half an hour later Brady was back. Brad hollered at the dogs once and I think he had to peel me off the ceiling b/c it scare the hell out of me. It wasn't a good night for sleeping and as such I'm dragging today. Starting to wake up a bit now, but the drive to work was brutal. I kept wanting to pull over and sleep.

    Day22 of my W30. I'm ready to be done I think. I miss my white potatoes and cheese.

    Feeling unenthusiastic right now. I think it's the sleepiness. Popped my vitamins so with any luck, I'll perk up soon.

    No new number, Tomi. Unless you count going up one lb as being a new number. lol I believe I ate too much fruit yesterday. Lots of watermelon in yesterday's history.

    So, my sister in law started following the PB in May. She has lost 21.5 lbs and you can see it. Especially in her face when she pulls her hair back into a ponytail. She texted me yesterday to tell me she'd just bought a pair of pants in a size 16, which she hadn't worn since high school. She graduated in 2002 (or 2003) I believe. So, for almost 10 years she's been out of that size and finally got back to it. She thanked me again for showing her the PB. I told her she was most welcome and very deserving. Because, quite honestly, I don't care who you are - no one deserves to live in a body they hate, especially when they make valiant attempts to change it, as I've seen my sister-in-law try to do.

    Brad saw the doctor this morning. Since March, he's lost 12 lbs. Pretty exciting! I had no idea he was up to 340 lbs though!! He has started taking the same supplements as me and says he can already feel a difference (after 3 days). I wonder how much of what he's feeling is actually placebo effect, but whatever keeps him taking them. Anyhow, he went to the dr to get his T3 and T4 tested. Dr. did a full blood workup including non-fasting glucose. We'll see how his numbers are in a couple of days. Because of symptoms Tomi listed, I decided he needed his thyroid checked because he's got a lot of the same, plus he's 330 lbs... and he's gained 100 lbs in the last 9 years... in essence, when you consider the time it took and that it averages to about 10 lbs a year, which isn't much per year, but overtime it's been a LOT of extra weight piling on and I'm worried about his health. He's taking a larger role in correcting it though, so that is a plus for sure! I'm proud of him for caring, honestly. It's all downhill from here! Once he cares, it's easy to get him to follow suit.

    Ok, I think that is all. I hope everyone is having a good Monday. I wish it was Friday. lol

    Wow. Excellent news about SIL and DH. Wish I could convince my husband. My weight wobbling this last year has not helped my case.

    I've been trying to get my hubby to join me for months........ no go. He likes his junk food and isn't willing to give it up. He's a tad overweight - but nothing bad. He has a bit of a "gutt" that I'd like him to get off, mostly for health reasons, but honestly, partly cuz it looks bad. Although he eats what I cook when at home, so he's sorta forced to be a little primal.

    MIL has lost 2 1/2 lbs already. Glad it's happening quickly for her. She wants to lose 15 lbs.

    MIL told me tonight that FIL takes thyroid medication and that thyroid dysfunction "runs in the family". After reading "It Starts with Food", I'd have to say that no, it runs in the food... Hoping if DH has a thyroid issue it can be handled with diet and low and slow exercise. I'm convinced it can be and will be running an experiment on him, I think. Might even find an article by Mark about thyroid dysfunction and primal and tag MIL in it. Maybe if her fibro pain goes away, she'll be able to convince him to clean up his diet and cure that thyroid issue (and his vitiligo).

    Time for dinner! Spaghetti squash with the Ultimate tomato sauce I found here. Yummo!!
