    You know, that is completely true. My sister found a Twinkie under her bed when she moved - it had to have been there at least seven years. It looked like it had just been unwrapped. I'm serious. Still soft and everything.

    Beef stew, yes!

    KeeryK- thank you. That gives me a real boost. And I have been inspired by others in their journals; it is nice to know I am passing it on.

    I am finding this 'waiting until I am hungry' a little annoying. I was hungry for sure in the morning, but waiting for lunch, because if I ate some breakfast, then I wouldn't be hungry for lunch again. Grump! Then I was so full after lunch (not through over eating, just through noticing that I was completely physically satisfied, even though I had Mind Hunger) that I felt a little sad, realizing there would be no beef stew. Luckily, after the gym, I got hungry again, and since I was going to be staying up late for child-shuttling, I jumped on that hunger and had my beef stew!

    Still, I am coming to the slow and sad realization that True Hunger means Delayed Gratification. This is not one of my strong points. Guess I'll have to make it one. I did manage to restrain myself to 2 tablespoons of rice at my lunch. A victory. You may recall that I decided that either the rice or the creme brulee had to go. Half a cup down to two tablespoons is a step in the right direction. It meant only two pieces of a roll, which looked rather lonely on the plate.

    Today I will be planning my food for the weekend, with an eye to this new concept of eating when I have True Hunger. I will be out for three days at an anime convention with Middlest and four of her friends, chaperoning. This means a combination of hotel food and snacks for me to bring along. I don't want to bring too many, and have food that I can't eat because I am NOT HUNGRY (!) staring me in the face, but I don't want to eat a lot of expensive restaurant food, either. A tricky middle ground to tread.

    This was yesterday:

    Up at 6:15
    Vitamins

    12:00 2 plates of sashimi
    1 piece chicken teriyaki
    1/2C seaweed salad
    2T rice
    1/2C creme brulee

    8:30 1C canteloupe, blueberries, and honeydew
    2C beef stew with
    sweet potato, tomatoes, pearl onions, coconut oil
    2 squares dark chocolate (8gC)

    Water: 11 glasses
    Walking: 60"

    Bed at 10:00

    Tomorrow I weigh in and take my measurements. It will mark five months of being (mostly) primal. Yay!

    Hi Sabine! I finally got caught back up on your journal! What did you think of the Coconut Bliss? I love the stuff and can eat about half a pint in a sitting!

    As I was reading about what demuralist was saying about avoiding hunger back in the "dieting" eras of our life, I realized I didn't work to avoid true hunger, but rather the mind hunger - or the hypoglycemia, whichever came first.

    Mind hunger, interest hunger and others that are not "true hunger" cause me anxiety still. I'm inspired by reading your trials to eventually run a similar experiment of my own in the future (I have to kick the sugar addiction to the curb first, I think). My toughest obstacle will be remembering that nothing is so special that I can't have it again another time.

    Happy 5 months!!

    Ooh, Jenn, so true. "Nothing is so special that I can't have it another time." I have to remember that. It certainly helps that so much can be put into the freezer, too. I can have it...later!
    I thought the Coconut Bliss was okay. Tasty, but not amazing. I'm just as glad that there's not another thing I REALLY want to have. I had a taste, and my family is finishing it up.

    Weighing in, measuring up, and taking off!

    Thanks, Ecks. That's a perfect way of looking at it.

    Just a short post this morning, as I have a dozen things to do, getting ready for leaving today, at noon, PROMPTLY!

    Most exciting to me, I did my measurements. Here's the update from the beginning of the year:

    Date............Jan 23................Jun 1
    Weight.........211....................182.5
    Underarms.....39".....................38.5"
    Ribcage.........37.5"..................35.75
    Waist...........40.5"...................37"
    Hips.............44"......................42"
    Thighs l-r......25.5"-25.25".........24"-24.25"

    Down 28.5 pounds and many inches. I am pleased.

    Yesterday was primal but in a strange way. Lots of super-slow walking, working my way through the registration line with the girls. Long spaces of no eating, then little nibbles of nuts, because I was just TOO busy. Hunger when I couldn't eat, and no hunger when I could. Oh, well, just one of those days.

    See y'all on Monday!

    You are inspiring Sabine Love seeing your measurements and weight changes!! I think I will have to do that in a couple weeks when I reach my 4 month 'anniversary' of living primal. I am also trying to learn when I am truly hungry - and there are times that I slip into old habits but I feel SO good when I only eat when truly hungry!! Nothing like it!

    You really are doing super well! I'm impressed! You've got wonderful numbers and you've obviously made incredible progress in taming the hunger monster.

    Do you refrain from eating with your family when you're not hungry? When I'm all on my own, I will cheerfully hold out and eat at weird times, but if there are others around and it's meal time, I eat with them. Not too sure I'm willing to change that either, as long as it's not causing problems. What are your thoughts?

    I'm back.

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Back from my weekend of frivolity. There was primal eating and non-primal eating, walking every day, and lots of fun. But I'm ready to get back to normal life. SOOO nice to sleep in my own bed last night.

    Both my girls are off from school, now, so we'll be adjusting to a summer schedule. I anticipate that my sleep schedule will change, as they take advantage of doing things with friends in the evenings. And, I'll need to make sure I schedule my walking. So easy to let that slide when you have 'the whole day'.

    A nice surprise yesterday, when I slipped on my freshly washed stretch jeans. The legs are LOOSE! No stretching required.

    Okay, off to catch up on everyone's journals. This could take a while.
