    I can't wait to get to this point. How long have you been primal?

    What I think is amazing is how lately when I have a little bit of a "cheat," I no longer want to overindulge. A few weeks ago, I was at a friend's house playing board games and he made fresh brownies (to his credit, he used real butter and whole milk instead of veggie-oil and non-fat-"milk"-water). He put them in the middle of the table, where everyone proceeded to dive in. I conceded and had one, and enjoyed it with some whole milk. And then, even tho fresh, warm, tasty-smelling brownies were RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME for an HOUR, I **DID NOT FEEL THE URGE TO HAVE ANOTHER**. I mean I was like, "Oh I *could* eat one, but meh." Whereas before it would have required pure, absolute willpower to refrain from it, and I would have been miserable in the meantime.

    Also this weekend I was at a friend's wedding. I ate mostly paleo all weekend, but I had some bread with cheese/butter and a big piece of their (amazing!) wedding-pie (I have decided that the cake/pie of my friends' weddings and a single piece of good-quality birthday cake on my birthday are not even cheats at all, they are required). I could have easily been hoovering bread and pie all evening, but instead I had a bit, enjoyed it, and then wandered off without much more of a thought.

    A year and three months, but not strictly and continuously. I did have several months of breakthrough bleeding last fall, and I'm still not sure why. But I've been off metformin (for PCOS) since February or so, and have had regular cycles since March/April, I think.

    BIG thing happened here yesterday. Hubby, who is a potato chips every single day guy, asked me to throw them out!! He said they just don't taste good any more and he probably won't eat them again!! This is huge because just a couple of months ago he said he was never going to give up potato chips. I didn't even have to nag!
    Now, if I could just get him to flush the toilet.............

    Another recent one was I tried a bit of rice back in my diet and realise, not even that, bloated and windy - two things I haven't been for three months - experimentation and how the body reacts, nice (well not really) to get first hand example

    Small triumph: I did my first 24 hour intermittent fast! It wasn't pre-planned. I simply was not hungry until 24 hours after having an incredibly nourishing meal (steamed grass-fed pork belly with vegetables and scrambled eggs). And the scale now registers 142. This is officially ten pounds lost in one month.

    Where do you find grass-fed pork? I'm pretty sure that pigs, like humans and bears, are omnivores, and can't eat just grass.
