I just wanted to introduce myself I started the primal lifestyle Fathers day and did well for the first week and half then we had family outing where beer was involved and that leads to bad food choices but I am ready to get back on the horse. I also started crossfit which I love and do 3 days a week with my 20 year old son. I am starting out at 337 6'1" I would be thrilled to be 250 I wear 3x shirts and 44 waist havent shopped at normal stores for clothes in so long that is another goal just to go by clothes at any store I want. I have my own company and we do well I have control of all aspects of my life except my weight and after reading the primal blueprint I finally feel there is a way to take control. In just a few weeks of being 75% primal I didnt have any heartburn or stomach issues then I ate the old way for a couple of days and had horrible heartburn that just made me realize that primal is the way to go. I used to try and walk for exercise but after about 1/2 mile my shins would be in extreme pain after a week of primal I walked 1.5 miles with no shin pain another reason to live primal. I am so proud that I found this site and Mark's wisdom. I also have a 24 year old son that is living primal and never felt better so proud of both my kids for pushing me in the right direction. I also have a wonderful wife who loves me unconditionally and we have been married for 25 years she has weighed between 120 and 130 the whole time we have been married and has put up with me going from around 205 at our wedding to 337 which is unfair to her and myself because we have missed things due to me being uncomfortable in certain social situations. To help with the social situations i started zoloft several years ago and I am ready to get off of it and my blood pressure medicine because it definitely doesn't help with the weight issue. Wish me luck on my journey its a lifestyle not a diet! I will take any advice to help sustain the primal way of life.
