  • -I can't eat chocolate that's under 55% any more, because all I taste are the chemicals.
    -Sometimes I don't feel like eating for a day, and I don't.
    -Quality butter rarely lasts long enough to cook with.
    -I'm drinking a lot more decent fluids (tea, shakes, water, water, water) rather than sugary stuff or energy drinks.
    -I'm spending more money on teas and coffees, as I drink them for pleasure, rather than for caffeine and now I actually CARE what they taste like.
    -I feel like I'm responsible for the income of an entire nation's worth of egg-farms.
    -I forget to have breakfast, so I can't put a breakfast on my blog.
    -I have my best figure yet, but it's starting to get too cold to show off.
    -I don't feel I "have" to buy/eat anything, although I seem to have a few "staples".
    -I have a box of Vitamin D supplements I don't know what to do with.
    -People comment on: my shape, my health, how many eggs I eat, how I eat eggs in anything, how I sometimes don't eat.
    -I'm working out how to almond-batter-fry chicken to make it taste like KFC for my fiance.
    -People waste my time asking for diet advice when they rarely take it.

      This one, definitely! My only consolation is that I should be reaching my goal around May, just when it starts warming up. So that'll be nice, to rip off all the layers and shock people.

          Damn... Is it wrong that, even as a female, I envy you?

          • Pissing off my wife...Just realized I haven't had a cold, allergies or the flu since I started Paleo. My wife who eats what would be considered healthy in a CW way, has not gone totally Paleo. She is a teacher and often picks up a cold or mild flu from her students. Normally I would have ended up getting sick as well, not now. It's beginning to irritate her...Ha Ha!

              I still get ill sometimes but, not as badly. For example, there was a bug going round. One of the ones that "breed in the muscles" or a "man flu". Pretty much everyone got it. "Fit and healthy" people were off sick, it hit them so hard. The skinny and fat (those with less muscle or less dense muscle) had it, but it didn't take them out, so to speak. I think I was the only "fit and healthy" person who managed without a day off.

                  Happened this morning! I was expecting to be EXHAUSTED because I couldn't get my body to sleep last night. Apparently it just wanted less sleep. First time that's happened. Feels brill.

                  • With 40 inch shoulders and a 32 inch waist I can't find shirts that fit. They are all too loose at the waist or tight or dig into my arm pits.

                      Geek is the same way. Try Express and Old Navy, those tend to work for him. For Old Navy, I think it's the vintage cut, or something like that. He occasionally gets lucky at the GAP and Dillard's.
                      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!"

                        I'm starting to get that way too :-( [ or is it :-) ]. I have lots of medium size t-shirts that dig into my armpits. I really like some of them a lot (band t-shirts and stuff), but they look kind of ridiculous on me now. They bunch up alot around/below my chest.

                          This post made me laugh, I was beginning to think I am abnormal - who's boobs get bigger when losing weight???? And my hips and arse look bigger because my waist an stomach are smaller! Lol :-)

                            Same problem, 40" chest and 30" waist. Just realized 1/3 of my shirts don't fit anymore. Glad I kept some fat boy clothes.

                            • I can't imagine buying clothes for fit men. My husband is slender with a small upper body and even clothes sized medium are HUGE over the stomach. Target has some athletic cuts, but I think they are for men like him- athletic=no beer gut, but they seem to fit his shoulders and chest which are not built. I think athletic is code for you don't have a gut.

                              I guess that is why you still see body builders in those awful Zubah pants and crop tops, LOL!

                              • I've been having more issues with jeans, lately, more than shirts. My wife manages to find decent shirts at Express or somewhere (I guess I don't really know).

                                However, with the lifting I've been doing, all of the 29-30" waist jeans I got a couple years ago are now too tight in the thighs. I can't even take a full normal stride wearing those jeans, even though the waist still fits fine. Thankfully the Lucky Brand loose fit jeans are pretty awesome. No one else seems to be jeans for guys that lift. Even my boxer briefs are too tight in the thighs these days, and tend to ride up.

                                My leg lifts are going much more smoothly than my upper-body lifts. :-[
