So, I went on Atkins Diet about 2 years ago, was successful at first but then plateaued. So I switched over to a Primal Diet, and have been doing that in combination with other restrictions for about a year and a half. Basically low carb or very low carb for the entire time.

Yesterday, I got a hankering for oatmeal. So I cooked up a batch of Steel Cut Oats, tossed in an egg (add protein and make it more custard-ey), some KerryGold butter, a splash of stevia, a tablespoon of walnuts and YUM! I really missed oatmeal.

SW 3/1/13 =274.8
CW= 268.4 up after an up day
Calories = 1730
Net Carbs = 134g/32%
Fat= 97g/52%
Protein= 70g/17%
Sleep =6:50 91%
Steps= nevermind! I start back on the treadmill tomorrow, still have a bit of congestion going on.

So, a big part of the reason that I put on pounds on my non-fast days is that I don't drink as much when I am at home. I do drink the coffee and tea in the morning and cups of tea throughout the day, but never finish even one of the 50oz bottles...

Popped back up to the 155 range this morning (10/30/2017), but feels like this is the ceiling instead of the floor this time, which is encouraging. Besides, my monthly cycles appeared today, so must allow...

I'm currently shifting a lot of my mindset and methods this week, so I'm jumping off the weeks and switching to days. This is, after all, a whole life kind of thing, right? Besides, I don't like having...

Good luck, @moderatemeals! I think you'll love this way of life!
Losing 1.6 pounds is hardly a plateau! You are not going to keep losing at the same rate as the beginning. You should be very happy with 1 pound a week!
Thanks for the comment, cblasz.
Maybe this WOE is so successful that everyone's lost the weight and got on with their lives! I can hope ...

Yes, it is terribly dead here, especially lately. I think that people either just have all the information they need or have stopped this WOE. It is a shame. But stick around. It seems to go in waves....
