    Whew!
    This has been a busy week with IT consulting, and having the kids home this week!
    I weighed in flat for the week on Monday, after experimenting with eating cheese and having a few drinks. I'm pretty certain that the cheese is the culprit. The boozing is intermittant, infrequent, and only vodka or gin, with a little lemon juice.
    I've been eating primally, with no cheese or booze this week due to weighing in flat.
    I'm fasting tomorrow and Sunday again, so here's hoping to a better weigh-in day on Monday.
    Cheers!

      Hi All!
      I weighed in today at 270 exactly!
      Whoo hoo! I'm down 2 lbs!
      No cheese and intermittant fasting did the trick!
      Cheers!

            Hi All!
            I'm doing a N=1 experiment this week: drinking a couple of shots of vodka each evening, but no cheese. I want to see the effect it has on ME.
            I'll be more strict on the booze next week, likely.
            For now, I'm enjoying getting slightly whammed.
            I also discovered how I like my veggies: smothered in fresh pesto sauce (garlic, basil and EVOO)!
            Cheers!

              Well that was tough: Celebrating my son’s birthday at a Chinese buffet. God only knows what those mushrooms were stuffed with… Shrimp? Crab? Some kind of grain product? Likely the latter. Fortunately, there was two kinds of steamed fish there: Salmon and sole.
              Afterward, we went to the bumpy-slide park for the kids to play. I got to do several reverse pull-ups while our daughter ran around, and eldest son was walking and thinking. Youngest son saw a long-time friend and played with him, so it’s all good.

              I’ll weigh myself tomorrow and be completely primal/paleo this whole next week. I LIKE SEEING THAT PROGRESS!
              Cheers!

                Well. I'm up 2 pounds, and no wonder: With all the bad scientific method I was applying to my N=1 experiment (no cheese, just a couple shots of vodka each day) I was essentially testing TWO variables at a time. bad, Bad, BAD SCIENCE!
                This week, it's no booze OR cheese. I want some good results from paleo eating and movements. I'll try back with one variable or the other NEXT week.
                B-Nothing, not hungry.
                L-Sardines and spinach salad on the side.
                Cheers!

                  Hi All!
                  Here's what I was up to today:
                  B - 11:30AM, a big cup of Bul*etpr0of coffee, Breakfast.jpg 5 Eggs, scrambled in bacon fat, a sliced tomato, ONE strip of bacon (somehow when my family is around, I just can't get more than one strip from a POUND of bacon), a little chili powder for flavor, and a little cayenne powder for heat. Whew, a little too hot! That was SPICY!
                  L - 2PM, Nothing, still full.
                  D - 6:30PM a big tin of sardines for the Omega3, yummo!
                  I will fast all day tomorrow, maybe getting just a bite or two in the evening. I want a good result for weighing in on Monday!
                  Cheers!

                    OK, no booze tonight: Fasting all day, I'll eat tomorrow after 1PM. Likely bacon and eggs, and a few slices of tomato sprinkled with chili powder.
                    I REALLY LIKE seeing results!
                    Cheers!

                      This weekend, boozing certainly. I kicked a toe in last night and broke the dang thing. Ow, for sure, but mostly annoying. It's going to affect my daily walking. Dang and DOGGONE IT
                      I had a pastured Bison ribeye steak for lunch yesterday from Whole Foods market. Whew! That was EXPENSIVE, but really delicious!
                      The butcher (Adam) also "gave me" a "customer sample" of Santa Maria Seasoning for the steak. Whew again, I didn't get to pay, but that stuff is like $10 for just a regular size bottle. It made the ribeye awesomely delish, BUT there were a few weird ingredients on that list. MEH!
                      I didn't leave that place for less than $60! ($40 for 2 bison ribeyes [about a pound each], $20 for 2 pounds of grass-fed ground beef). It may be time to invest in a small freezer and co-op some grass-fed beef, for several months at a time. It should be much cheaper that way.
                      B-5 scrambled eggs in bacon fat, a couple slices of bacon. Yummo!
                      Happy weekend y'all!
                      Cheers!

                        Good morning y'all!
                        I just weighed and WHOO HOO!
                        Down another 3.5 pounds this week, and down 37 so far!
                        I kicked my little toe on my right foot in on Friday night, breaking it, so that's going to affect walking for a bit. I've broken toes enough times to know what to do: tape it to it's neighbor (with a little cotton between). That's all a doctor would do.
                        Cheers!

                          Hi all!
                          I fasted Wednesday (after eating a semi-non-paleo dinner on Tuesday night at a long-time client's house: Stuffed salmon (good, except for the certainly some-kind-of-grain and shrimp (yum!) stuffing, asparagus and brown rice mix (chewy, but kinda tasty).
                          My client's wife hadn't seen me in two months and couldn't believe it was me. I was down probably 20 lbs since I last saw her.
                          I need to take an updated photo of myself and post it, so people can start seeing the change. Even with a broken toe, I managed to do a short walk (~20 minutes or so) with the boys. Tomorrow, it's fasting, a short walk at Sam's Club, and a trip to the park with the kiddos! I look forward to weighing in on Mondays now.
                          Cheers!

                            Good morning Y'All!
                            I weighed and WHOO HOO! I'm down another pound and a half!
                            Intermittant fasting and keeping my eating in an 8 hour window is working, even with a non-paleo meal, and excessive boozing and dairy here and there.
                            Breakfast today will be at 1PM or so, we'll see if I get hungry by then. Here's the menu for today:
                            B-1PM, Bacon, Scrambled eggs and broccoli, smothered in homemade pesto (yum-o!)
                            L-I'm going to still be full so nothing!
                            D-Bacon-Wrapped Drumsticks, chicken salad with salsa (and a little cheese and sour cream).
                            Cheers!

                              I just saw the first minute or so of "Stories from the Stone Age" on YouTube. Right away I have some problems with it. Here's a quote from the Third through fifth sentences.
                              "They are hunter-gatherers. They travel light, their children with them, one meal away from starvation. They are never able to settle down."
                              Am I the only one who's thinking: There's a bias toward the modern world here?
                              MAN! There's A LOT of arrogant SUPPOSITION going on there!
                              Don't look for any science here, it's full of baloney (not the non-primal lunch meat)!

                                Your weight loss has been incredible, Charlie! I hope your foot is healing quickly so you can get in some longer walks again!
