    Boy, when I started in here, you had only lost 12 pounds. Or was it 2? Anyway, you've been doing really well since I've been away. Congrats! And family members climbing on board too...

    Good news! No complaints today! lol Just the usual stressors - money, time management, etc...

    Yesterday was a really good day on the food front. It was the official start of the Whole30 and I nailed it. Food was spot on.

    I didn't get any housework done last night - except the usual kitchen cleaning (well, dishes was all I did) b/c dinner took longer than I had expected to prepare so I quickly did dishes while our daughter was in the bath - which she got late b/c dinner took so long.

    Got my Vibrams yesterday. I wonder if they fit properly. Seems tight on my little toe and it's like wrestling a bear trying to get into them b/c the 'sock' is tight. Might have to return them for a size 42 instead of 41. Brad and I are going out for dinner to celebrate his birthday this weekend (of course, he chose Olive Garden... jerk! j/k) and we plan to hit a sporting goods store so I can try on a size 42 to see before I send these back. Since I'm a RRS VIP, I get 90 days to return them.

    Speaking of Olive Garden... they have a fantastic gluten free menu... but I'm scared b/c I really really really like their breadsticks and they make me drool when you add alfredo sauce... and that's precisely what Brad intends to order when we get there. My first real challenge and I'm scared to face it. I know I can do it, I just don't want to. I don't want to fight that fight. I want the parmesan crusted chicken with the fettuccini alfredo and breadsticks! I do! I want the texture and the garlicy punch! *sigh* why couldn't he have picked something like Texas Roadhouse where I can get a big steak, sweet potato and steamed veggies?? I know if I ask him he'll be fine with going to TR, but it's his birthday and he should get to choose where we eat. I'll just have to be strong...

    You can do it! I am going to do my best to avoid eating out for the whole month, which I think will be manageable since that's rare anyway. It's not the cheats that worry me, it's the bad oils.

    Odd. Salt tastes good to me now. I was actually craving salt on my eggs. Make me wonder if my thyroid is speaking out to me. I'm interested in having a full thyroid workup done because my hair is falling out in CLUMPS! It's gross. I have to clean my brush out daily. I have to use Liquid Plummer (or however it's spelled) on my shower drain WAY more frequently than I should (as in, I cleared the drain at some point last week and this week showertime is also bathtime). Heard the first sign of thyroid disfunction is hair loss. I have enough hair that I don't have to worry about bald spots or anything, but the plugged shower drain is rather bothersome. it's gotten to the point where I brush my hair before showering in hopes of getting most of the loose stuff out before getting in the shower. Doesn't seem to make a difference though.

    I have a pap smear scheduled for the 31st. I'll ask her to do the thyroid work up then. Free T3, Free T4, TSH, T3 uptake, etc. If there's a problem, hopefully something homeopathic or naturopathic will be enough to fix the problem.

    Thyroid and iron, I would say. Iron was the cause of my hair falling out last fall. It's still slightly low, but higher than it was (wasn't quite anemic) and the hair loss stopped within a few days of supplementing.

    My iron is ok. I donate blood regularly and I'm consistently at a reading of 12.0 or higher. Because I was at 12.1 last time and unable to donate, I am now taking a StressB+Iron daily just for shits and grins b/c I'm tired of them telling me I can't donate b/c my iron is low by 0.4 points... They said it's likely low b/c my body had just created new red blood cells and that'll cause a slight dip in the iron readings.

    Not overly concerned about it, really. Just annoyed more than anything by the crazy hair loss/clogs. That and they're gross...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure my vibrams are too short. The left one hurts my little toe. I don't think it's a "getting used to it" thing. My toe touches the front of the shoe and the part that hurts is between the toes, as if the toe 'sock' is too short and the fabric is digging into the area between my toes. The right one feels pretty good, except for the feeling that my foot is coming out of the heel cup. I'll go for the next size up, I think, and see how that works. But first, I'll try them on in the store. I ordered a 40, but maybe I need a 41 or even a 42. We will see.

    I've heard the little toe is a problem in these so you're not the first to have to swap. Hope the 2nd pair do the trick. I haven't been tempted by them, but you never know.

    I am going to find a store this weekend that sells them and try on the different sizes. Hopefully I find a size that works. If not, I'll exchange them for a different style of shoe - maybe a barefoot runner without toes. Like New Balance or Merrill or something.

    I kind of wonder about the long term effects of spreading the toes like that...

    Jenn,

    I just read most all of the 93 pages of this journal. First, congrats on the 32# lost, that is a great achievement. Also what a fantastic achievement to be able to come off the Lexapro, great.

    I noticed that you seem to really like berries with coconut and whipped cream. I make the following:

    Put two cans of full fat coconut milk in the fridge over night. Open them the next day and skim the cream off the top of both cans into your mixing bowl and whip. In a double boiler melt some dark chocolate (at least 70% or higher) and add a little raw honey depending on the bitterness of the chocolate. Fold into the coconut cream and serve over berries. Better yet put the mousse into the fridge overnight to allow it to set better. Serve over berries. Simply amazing.
