    This is SO frustrating. I'm going on a cruise this spring and I have absolutely no formal wear that fits! I will be FORCED to go shopping. What ever will I do?

    In the past, when I would get zits, I would just deal with them as a matter of course and would barely even notice them. Now, I only get zits after imbibing in too much crappy food, so I know I only have myself to blame for that giant lump on the face staring me in the face.

    Having to discover -- all on my lonesome! -- that parsnips and turnips taste great and are about as versitile as the potato! Why didn't anyone tell me how lovely they are raw with a bit of sea salt or dip, cooked into a hearty stew, par-boiled and chilled to add body to a savory smoothie... with nowhere near the pasty/starchy/carb-y taste of taters!

    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

    Parsnips steamed and mashed make great pancakes too mixed with a little egg.

    The other day I was getting in the shower and looked in the mirror and was honestly a little creeped out by how skinny I look, im so used to there being so much MORE of me.

    It's so embarrasing when I'm doing something with a buddy and at 11 am and we haven't eaten yet, he's literally sick with hunger, while I haven't even though about needing food yet.

    Some of my old cute clothes would fit again except that the last time I wore them I was more skinny fat than I am now, and I'll have to have them altered to fit my awesome LHT muscles.

    Also, it's embarrassing to have my partner brag about how great my cooking is since we went primal because I don't want to admit that my secret ingredient is butter, not some magic culinary talent.

    And filling in the cut sheet for the pig we've ordered and then the bison we're cow-sharing is so time consuming.

    Ooooh, sorry you had to wait so long! I'm still easing into turnips, but I've loved parsnips since I was a kid. Here's what we do: cut into manageable pieces, parboil them till almost tender, then saute in butter and a little sea salt till golden.... Oh, my...

    I'm feeling better and looking better, and finally got the gumption up to put blue back in my hair. First it refused to bleach, then it didn't want to take the blue dye. Stupid healthy hair . . .
