    Judg -- I've been gone from the forum for a few days due to "life" and yesterdays fishing trip.......... I'm so sorry to hear you were sick - but happy its passed. I would guess food poisoning too. The symptoms sound like it anyway. Glad you are feeling better!

    147 is awesome! I'll bet you're dipping into those new cloths to have a look see of what fits! I went through my closet and found tops that I had purchased 2 years ago when I had lost 50 pounds - a few I had never quite made it into - still had that tags on. So, I get to go closet shopping too! Not to mention all capri's and cute tops that I wore for only those 2 weeks, and then started gaining weight again and couldn't get into them. UGH! The things we do to ourselves.

    I understand your fatigue and exhaustion I can control the fibro pain, and most of the other symptoms by keeping my diet as close to 100% as possible -- but it doesn't do a whole lot for the fatigue if I over do it. However --- I do have a lot more stamina than I did before going primal. I haven't figured out yet how to get that surge of energy that doesn't go away, as some people on here talk about --- but I'm still looking. The higher fat thing was supposed to do it - but I haven't been consistant enough for that fat burning machine thing to kick into gear. I have trouble in the summer not eating fruit --- especially watermelon, which really ramps up the carbs! So, my low carb, medium protein and high fat has be derailed a few times. I think to get the full effect you are supposed to stay the course pretty religiously for a couple weeks. I don't think I'll be buying anymore melons now that summer is nearly over, and boating season is coming to a close. Maybe the next couple weeks I can give it a better attempt.

    As for walking -- I totally agree that it is the best form of movement -- as God designed us so perfectly for doing just that!

    Thanks, Tomi. Yes, I'm pretty much back to normal now. My appetite didn't completely return till last night when it kept me awake. I finally got up and had a cup of turmeric tea, with stevia, mind you. I'd already had some honey in my espresso earlier and a bit of chocolate, and didn't want to overdo the sugar. That put me right to sleep.

    My energy levels have evened out quite a bit, which is nice. If only they'd even out a bit higher...

    Anyway, yesterday was a day of light, although good eating, so I wasn't too surprised to see another new number on the scale this morning. 146.6. This has been a very good month, weight-wise, despite the family feasts. Good thing recently gained weight falls off easily, because my clothes were tighter after those two days for sure.

    And yes, I have been hitting my reward drawer a little more often. An unlined black jacket, a white top, some rust-coloured pants. Hmmm, they would go pretty well together. I'll have to try that one of these days.

    Anyway, I'd better get moving. I'm going to try to make it to church this morning. Have a great Sunday, everyone.

    LOL! Yup, that one really struck me when I first read it.

    Yesterday was feast day. Today's weight is definitely not down. LOL! Oh well, that was plenty for one week. Being careful today though; I don't want yesterday's feast to get stuck on me.

    Coll, before and after pics on page 52.

    My energy is at a higher level, for sure. But I'm also more careful, so my activity levels haven't increased a whole lot. Which is, for the time being, probably the wisest thing to do. Yesterday I pushed myself out the door - and did quite a bit of walking - despite a bad night's sleep, and I am NOT crushed by fatigue today. I'm not doing much of anything either, but at least I feel okay at rest, which is something of a victory.

    Thanks, Tomi, Coll. My weight is up a bit now, of course. That always happens when I've been trending down and then start eating a bit more again. But that's okay. What is a bounce up now used to be a bounce down...

    BTW, Coll, congratulations on your own progress! Is that all from eating primal?

    Made some clam chowder today, which means I ate about 1/2 a white potato and about 1/2 a carrot in my soup. A little carbier than my normal fare, but I figure it's an acceptable diversion. I put fewer root vegetables in than I used to, and of course, no dinner rolls to go with it. Very nice for the cool weather we've been having. Back to summer for the next couple of days though. It's a good thing the house has had a chance to cool off so thoroughly.

    My vegetarian daughter is coming for supper tomorrow. I think I'll make that carrot walnut "cake" that was featured ages ago on MDA and a big salad with feta to go with it. That should cover the two of us pretty well. Either that or a crustless quiche.
