My triumph - I no longer feel like I have rheumatoid arthritis, or fibromialgia, or whatever it was that made my muscles and joints hurt all the time, like I was a little old lady.
I suspect that I have a wheat allergy, causing systemic inflammation and pain. Going Paleo got me off wheat long enough to discover it. Last time I ate wheat at my cheat-meal, I hurt for three days. I'm going to do one more experiment later this week, and then go to an allergist.
With the systemic inflammation stopped, my ordinary pollen allergies are less severe, and I'm getting fewer migraines.
At any rate, I feel better than I have in years!

20 years old. Now discovering that boners get much harder than what I had previously. I basically added an inch with primal because of a stronger erection.
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
This whole "eating to satiation" thing is a total triumph for me. Now that I'm truly "nourished", I relate to food totally differently. It turns out that all that obsession and compulsion was simply how a perpetually over-fed and undernourished brain relates to food.
How f*king easy it is to eat well when your brain is well-fed... it almost makes me furious to think about how long I tortured myself, and well-meaning CW advice-givers tortured me.
My personal "in the face of cheap Halloween candy everywhere" triumph: I have not bought a single sack of mini Junior Mints boxes. NOT EVEN ONE.

“Falconry is not a hobby or an amusement; it is a rage. You eat and drink it, sleep it and think it. You tremble to write of it, even in recollection. It is as King James the First remarked, an extreme stirrer up of passions.” --T.H. White, The Godstone and the Blackymor
