    Paula, fantastic insights! I honestly believe that sleep is the key.
    Thx - any suggestions to stop cravings late at night?? (Weak point) - Since this is my first week back, I feel a bit low on energy, so have only been doing intervals (walk/jog/sprints) and not much intense exercise like weights. Guess that is normal while your body adjust.

I never thought I would see this weight ever! I broke the dread 203 hump. 203 has always been the weight that I reach and then something bad happens in my life that adds stress and I start to eat emotionally and throws everything out of whack. I'm almost to my next mini goal of 199.

    @Paula, with all the stressors you've had this past week, you're still kicking butt! WTG!!!!!

    @mks It looks as if you have just lowered your macros for NK to be in your range for fat loss. I would still give it another couple of weeks and see what happens from there. Rome wasn't built in a day and you can't expect change to happen rapidly. Give it time.
    Congrats :-)

Also, just on a side note, I have been having vivid, bizarre dreams this week. Anyone else experience this while on Keto?

    Same here. Maybe we could get the goblins from The Hobbit to star in the endorsements.

    Thanks! Congrats on the loose clothes. Belt time! And yes, I have been having really vivid dreams lately. Normally, I don't remember my dreams at all period.

    I really appreciate the responses ladies. I don't do dairy except HWC in my espresso in the morning. No sugar (very little fruit even) either. I get so paranoid when the weight starts going backwards. I do agree with each of you that it might be a little too soon to freak out. The protein/fat ratio is also something that could use some work. I'm on MFP under my same sign on as here if anyone feels like taking a look.

    Get some L-glutamine powder and put up to a tsp under your tongue. Seriously. It tells your brain it is getting the glucose that it is craving.

    "Due to its ability to cross the blood brain barrier,L-glutamine is a wonderful way of providing glutamic acid to the brain. Many people think that, like other amino acids, this provides more neurotransmitters to the brain, but this is not the case. Actually, L-glutamine provides the glutamic acid that the brain uses as fuel (the only other substance the brain uses for fuel is glucose). Glutamine can block cravings for alcohol as well as sugar. This key benefit can be used in individuals as a diet aid. Taking one capsule or one quarter teaspoonful of L-glutamine at the onset of sugar or alcohol cravings has been shown to deter these feelings. This may not work in all individuals, but the non-toxic nature of this harmless food additive and the many other benefits that can be derived from this supplement make it worth trying."

    Hey, adavison, I got your request. I looked on my phone after seeing your note and it wasn't there. Just logged into MFP on the computer and there you were!
