New member checking in! I have been a long time reader of MDA and have read the Primal Blueprint, but need to get more serious. I have been fat pretty much my whole life since 2nd or 3rd grade and am ready to make a permanent change. Currently I am 23, 5' 10", 247 lbs as of this morning, would like to get down under 200 lbs is the goal for now. For the past year or so I have dabbled in going primal but have never fully embraced it. In high school I was tipping the scale near 300 lbs, I remember filling out the form for my graduation gown and putting down 275 lbs as my weight and hoping I could get down to that by the time my gown showed up. When I was 19 I started eating a lot less, I found if I drank coffee it would take my hunger away too. The lowest I got to doing that time was about 237 lbs and I felt great losing that 40 lbs or so. Unfortunately though I started working real early in the morning and going to school, I was getting about 4 hours of sleep a night, drinking lots of sugary caffeine drinks and eating fast food. I gained back everything that I had previously lost. That brings me to my current situation, at the end of December 2012 I weighed 273 lbs. In the last 8 months, I have been trying to eat primal but have not been real committed. I am down 26 lbs since December, but know that I can do better than that. Recently I have been eating better, jogging, doing push-ups, lifting weights and riding my bike. I think I am going to start a journal to help keep me accountable and be able to see my progress. Wish me luck, and encourage me!
