same 'problem', my solution
I could go for a long time without, husband not so much, so I devised a plan. We printed numbers 1-7 on paper- each number on its own piece of paper- dropped them in a jar and he got to chose a number (no peeking). Whatever that number is, that is our schedule for a month. 5= every five days, etc.

Of course, if choosing the number one, which equals every day for that month is too much a couple could chose what the most comfortable minimum is for them...
This way we both know what to expect and when- no muss, no fuss!

that sorta takes the sponteneity and romance out of it though............ I think the name is perfect!
MACA so far isn't doing me any help. When its gone I won't be buying more. Seems the best option for us is a night of rum and diet coke! And with my son moving out in the next month - we will have free reign of the house! Close the curtains and turn up the fire!

I'm 47, no kids, hypertension is the only current health issue. New here and liking this thread. Trying to take off 50 lbs and reduce BP which currently runs 155/89. Wondering how well paleo will work for me as I enter peri-menopause. I recently experimented with a vegetarian diet v. paleo: two weeks eating nothing but veggies/fruits, no sugar v. paleo (no nuts/seeds, very little fruit). On vegetarian-lost 1 lb in two weeks. On paleo, 2.5 lbs in 4 days. This stuff works!! Probably could have lost more had I made it to the gym more than once, but there it is.
Cannot wait to get back into shape on paleo!

Don't just think about counseling -- go and get it. It's worth it, I promise.

I am new here as well. 39 yo, no kids, in a LTR with a great guy. I'm 5'5" and I had undiagnosed Hashimotos thyroid disease for 9 years which resulted in a 90 lb weight gain. My high was 225. I am 179 now. Goal weight is 130-135 area although I think I could go as low as 125 and still look good without looking overly thin. I tend to carry a lot of muscle and have very muscular legs, shoulders and arms. When I'm carrying very little body fat, it looks good, though. I just began primal one month ago and have lost 10 lbs so far. I expect I may go up a little as I've been at my parents for a week now and they don't understand the concept of no grain at all. I'm also in a very rural area and access to the good primal types of foods are almost non-existent at the local stores which seem to carry only conventionally grown foods. But once I'm home again I plan to re-commit to being fully primal as I truly believe that this lifestyle is sustainable and I believe in the theory and science behind it.

some of you may appreciate this Aug 2010, scored a bad bout of whooping cough (coughed my guts up all day, every day till November. Such fun!) Add to this the fact that I've had 4 children and as you can imagine, my pelvic floor was shot. I tried the old 'pull up' exercises but it did very little to improve the situation.
Well, on Christmas Eve, I was able to stop a wee!!! First time since the disease. So happy I finally have some control back. (lots of squatting plus kettlebells)
