    • Wow, it does make quite a difference, doesn't it? You look positively angelic. Looking forward to seeing the pictures with the mustache... You should just put your link up.

      DS#4 participated in that last year. It was so funny seeing him clean-shaven.

      How's your reset going?

      • Hey Ecks, way to rock the Movember tash. Are you going for handlebar or just as much hair as you can produce in a month?

        Hows Primal life going?

        • You look great! I am glad that women don't have to grow mustaches.

            • Hey All! Still around trust me! I will post a movember update photo today. At best I've got the moustache of a 13 year old... mine never grows in very strong but I'm hoping I'll have something decent to show off at the end of the month. Leptin reset went well. Down a couple pounds off of the plateau but still stuck in this rutt. I'm no longer doing the reset and taking the "eat as my body tells me to" approach for now. I'll stick with that because that was my norm before. Hope all are well!

                • Now you've been outed. We know your name. Rock of Peace - not a bad name at all.

                  Don't worry. Manhood is not determined by the speed of moustache growth.

                      • I think I was 30 before I could grow a passable mustache. My beard came in strawberry-blond so I could go days without shaving and nobody would really notice.

                        Both my older boys (20s) grow great big beards at a moments notice (seemingly), I guess that comes from their Mom.

                            • So it's been a while since I've weighed myself- I don't plan on it until the 22nd (one year paleo) I know I'm likely going to be pleateaued but that's besides the point. Yesterday I had 2 gals walk up and mention that I'm looking good and that they see a difference in me. Could just be the clean shaven face, could be weight change I don't know. Definitely noticed/got excited about something this morning... Stretch marks! Yes I am excited because at very least that means that stuff is shifting in me. I know it's an odd thing to be excited about but damn it it at least shows change!

                              • LOL! Yeah, when you stop puffing out the stretch marks, they really start to show, don't they? *sigh* I've got way too many.

                                Compliments from the gals are extra special, aren't they? I get a little uneasy when I get overly-frequent or overly-enthusiastic compliments from men, but that's mainly because I'm taken. And I think it psyches my hubby out a bit too.

                                Enjoy your plateau. Seriously. You take a little break, recharge your batteries, make sure you don't lose ground, and then you're ready for a fresh attack.
