    4:25 pm. Really hungry this morning, put it off until 9:30. Wasn't too hungry the rest of the day, I think because I allowed myself an extra ounce or 2 of protein/fat when I did eat. Digestive system is unhappy and has been since I overate fudge last night. I'll try to remember to take a probiotic and papaya enzyme to straighten things out. The plan is to indulge in tea this evening rather than fudge. Try and give my body a break from fudge for awhile (if I can control myself). A big salad with a bowl of chicken soup sounds good for supper. We'll see. Started 10 mg Lexapro today, anxiety keeping me awake at night, just has to end.

    4:05 pm: Hunger level early morning (4 or 5 am) was definitely an 8, and escalated to a 9, on my scale of 10 being going to pass out if I don't eat now, by the time I ate at 6 am. I was thirsty and had to get up a couple of times to drink some water... yep, lots of sodium in that PF Chang's meal. Not too hungry though after my 6 am feed. Digestive system still trying to stabilize, it could either be food (fudge the other day and restaurant items) or it might be Lexapro. I do remember having some digestive issues when I first started Lexapro years ago.

    4:53 pm: Woke up well rested, feel good despite cramps today. Not very hungry at all though. Watching "Weight of the Nation" series on HBO GO, that's interesting, of course saturated fat is a no-no. It is difficult listening to what constitutes as healthy now that I believe something so radically different. There are good points and projects going on, especially in regard to proverty and obesity. Tonight, I expect to eat a nice big fresh salad, bacon-wrapped asparagus, and steak. I am craving lighter foods lately, so bacon and steak don't (at this time) sound too appealing. Chris is sick of chicken, so steak it is!

    7:50 am: well rested, but achy this morning in my back and shoulders. I also have a headache. I have a lot to accomplish, but don't feel so great. I may have to just allow myself relaxation and postpone other things. I really want to get back into a cardio routine and do more toning as well. We'll see how the day goes.

    Watched more "Weight of the Nation", "A calorie is a calorie is a calorie" = bullshit. 1200 calories of Kit Kats = 1200 calories of spinach = 1200 calories of Chicken = 1200 calories of bread???? Eat what you want people, just make sure you don't exceed x number of calories! If that was the reality of weight gain or loss, why would millions of dollars be spent on weight loss research? Hmmm? I was impressed with one guy's comment about how he cringes when he watches "Biggest Loser"... I cringe too! All those crazy hours of nearly killing the contestants with excessive exercise. They do concur that weight loss has way more to do with food than exercise, and that exercise alone won't do much. But, for 'maintaining' weight loss, exercise is huge. Good info for me there. I really need to work on making exercise a habit and something I look forward to, because I'm not going backwards.

    I've not heard of Weight of the Nation... That calorie is a calorie logic, it's illogical. Seems some gathered a bunch if nutrition facts, kneaded them into whatever they needed them to look like so they could sell it those in need of help. Folks believing that aren't getting the help they need.

    Exactly, they don't get the help they need. Furthermore, people with weight issues get double whammied in my opinion. We have to deal with social stigma and faulty societal assumptions about ourselves, along with trying to wade through all the conflicting information while spending lots of money in the process, often with adverse results. It's a bad place to be in and I am so grateful I found Paleo and can finally see a way out. I still struggle, but at least I feel better while doing it!
