    • Just got home from clothes shopping. Pants are 40 x 32 instead of 52x32 and shorts are a loose xl not a 5xl. shirts are large not 3xl. I giggled the whole time, I am sure the sales woman thinks I am mad as a hatter.

      with the Humidity it is 108 F out now and getting hotter as the day wears on.... This is crazy for Montreal.

      • Congrats on the weight loss!! I'm in the same boat, I kinda like clothes shopping now because I can choose things I like, rather than just hoping I can find something that fits that I don't look like a houseboat wearing!

        We got the same heat here 5 hours South... Crazy! My son is outside working landscaping (shoveling rocks) he's having trouble keeping hydrated.

        Stay cool!

          Hi Warmbear!

          This made me laugh! Thanks! Sometimes I lurk on here - I have roughly been following your story. Congrats on the weight loss!

          I made a friend at the last homeschool conference I attended - she is in Montreal. Was cute as hell - her English is super, but her kids had to go out of their comfort zone here in Ohio, especially the teen, but he did great.

          • I seem to have lost enough weight now that I dont actually fit in my skin so well. In some places I feel like I am inside a thick neoprene wet suit that is 2 sizes too big. I have actually rolled over in bed and pinched the skin on my side or hips... weird feeling. I do hope it will shrink in time to fit the new less flubbery me.

            • I think it would be helpfull to hydrate your skin on a daily basis. Don't know any brand in your country, but you should ask for advice.
              Eating good amount of good fat should help your skin as well.

              • I eat plenty of fat but I dont hydrate. I do have every dry skin so maybe I should? Not a very "manly" thing to do though.

                      • Nice work, Warmbear! And your advice to lynette, complete with "love," was very sweetly put. She's frustrated, and you reminded her of the "facts ma'am." Well done--you're a nice guy!

                          • I am really saddened and frustrated by all the posts I have seen on FB of late about both Paleo and non paleo treats. Cakes and candies and deserts and baked goods of all kinds seem to have become all the rage. So many paleo cooks seem to love to post "paleo chocolate date squares" or some such stuff. How many Paleo chocolate chip cookie posts do we need?

                            Drives me nuts frankly and I do realize there is little I can do about it but still.

                            I have a friend on FB who is quite morbidly obese, dontch'a love that term? "Death fat" it just rolls off the tongue. Anyways she has been posting all these yummy sugary covered chocolate bombs and sugar free but filled with flour and honey breads and southern comfort foods that she just cant wait to have stuffed in her face. She knows about paleo, she knows about what is healthy, hell she is an ambulance techn in Georgia so she should have some idea... one hopes anyways. She also whines about her weight and her lack of a love life and how hard it is to do her job at her 400 plus lbs and how she wishes she could loose weight like me etc etc etc.. Ya cant help them, ya cant force them to think ya cant make them understand that a 1 lb loaf of banana bread covered with lemon pudding and icing sugar and an extra large Coffee thing from starbucks is not a healthy breakfast...

                            People please, if you have a blog or are likely to post food porn to the interwebs, please realize that posting real food, healthy food instead of those paleo treats will work to influence those around you to discover what real food is and is not. If folks think putting paleo in front of a batch of cookies makes it ok to eat cause it is healthy, we all loose something in the end.

                            thanks.

                              • Well said, Warmbear!!!

                                My sister......... also morbidly obese (350+) is always posting those types of recipes also. She also suffers from fibromyalgia and has type 2 diabetes. She has watched me turn my health around - reversing the effects of fibromyalgia and becoming a healthier - happier - much more active person. But she won't try it herself.

                                then I get my BIL - he's trying to go primal/paleo -- but at every turn is trying all those pseudo recipes that claim to be paleo. And he's getting no where.

                                Lets see --- lets take out the sugar and add honey --- then take out the wheat flour and replace with almond or tapioca flour -- and bingo!! Its paleo! Its still LOADED with calories!

                                They just don't get it. They want to eat the goodies and will tweak the recipes so its supposed to be "healthy"!

                                In the 2 years I've been primal - I have only made one dessert that was supposed to be "healthy" due to changing out bad for good ingredients. Personally I didn't even like it. The texture was all wrong and the flavor was weird.
