In the meantime, I've lost about 8 lbs. since starting the Intro. I suspect that it will slow down/stop now that I'm adding more foods, but it is still nice to see that at least some of the weight is coming off. I've decided to do pictures for every 10 lbs I lose, so hopefully I can give you another picture of what I look like in a week or two.
Some observations about so far--one of the things that are recommended to help eliminate some of the die-off symptoms is a mixture of honey and ghee taken in small quantities over the course of the day. As I look toward (hopefully) getting back into running, I'm thinking that this mixture will work really good as a goo substitute on long runs, especially if I add a bit of salt to it. I just have to figure out what to put it in, as my 4 oz jars are a little heavy to put in my pockets during a run.
Now, on to PHFR (Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real through Like Mother, Like Daughter, in case you are wondering)

I am currently working on.
Space wise, It helps that I don't currently have a TV. That frees up some of the placement issues. I will figure it out eventually, but I need to think on it some more.
|My lunch today: Fermented Ginger Carrots, 2 GAPS pancakes made from the linked recipe, and some Smucker's fruit and honey spread to put on the pancakes. You can tell I was running late this morning because I didn't spread the jam on my pancakes before leaving home.|

I still love them to pieces.

|The real reason I need slip-covers--dogs are hard on furniture. Sassy is the culprit for this, and it was the day after she had gotten a bath. I've resigned myself to never having a clean dog: she likes digging too much, and she is all white.|
