My coach sucks and she yells at me if i eat broccoli and cauliflower in the same meal or in the same day. Shes not that supportive and seems to find something wrong with what im doing all the time. Such as life, nothings ever easy...so i'll keep chugging along.

I'm sorry your coach sucks!!!! I have never heard of not eating broccoli and cauliflower together....maybe I am missing something, but that is what I eat most of the time and seem fine???? I have heard other people haven't had the energy and good feelings like most people feel.....that is hard to deal with I am sure. Don't get me wrong I definately get some huge bad moods going on and I am positive it is diet related......I sometimes feel crappy too.....but luckily it isn't as often. Is it this site a couple times a day. I find it helps for sure.....as far as your coach.....I just don't talk to mine much about stuff. She ask how I am doing I tell her good, food is fine....I dont show her a journal and I up my food and go. I really only go to get the food, I look for my support here and I go by my own weigh in on Thursday mornings because I can't usually get to the clinic until late afternoon....after I have drank a crap load of water and eaten all day.....the number sucks! One thing I was told, you could try is eating fish every day for a week and it "can" show good weight loss. Keep going...... We are all here for you...it will work out!

So, I have been experiencing some "fog/hunger/lightheadedness" evey morning about 2 hours after I have my breakfast and about three hours after my lunch.
I have been doing the salt thing and having another packet, if needed. This morning I had a few pieces of red pepper, and it went right away. I am in ketosis, dark bugandy. Is this normal?

I am very excited to be OP!!!
Congrats! I am in the middle of week three and the fog has gone away for me except for after lunch...I still have a rough hour or two every afternoon which is not great for work productivity...I'd love some tips too if anyone has any! I am also doing the salt...

Thanks for listening.
Yes!! Isn't it madness. That is why this time I am doing this for no one but myself and my health. People with those attitudes are missing out on the chance to have so many wonderful people in their lives. Struggling with weight isn't good for much but it is good for understanding that people's best qualities lie beneath their skin!

After posting a couple hours ago that I was exhausted beyond my limits, I calmly came inside and cut my vegees and made my delicious stir-fry salad with turkey and pasta and WF Honey Mustard, and it was downright delicious. The thing is, in the past when I pushed too hard, I had a melt-down and ate whatever was in front of my face, i.e., those dangerous nuts, but today I didn't! Yabadabadoo!!!

It really is an amazing journey we are all on...

Spent another couple hours pulling ivy vines off the side of the house so that we can pressure wash it this weekend. Geeze, these things are tenacious. Had to go get more leather gloves and my hands are raw from the little thorns...but I made some progress. There's a point where even coffee doesn't help and I have to quit or risk hurting myself.

I am beyond freakin' tired...
I am so impressed and proud of you, plowing right through and getting the job done!!

So here's my little NSV for the day: I walked by one of our manager's office today, and he called me in. He said "get in here, skinny girl!" Loved it, even though he's a bit optimistic there

Almost forgot... Wish me luck for my WI tomorrow. Will promptly report the results.

Way to go!!! I am experimenting with the vegetables that I have never dreamed of eating. And thanks to the recipes on this site, I am finding meals that I actually enjoy. I have felt like you several times over the past few weeks, but like you, I have managed to get past it. Congrats!!
