  1. What scale did you buy?

    My scale has gone wacky, so now I'm in the market for a new one.

    Which scale do you all recommend? I had a Taylor, but the one I almost bought today is plastic and cheap, and the Weight Watchers scale has too many bells and whistle I don't need to justify the cost.

    Any input would be appreciated.

I have a friend who just finished the Whole 30 and is now introducing dairy and grains, P3 style. I'm considering doing that over the 40 days of Lent. Anybody do that before? Would you recommend it?

    - sleeping much better
    - blood pressure is more normal (was abnormally low)
    - blood sugar issues resolved

    I could go on and on, but I'd like to hear from others...
  5. Had a physical at doctor's yesterday

    Just had a physical yesterday and my blood pressure was a nice, normal 120/70. It's usually 106/60 which my doctor said was caused by stressed adrenals. He said my adrenals are normal now. Not only do I look better, but I'm healthier than I've been in years. Hurrah!

    I ended P2 at 157.8 and have happily maintained for 46 days now, mostly by eating whatever I want except high starch foods and sugar (except for those occasional bites of treats my family is having). I'm basically ...
