    Hello everyone! Newbie here :P I've been Primal for about 7 weeks now and a couple of amusing frustrations include:

    1.) The belt I just bought a month and a half ago is now doing nothing to hold my pants up.

    2.) I look like a self-absorbed narcissist because every time I pass a mirror I pause to look at myself....not in vanity, but out of shock! For having "only" lost 15 pounds I feel like the visual difference is more significant. The difference in how I *feel* certainly is.

    3.) Nowadays, I of course get hungry less. But the weird thing is, when I do get hungry, rather than getting tired and irritable, as I always did and most people I know do, I seem to get a weird surge of energy, which tends to annoy people haha. I have no idea why this is, actually.

    Having to admit that your favourite, expensive jeans bought on an overseas trip really are too big in a not cool kind of way.
    Finding out that another fave local chain doesn't actually make the on-sale jeans you want in the size you need - did they start dropping sizes as the general population gets bigger??
    Finding new interesting threads on MDA and spending hours reading them when you really should be doing something else - like putting it all into action!

    GAWDZ ALL THE TIME. The scent drifts through my apartment, so bacon in the morning at the back of the apartment lingers in the front room (living room) all day. Bacon is my scent, especially on the weekends.

    For y'all, it's bacon. For me, it's garlic. Our house ALWAYS smells faintly or reeks of garlic, even if it's vanilla candle with a touch of garlic because we were trying to make the house smell less like food.

    Today it was answering "Are you OK?" to someone that hadn't seen me in a while. Losing all of this weight rather quickly had this person thinking I must be sick because the way I eat "surely" couldn't have anything to do with my weight loss.

    SW - 191
    CW - 162

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

    OK I got a sunburn this weekend... doing a beach workout with 140 lbs sandbags =)

    Now I smell like coconut oil all day. Makes for an interesting cologne.

    I smell like coconut oil because it's pretty much all that I use anymore for personal care products;

    oil pulling then dry brushing for teeth -- coconut oil

    bathing -- wash with water, wash hair with vinegar, then rinse, then add coconut oi for a bit, then rinse that. nice.

    moisturizing -- coconut oil

    deodorant (seriously!) -- coconut oil.

    ta-dah! done.

    A new "frustration" for me is now that DW has gone primal she is looking sooo much better. I mean she no longer has a belly (gut for us men) so on the occasion when she walk around the house in her lil panties (boy shorts oh my) They look tons better on her. Because of this I can't help but get preoccupied with thoughts of jumping her bones. I know way TMI. But the frustrating part is we are parents of a little one and we can't act on my desires at that moment. She's only been PB for about 6 or 7 weeks and I can already see a dramatic improvement in her physically and mentally. I can't imagine what she will look and act like 6 months in. I might have to tie the kid up in the back yard for a little while and say woman I'm taking you! Lol j/k but please don't report me to CPS.
    All time high weight 262 lbs
    Primal since Spring 2012
    Start PB Weight: 240 lbs ish
    Current Weight: 220lbs ish
    Goal Weight:190-200 lbs
    All on a 6ft. 1/2 inch frame.

    I can't wait to meet my abs for the first time in my life. We gotta lot of catching up to do.

    I love this way of eating and hope to be able to help others.
