F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
I'm from Hampshire too, currently living in the Waterside area, right on the edge of the New Forest. it's a great place for all things primal. I too don't want to waste any more time behind a desk or being a slave to the machine. Welcome aboard!
Hello from neighbouring Surrey! Fantastic you managed to cut your office hours down - certainly made a difference to my health, happiness, and productivity being liberated from the office desk. What a fabulous bonus to head into the New Forest, too... heaven!
Went primal for the weight loss, stayed for the quality of life!
Hi, from another local person. I live in Guildford but work in Hampshire (Petersfield). Most of my exercise takes place in Stoke Park, Guildford, and I'm sure I've seen a couple of other paleo people about there. The lack of shoes and doing pull-ups on the outside gym rather give the game away.
'Lo everyone else! Chronyx! Addlestone! a coupla miles away! We lived in Hamm Court on the Thames in a lovely bungalow. We're kicking ourselves thinking how much that house is worth now!
I am only consoled knowing that marmite is in most stores here in Westchester. Not sure how to eat it now that I no longer eat bread!
I know the place! (Although isn't it the canal system rather than the Thames?)
Yup house prices here are insane, good if you got in at the right time, not so good for your self-employed 27 year old Primalists ...still as long as I have good food and a healthy body I can go without owning for now!
Hmmm, somehow I don't think it would work as well as hummus if you dipped carrot or celery in it! Bleurgh.
I'd much rather be outdoors in the British summer (rain?).
Just back from five days in the Peak District. I was assessing five teams doing their Duke of Edinburgh Award Gold expeditions. Appalling weather a lot of the time and I was really impressed with how all 23 of them coped.
While I was near the top of Rushup Edge on Monday waiting for the teams to come through, I saw a vision come out of the cloud. It was somebody running up the hill. When the apparition got closer I saw that it was a bloke in shorts and 'T' shirt. He was about 70 - 75 years old. Use it or lose it, and he was certainly using it. After about twenty minutes he came running back down again. Must have been one of them there fell runners.
I'm back up there again Friday next week assessing three teams doing their Silver expeditions. I certainly hope the weather is a bit better. Is the drought over yet?
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
