    So the asshat is a she... should probably add that I am no where NEAR menopausal.
    I'm close and yes, group hug is well deserved.

      Well, frankly, it is because you are better than that. There is no point trying to talk sense to an asshat. You are not an asshat.

      I don't generally go to Klan meetings and try to convince them to adopt interracial relationships. I don't go to AA and tell them how good scotch is. I also don't show up at PETA meetings espousing the values of eating meat. Sometimes it is just not worth the hassle.

        • Whoever the person was used the word "espousing" WAY too much. Get a new vocabulary word, I say.

          I'm not menopausal. I'm 22. That was a really awful thing she (whoever she is) wrote. I couldn't help but laugh at it though. That person has NO friends

          • Well, frankly the person had a point it was just misplaced. Sitting around for years at a time saying "Woe is me I am still overweight and here are my list of excuses" is lame as hell. It is what I did pre-primal. It is what many people do. It is akin to "I would do that but I can't give up bread."

            It is misplaced because all of you here are trying to change it. Look at the success some people have had fighting off binges that used to derail them for a month or cravings that used to drive them nuts. Look at the inches lost and the pounds dropping. This thread is full of people who may have fit the OP's rant at one time but are taking charge of their lives.

            Personally I appreciated what the OP said even if it was tactless as hell because I know it doesn't apply to anyone here.

            • I am menopausal (42) but even though, seriously?? Since when does one size fit all? I know for a fact n=1 increase carbs and my weight increases too. I tried to follow the choco thing- I went up in weight. Now? I am losing and am happy!

                  • Really? At 28, I'm perimenopausal? At 7000-12000 steps a day, I don't move my fat ass? At near ideal weight, I'm "fat"? They obviously read almost as well as that doctor I fired.
                    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                      • Ya know, today I am not going to worry about tracking and calculating every single bite that goes into my mouth. For the past week, I haven't even come CLOSE to getting over 1200 calories. So, for today. I just don't care. My body has basically told me off. No more eating. Do I have cravings? Oh hell yes. Do I cave to them? No. Do I get hungry a lot anymore? Nope. Here's to a worry free day!

                        • Ok, after several days it has become apparent that I need to eat more. But I am just not hungry. I usually eat 2 or 3 meals (usually 2), the first around 12:00. So today, I attempted to find some decent coffee and try the Bulletproof Coffee thing. Mmmm...Kerrygold butter....

                          • I know fruit isn't the best thing, but I am not consuming in quantity. Here is what I have been doing for those days I'll be working outside all day.
                            Take one can coconut milk, one banana, 1 cup pureed strawberries, a little vanilla. Blend it all together (LOVE my stick blender) pour it into two glasses, keep in the fridge for when I need a shot of energy. This lasts two days with two of us consuming it and does the trick. I take this with me, without the strawberries, when I go on a daylong hike and my energy levels stay consistent.
                            Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

                              • Ignoring people who say dumb stuff is my plan of action.

                                For some reason as long as I keep my fat ratio higher I lose weight. I don't now why it works, but it's what works for me since starting primal. 19+ pounds since mid June prior to that 5 pounds in over 2 years. I'd probably have lost more by now but I went through several months of lower fat, low-moderate carb and my weight just bounced around even when I was exercising way more than I am now. Now I consciously make an effort to eat high fat and the weight is trickling down. I am 1 pound from reaching my first mini goal. I used to ride my bike over 100 miles a week, eating healthy but including fruit and grains. I lost NOTHING. Now I walk about 20 miles a week, bike when I can, ski when I can and the weight is coming off. I understand why some people think it's crazy, I think it's crazy. But, the weight I gained while pregnant 8 years ago is finally leaving and my signs of fertility are improving. Hmmm not a hard decision to stick with this a while and see what happens. But I agree I should spend less time on the computer LOL. Not sure why she felt the need to get all judgmental on us though. Guess some people are just miserable, unhappy people and want to share their grief with whomever will listen.
