  • Just a quick guess- you don't want to be a bother with your problems, right? Oh how I know that one. Feel free to PM me if you need to bother someone. Sometimes all you need to do is say it out loud. Hm- actually- for a while my therapist had me use a recorder and actually say the mean stuff I say to myself out loud and record it so I could hear how stupid it was. Maybe it's a thought for you? Even just actually voicing it makes you "hear" it differently.

          Yeah, last time I just did the flour, eggs, and milk for pizza crust. The greasy feeling doesn't bother me that bad, I usually eat pizza with a fork anyway.

          • the tapioca by itself will have a rubbery feeling, is this what you're talking about? adding the rice flour gives it a more bread-like feeling.

            • Hmm..yeah I thought the rubbery feeling was when I let them get too thick. I wasn't complaining about that, just the "I can't pick this thing up with my hands because it's greasy" feeling. But I might have to try rice flour, does it have the same primal approving? I would hate to do anything to offend Sir Mark and/or lose my street cred.

              • lol, sort of. it's gluten free and low-toxin. mark ok's rice as it's basically just starch. so we're not talking about a nutritionally dense food, but it's one of those accepted thing among some primal people (including mark).

                  Sounds like this is not helping you. I guess you told him so?

                  What makes you think they are confident? Photoshopped people aren't real people.

                  Here's a video that I have shown my girls a couple of times (and our youth group as well):

                  • by confident people, i mean women who are comfortable looking at nude pictures of other women, knowing that their husbands are attracted to that. i've tried, and it just doesn't work for me. i've told him off and on how much it messes with my head, but then he asks again and i convince myself that i'll be okay, so i consent. wtf am i thinking? as far as "perfect people" goes, no i don't believe that people are as perfect looking as they look in magazines and whatnot. but i do know there are people who look amazing. as an example, my husband's sister is an international model. she's a small fish, no doubt, but she does make a living on it. so when i hear some people say "no one really looks like that" i think: "well maybe not exactly like that, but pretty darn close." which is really besides the point anyway, because my frustration is more about how we size up women rather than where in the continuum i fall (though that plays a role too).

                    it is a telling video. i need to sort this stuff out sooner than later. my daughter will be dealing with some of this crap in just a few years.

                      Maybe I'm having a dumb day, but I don't understand why that definition of 'confidence' is something to be aspired to.

                      I mean, it's theoretically possible that my wife or I could have sex with other people and that wouldn't hurt either of us, but since we don't plan on doing that, and we're planning on living our lives (exclusively) together, isn't dwelling on that just a pointless hypothetical?

                      I think that part of what we are doing on our primal journey is understaking self improvement, and being more open to pornography (which is what it seems like you are wanting) seems like a lifestyle neutral change at best rather than an improvement.

                        This is it! I wonder what your hubby would think if your daughter's BF/SO/Hubby was showing her pictures of other women talking about stuff he likes about them... Maybe then he might get it!

                            He'd probably think nothing of it. Perhaps it is a societal thing and guys do not have all the pressures or whatever, but lets face it, much like Saoirse said, guys do not give a flying fuck if you think George Clooney has nice abs or Brad Pitt has a sweet ass. "Oh look honey, isn't he hot?" Well, I prefer my guys with a little less penis and a touch more vagina, but sure, if you say so. And the old, "Would you want someone doing that to your daughter" guilt trip is way over played. Sure, it is gold for rape juries but not so much for Victoria Secret models.

                            The easiest thing to do is say, "Look dear hubby o'mine, I really do not give two craps if Jessica Alba has the body of a goddess a week after giving birth. She is a millionaire with a dietician, a personal trainer, a personal chef, and three plastic surgeons. And hey, guess what, you married me. If you want to comment on some chick's ass, it better be mine otherwise stfu and save it for your buddies."

                            I'm not trying to down your feelings Saoirse. I am just saying that guys are kinda dense. Tell it to us straight or we will hear it the way we want to hear it. And if you have told him once and he does it again just give him that 'wtf look' and say, "Dude, we talked about this. STFU." you know but with love and wifely tact or whatever.

                              Yeah, I don't think so.

                                huh, maybe you react differently to guilt that I do.
