  1. @arcelas, thank you for your honesty! I know the feeling of making progress with our goals (especially weight loss), then doing something stupid and fucking up again and feeling really down on ourselves. I want to recommend something that has been really instrumental for me in my weight loss journey. I tell you this as someone who is SO far from his goals and will often beat himself up for fucking up, but huge success is made up of tiny successes, and I am having more tiny ones as the days go by. So, here's my recommendation: practice self-compassion. This may sound weird or hokey, but carry around a notebook or use a note-taking app in your phone, and when you fuck up, write to yourself the way you would a friend. Be kind to yourself. Our relationship to food is defined by our habits, and the only way we can become aware of our habits is to become aware of what triggers us. And when we screw up, we don't beat ourselves up, but instead acknowledge our fall, then get up and keep going (like you're already doing.) Let me know if I can be of any help!
  2. Noshtastic is a great resource, although not exclusively Paleo.
  3. Hi, @ChirpyBird! I wanted to know if you and your husband had that conversation! I was curious as to if you and your husband's decision to go vegan was rooted in a desire to respect animal's rights. If so, I'd second what @Defining said about buying meat from local, ethical farmers (if you decide to reintegrate it.) I also wanted to share an interview with you from the Joe Rogan podcast with Tovar Cerulli. He was once a vegan for ethical reasons, then became a hunter after doing research and realizing that even his vegan lifestyle was doing more harm than good. It's a fascinating interview, and worth a listen. If you aren't familiar with Joe Rogan, he can come across as abrasive, but it's definitely worth a listen. It's definitely NSFW, so be mindful of where you listen! Hope you guys can discuss it in a way that benefits both of you!
  4. Hey fellow Monks! I am new to the whole Nerd Fitness movement, but I do love me some meditation! I wanted to recommend this app for you guys, too: The Insight Timer. This app is FANTASTIC. It has a ton of guided meditations, a sweet timer, and lots of community groups. It's definitely worth checking out.
  5. Hey everyone! I am new to the whole Nerd Fitness world, and I am excited to be a part of it. In 2015, my wife and I did Whole30. I lost a bunch of weight, felt great, and most importantly, learned a lot about my eating habits. Then the year of insanity. We had a lot of stressful events occur (some positive, some negative) to which I responded by resorting to my old eating habits. I gained that weight back and then some. I'm around 280, the second time I've ever been this large, and I want to change my life! What I'm hoping to find is someone who wants to do Whole 30 or a paleo Reset with me, and we can keep each other accountable. Tim Ferriss once suggested as incentive that people make it a game, and so I was thinking something along the lines of some friendly competiton. I need community to succeed! My wife isn't interesting in doing a Whole30 this go around with me, and I know I need help. Let me know if you're interested!
