    It's my husband and my 4th wedding anniversary today and we're celebrating with some delicious looking grass-fed beef NY strips. I stood at the store and marveled at their marbling for like forever. Then the butcher guy and I talked meat for a while. I think I'm going to make some acorn squash with it.

    IDK why, but I am starving again today. So far I've eaten: 2 Tonka bars (which are amazing, btw), a bunch of carrots, a buttload of pumpkin seeds and some bbq'd pulled pork.
    I just pulled out the big guns... I'm now eating some damned coconut oil.

    I've decided that I am going to ditch artificial sweeteners again. They're kind of my Achilles heel. I know exactly how terrible they are and why they're bad for me but I keep going back to my diet coke because I am extremely dumb. I've made it all of today with none, and I feel like I ate way less.

    I just bought "Why we get fat" yesterday. I haven't really read any Taubs yet, but since going primal my belief in "calorie restriction=weight loss" has gone down the tubes.

    I also ordered some of those Tanka bites. They're awesome. <3

    I just ate an entire pack of bacon by myself, and I feel extremely good about that decision.

    It's my 3 month anniversary of being primal and I think I am going to propose to it. I want to live this way forever.

    Any diet that makes me feel not guilty about eating bacon is a keeper. <3

    Thanks! I give all the credit to bacon, which apparently made me lose 4lbs today! I ate a whole pack yesterday by myself!

    My husband left for airborne school today and will be gone for 3 weeks so I am going to work on losing more weight while he's gone to look better for him when he gets back. I always feel bad because I think he's haaaawt and I look like crap on a stick after having babies. I'm going to start taking better care of myself. Maybe even wax my caterpillar eyebrows. I made a big step by packing up all of my maternity and frumpy clothes. I will no longer leave the house in sweats. I might even put on makeup.

    I've decided that I am going to deal with non-specific cravings by eating coconut oil. I fry lots of things in it, but I rarely just eat it by the spoonful. But I should, so I am going to. We'll see if this curbs my "bored" eating because it's just one flavor. It also should fill me up without raising insulin levels.

    Lately I have been sabotaged by buffalo jerky. Specifically the Tonka bites that Mark recommended. They are so delicious it's horrific. And at a whopping 7g of sugar in one scant serving (4 bites, do you know anyone that can only eat 4 measly bite-sized bites of beef jerky?)
    Well they make me hungry. So hungry I eat the whole bag (210 calories, but 21g of carbs.) Then I get hungry for more things. So I won't be buying them again. (They were cray-cray expensive too at $6 for 3 servings.) I can do without.


    I also started exercising. All of my weight loss thus far has been without exercise. But even if it doesn't help me lose weight, it feels good.

    Make your own beef jerky. Less crap, more tasty. I slice a lean roast thinly (partially frozen meat works best but it does make your fingers cooooold!) and marinate it for 12 hours or so in a 3:2 ratio of tamari sauce and maple syrup. That sounds like a lot of maple syrup, but it ends up being way less sugary than commercial stuff and it provides nice acidity and helps dry the meat. I have a little smoker in my back yard and it takes about 12-18 hours to finish a batch (less in summer when it's not pouring with rain). Those little smokers are only about $50 and worth every penny. Also, when you know what work goes into it, you're more likely to ration it and not eat too much! I actually divide the batch so everyone in the family gets a baggy - those who gobble (husband and child) don't have beef jerky for as long as I do. Ha ha.

    Thanks so much!

    I'd have to do it without the tamari because my little one is allergic to soy, but that sounds totally awesome. I never realized I could make it myself! I am so going to do that! We don't have a smoker but I bet I could talk my husband into it. I mean, who doesn't want more jerky in their life?!
