      Interesting. Your nutritionist makes a good point. I don't have your problem at all. I rather like my perky barely Bs.
      You would probably be fine with ghee if you miss the butter.

      Don't watch a lot of drama, but I've become seriously addicted to both NCIS's, class viewing!
      Yes, during the summer TV doldrums I'm catching up on all the stuff I missed last season when I was too busy with Dad to watch.

      Thanks, Joanie. Onward!

      Doncha love it when someone starts complaining about "it doesn't work" and then, as the thread unfolds, it turns out they were only half assedly doing the plan in the first place.

      If it's not in the house, I won't drink it.

      Congrats on the new journal, Paleobird! You are an inspiration for many of us. For me, you have a terrific balance of "try it and see if it works" backed by thoughtful reasoning along with an honesty about how life gets in the way. Your journal helps you, but it helps many of us as well!
      Thank you and welcome.

      BTW, when I was in San Diego I took your suggestion and went to the zoo, and to Rei Do Gado for dinner. Both excellent suggestions! Thanks!
      Thanks for the plant. It looks great with the curtains. I'm glad you had a good time in San Diego. If you ever get to stay longer look me up.

      Always enjoy your journals. God, I wish I had a sense of humor.
      ...and not working out.

      OOOOOPS! That is totally a typo and I didn't notice it til you did. But now that you mention it, maybe I'll keep it that way. Rawr!

      ETA:figured out how to fix that. You have to go into the "go advanced " section to change the title. I really did mean Flight not Fight. Freudian slip perhaps.

      Hmph. It fixed it on the first page of the journal but the thread title stayed the same. Oh well, I guess I'm stuck with it.

I tend to use it mainly for yummy cooking, using, Port, red wine, white wine, calvados, brandy, rum and sometimes grand marnier.... makes the best sauces when you using it with ghee and/or coconut cream. I was personally very surprised when I did the initial whole 30, when I found I couldn't re-introduce dairy. I had no idea, I loved milk and all the products from. Turns out I have a casein allergy. Have you eliminated it before?
      Yes, I dropped the dairy completely when I first started paleo (2009). I'm not intolerant of it but it is too easy to overeat plus the suspected hormonal effect.

      Thanks. You have been making some great weight progress lately so I hear on the booze thread. Nice!

        It's heartwarming to hear about people taking care of their parents - I come from a culture where this is expected but in the United States it seems things can be quite different. Anyways good luck on your new journey!

          It seems normal to me too but I know not everybody feels that way about their parents, some with good reason. I think what goes around comes around. If you raise your children right with lots of love they will *want* to take care of their parents as opposed to feeling obligated to do so.

          Where are you from?

            FWIW, I think you should consider going cougar once you're ready to get back on that particular horse. I know if I were unattached and a few thousand miles closer, I'd seriously consider putting in a boy toy application.

              Awwww. That is just about the sweetest thing I have heard in a very long time.

              And, if you were single and here, your application would be eagerly accepted.

              I think going cougar might make sense in that all the guys my age seem to be falling apart at the seams. I need to find a young one who can keep up with me.

                Well, wrap for the day:

                Labne kefir cheese for brunch, ginger garlic salmon fillet for dinner.

                Exercise, a long walk with the Wolf Cub which ended in a visit to the vet. He had split a claw back to the part that hurts. Poor baby.

                  Hello Paleobird,

                  I've been reading your other journals for a couple of days, and I find you really inspiring.

                  Hope you don't mind if I stop by from time to time!

                        Good luck with your fresh start in your new digs. Looks like you've got lots of friendly guests dropping in to keep an eye on you and hold you accountable!

                          Following you still in the shadows (and not in the creepy way!). I always seem to find some inspiration from your journaling. Please don't stop!

                              Hi Paleobird,

                              I followed along in your second journal while you were taking care of your Dad. Though it is always sad, there was a great deal of beauty in the story as well. It reminded me of the last days of my Mom (ten years ago).

                              I'm all about new beginnings, which is why I often wake to see the sun rise. I look forward to reading more about this leg of the journey.

                                Oh, that's an interesting way to put it. Makes me think of a hot plate of brownies :P

                                Paleobird, I like how you wrote out your goals. Will be cheering you on!
