  • after almost a month primal I am wearing a hand me down work uniform because my own is falling off :-D The hand me down trousers are a little baggy, hoping I'll get a smaller size next month!

    • I'm beginning to get bored of having to constantly lift my t-shirt every time one of my friends says:

      "But you can't eat all that butter and animal fat! It's bad for you and it'll make you really fat and unhealthy!"

      (t-shirt goes up)

      "oh, you have a six pack....but that doesn't make any sense, you eat all that fat, you should be fat, I don't understand......"

      friend then normally wanders away looking confused.

      • I miss baking. I was a taking cake decorating classes right before I went paleo/primal, and I was a DAMN good baker. I made caramel from scratch. Now I only bake once a month, to take a cake to the monthly team meeting, and I feel like a crack pusher. XD But darnit, it's the only time I can bake!

        • My friends no longer complain that I "never eat anything".

          I have no real excuse to lock myself in the house for the 2 days before my period anymore.

                  You gave me a good giggle! Thanks...and yeah, I'm past the period thing, but my mood swings are a lot better. I used to get kind of wacko when the carbs wore off...

                    • I read somewhere that the average American throws away 4.5 lb of stuff per day. I started thinking about it and realized Geek and I throw out around 20 lb of stuff as a family of 2+ the dog per week (1 trashbag of stuff.) That includes plastic water bottles and jugs because we're bad about remembering to fill up the reusable containers. If we cut those out, it's probably closer to 15 lb per week. After I realized that, my next thought was "How on EARTH does 1 person throw away 4.5 lb of crap per day?" It took several minutes of thinking before I remembered that not everyone is primal/ paleo.

                      • Boyfriend and I use one kitchen-sized trash bag per week, even when we go grocery shopping (so there'd be extra trash from the meat packaging) or empty the cat litter box. I don't know how much that comes out to in poundage.

                          Y'all are probably in the same ballpark as us, 'cause that how much we have, volumetrically.

                          • I had a plate slip out of my hands and fall on my foot because my fingers were all buttery from making quiche.

                            • I am losing weight, but damn.... spending money on shopping. I've said this a million times, but I spent 38 years being too fat to wear stylish clothes. And I am a god damn fashion junkie. Just dropped another $100 at Anthropologie on a gorgeous purple silk dress.

                              It's like- I want it all. New jeans. New dresses. New skirts. God only knows what is going to happen to my credit card when I reach my weight goal.

                              Oh- my other obsession. Cowboy boots. Always wanted some. Calves too fat. Now they fit with that nice gap between the upper and my leg. So it's not even like the shoe want is getting a rest.

                              Grok. Must be more grok like in shopping habits. But then I see a cute fur vest. And I don't look a yeti in it.

                                Aw man, you just reminded me of how much I've always wanted those too, but couldn't wear them for the same reason. Well, with any luck, my calves will STAY too fat and I won't ever have to budget for them.
