    I have only been clean since Sunday, so today is technically my 5th day. It has taken me since the 9th (which is when I started) to get the hang of my macros and how to balance them. But I feel good!

    Here is an odd one for you...today I wore a skirt to work (that's not the odd part I almost always wear skirts), it is old, years old, just a plain black skirt. anyway, I am sitting at my desk and go to scratch my back and the elastic waist band is gapping. In other words not only is it not at all stretched, it is not even touching my waist in the back. Elastic, mind you.

    I've been clean since the 21st. No more cake, no more sugar. I am finding that today I am drinking water like it's going out of style.

    Results for January.

    Weight - 4 kg (8.8 lbs)
    Waist - 7 cm (2.75 inches)
    Hips - 5 cm (1.57 inches)

    Not huge results but I am happy with them.

    Yeah, I saw my neurologist again on Monday which meant blood work...
    Because I take a medication that can totally screw that stuff up too.
    And shocker!
    Mine is still PERFECT.

    Carry on.
    Great!

    When you got over the Carb-flu,did you just wake up one morning and feel great or was it more of a gradual thing?

    Meaning,did you feel a bit better each day/week?

    Hope this isn't a dumb question!
    I think I just woke up one day feeling really good.

    I think this is a good idea.

    I think ill have to try BP tea.

    the Russian Circus left my town several years ago.......... y'all have my sympathies. Now instead of monthly pain and nastiness for a week - I get nightly hot flashes! womanhood is so much fun! I'm going to be trying Vitex and I'm hoping it will curb those hot flashes a bit. Some articles say it makes them better - some say it makes them worse. I'm gonna try and see what happens.
    YAY great about your rings! Mine don't fit.

    I'm excited as well! I've had this stack of "goal pants" for a long time, basically I whipped out jeans of all different sizes, larger to smaller and since I got rid of grain and sugar, I've slowly worked my way through them. They are markers of progress. Tonight I put the ones on the bottom of the pile on, without even having to lay on my bed to get them buttoned lol. Don't get me wrong, they are snug, but a year ago, they wouldn't have fit on one leg lol! They are CK's, size 7. Like a 90's size 7. I think we bought them when I was like 12. "Grew" out of them and never wore them again. I think once those fit me well, I will be about where I should be. Oh, the closer I get to my correct weight, the more impatient I become!
    Goal pants are a great idea. Ive been considering buying a pair of jeans (i have not worn jeans since I was a teenager.

    So, I guess today is report the numbers day?
    Meh.

    4 lbs., that 's it.
    And I'm good with that... pretty normal for me.
    I wanted 5, and it should have been 5, but my son is stressing the crap out of me and I've been eating a bit extra having that in conjunction with the Russian Circus coming to town. Not bad foods mind you... not even sweet foods... just some extra calories... so I'm on "hold" still.

    It is what it is.
    Hopefully I will stop feeling stressed by his crap soon, because I do not think that his crap is going to stop at all.
    I'm trying very hard to be zen about it.
    It's his path, let him walk it... *breathe*
    But then my brain starts ticking and turning and I don't sleep and I worrrrrrrryyyyyy. *grrrrrrrr*

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Is it time to do some serious lifting of heavy things?
