    Oh man, I don't care how many cultures do the hot/cold bath thing - I hate it! That cold water gives me a heart attack!

    So today is a special-ish day. It's been 6 months since I started paleo! With that I saved my 2 week weigh-in for today. I came in at 273.4. That's only about a pound and a half in 16 days so I'm going to go ahead and call that a plateau but that's still something to be happy with. 59 and a half pounds in 6 months is nothing to snuff at. I'll take it

    I think it's fantastic. I remember in the very old days -- hard to even remember that far back -- but there is a fuzzy memory of your weight starting with a 3!

    Carry on. I'm following your positive take on it all and feeling better already.

    I am ignoring all confusing data regarding PB. Just going back to the very simple stuff. I like simple!

    Oh, and I've been meaning to ask -- how is your sister's diet going? Has she looked at your food and just had to go primal?

    @pam Thanks! As for my sister, as per usual, she has fallen off of the wagon... Though I'll have to make sure. Our last measure in she didn't want to do and the one before she made no progress... So yeah... we'll see.

    @judg I'm just hoping that I can maintain something decent. With the way I'm getting stressed around the house lately with this shitty roommate I'm so scared it's all going to reverse.

    Food journa

    Breakfat- 3 eggs, 2 slices of back bacon, 1tbsp mct oil, 3000mg fish oil, 6000ui Vit D

    Lunch- 1/2 rack ribs, 2 cups mixed red peppers and baby carrots, 1 tbsp mct

    Dinner- 6 months of paleo and I never thought to make a protein salad... Spinach, red pepper, cauliflower, strawberry, baby carrots, garlic, and steak. Topped with goatsmilk yogurt mixed with mustard.

    That protein salad really looks good. Always liked my meat really rare. Just past mooing, my dad used to say:-) There's that goat yogurt I love so much in your dressing. My youngest informed me it wasn't that fattening when he looked at the container I just bought. Guess who's not primal??:-) He understands the whole PB, but still has fatophobia. Hey, new word. Probably not.

    It's funny when we shop. He's totally supportive of me trying to be primal, but he can't help looking at the fat calories in things. Doing primal perfectly and losing a ton of weight would probably help my case! Sounds like a goal. I would think your sister would see your progress and go for primal just watching your joy with the whole thing.

    Oh, forgot to tell you how impressed my youngest is with your results and the way you're going about it. He did almost lose it though when I showed him that great picture of your ham burger!! It was priceless.

    Almost 60 frickin pounds - your body already has to be so much happier.

    With the stressful roommate - I know a thing or two about these tense living situations - rest assured that if you do your thing right, you can at least maintain what you've lost. I think in the last few months it was probably harder for me to lose weight because I was additionally stressing myself out with VLC and job-hunting. The stress was coming at me from every angle! Hopefully you have breaks in the day that are better for you. In the meantime, you can just problem solve on how to not let that person affect you as much. Good time to reflect on what's going to help you manage your stress best. What are you doing so far to try to mitigate it?

    When you're under stress, I figure just maintaining a weight loss is an exceptional victory! Most people don't manage it even without stress. But I somehow think you will manage to lose some anyway, even if it's at a slower pace. Doesn't matter, you'll get there eventually.
