Then we'd split the difference. Ha ha so evil.
    You're devious. I like you.

    Thanks Rita. I am definitely enjoying that part. Still fighting with the CFS though. My emphasis is shifting more and more from fighting my weight to fighting my fatigue. I am discovering that I have been my own worst enemy in that department.

    Catching up on stuff here. Yippee for hitting 100 pages! Good to see all the new names.

    SIL's visit was surprisingly enjoyable and not surprisingly not completely primal! I did ok. She's a drinker, so had her beer and wine several days, but that doesn't interest me at all. The ice cream was more the issue, along with a night of pizza. Weight went up, but thankfully no real horrible effects, just some fibro pain. Back on track now though and feeling fine.

    Crazy life has gotten crazier. I will be heading "home" to PA to visit family in a couple weeks, then my mom, dad, 2 nephews, and niece are traveling back with me for a week. They've never been to CA before and my husband and I are beyond excited to have them here! I love my family, we've always been close, so moving 3,000 miles away was a tough choice. Eating will be difficult those 2 weeks, but I know my parents are watching more of what they eat and we will probably cook in some days here.

    To add to the crazy, I will be traveling to LA 5 days a week for the next 13 months. That will be 100 miles each way. The plan is to drive up (hoping for no more than 2 hours), work a 90 minute session, then drive back daily. The offer is a tremendous opportunity, but will be somewhat taxing. My husband, the wonderful man he is (and I'm being completely serious), has agreed to support me and go with me daily and try to find clients up there as well. I'm very happy about that as it will help pass the time and break up the driving. My concern is for the food. I like to "snack" when driving. The schedule will probably be leaving the house at 9 and getting home at 3, so I'm planning on fasting through lunch, which I do a lot of now, but am trying to think of things to have on hand, just in case. Working on getting things into place as I need to lose weight and need to be healthy for this endeavor.

    That's all for my update. Hope everyone is doing great!

    Congrats, Kim. Primal snacks, I guess, or break the snacking habit altogether. I can't figure out why we've gotten into the habit of eating in circumstances that just don't call for it, like TV and movies and travelling. My stepmother used to pack 3 days' worth of sandwiches for a day-long drive. I didn't understand that. We were just sitting, for crying out loud. What did we need so much food for? But we ate it because it was there.

    Seeing as you are going to be travelling regularly, why not play a game with yourself, seeing how long you can make your snacks last? Try to stretch it out longer each time. Or see how much you can have left over at the end. Good luck with it all.

    I can't remember who referred me to Dr. Myhill's website for chronic fatigue, but thank you so much! A gold mine there. I was almost in tears as I found out what had been really going on in my body all this time, and how much I had been hurting myself by pushing myself. I had started to learn a lot of that from experience, but now I am taking it much more seriously.

    I started to disagree with this because I was definitely raised more by my mom than my awesome stepdad (not because dad was a dick; he was deployed overseas a lot), then I realized you are talking about men, and...hmmmmmmm.

    My brother is a great guy, but had a habit in his 20s and 30s of moving back home with mom. Where I moved out when I was 17, he kept coming back home. I think he always treated his girlfriends well, and I know he's treating his wife well. But, well, he had three sisters.

    I don't know if it was the lack of a strong male role model or not, though, that made him so...passive. Our bio-dad is a good man, but he can be a bit hard to "get", and my brother's formative years were spent with him. Having a father who isn't easily pleased can be just as bad as one that doesn't exist. At some point, I think my brother just stopped trying, and it took him years to dig out of that.

    He did, though....his wife gave birth to their first, and was diagnosed shortly after with ALS. It's heart-wrenching. Her time is very limited. He's completely devoted to her and his daughter, though. I think some of that comes from the parents he had (and very specifically my mom), and the values they instilled in him.

    Onalark........ I am so sorry to hear about the babies diagnosis. That is aweful. What a cruel way to come into this world, and to be taken out of it so quickly. I hope the people caring for her medical needs can keep her painfree. I don't understand why babies have to suffer - it just isn't right.

    It's reversed, Tomi. The mom was diagnosed. The baby is fine.

    (Thank you for your concern. It's been on my mind a lot lately. This is a case where "have they tried paleo?" fixes nothing. Nothing.)
