    Hi All, I can't believe I am still weighing less on the scale every week. Love this way of eating, and she has lots of free information if you are interested. brightlineeating.com, lots and lots of interesting information and the latest research on brain responses etc. So I am a Bright Liner for as long as it takes, it is about so much more than food and I have never felt this peaceful or in control in my life. Hope you are all happy and doing what you like, Happy Belated birthday, Nancy. Sounds like you had a marvellous time wtih your family. Vozelle hope your tests come back perfect--huge advantage eliminating sugar and flour (I have realized they will be gone forever from my life and am happy with that). You sound busy as ever Crimsann. Hope you are doing well Cynthia. Think of you all so fondly, we have had a massive journey together. Take care.

    Hi Everyone, hope you are all doing well. I am loving Bright Line Eating and will keep going with that--finally something that is working and I am feeling so well, calmer, happier than I have been for a long long time. As I said before, many W30 foods are fine and of course I will continue to eat non-processed whole foods and with 20 oz vegetables a day, 12oz fruit (which can be switched for vegetable) and 12 oz protein, I know I am eating what I need and the proportions I need. So will be sticking to this long term. Hope you are all well and happy.

    Hello All I have been doing Bright Line Eating now for a full five weeks and am down 21 pounds! Can hardly believe it. As I say it is in some ways similar to W30 but no sugar no flour and quantities are important. But for me it is working brilliantly. I have been wondering how you are all doing and will check in from time to time but my main focus will be BLE for the next while. There is a lot of new research on exercise and brain function with weight loss, it does make sense to me and is working. Hope you are all well.

    Sounds like you are motoring along beautifully. I can't believe the helmet with a tiara--LOVE IT! Hope you both have great times on the trails. xxx

    Well I haven't been around for a while and here's why. I was so low about not moving anywhere weight wise and not willing to go another 'diet', had enough of that for twelve lifetimes, but didn't know what to do. Of course, as it happens information crossed my path and I have been reading about Bright Line Eating, the ebook is on amazon.com for $1.99 until the end of May. It makes a lot of sense to me and is based on very very current research. I have been following it for a couple weeks and have actually lost weight for the first time in over a couple years. Not hugely different from this but we weigh our food, eat three meals a day and two major rules: no sugar, no flour. I didn't realize almond flour is actually flour and that the process of making into flour creates the same problem as sugar. Popcorn is considered flour as well! So I was using almond flour in my meatloaf. But doesn't matter now am not using any flour and of course no sugar, sweetener etc and etc and I am finally losing weight. Early days, but I am hopeful. You may want to investigate. Freezing cold here and I have to keep moving to keep warm. Hope you are all well.

    Hard way to go but good outcome. Hope you are feeling better daily.

    OMG! You have to be taking care of yourself! Not good.

    I tried to respond but the computer doesn't like me any better than I do at the moment. I can so relate to you, Nancy and Cynthia. I have decided sugar and flour are out for life for me and have to do it one day at a time or perhaps one meal at a time. I haven't lost any weight on W30 but have changed some habits and developed some good ones. I W30 but have changed some habits and developed some good ones. I need to do something to change the weight however so have been doing more research. Flour and sugar, in any form, are out for me and hopefully that will help. I will be in and out of here briefly over the next couple of months but will still be around. Sending light and love to you all. L

    Hello Easter has been and gone along with the rabbit and his chocolate--I did eat a marshmallow egg and honestly it tasted so awful I won't do that again! Didn't even really want it to begin with but there you go. have been having a terrible time personally lately so struggling to eat at all, much less properly. I haven't done too badly but really could do better. Emotions just take over my life at times and everything goes belly up! Does anyone use Open Office? I am having a terrible time formatting some documents--would really appreciate some help if anyone knows how. I use Writer 5. Now I almost hate to say this but in the spirit of full disclosure: I went to Carl's Jr and had a burger--I loved it. I haven't had food from any kind of fast food outlet for years and I had been fighting the idea of having a burger for a few weeks. Thought about it and decided I would do it--for me, it was worth it but haven't needed or wanted to do it again. I think that is the spirit of food freedom so feel quite fine about it for myself. (Some other things I haven't felt that way about).pI have booked an appointment with a physio who specializes in movement. I seriously need to do some more exercise and I want to be sure I am doing things the right way for me. I have finally got my foot back to no pain, but why did it happen is my question? And how to prevent future outbreaks!!! Hope you are all chugging along at a pace you are comfortable with.

    Hi Nancy sorry to hear you are having problems with your house-mate. Never easy I think--no wonder marriage is such a marathon Having several challenges here and not coming off so well but all part of the process I guess. Made a chocolate gananche the other day and for some reason used sugar--then ate it-- at least some of it. Normally I don't have any sweetener in it just the avocados, oil and cocao powder--who knows how that we sugar devil jumped up. Never mind, I was ill after and won't' be doing it again. I discovered last week that pork is not good for me and I have been using it almost exclusively since it seems chicken doesn't sit well, eggs aren't great and beef is okay occasionally but not beef mince. So perhaps that was causing some inflammation and the reason my foot was screaming?"??? Who knows. I am now off pork and working on what else I can have. Back to the drawing board. Our summer was non-existant we are now in fall and having some absolutely beautiful days with some regular shockers. Unsettled weather constantly so that makes it unsettled everywhere. Breakfast time now--have a good week everyone.

    it is like a drug and the problem was I didn't even have anything sweet to stimulate the craving--weird. Never mind I made up for it the other day and won't even tell you what I had, just being defiant and taking it out on myself. How stupid. As Nancy would say: "Really? How odd." So I had laugh and moved on. Foot much better and have no idea what was wrong or what fixed it--thanks for your concern.

    Hello Have been MiA for a while, did something to my foot that is not nice and am limping around so am not very pleasant lately. I would think if I damaged it I could remember it, but nothing in the memory banks about injury. Just woke up unable to put weight on it. Any suggestions? Sounds like you are doing well, Nancy. Love the ' Really, how odd' will take that one with me too. I am still laughing. I have been fighting a few chocolate chip cookies and muffins, lately, not that I want them but I can almost taste them. Thank goodness I have made batches ahead so am not baking them this week. I wonder what that sugar thing is when I have not had any for so long and not even thought about it, then suddenly it's like they are together singing my name like I am the only one in the world that they love and need to be part of my system!!! They didn't win so no problem, just think it is very weird. Have a good weekend everyone.

    Hi Doing well but have been having some creepy little thoughts about cookies and muffins. I really don't want to eat them but they seem to be calling me so have been trying to figure out why. Have been doing exercise everyday, not a huge amount but regular so that has to count for something and I can feel that does. Shape shifting again. I am so pleased we decided to stay together for this past year, I think for me, the cracks have been showing up beyond the initial effort and now I feel much more solid in my journey. Thanks to you all. I appreciate being here with you.

    Sorry, Nancy can't do the cleaning for you. I am only good on middles, you need my husband who is such a thorough cleaner it is frightening. I will speak to him for you but don't hold your breath.

    Hi Just checking in to see what's happening. Have been doing well so am pleased. But had some setbacks this week, ended up going out for meals three times (almost unheard of in my world!), I didn't eat the obvious things, like bread that was served with the meal but there were things not allowed, like salad dressing that I didn't realize was even on the salad. So have not been 100% but going with my new approach to life, not a huge setback. Although I did notice a difference in my slacks, the waist was definitely much more snug than the previous week. I can't believe the small amount of whatever it was, made such a difference. Never mind it is more information and we carry on. Just out of the ocean, lovely lovely swim/walk today. High tide and relatively warm water so am a happy camper at the moment. Have a good weekend everyone.
