    Weigh in this morning was frustrating - I got several different readings on my digital scale. However, so I have a "standard" I will just pick the highest one: 159.8.

    This is where my body seems to settle pretty comfortably no matter what I eat, so it will be interesting to see if the CO can affect YEARS of a very stubborn set point. Ideally I would like to get to 140 but I'll take 145!

    More to come ...

    Msj-
    Super smart to get that thyroid tested. I had a lot of symptoms but my regular doc would not give me meds b/c I was "within normal range" even tho at the low end. A specialist did give me Armour thyroid as his position is "what's normal is what's normal for you". I've read sev'l places that our norms may be too stringent. Just mentioning this as they should, IMHO, treat the symptoms & not be so focused on that lab range.

    Had a lovely breakfast and didn't get to my first shot until 12. I'm now off for a haircut which I am in desperate need of.
    Starting Weight: 197.5
    Current Weight: 123
    Lost 75# eating low carb (20-40 g) and then MDA primal low carb. Tried many other options but only LC helped me lose weight and improve health. Now at a good weight, I find my body can tolerate a few more carbs but rarely go over 100 g.

    That's very impressive !!!

    May I ask if you are close to your goal? I know that results may vary based on where we are on our journey.

    Regardless, kudos on a job well done!

    I've found that the AS waxes and wanes depending on absolutely nothing.

    I could be going along swimmingly and all of a sudden have a huge 3 day
    hunger spell and have to do FOUR shots of oil those days.

    Then it's back to an even keel for a good long time.

    Finally weighed today and it was 120.6 - so that's the new "setpoint" I guess because
    I've been bouncing around 120.2 to 122.0 for a long time.

    Today I had my coffee, later an oil shot, and now just finished a green juice that I made
    (not a smoothie, a juice from the juicer) with kale, spinach, carrot, romaine and cucumber.

    Tasted like cut grass smells, but with a whack of vitamins.

    Will eat something decent in a bit, then another oil shot, and then FINALLY I can
    go and walk my part time dog job. After two weeks! So that'll be nice, and I'll get
    some steps in as well.

    For those of you looking for regular ol' CO, I bought another tub of it today at
    Costco, even though it took a million years to find it... grrrr.

    Anyway, 78oz for 22 dollars. Sweet deal. Sure you gotta plug your nose and all, but you
    can't beat that price, so I don't care. I'm jusssst about done with my first tub.

    I'm in a "not so hungry" phase right now, thankfully. And the Stupid Shit isn't even
    calling my name. But ovulation should be kicking in here in about 4 days, so I'd better
    gird my loins for that. Not only do I bloat up 400lbs, but I'm also ravenous.

    The joy of it all....eyeroll.

    Msj - hope your blood panel answers lots of questions!

    Janie..I dont count cals or macros. Haven't for a couple of years. Whole 30 put a stop to that. I may do it just out of curiosity. I have my 3 shots of oil. Usually a mug of bone broth when I feel empty. Then maybe a scrambled egg or a few slices of leftover dinner for lunch. Then I have 6-8 oz of meat (estimation) and a big pile of veggies for dinner.

    Julia you crack me up. As in I have to be careful what is in my mouth when I read your posts.

    I agree with the waxing and waning thing.

    Sweet neighbor just came over for a homemade Komboocha lesson. She brought mac and cheese as a gift. Gak
