I have been reading up more on taking natural progesterone to jump start my period and it looks as though I may need to take it for 7 days instead of 3 to insure it works because if it didn't work I would have to start ALL over again . It is making me SO tired ALL day. Hopefully I won't be a complete beached whale from all of the water by the end of the 7 days lol.

i had it for the first time today. have read SO MUCH about it and how great it is. i actually liked the way it tasted in my coffee. i did read to take it slow but of course i didn't and had 2 T so i felt a little sick a little after. i love the way it smells and the taste of coconut is very faint.

but supposedly its supposed to be really good for weightloss and overall health. i don't plan on taking it again until P3 probably cause it has a lot of calories.

It doesn't to me at all! It tastes oily and gross if you don't cover the taste well. In my coffee I don't even taste a hint of coconut. You could add some cinnamon to mask the taste even further. I am not a huge fan of it in general but it works wonders for me. I read saturated fat can help you lose best out of all fats and coconut oil's fat is like 90% saturated so I think that's why it works so well not to mention there isn't any protein in it so its a great source to up fat.

Nice! So far today I'm at 81% fat, 4 carbs and 56 protein.

I'm thinking of actually having something with a tiny bit of carbs in it, because i'm quite dizzy.

If you are under 15g you are definitely okay to eat more and even under 20 for most people. I did that last night and it made me feel much better!

I agree. I had a few tablespoons of peanut butter (yes, only a few!!!!) and I feel better already. 4g of carbos was just too low for me. I've probably had about 20g now.

Yay for a few!!
I'm about to eat my 3 eggs with half a cup of green beans. Wasn't hungry until now and since my progesterone has been makin me starvin I don't want to eat anything unless I'm really hungry.

On another note, I really need new jeans but I seem to be between sizes. I am a size 16 some times but 18 is too big now. I feel confused when I go into stores now. I guess that's a good thing lol. I have been living in sweats since I don't want to buy a bunch of clothes that won't fit really soon. I am getting SO anxious to get moving again. I seriously HATE hormones. They rain all over my parade. I think me losing so much so fast these last few weeks is what made them wake up and go crazy on me. It's so hard riding them out. I have no idea where all of this came from. Sorry for the rambling LOL

Hmmm. Honestly, my opinion on the whole PMS thing is to ride it out. Don't go nuts, but don't make yourself miserable, right? I will fully admit to eating m&m's when I had super bad PMS the other week. Bad idea? Yes. Did it prevent me from killing my entire family? Yes.

As for the clothes thing, I would stick it out in yoga pants. I made the mistake of buying new jeans and then they were too big for me a couple weeks later. Now I have to wash them after every wear and put them in a HOT dryer.

I remember the days when I was so afraid of my jeans shrinking. Now they're almost all too big with the exception of one pair, which fit like a glove. Just stick with yoga pants. What about leggings? I have like 400 pairs of leggings.

I actually wear a lot of skirts now. Even mini skirts. Except it's just about fall now in Canada which means snow could come at any time

I cheated last Friday and ate a medium fry and some pickles. I have been PMSing for 18 dys now I believe. It's NEVER ending lol.

I do pretty much only wear yoga pants now. I have one pair Of jeans that actually fit that I wear if I need to be presentable. I use to wear mini skirts ALL the time. I can't wait to wear those with ugg boots this winter! It's never super cold here so you can get away with a skirt with boots and a jacket man I woul love to see snow again!!!

Morning!
Down again! 252.2 I don't have my journal with me but I believe we are at 4lbs lost!

Mary- it gets very cold here in Canada! Here in Ottawa we have the world's largest skating rink (outdoors) and a huge festival called Winterlude. Google it! The city turns into a Winter Wonderland with ice skulptures and ice slides and skating and sleigh rides and beaver tails and... But too be honest, nothing is as beautiful as the Rockies in Manders side of the country. Great skiing. Great people.

Well it is a long weekend here and I have today off- going to enjoy kicking back and doing nothing!! Should be doing schoolwork. BLAH!

Well, stepped on the scale this morning 5x and got 5 diff weights.....so I guess my batteries need changing also......grrrrr
So I can't report anything good, sorry

But all the weights (all 5) were higher then yesterday, so I must have an up day today...water weight or something....must be water since I ate the exact same thing 2days in a roll. Yesterday I had a loss of 1.3lbs so today I am guessing I have a gain????? Has to be water.....ugh
I wish I could look inside my body and see what is going on...lolololol

Geez, I am gone for one day and you all have pages for me to catch up on!!!

I am still figuring out my percentages as i go, still working out how to keep my protein down and fat up. The carbs thing I have figured out, but the protein to fat ratio is still giving me trouble. I haven't weighed either as my scale is in a very inconvenient spot. Plus my hands are quite swollen today and not sure why.

I totally hear you all on the addictive personality. I'm a binge eater and would eat vast quantities in secret, hiding the evidence. Boxes of donuts, bags of chips, candy, pizza - all at one sitting.
Eating this high fat really helps with that.

I love the idea of sharing our daily menus from time to time- gives us all meal ideas.
Have done some cooking today, preparing for the work week.

Made chocolate whip cream
Oopsi rolls
coconut bark

I saw a recipie with PB and CO that looked like fudge- going to go searching for it.
