    Congrats everyone on your W30 success so far. I am checking in to report that I am not doing an official W30 this month. My goal is to make 30 days clean Primal without grains & sugar of course & without binging. Once I have done that, I will try W30 again. Currently, I am using a small amount of dairy, artificial sweeteners in coffee and weighing daily.

    I am choosing to eat VLC and I am happy to report that I am 6 days binge free and my weight is coming down 1-2 lbs/day. I had bloated up to 35lbs above my lowest Primal wt. So, I am losing weight that I had already lost before.

    Good Luck to you all!

    Day 8 = another good one. Went to the gym to do another round of lifting heavy things and this afternoon I've been doing baking for work tomorrow (birthday gathering for a couple of work people, I felt like baking and volunteered myself), I'm amazed by the fact I had no interest in taste testing the rocky road I made. I did try 1 of the cookies I made (ones from Everyday Paleo), all the ingredients are Whole30 friendly so it's all good. Dinner tonight is going to be the slow-cooker coconut ginger pork from this site and kale.

    Wow, sounds amazing. It was a big spinach night over at our place, as well. A little BBQ steak, spinach with some bacon on top. Good to go! I always have that slightly metallic feel in my mouth when in Ketosis so I'm always brushing my teeth. I think Paleo Lifestyle is good for my oralhealth, as well! woot woot!

    ladies and gentleman i believe i have not only met, but exceeded my below 300 lb mark already. i was naughty and got on the scale this morning and saw a very pleasing number. i don't want to tell anyone because i am scared i imagined it. so i haven't told a soul yet - aside from you, now!
    QQEMOKITTY: Now just stop that -- because you're making me all teary out here on my patio. I couldn't be happier for you. Remember to keep breathing, keep walking, keep the positive talk going, and now visualize and document your next, achievable milestone. When something is working, and you are seeing results, keep doing what you are doing. There's no magic to this --- it's just takes goal setting, and the tenacity of a primal goddess (of which we are all).

    I woke up this morning, still in ketosis (I bought ketosis sticks yesterday from the drug store). I always like to make sure that I think I am where I really am. I know I have felt all the symptoms of ketosis, but nothing says it more like a ketosis stick. I started my morning with a bullet coffee (2 coffess + 1/2 cup coconut milk), and will now go straight through until dinner at around 4pm. I'm aiming for another 10km walk today ---- I did 9km yesterday. I love the walks because it clears my mind and gives me time to think about all the good things in my life -- my dog, my rabbit, my friends and family, of course. My daughter (21 yrs old), just moved to London, England and I'm missing her a little. My other two sons are here in Toronto, just started their 1st week back to University/College. There's a great saying that goes: "All is as it should be" ---- and I'll take that! ps. Had to put away 2 more pairs of Linen pants because my they are sagging in the bum -- woot woot. Let's keep going, ladies!

    Well, I made it to Whole5 before I crashed and burned! There has been a lot of work-related stress and unhappiness, and I'm resigning from my job tomorrow and starting a new one on the 24th. I've had a history of stress eating leading to binging when I'm under a lot of pressure. Good news is that I haven't done any of that- I've been gnawing on lettuce leaves and cherry tomatoes from my plants outside, or going for walks, where 6 months ago I would have eaten way too much of something starchy and then hated myself.

    So in the interest of mental health, I'm sticking to most of the goals I laid out earlier and will be back again to try Whole30 in October! By then I'll be mostly settled in at the new job and hopefully feeling much better about everything.

    -ZERO grains
    -Close to or under 50 carbs per day
    -Cut out dairy until I'm only eating homemade Greek yogurt
    -One piece/serving of fruit per day
    -Learn to get a good balance of omega 3 / omega 6
    -Drink only water, coconut water, tea, and coffee
    -Lift heavy things 2-3 times per week
    -Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night

    That is absolutely fantastic. Congratulations to you. Keep eating healthy and keep slow moving. Think of it this way, you are 60% of the way to 290lbs ------- Keep it rolling.

    It's a wise person who analyzes the situation and makes changes according to what's going on in your life. You are still eating better than the majority. Do what you can and be kind to yourself. Good luck on you new job -- exciting!

    Day 14 of Whole 30 *(3) - Still in ketosis

    Day 14 of 30: (Sat, Sept 14th)
    Calories: 709
    Fat: 61gm - 70%
    Protein 37.2gm - 22%
    Carbs: 15.7gm - 8%
    Alcohol: 0
    weight: 149.4 (-5lbs) ---

    Couple of observations for today:

    1. Started with bullet coffee (2 coffees with 1/2 cup coconut milk)

    2. Nothing else to dinner: Steak, Caesar Salad, Zuccheni, Mushrooms sauteed in butter, 3 tsp's high fat greek yogourt & 6 raspberries + 1 slice of french brie, double cheese.

    3. Although the ratios are in line for ketosis (70% fat, Protein 22% and 9% carbs), I feel that I'm still not consuming enough carbs. I do need to increase both fat and protein. I think I'll try to have an extra few hardboiled eggs tomorrow and a bit more high fat cheese.

    4. I have no cravings; I have an abundance of energy; keto stix indicate ketosis.

    I'll be measuring myself tomorrow and we'll see where the scales are. Hoping to still be around 149 or just below. Would be nice to stay in the 140's versus bouncing into the low 150's.

    Off for my 10km nightly walk. Have a great evening, everyone!

    Thanks so much for the kind words! I'm still staying mostly primal and feeling really great, but need to leave myself room for slips over the next couple of weeks- and I'm sure there will be farewell and welcome parties or lunches which would be difficult to navigate on Whole30, especially when trying to fit in with a new group of coworkers.

    I do think the new job will help me with PB. It's in the corporate office for a company that makes meat products- not organic/grassfed, but employees are asked to test new products so there is potential for free bacon! Also deli meats, ham, and pork. It's also a higher salary which will help me add more organic and grassfed into my diet, where before it wasn't within my budget. And there is a branch of my gym in walking distance from the office, so I can lift heavy things while avoiding rush hour traffic!
