[insert expletives here]

Shortly after my last post I got talking to a friend of mine who happens to be a doctor and his wife. Discussed the facts of my yo-yo-ing and my Thing and being grain-free and LCHF and stuff in general.
"Do you, perchance, still have your gallbladder?"
Well, no. It's been gone for 21 years ... but I was able to lose weight before I had John (almost 11 years ago now -- his birthday is in June).
Well, no. That's only been my Thing for a couple of years tops (off and on, of course, because the lack of progress is so fecking frustrating). But I feel so much better grain free ... aside from the scale not doing what I want it to.
"Look up fat malabsorption .... and ..... you ARE taking enzymes & probiotics already, right?"
Well, no. No one ever told me to. I barely remember to take my multi-vitamin more than a couple of times a week.
"Thou shalt not continue to add extra fat if your body isn't processing it properly in the first place."
Well, fecking hell.
So, it's entirely possible that life will be improving soon with the addition of enzymes, probiotics, being better about my multis, B-complex and Magnesium .... but until I start getting all of that going I'm not going to worry about the Primal Blueprint or egg fast or adding extra fats or much of anything.

The Thing is ....

Tomorrow (well, technically, later today ... Wednesday ... whatever ...) I'll be egg fasting and then Saturday start The Primal Blueprint 21 Day Challenge. I got the ebook (only $3.99 for Kindle!) and regularly immerse myself in Mark's Daily Apple and, for the most part, seems pretty doable. I'm not going to be concerned with only getting my hands on locally grown & organic, might change up the strength exercises a bit, and my life only allows 8 hours of sleep at a time 2 nights a week ... but otherwise it should be a doable Thing.

Well ... there is that ...

At least The Doctor is a fan of yo-yos .... 
although I have a feeling even he would get annoyed with the scale doing it.
Seriously. If something doesn't give soon I may very well completely flip my shit.

The annoyance of low-carb...

Well, one of the annoyances anyway:

My scale isn't moving.

It's not going down .... but, luckily, it isn't going up.

I've had standstills before. Lots of them. But wouldn't you think that SOME downward movement with the scale would happen since I know that my weight MUST be changing with how much better some of my clothes are fitting?!?


On a happy note, it was pizza day at school today for my son and it's normally the one day a week he'll carb it up at school. Today, however, we scurried about before he had to get on the bus and had just enough time to make him his own pizza to take with him. He says it's tastier than the school pizza, too. I'll call that a big ol' win!
