    OMFG this may not be better than sex, but it certainly is just as good! I made it earlier today and literally stood at the sink for 5 minutes, scraping every last bit out of the blender with a rubber spatula. (I used organic unsweetened cocoa powder.)

    So, 2 full weeks in the books. Weigh in is tomorrow ( Monday ).

    I must say that I was hoping for a little more weight loss, but, OK, it wasn't bad.... I'm not a kid anymore. Metabolism is slower. I'm slower.

    Here are some things I noticed after 2 weeks:

    1. Regardless of the scale, clothes are starting to fit better. In fact, 1 shirt is now too big.

    2. I have developed some oily skin on my face.

    3. I feel like I have bad breath..... so maybe I am actually in ketosis this time, but I doubt it. I have never been in it before, even with less carb intake.

    4. I am eating and enjoying more veggies.

    5. Not as hungry, but still get hunger pangs

    6. Less, cravings for the things I shouldn't eat, but they are still there, and sometimes they are very strong cravings.

    7. I have been 99.8% cheat free. The worst thing I did was take a dab of peanut butter icing... literally less than 1/4 tsp.

    8. I now like almond butter. I used to dislike it.

    9. I know I said ( complained ) about the cost, but it seems we are breaking even, as we haven't gone out to eat. We used to spend $80 - $150 a week doing that. Thing is, though, my family likes going out to eat. They won't put up with this much longer, LOL.

    10, I'm proud of myself, even though I was hoping for more weight loss.

    So halfway through the 30 days. That said, I have committed myself to staying on this until January, until I can see the results of my blood work. I already know this is helping my diabetes. My BS numbers are better. But I need to see the rest of them before I have a chance at being less afraid of eating this way.

    Two weeks down, and hopefully 30 more years to go.

    Well today was weigh in day, and I came in at 274.4. I guess that is really pretty good,all things considered - I was as low as 272, but also read back as high as 280. So let's call it 11 pounds in 2 weeks. respectable, but not magnificent. It was magnificent when I was down to 272 during week 1!!!!!

    So today starts day 15. I would love to get a little more than 4 more pounds off by next Monday, as that would have me under 270 pounds.

    I've been reading your journal since, well, I think you were on day 3. Congratulations on raising two amazing daughters and for starting this journey and the progress you've made.

    I've been doing primal half-arsed for the past four months. You've inspired me to quit the booze (remaining holdout) and get my butt in gear and do it right. I've got 20lbs I'd like to see disappear (down 66 with other methods).

    I subscribe to your journal and while I may not comment often I will be reading.

    Cheers to continued success!

    Thank you yourdebness.

    Well, another good day. No cheating.

    Also, I found a place locally for raw milk at one farm, and grass fed meats at another farm. And he has pigs, which s awesome since I like to throw a pig roast every year. Nothing exciting for dinner. I just had leftovers.

    And in about 20 minutes I leave to take a course on basic web site design. I want to start doing some of my own website design for my kids DJ business. Shameless plug here: Bubble Parties. I have an updated business that replaces that called PBnJ Parties..... I want to make my own site for that.

    Parachute Games .... Bubble Parties.... and Jump Parties - all rolled into one.

    This has nothing to do with primal, but I want to vent here.

    What exactly is the point of putting presidential elections signs in your yard?

    OK, I kind of get it on the signs where the candidates are not well known. Maybe it gives a little boost to name recognition of election day...... but WTH is the point of putting them out on your lawn for presidential elections? Everybody knows the candidates. And I can't exactly see someone thinking "" Hey, Bill is voting for Mitt, I guess I will vote for him too!" My next door neighbor has a Romney / Ryan sign, which, IMO is especially dumb, as we live on a cul - de - sac, and there are 4 other homes here, all owned by republicans. I'm the only non republican on my street. And I am an independent.

    It annoys me in that these signs are like litter to me. they should be thrown in the trash for BOTH SIDES. I don't want your political leanings in my face every time I drive into my driveway.

    Interesting study (I think by Pew, but I can't quite recall) that the presence of yard or window signs makes your neighbors more likely to vote (for whomever they are going to vote for, regardless of what your sign says).
