    Sounds like you're off to a great start with a great attitude! Imagine how good you will feel in about 3-6 months! It doesn't usually take that long to feel better, but still.

    I can't wait for the day that I would be comfortable wearing a bikini again, so I hear ya about the loin cloth!

      Holy crap, amazing results in such a short time! Fantastic about the blood sugar numbers too.

      Keep it up, and make sure you plan to post a loincloth photo by this time next year!

                      So, one of my close friends named Mikey contacted me when I made my Countdown to Loin Cloth....... he gave me a lot of crap about it.... all in jest though. But here is the funny thing. he just resigned up for Weight Watchers....... he did well his first round with them but the weight started to come back. I told him about Primal Blueprint but he did the whole humbug thing. However, he said he will also take the countdown challenge and said in 1 year he will join me wearing a loin cloth LOLOL Wanna wager who will look more like Tarzan? Hahahaha! We got our wives to agree that when we do the loin cloth pics that we will do so at Mikey's place which sites at a rivor with some great rocks for us to pose on! hahaha OMG, this is going to be friggin epic and funny as all can be! What in the hell did I get myself in to and now Mikey! LOL

                        I have no doubt! Although chances are strong he sees your results and switches to your plan halfway through - PB is a much more guy-like plan, anyway!

                          WTG on the BG!

                          Congrats on having it to put up the pics. That is nerve-wracking. Awesome progress so far!

                          Good luck to you and your friend. I do hope that he finds PB is better for him. Then you can both Grok the loin cloth pics. Thanks for that, btw. Hubby and I had a lot of fun w/ that and the kilt discussions. <eg>

                            Yeah, I can see my friend switching over to PB when I drop about 50+ lbs and keep it off. Right now he is really skeptical but what is cool, this is a side by side comparison now between PB and WW. I used to be part of WW and I know how long it took to get results, how limiting and honestly some of their stuff (respectfully) are just really way off base.

                            Now as far as loin cloths..... I found an old (1940's) dear skin chamois that my dad used to clean his airplane. I t is fairly large, not being used.... he has passed a way and it is calling to me..... "wwwweeeaaarrrr mmeeeee...... wwwweeeeaaarrrrr meeeee" So, I think I will do what it says..... THAT will be my loin cloth! Hey, why settle for the fake stuff when I can wear the real! hahahaha

                            Kilts are definitely more manly and I love them..... but I think I will go for the chamois for this challenge and make Tarzan proud! Oh yeah Justin Timberlake.... I WILL bring the sexy back! hahahahahaha

                              I've done WW, too - and gained weight doing it. Momma lurvs her some PB.
                              ZOMG. If my husband got Primal enough to sport a loincoth!? That might be better since it's his thighs I'm really excited by. Well, mostly.
