    In other news,

    I am thankful today for being able put my big girl panties on and deal with my car situation. I did it all by myself because I needed to for me and did not want to burden my husband. He said he is very proud of me. There have been times in my life when I was overwhelmed by a situation and just expected him to take care of things. Another benefit of Primal?, my near death experience? who knows?

    BTW my new car is Awesome. I even picked a pretty and unique color. I came home yesterday all excited, but knew that I had to get my husband's permission to spend about $1000 more than planned to get the model I wanted. He agreed that the higher model was a better idea. (The low end model had roll up windows and manual door locks. Real old school. lol) I was effusive about the color and the rear spoiler. He said "a sexy new car for a sexy woman". <3

    I have only dipped my toes into the 'eat moar fat' thread, and not even enough to analyze percentages. I am interested in the 75% fat, and wondering if it will work like a fat fast does, to really cut cravings(along with the low carbohydrate.) I know you have emotional bingeing issues, as well, but I'll still be following with interest to see. As well as your general success, Pebbles.

    As for your Q, you're still below where you started, you're much healthier, and you have a good idea of several things to try. A good Q+.

    Yay for the car!

    I have been running at about 50% or more fat, 35% protein, and 15% or less carb and it feels pretty good. I like veggies too much to get much below 10% carbs. I don't remember that you have actually tried this iteration so thinking this could be it for you! I am excited.

    Congrats on the car.

    This is my third new car, but the first one that I chose for me instead of for price or practicality. It meets those criteria as well.

    Hi Paula. I'm too far behind to get caught up at work. Sorry to hear about the car troubles. My car just turned over 160,000 miles so I'm anticipating it developing problems at some point in the next year. With any luck we'll drive it well past 200k. It's a Ford Fusion (I saw you were looking at Fiestas on Facebook... not for me. I didn't like that car when it was out before so I don't like it now. lol). My next car will hopefully be a Ford Edge. Used, of course.

    I'm only going to tell you guys this, I'll deal with FB later...I may have counted my chickens too early so to speak. I may not be able to buy the car.

    My credit union is dragging their feet on my application which usually means a denial. The dealership will finance, but at a 15-17 percent interest rate. For reference, a person with normal credit would get about 6.9%. At the interest rate they are offering, I would pay 23,500 for a 16,000 car. Yes, I would pay for the car 1.5 times. Idiots.

    The sweet little car salesman who showed me pics of his daughter is now sweetly demanding that I come in and talk to the finance person face to face. Yesterday when I called to have him run the credit app he tells me that he can't run the app without a CC deposit. Then when I balked, my credit app was miraculously run without a deposit. When I talked to him later, he said the car payment was nearer to $400/month than $300. I asked what the interest rate was. He said he didn't know...which is bullshit. I know that there are people who will say "I can afford X payment" without realizing that a high rate will make the car cost X more. Sorry Buddy, I am not one of those stupid people. GRRR I hate car sales. Same BS tactics every time.

    Today I will get an answer from the CU. If it is a no, I will then call my salesman and say I cannot do business with you unless you can get the rate down to 9%.

    So embarrassed that I have been crowing about my new car.

    Yikes. Hoping you can get it resolved and do end up able to get your new car.

    I'll get a car regardless, but it may be someone else's $1000.00 used car.
    I figure I can get my credit score up in 6 months by paying off my other car, paying everything else on time and disputing any false info. I did this once before when we went to get our first mortgage. At the time, our credit scores started around 625. I fixed everything that was erroneous and the next month they went up to 650+.

    I am keeping my chin up.
