    HELLOOOOO (Said in my best Mrs. Doubtfire voice)

    Well, it's been almost 3 months and after the 55 lbs originally lost, I gained 15 back. Mostly from going totally off the rails. So here I am once again, staring into the holiday season and winter with a bit of dread. So hoping that over the next few weeks I can turn this baby around again, drop the 15 and set myself up for a solid winter.

    The Plan. Essentially the same as before, focusing on the next 40 days which will take me through the holidays. Eating Primal, doing my bodyweight exercises 3x a week, and maintaining a solid sleep schedule.

    Spending time on the forum was helpful and posting daily updates was definitely helpful, so that will begin again. Also look forward to reconnecting.

    LOL! Welcome back. Glad you came back before you packed it all back on. You're way ahead of where you were at the beginning.
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    Day 01 - 20.Nov.12

    It's good to be back. Day 1 went well, though I'm dreading carb flu, which hit me hard first time. I'm already starting to feel a bit headachey, so have decided to preemptively incorporate some fruit juices and dried fruit the first week or two, which helped with the transition last time.

    Found out this morning there is a 5lb discrepancy between weighing myself in the basement or in the upstairs bathroom, using the same scale. Which is weird because both have hard, level floors. Since historically I've weighed in the bathroom, I'm sticking with that. Though it does have me wondering... what is my real weight?

    SLEEP
    6.5 hr, alarm

    FOOD
    B - 3 egg omelet w/ chicken, red pepper, cheese | banana | apple cider
    L - Spaghetti squash w/ tomato sauce, chicken sausuage, peppers, onions, mushrooms | banana
    D - NY strip steak w/ sauteed onions, mushrooms, peppers | acorn squash w/ butter | yogurt w/ berries
    Snacks - yogurt w/ berries | 2 clementines | banana | almonds | apple cider

    EXERCISE
    20 min walk

    Okay, your signature made me laugh.

    I wonder about my real weight too. Everybody tells me that our scale is a flatterer, so I can probably add a couple of pounds to get closer to the truth. Not that it really matters all that much...
