I've been lurking.....and enjoying you et al in these posts
[QUOTE=Primal Papa;976558]I forgot to add, that I hope to rejoin the YMCA this weekend, but I have one helluva busy schedule on Friday and Saturday. I have a lot to do around the house tomorrow, and then I have t DJ a grade school costume dance. On Saturday we are going to a wine and food festival ( paid for before I started primal )....That is in the afternoon, and then I am going to go chaperone a CYO dance for a local school.[/QUOTE]
Sounds like a busy life! I am interested in your posts because some years ago, a child said that about me in a public space and it turned me; she was right. I was fat although always active and without health issues.
The oreo package in your cupboard can stay there until your family decides not to have it. What has helped me (although I do have support) is that each time I have a yen for something (not very often any more after 1.5 years) to ask myself, "What is it about right now that is causing me to consider having something that I know is harming my body?" Years ago I read a book by Janine Roth (don't recall the title right off) about compulsive behaviours and how she overcame binge eating. At the time I used her ideas to quit smoking, and did not crave a smoke since.
Keep it up Primal Papa and have a great weekend!
