    Aw seriously... you're all way too kind! I just think I dress quite well to suit my shape. And no woman is ever happy with their appearance, no matter what they look like!

    July, where are you going?

    Nothing to report today except that I finally got a good night's sleep last night, I was less hungry today, and my skin suddenly looks amazing! You know the sad thing?

    Oh wow, I didn't realize it's halfway through already. I'm still trying to figure out where June went.

    Hah, if this persists, you'll also start losing weight. Nothing causes weight loss like beta-phenylethylamine--the substance that's released when you first start dating someone you're really attracted to. It's the substance that induces that euphoric feeling of being in love! beta-Phenylethylam... [Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry. 1984] - PubMed - NCBI

    Apparently, you can buy it on Amazon. Haha!

    THe OKC guy: I'll probably meet him again. He kind of pushed a kiss on me, which always annoys me a bit. Ususually if you kiss them on date one, they think it gives them a licence to maul you on date two: which is usually when I'm figuring out if I like them at all. He'll be more proactive than the yoga guy, I'm sure.

    Have you been on any dates lately?
    No dates in a very long time. But I think I'm ready now.... but I wasn't 2 days ago. lol Maybe I'll have some stories to share soon too. Until then, I'll just read about your love life.

    Hah! I don't think it's good to mess with the one chemical that gives you that being in love euphoria though. Imagine if you developed a tolerance to it, you may never be able to fall in love again. That would suck.

    Eww... Didn't think if that.

    The thought of wanting to meet somebody recently has popped into my head bc I know weight loss goes hand in hand. Kind of a silly reason for wanting to date/fall in love. Haha

    Don't worry - I've often thought that Lots of women slim up once they meet a guy. The weight always comes back on for me though.

    Okay, I have to confess that I'm not feeling too hot right now. I mean, on average I'm still feeling better than before: exercising probably five days a week, feeling much more positive etc. But some things have changed for the worst in the last two weeks:

    Sleep
    I'm not sleeping properly again. I've deciphered that if I eat less than 300gs of carbs I don't sleep properly! Doesn't matter what my total calories are. This also coincides with more stress at work, but I'm pretty sure it's the food.

    And I'm not sure if I'm losing weight with the calorie cycling. This morning my hips were at a new low, but as soon as I ate they popped back out. So, I'm potentially losing weight, and definitely losing sleep. To calorie cycle or not? That is the question

    I started counting calories again last week, so I might put up what I've been eating versus how I've been sleeping, to get opinions....

    Stomach
    BMs have been pretty terrible for the last week or so. In that: I've had the runs pretty much every day. It's so annoying: I either can't go at all, or else I don't stop. Fucking IBS! I guess I'll start taking more Aloe Vera juice to see if it helps.

    Bloating
    I'm making headway here. The low milk is working, so I haven't been that bloated lately.

    Today, I discovered that persimmons definitely affect me adversely. A few months ago I ate one and I immediately swelled up. I didn't eat any for months, til Saturday. Swelled up, and had the runs the next day. Ate two for breakfast today: swelled up, had the runs.

    Positives
    - Body is getting firmer
    - Libido is coming back (I think)
    - In general have a lot more energy

    Also, just wanted to share something on

    The power of positive thinking
    Since I got into a good headspace in the last few weeks, lots of positive things have happened. I'm working with an amazing guy, I'm nearly finished a five year project, I started dating again, I cut a very negative draining friend out of my life (sorry if that's harsh). I feel like I've gotten into a rich space within me, and from here good things continue to happen. Really reminds me of how important your perspective is in shaping your life.

    AND - this:

    You should give me some tips. I think we have similar body types, no?? Thin limbs, curvy waist/hips. I only seem to accentuate it (skinny jeans... I know we've discussed this). I know I look best in dresses and skirts, or skinny pants/tights with a long top (or short dress) to cover my thighs.
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
