Thanks for the encouraging words! I do want to see a difference. Three years ago I was about thirty pounds less then all the hormonal crap started. If I hadn't seen that low weight recently I wouldn't be as discouraged now.
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

Alright honeybuns, you are most of the way there! This is easy! Pull up your account, hit track food, hit add food under breakfast and put in coconut oil (with your brand name too) in the search, it will come up with choices (less if you include the brand name). then you just have to decide on an amount and click add. If you eat the same thing for breakfast every day, hit quick tools and you can add it as a meal (it will be under my meals) and just one click will get you there tomorrow. Things you use all the time will show up in most used or recent. Really it is so much less stressful than not knowing where your macros are or how you managed to put on or take off weight. This will be very helpful as you are trying to figure out what works and what doesn't, you can do it!
i'm on a roll, kids! I've walked 5 days in a row now! To date my longest stretch is 14 days so I'm going for the record breaker! Yesterday I also started on the bowflex again - arms only for now. My legs get a good work out on the 2.25 mile walks. I do have a bad shoulder though - so I'm a bit limited on mobility on that side. I think I have a rotor cuff going bad. Sucks getting older!
getting old is not for sissies!
I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2009, I always forget about it. I'm just really confused about adrenal fatigue; a lot of websites I've looked at say to not workout when you have it, but if I don't workout I don't lose weight. Also, I'm not supposed to do IF, but when I stopped IF my weight stopped dropping. Initially when I was doing IF I was only eating about 900 calories a day because I just wasn't hungry, but now I know I need way more than that.
I haven't started taking anything for adrenal fatigue and I don't want to take anything until I know for sure what's going on. From what I've read your cortisol can either be too high or to low, but the symptoms are the same. Until I know where my problem is I don't want to treat it. I really hate taking any supplements unless I know for sure I need them and know the proper way to take them. Also, I used to have low iron, but I eat mostly red meat and have included liver in my diet so my iron levels should be ok by now.
