        Not much to say today, but wanted to check in anyway. I had so much I wanted to do today, but my car is in the shop, and will be until tonight. Uggh. Well, I will be working around the house all day, I guess.

        Lunch today is just odds and ends thrown together in a pan:

        6 ounces of hamburger meat
        1/4 chopped onion
        1/3 chopped yellow pepper
        4 big copped mushrooms
        2 crushed tomatoes.... last of the year from my garden
        various spices... some of this, some of that
        2 TBS mustard
        1 TBS Habanero hot sauce

        All cooked and well mixed..... meh, it tastes fine...
        Start Date 9.24.12
        Starting weight 285ish ( scale is acting funny so I don't trust it, but 285 is close )

        Main Goal - To be healthy for my family... I have an awesome family.

        Your Dad is So Fat

        • I got tired of waiting for the library to get my copy, so I bought a copy of the Primal Blueprint. And I pre ordered a paleo cookbook from Dana Carpender, who has had many low carb cookbooks published. I am off to join the YMCA in just a bit..... all is going great. Just a lot of stuff to do is keeping me from posting more. No worries.

          • OK, so OF COURSE this happened..... The book finally came in to the library! ARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!

            At least I was able to join the YMCA today. Don't want to go into all the details, but today has been on aggravation after another. In my pre primal days I would have been drinking at least 2 glasses of milk, and eating about 10 - 12 cookies. Today I just grabbed a hamburger that was leftover from last night, put on some mustard, and ate that.

            • I first read the Primal Blueprint from the library. After I returned it I kept wishing I had it to refer to. Not a bad thing to have it on hand!

                  Lol, I have done that too--cold leftover burger patty with mustard, eaten with my fingers. Surprisingly satisfying.

                    On a positive note, a pair of pants that was tight 4 weeks ago, is almost to the point I would call them too big.

                      • So, this has nothing to do with primal.... but I need a place to vent.

                        We have this young girl who lives next to us. She is one of only 2 girls in our development that are my twins age. She is just plain annoying. I know, as I have witnessed her being annoying way too many times to count. And she can have a mean streak.

                        I won't get into specifics, but she was really mean to my one daughter on one day.... way more than usual. So, both of my daughters have decided that they didn't want to play with her anymore, as did the other girl my daughters age. Effectively it left her with nobody to play with in the development. And for about 6 weeks nobody did play with her. And you could see that she was miserable. By my way of thinking, she brought it on herself by her nasty actions.

                        Backtracking, I have tried to encourage my kids to make this work with this girl because we are next door neighbors, but it never works... the girl will be fine after people tell her she's nasty, but then she gets nasty again, eventually. So, the kids in the neighborhood generally avoid her. That said, I didn't force my kids to play with this girl, but I encouraged it for the sake of being good neighbors.

                        Well, after this last event, I told both of my kids that I am totally fine if they never play with this girl ever again, but they can't be rude to her.

                        My wife says the girl's mom is no longer friendly towards my wife. But that isn't a big deal; I have come to learn that many people do not get along with this woman. In fact, it is so bad, that literally, as adults, many of the women in my development won't attend an event if this woman is there. That's rather sad, IMO.

                        Anyway, the young girl came over today wanting to play with my kids. And I told the girl that "my kids don't have any intentions of playing with you again, because they think you are too mean to them." She said "OK, whatever." and walked away.

                        I probably should not have said anything, but I decided that someone had to make it clear to her that her actions have consequences. I didn't think that talking with her parents would make much difference.

                        I just have this feeling I should have just stayed out of it, but I really would prefer if my kids stay away from this girl. I honestly believe that one day she is going to annoy someone to the point where there will be violence, and I don't want my kids there if it happens.

                        • Sadly it sounds like she has learned that from her mother. My heart breaks for kids like that because they really don't get it. They are just modeling what they are taught. That said, your girls are your girls. You can't sacrifice them. All you can do is let the girl know her actions do have consequences. And pray that she will change and be happy.

                          • Tonight was pretty good for dinner.... I had a big rib-eye and a large amount of homemade Palak Paneer. I know we need fat, but I just can't eat those huge chunks of fat that you find on a rib-eye, but I think the steak has plenty in the marbling. I also took the TINIEST of cheats..... I made 12 large banana muffins with bananas that were going bad. I was planning to give them all away, so I took 1 SMALL bite, to taste them, and I fed the rest to my dogs. They were absolutely delicious, though....

                            This better all work, or I am up the creek w/o a paddle if my blood work numbers skyrocket.... but I am feeling good about my chances... YES, I eat more meat, and eggs, but I basically have ZERO of anything processed / or with sugar except a little it of homemade BBQ sauce. My wife can't believe that I haven't touched bread, pasta, or junk foods since I started this... So, at the very least, I think it should all balance out. I know it has been good for my diabetes.

                            • OK, so today starts week 4..... I feel good about staying on plan. I'm going to hit the YMCA today. I was chatting with my wife about whether I will stay on plan on Thanksgiving Day.... My answer was "mostly". I *must* have my green bean casserole or it it just isn't Thanksgiving. I can skip the pies. I can skip the gravy and the stuffing, but I will not skip my green bean casserole. I know that sounds dumb, but we only make it on Thanksgiving, and I am going to have some. Life isn't worth living if you can NEVER enjoy a favorite food.

                              • There was a boy in my neighbourhood growing up who was like that. He used to be an awful bully and would do things like throw snowballs at my dog (the most gentle creature ever) when I took her for walks in the morning. The kid was just like his dad--the father was known as the neighbourhood jerk and was absolutely hated by the whole community. Worse, he was a city police officer who used that as a way to intimidate and push people around. It wasn't a surprise the kid was awful when you looked at the example he had.

                                As for the green bean casserole, you can make an exception for a holiday treat. It's when treats turn into daily things that you have a problem. You might also look at ways to make your gravy gluten free using a starch thickener instead of flour so that you can indulge a little in that too. Not much you can do about bread stuffing though--I make one with rice instead, but I've done that for years because I'm a celiac, and not every family is going to accept that change to the traditional meal.
