My only frustration so far is that the hair on my legs is growing at an exponential rate. It used to be I could shave them once a month and that was all I needed. Now it's like every 3 days. I haven't noticed if the hair on my head is growing that fast or not, I'll have to check to see how often I'm getting it cut vs. before.

Frustration today: Going grocery shopping after the mostly-vegetarian SO gets back from her trip home and seeing the stuff she buys. Tofu, tortillas, pitas, corn chips, popcorn...
To each their own, though it frustrates me a little for her to see my success, complain about her weight (I think she looks great) and then continue down a path that isn't working for her.
Today's frustration: Even worse. I turned down pizza, my pre-primal 2nd favorite food. And it was free. And there were so may extras left over that they were begging to give away.
But I turned it down and it didn't even faze me. Where did my lack of self-control go??? It was such an awesome crutch!
Primal since January 2, 2013!!!

Whenever I have a problem that makes me worry enough to book an appointment (happens once or twice a year), the problem heals up by the in the 2 or 3 days waiting to see a Dr/Nurse.
Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
I get blunter and more narcissistic by the day.
I'd apologize, but...
I cannot bear to go without a decent night's sleep any more. If I don't get at least 7 hours, I feel like I'm coming down with the flu and I am in bed right after dinner tha next night. I'm not sure if I just felt so crappy all the time before that I didn't notice the effect of not enough sleep or if eating better has made me into a fragile flower.
CW-125, part calorie counting, part transition to primal
GW- Goals are no longer weight-related
If you are feeling the cold, eat more fatty foods.
A Doctor who spends months every year at one or the other of the poles, recommended this. (I wish I could get on his list, but then he would be absent most of the year!) I wonder though; did he get that tip from the Inuit?
Incidentally, the other day I just stocked up with a week' or so supply of expensive, grass fed meat, and wild fish, etc. This afternoon my refrigerator packed up. So now all that lovely food is in the freezer... which I didn't really want to do!

Oh so many frustrating "frustrations".
* I feel guilty when I look at people who are trying to be healthy and/or lose weight eating cardboard while I enjoy my delicious meal.
* It annoys me when during lunch I'm not hungry or don't need even a snack while most of my friends/colleagues are famished and run to the cafeteria for their midday fix. I have to entertain myself otherwise.
* I also have various old medications from some years back and I have to keep stopping by the pharmacy to dispose of them since they've remained unused and passed their expiration date. So much money wasted.
Paleo, what you do to me...
I can't wear jeans more than twice, because they fit out of the dryer with no problem and then get looser. I might have to start wearing belts! I don't like wearing belts!
I am guessing in a couple of weeks, I will actually need new pants. I tried looking up how many lbs of weight loss = a new women's dress size, but there's no universal rule of thumb. Guess I will find out when I get there.
ok I have one really "first world problems" Primal rant. My husband splurged when we remodelled the house, and got us a 36" shiny black glass induction hob/cooktop with a fancy stainless steel backsplash. You would NOT believe the mess that a pan full of bacon makes of it, or how long it takes to restore it to pre-bacon glossiness. Our old crappy electric stove was much less stressful (and also 100% crappier). :P
