    el_barto - I look forward to the day I can say that! I honestly don't think I've ever been able to do one in my life so way to go!

    Bacon roses - now that's one I've gotta try! I think I'll use asparagus for stems.

    Improved dental health!

    Now, i don't want to say that it's because many people here have frighteningly terrible teeth, but our new dentist loves us.

    First, Dh had his dental appointment today (They divide the dentist adn the cleaning -- very weird). They did the thorough look-see and the guy was *impressed* with the cleanliness, strength of the teeth and gums. This is great, considering it has been 1.5 years since our last appointments AND back then, he had some kind of gum issue (receding gums, pulling away from the tooth). he mentioned it to the dentist, and the dentist said there is no sign at all of what the other dentist was finding.

    So totally clean bill of health on the dental side of things for DH!

    OH my triumph! While on the road for work today, I looked in the rear view mirror and thought my face looked different, possibly thinner. I promptly then freaked out, mentally convinced myself that no I was actually fatter, and needed to stuff myself with donuts - my normal reaction to weight loss - AND I resisted!!

    At dinner tonight with some friends, they also said my face looks thinner. So maybe there's hope

    I attended a conventions of dietitians yesterday and managed to stick to not only a Primal diet, but a Whole 30 diet for the whole day. Avoided croissants, butter, coffee cream, caesar salad with croutons, a huge cheese platter and large home-made style cookies, all former poor control foods for me. I took my own coffee (with coconut milk) and my own lunch (a smoked porkchop with home-made mayo for dipping), and simply made mention of the fact that I don't eat wheat as my reason for avoiding the buffet table items. Worked! Planning is everything!

    This about sums up the root cause of the obesity epidemic.

    Awesome job on resisting temptations and planning ahead!
