    Pant size varies so widely from person to person. I am 5'10" and at 135 was in a 12. I may have worn a smaller size ONCE when I was 120. Don't worry about the size other people wear. Every body is different.

    I totally agree honeybuns. So, I guess my real goal is to just not shop in plus size stores anymore. Selection is so limited and everything fits like a burlap sack. I dont have the opportunity to wear "pretty clothes" a lot with my chosen path of life, but when the occasion arises, It would be nice to feel good about what I am wearning, ya know?

    Win for today- I stopped myself from hopping on the scale. Easiest way to do this for me is to immediately gulp a bunch of water. In my psyche this will completely throw off an accurate reading making it pointless to weigh It's the little things, ya'll

    Peace and love,

    I agree, I don't understand sizes these days. When I lost a bunch of weight, I dug some old clothes out of the closet and even though the new clothes I had bought were that size and fit me, the old clothes were at least a size smaller. Vanity sizing has really gotten out of control, Old Navy is the worst. On the up side, there are more regular sizes thanks to that--what used to be a 16W is now a regular women's 16 or 18.

    I just started reading your thread, I'd love to have a farm! Unfortunately even though we love the idea of a small homestead, we also like to travel, and live far from family. Can't just leave the critters, so that's out for us, at least for now.

    Meeshar,

    It is a sacrafic within the reward. Sometimes, well, a lot of times I miss out on activities and events because I cannot find a reliable caretaker for my animals. I am the only one here to do it and it is difficult for me to leave and trust someone to take care of everything with the same diligence that I would. I hope someday, I can begin making profits from this patch of land and be able to hire someone out to take care of things while I am gone on the rare occasion. But, that is many years away.

    Um, carnitas are in the oven again. Oh, yummy! I also tried to make the zucchini muffins in chocotaco's food porn thread. Um, either I didnt do it right or he has very different taste buds. Bleck. I am done trying to make primal treats. I have tried and failed on several attempts.

    Peace and love,

    H

    Yeah I don't bother with primal treats often, as I end up over eating them.
    Oooh I am so making those carnitas this week

    I kinda wish I had the issue of over eating the treats. All the ones I have made have been miserable.

    Oh they haven't always turned out right though LOL
    I have stuffed up plenty.
    I make things like date balls for my children, but they just don't have the same appeal as they used to so it doesn't worry me. It has been a while since I have made something I would enjoy, so I could probably manage these days.
    I am making this on friday for my husbands birthday, so will be interesting to see how that goes.

    Glad,
    There are tons great recipes on this site. Also the Primal Blueprint cookbooks have alot of great recipes. I have been cooking since I was 8 ...going on 42 years now. I love to cook and I am always up for a challenge. Switching up recipes and making them primal is a fun challenge. My youngest son's GF is primal too and loves sweet potato souffle'. I created one that is completely primal and no one knew the difference at Thanksgiving.
    You have a lot on your plate (pun intended) so don't be too hard on yourself. Check out the recipes here and don't hesitate to use those spices!

    Firemanswife,


    Cooking is my second love. Or maybe it's a hobby. Not sure how to qualify it. Anyway, I love cooking, especially a new dish. For whatever reason I just stopped really cooking like I used to when I turned primal. I need to order some cook books when I have some extra cash. I definitely have some recipes saved on my computer to try out.

    The carnitas I made were just as delicious tonight. If ya'll make em' make sure to run to broiler on the meat after you shred it up. The crispier the better, in my opinion. I ran the broiler about 20 minutes for 8 pounds of meat. I stirred it every 5-6 min to get more of it crisped up. Did I post the recipe? Can't remember.
