They still check regular blood sugar, though it's becoming rarer at clinics because most folks who need to check theirs on a regular basis have a home glucometer.

    Sigh...still no results!
    Update -- and frustration...

    Our results came in today, but I had the day off with mega errands to run, so didn't get to stop by the clinic and get mine.

    Hopefully I'll be posting great news tomorrow!

    They're mailing the results...so several more days. :-(

    New frustration -- just can't enjoy the Food Network anymore! Used to watch it almost religiously!
    Now if they'd just get a Paleo/Primal show going.........

    It's illegal to sell raw milk here. I can't even find unhomogenised. (fond childhood memories of top-of-the-milk.)

    Today's frustration: since we've been eating so much more fatty food, the plates tend to have more fat on them when they go in the dishwasher. Some things are coming out still greasy…

    Oh, I have that problem. My dishwasher leaves a thin layer of bacon scum on everything, and I rinse the dishes before I put them in, too. Maybe it's time to run an empty cycle and clean the thing out.

    I'm on the fence about the raw milk thing. I'm perfectly fine with family operations and cow shares and I think it's dumb that that's illegal - my great-granddad drank milk and cream from his own cows and swore it was the healthiest thing you can do for yourself. (He lived to be 96!) He would skim the top off the milk can and put it on his cereal, and in the mornings, during milking time, would strip the cow right into his coffee cup.

    I'm so jealous. I can't wait until I can do this myself.

    I asked my non-primal partner if I was annoying him with my enthusiasm for my new healthy lifestyle. He's diabetic so I may have inadvertently(!) been nagging him a bit. He said no, and that he was glad I was feeling better and seemed more energetic. He certainly seems to enjoy having nice meaty dinners cooked for him, and having whole fat dairy instead of low fat.

    His only complaint so far, came today: 'YOUR BOOBS HAVE SHRUNK!! I hope they don't disappear!' I had to reassure him that although they would probably shrink further, they certainly won't disappear.

    oh Goosejuggler (I think I'd pay to see that) I long for that problem. As a matter of fact, I took out some clothes that are too small for me and tried not to cry about one day fitting into them again. Whatta dork.
