Congrats pebbles, 20 days binge free is awesome. I used to binge as well and I know how strong the cravings can be. :-)
I weigh every day I have since I hit my highest weight, 50lbs ago. Weighing daily helps me see how even a little cheat can upset my progress. It also helps keep me honest about where I am when I was 225 I didn't realize how much I had put on. Not weighing myself lets me claim ignorance.
Last night took an 800 ibuprofen and drank a cup of BP tea as well as a cup of broth (my daughter took half as she thought it smelled and tasted good-weird). This headache could be the cold, carb flu, electrolyte imbalance, I do not know. What is weird is that my wrists (both of them) were numb and tingly. This morning, woke with headache, took another 800, headache on the way out but one wrist is kinda achey. GRR.. That all being said though.. Rocked my macros!! Day 7 clean!!

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
When I weighed daily I tended to tweak the program if my weight went up, especially when it went up the day after a particularly clean day. Changing things daily is not good for the body. I need to get to a place where I am comfortable with my eating plan. I may go to a weekly weigh in eventually. Especially if I get the blood ketone monitor. But the truth is, I am pretty sure that the number on the scale is the worst indicator of my fat stores. I need to use other methods.
Ez2cy, my after dinner "something" if I'm feeling the need/desire for a party in my mouth is: 2T of softened cream cheese with a touch of sweetener and perhaps a teaspoon of very dark high quality unsweetened cocoa powder. I find the fat satisfies something, as does the sweet. While I would love a tub of it, a little really does help.
Iam a popcorn addict, I've had it once since starting primal. I have to keep it as something out of the house that can only happen once in a blue moon. If I open the door to making it acceptable, I will do it daily. Abstaining is the only thing that works for me. That and seeing the scale vey morning!
