“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Well said, Megan, and congratulations on such a tremendous weight loss!
Megan, Thanks for sharing. Awesome!
I am Katherine and I am here because I was losing weight on a low calorie diet that turned out to be low in protein, but as I started to exercise more I found my recovery was poor and I lost lean body mass. Eating more protein gave me back my energy, but eating even more has consistently resulted in weight gain or stall no matter how few calories I consume. I am back losing weight now. Or at least I feel I am, but I don't have a scale on the road. In any case, my pants are not tighter. When I get home on Friday I will go back into ketosis and finish off my weight loss.
Goal: size 8, a size I have never been before. Presently: 10 or 12, or a M or L, depending on the brand.
Tonight I am making dinner for my daughter and son-in-law. I made an SCD hazelnut cake, and pot roast. Since I am cooking I got to leave out the potatoes.

Gave in to the frosted sugar cookies... they're by far my favorite cookie EVA... *hangsheadinshame* I hate working in this office b/c people are ALWAYS bringing in cookies and cupcakes and all that jazz b/c my boss absolutely loves them and they want to butter her up. The problem is, instead of just bringing her ONE cupcake or cookie to butter her up, they bring a DOZEN!
Anyhow... my tummy hurts now. And later, so will my gut. (have no fear... I had already lost my ketosis by eating entirely too many coco-chocs the other night).
Perhaps if you bring your own cookies. I made chocolate chip cookies from almond flour, eggs, and a little butter, hardly any sweetening. They were "sweetened" with a few dark chocolate chips. They were tasty and satisfying, but not addictive.
I ate three. I went back for a fourth but my tummy hurts so badly now from all the sugar that I walked away. The crunch of a perfectly baked cookie is not worth it. And to be honest, I ate them too fast to tell you if they were good or not. It was more a texture binge than anything else.
I haven't had any measureable sugar since Christmas so the sugar is really not making me happy. *sigh*
And the gut ramifications I'm sure to experience later tonight or tomorrow have me concerned as well - but what's done is done. Damn these holidays! Why must our society use baked goods to celebrate? Why not chocolate covered strawberries or something?

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
Just pick up and move on, jenn. Not worth fussing over. I was just sitting here fighting a battle against potato chips. Those are my comfort. Mom always has them in the house. It has mostly passed now. I was just sitting here think how I may have some at a social event this saturday. Then I thought I probably wont want them by then anyway. Besides. I know I would not just be able to have a handful. It would be the bag. So it's easier to just not go there.
The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.
