Eating primal is definitely sexy, there's something very animal-like and instinctual in it. And Pebbles yes I feel it too after coming off the hormones (they were suppressing my periods and made me gain loads if weight). As you become more comfy in your body and your self image improves, it's natural to feel sexier. It's all in the mind see?
Self-esteem builds confidence and desire. The right paddle certainly helps
Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.
Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
Love the kakaking euphemisms too btw especially since my BF and I go out in his double kayak often (but not often enough for me if we are following the double-entendre )
Just catching up on the thread, tricky all this global communication and time zone differences! I love the kayaking metaphor, I love to kayak, white water rivers, oceans, lochs, you name it, solo or double! LOL!

He's only 56 now, and this was five or so years ago -- I was so furious with that doctor and baffled that my formerly "let's do chores naked" guy shut down completely and wasn't interested in fixing this, of all things. For the rest of our lives? That is bonkers. Well, it didn't turn out to be the rest of our lives since he walked out on me, but you know what I mean.
I don't know if the relationship disintegrated because of this widening gap (and my anger and resentment) or if the gulf between us grew and grew because I'm just a pain in the ass that way, which ensured we'd never work it out. I guess it's all the same, really.
This thread made me wonder if finding this lifestyle earlier might have made a difference (he has a terrible family health history with ALL SORTS of inflammatory diseases killing off everyone but his sister by now [and she has lupus], which partially explains the death-grip obsession with biking for CW health). But I think I'm just reaching for ways to continue to make it my fault.

Geez, I left the thread overnight and you guys went kayaking without me!
I told my husband about what I started here. He was very interested in what you all had to say. I think he may finally check out MDA! Thanks.
Keep on with whatever floats your kayak...
