    I almost enjoy being sick after eating something that I should have. Makes you reflect on bad choices and gives you time with discomfort to really put perspective on weather it was worth it or not.

    I'm with you on the sickness thing. It's actually positive. Also I don't have to wonder, "Did that have gluten/sugar/rice in it?" Keeps me honest.

    Obviously I only know you from this forum, but it is hard to imagine that you were THAT big of an ass. And you apologized! Not too familiar with that sort of good behavior.

    I keep thinking about that mushroom pizza in the freezer, but I am afraid I would end up writhing too. Ditto for MIL's canneloni at festive occasions. I would, in theory, be willing to cheat for the once or twice yearly privilege of eating those things, but I'm so afraid it would knock me out of whatever good things are happening in the next few days that I haven't worked up my nerve to try.

    Candy, unfortunately, does not make me sick. I was very happy to have more kids than expected this year, so they cleared me out. Even if I bought chips as a lesser of evils.

    One of my biggest surprises is sugar - since I cut out the grains and almost all sugar, I feel really ill if I eat too much. BAD headache. Nausea. Small amounts, like in a bit of dark chocolate, are okay. I must get some massive insulin thing going on. I wonder if anyone else has this?

    It's been a crazy week. I spent the first half in Providence, RI at a trade show. Food was okay because generally at trade shows I don't eat breakfast or lunch and just eat dinner. Both nights there we went for seafood, which is pretty primal. Maybe not the beer so much, but I was well behaved.

    I'm home now and things are once again peaceful. My back and neck are both better (don't know what happened there except maybe the snow shoveling). So I'm being good and primal so that I don't gain any weight over the holiday weekend. I think that after Thanksgiving I'll make a concerted effort to drop some weight before Christmas. But I've been pretty successful at staying in the range of 236 - 240.

    Sounds like you're doing well. I find it's easier to get my resolve together again after a period of holding the line. And during major festivities, holding the line is a major victory.

    Yeah, it's been a couple of weeks of not so careful eating. I don't want to go into the holiday season that way. If I am focused on my diet I think it will be easier for me to avoid the mindless holiday eating that forces a desperate resolution on January 1.

    Some weeks ago I talked about making Pemmican. I just received my order from my meat supplier including round roasts for jerky and beef fat for rendering for making Pemmican. I asked for some marrow bones also and she sent along a nice bagful. So I am looking forward to making it!

    I am also looking forward to the weekend!

    We will need a report on that. I've never gotten that ambitious, maybe because I've practically never eaten jerky.

    Sounds like fun! What does SWMBO think of the jerky-making?

    Well, SWMBO cannot stand the sight or idea of raw meat. So I typically plan my jerky-ing for when she's not at home. In truth, she would be very happy being a vegetarian if left to her own preferences. But she will dutifully eat what I cook, because she doesn't cook at all.

    So she has very little interest in the Pemmican project.
