    What I've found is that I'm not that hungry come lunch time. A good paleo breakfast (eggs, bacon, etc) really fills me up. I think, if I worked outside the home, I'd be able to say 'no thank you' to whatever food is lying around.

    Having shrunk from a size 16/XL to somewhere around 10/M, none of my clothes fit anymore. I have one turtleneck and two pairs of jeans that are only one size too big, and that's it. Even my underwear are too big! And of course I can't pull out old skinny clothes to wear because I had <i>never</i> been this size.

    This is really only a frustration because I've been unemployed, and couldn't afford to replace anything. That's been fixed, though, so now my frustration is that I'm going to have to go through the hassle of shopping for an entirely new wardrobe and try to attempt fashion this time. At least now I'll have a higher chance of finding clothes that actually fit me!

    My sister, mother and I are all having the same frustrations re the looseness of clothes. It seems that each time I buy a new outfit it gets too loose on me. Actually, I am the closest to my goals on this journy so my sis and mom tend to get some of my clothes but cause we're built differently, it difficult to pass on all of them.

    The lovely outfits that I hadn't worn in 10 years, when I was at my thinnest, are also now becoming too loose on me.

    The worst though is shoes. I dropped from a size 6 to a size 5 in shoe size and am praying to God I don't lose any more weight on my feet cause I don't think women's sizes come in under 5.

    Still, these "frustrations" are much better to have than the previous frustrations of not fitting into anything cute cause you're too big. For the first time in my life, I bought designer jeans (on sale). When I was trying out different brands in size 6/4 everything fit. I've never had such a pleasant jeans buying experience in my life.

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    That my small cast iron pot of hamburger soup (1/2 lb ground beef, 1/4 lb pork sausage, diced green peppers, onions, bone broth, seasonings) has lasted for 3 whole days ~~ and it gets better the longer it sits on the stove top turned to very low heat, ready to scoop out a bowlful any time we're ready. The quantity used to be (not quite) enough for one meal for the spousal unit, DS and I!

    Warm and filling for these snowy days... totally replaces the old cold weather 'comfort' foods of our SAD days!

    I definitely feel that my sense of taste has improved dramatically. I am catching new subtle flavors of food that I never tasted before, and am noticing how combinations of food can create entire new experiences. For example, ive found that red leichester cheese and malbec red wine creates a taste in my mouth not unlike a rich, earthy, chocolaty sensation.

    However, this new taste experience is not always positive. I just found out that truffle-infused pate and kalamata olives together = wet dog.

    Since I only need to eat twice a day, and one of them is a breakfast (or leftovers), I don't get to try as many delicious recipes as I want. In due time, in due time.


    Going to a restaurant isn't fun anymore, everything tastes like crap. I end up getting just a steak (or fish) with a side of (eww) steamed vegetables, but why bother when it's so tasteless? I can make that 5 stars at home if I wanted to.


    My boyfriend is sad that I lost all my butt. Agreed, I'm sad too... I promised I would work out my butt if he likes it so much :P


    In bed, he's always complaining about my sharp toenails. AGAIN? I just cut them!


    My hair is growing like an invading plant. OK, actually, I love that! I want it down to my thighs. But I know soon I will start getting disapproving comments from my family.


    Sometimes I nearly burn dinner, because I was too busy admiring my curves in the mirror.


    I have to watch friends and family eat what they eat with deep anguish, when they're so unhealthy. I have to watch children growing up eating mac and cheese on a daily basis. I cry on the ride home :-(

    That is amazing. I would eat all of that as part of one meal. Then again, I lift heavy 4x/week and usually only eat 2 meals a day. It definitely sounds delicious, though. I'm getting into soup/stew mode.

    How about:

    What a bother, soon I'll have to buy lots of cute winter skirts and knit some funky socks, because for the first time in my life, my legs are TOO PRETTY not to show off!

    That's going to be expensive!

    Went through a box of old pants that I'd set aside about 2 years ago. I thought I'd put them away because they were all too small for me at the time, but soon discovered that most of them (about 8 pairs out of the dozen in there) are too friggin' short!

    Why the hell did I keep them???? Dunno, probably my wheat-addled brain thought that if I took up less room around, they'd have more length?

    (they're now at the nearest Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store... I hope a short, wide person can use them.)
