  • Apparently I'm not allowed to IM the department that is a resource for clarifying information. I have to call them. I have been IMing them for years because I don't want to fucking talk to them. I just want the fucking answer to my fucking question. But that's, apparently, not fucking procedure.

    • I lost weight when I weighed today so I'm happy that my hormone induced snacking fury didn't do any damage!
      Not to pick on you, specifically - but:

      GOTD. Body weight is no indicator of inflammatory conditions inside the body. Period. That's like saying, "Well, I broke down and drank a bottle of soybean oil, but my toes didn't fall off so it didn't hurt me at all!". As for damage to your fat loss plan, that makes sense. But you'd be amazed at how many people just believe that thin = healthy, regardless of dietary composition.

      One of my Facebook folks is doing weight watchers and eating god-knows what kind of McFood to do it. Thinks he's improving his health. Makes me so sad, it turns into mad.

      • Business lunch at a Mexican place today and ordered a chicken fajita salad. Told them to put the sour cream on the side and to put the salad on a plate instead of in a deep-fried carb-loaded tortilla bowl... but it was served to me in the tortilla bowl with a huge glob of sour cream on top. Ugh.

        Weight does NOT equal health -- ditch the scale, don't be a slave to it!

          not judging , just noting...

          You make me wonder if i were genetically gifted if i would have the same point of view as you ( not assuming you are genetically gifted just knowing that I am SO not there )

            This sounds oddly sharp for you, Quelson. You're usually lovable. You're one of my favorite success stories, too!

              As i said just noting.... we tend to think very much alike... at least that is what i think.

              and while it is probably difficult to articulate.... sometime i wonder if my attitude is disconnected to my reality ( i think that is how i want to articulate it)

              I think much like a thinner person even though i dont have a "right " to it.


              I didnt intent to be unlovable :-) wasnt meant to inflame.

                • Last week I stayed with my folks for vacation. I found this to be an incredibly difficult time for eating, as my husband and I had no money to contribute to making meals. Basically we had to eat either what my mom cooked, or wherever they chose to go out. This was invariably very high-carb, low protein. I did the best I could, mostly veggies and fruit, but couldn't avoid the stuff I normally don't eat. (Fast food, pizza, etc) By the end of vacation, I actually was feeling ill from the crap food.

                  My mom tells me yesterday, she had an appt with her endocrinologist. Her blood sugars are too high, and diet along with meds are not managing them. Doc told her to continue to eat a low carb diet, and that if things don't improve she will have to go on insulin. My mom also has celiac disease, and spends tons of money trying to substitute for wheat with all kinds of crap.

                  Mom told her doctor she will be able to get her blood sugars under control. Why? How???

                  BECAUSE SHE'S BASICALLY PRIMAL ALREADY!!!

                  Are you kidding me Mom?!?

                  • I chipped a tooth on an olive pit yesterday and my dentist can't get me in until tomorrow a.m.
                    In the meantime it's not sharply painful, just kinda ache-y.

                        That seriously sucks! I was lucky and ended up with only a smashed garden, but I know people who had multiple windows on their homes smashed out.

                          GOTD: Realizing that I had a really shitty guitar teacher ten years ago. He made me think I was scum and weak willed when I finally had to quit my lessons. I kept telling him for a month that it felt like my fingers were bleeding from the strings and my left hand was useless after all my practices. RATHER THAN RECOMMEND ME BEGINNER NYLON STRINGS AND RESTRING MY GUITAR - he said that there was nothing wrong and I needed to get over it. Never picked up a guitar until today. Nylon strings are absolutely amazing. Time to get some callouses growing!

                          • Had to go to Canada last week for a (boring as hell) conference. Came back to Egypt and got off the plane sick (sinus, stopped up, etc) and to top it off, they lost my bag.

                            Got home and crashed, slept for 14 hours straight and felt better. Or I should say that I slept through 14 hours except for the fucking phone calls from people wanting to give me medicine!

                            I get sick, I sleep it off. I don't need chemicals, my immunity system is healthy enough to sort this out on its on, thank you very much.
