    Given the likely need to heal your metabolism, I would suggest that you go for a month before you start tweaking. This plan sounds as if it is feeding your body well nutritionally, good luck!

    Yeah, I'm out of new ideas anyway, so I'll do this for the rest of Sept and Oct., then do a re eval around the end of next month.

    Day 2 of the experiment went well. I felt a little emotionally bingey last night, but I resisted. I was tired and had a weather headache.

    Last night I had play practice for the first time in two weeks, we had a blast.

    My poor husband hit a dog on the NYS thruway on his way to work yesterday. He was going 70 MPH and had an 18 wheeler behind him. There was nothing he could do. Our car is not looking too pretty either, but it is mostly the emotional impact of killing somebody's pet that is hard.

    Oh, no! How sad. Poor dog, poor husband. A horrible thing to happen. Hugs for him. I hope he can get it out of his head.

    Grief Bacon

    Monday 9/24/2012 was my 2 year Primal'versary. It passed without my notice because I had nothing to celebrate. I had intended to hit goal by this point or at least get to 199. In some ways I am sorry that I didn't acknowledge the day. Yes, last year on 9/24 I hit 211 pounds and was celebrating and this year I was 241 lbs, but the benefits of this lifestyle are still with me even though I have gained 30 lbs. I imagine that I will always be fighting this battle with food as I have been for over 40 years. There will be no end of the battle for me, but at least I have not given up.

    I know you are all dying to know the significance of my essay title...I was in the Doctor's office today reading Reader's Digest and learned a new word. Kummerspeck. It is a German word that refers to Excess weight gained from emotional overeating. It translates as "grief bacon" Two other anniversaries are coming up soon. October 10th will mark one year since my Mother's death. October 15th is the two year anniversary of my own near death from pulmonary emboli. Obviously much of my own kummerspeck is related to losing Mom, but my personal experience with death has also caused huge changes in my life. Sometimes even positive change can cause a person to seek shelter in well known comforts. (I just wish I had turned to bacon instead of grief sugar and carbs.)

    I feel as if I am coming out on the other side of something. I have a plan a hope and a desire to make progress. There have been some subtle changes in the last month which tell me that I may be able to regain some control. The true goal, of course, is to stay alive and to live life to the fullest. Cheers to that.

    Grief bacon makes me smile a little. I hope you see the humor in it. All the best to you, Paula. I feel like I've seen some great improvement from what I've read of your journey over my past year and some months here. Cheers!

    I wish there was a way to make my sense of humor come across in my posts. I found the whole grief bacon thing hilarious considering we are Primal.

    Hey Pebbles!

    "Kummer" is also stress and worries and anxieties (just a little bilingual FYI, nothing more). And the Kummerspeck is awesome! (Remind me to give you all the awful-sounding German words I currently know...)

    You should start a new thread, a lot like that iodine thread... headache? Bacon! Bad hair day? Bacon! Weight-loss worries? Bacon! Cellulite? MORE BACON!

    Truly sorry for hubby and the dog on the highway. I have had a hard time down here in Hicksville with all the wildlife I have been responsible for sending back Home (and I am not a speed demon)... but when you drive on bendy, hilly country roads with only two lanes and no shoulders and no lights and surprise oncoming traffic of the fracking-truck/semi/combine/hay bailer type, sometimes you have that split-second decision where it is either drive yourself and your kids into the ditch after dark (or worse) or decide to pray for the possum, ground hog, deer, dog, turkey buzzard, cat, odd songbird, skunk... sigh. I'm just supremely glad I haven't taken out an Amish buggy & horse!

    Hubby says you are hot... fine day!
