        Hello gdimmick2000,

        I am a women slighly over 50. Been Primal for 5 weeks now and lost 8 lbs (weighing myself once a month so could be more). No problems on the eating side - never hungry. I need to do more exercise though, which is my goal this month. Glad you are here.

            I'm over 50 too!

            It's good to see women over 50 doing this. I am 58 and my husband, also 58 and I have been eating this way for just over 4 weeks. It started out south beach diet, but once I saw some of the recipes I knew it would not work for us. So I modified the south beach and we turned down the Primal Path--it has been a great experience actually. My husband really needed to loose the fat around the middle and the weight has been coming off slowly but very steadily. He looks to be in fighting shape. I feel great too and the dress I bought for my daughter's August wedding fits like a dream now. I hope it isn't too big for me come August-- I am appreciative of the timing of this --we are moving cross country and are having to do most of the packing ourselves, we are definitely lifting heavy things. I have had some days where the anxiety of the move has set the snack monster loose, but even with that (had some ice cream today) I don't feel bad about it. In fact, I rather enjoyed it. So if you ever "slip up" don't fret. Mark's site and the forum is a real help.

                Hi all-
                I just turned 50 and have been primal for last 6 weeks. I have lost 15 pounds. I am exercising alot because I am going on a hunting trip in South Dakota with my brothers, nephews, son-in-law and oldest grandson. I don't want to be the old woman in the croud saying "hey guys...wait up" LOL!

                I think I am allergic to wheat because I feel great with no upset stomachs or anything.

                Good luck to all of us!!

                  Hi from me, too. I'm 54 and have been primal for a couple of months. I'm losing about a pound a week with moderate exercise and being very strict about what I eat. I'm loving this lifestyle...I can manage to eat less without my blood sugar level crashing, and I haven't had any cravings at all. I hope it is as easy for you as it has been for me so far.

                      Hi~ Just turned 62 And I've had it~ done messing around! Ever since age 40, I've been trying one thing and another to control the middle age spread~ all I accomplished is a bigger spread! So, it's back to basics~ the way I used to eat when I was young and slim~ the way every expert told me was wrong~ I think my body is smarter than the 'experts'~

                      So, I'm here too~ over 50 and fighting back!
