    I’ve been doing this for 3 weeks now. I weighed myself today. Same weight

    I know it’s crazy, but I feel a tiny bit thinner, a bit better about myself.
    Nothing I can see yet. Maybe I’ll measure myself tomorrow. I did take measurements in August.
    Maybe I’ll see something there…

    Two other things that I’ve noticed:
    Normally September is a horrible month for me. I live in South Western Ontario and I suffer from Hayfever. I’m usually a stuffed up, drugged up mess for the month. This year, I’ve taken Reactine once, when I’d been out all day. I've had some sneezing fits, I keep Kleenex with me, BUT I don’t have the itchy watery eyes, my throat and the inside of my mouth doesn’t itch.

    I wonder...

    The other thing I’ve noticed:
    My arms have always been covered in tiny pimples, a rash almost.
    Always.
    Its getting better. I noticed yesterday that my arms are almost smooth…

    I wonder...

      I'd agree that the disappearance of seasonal allergy symptoms is related to primal eating. I've had seasonal allergies, and have needed antihistamines every spring through frost since first moving to southern Ontario 8 years ago, and continued back on the prairies. Started primal in March, and this year, not one aerius needed. And people say this was a bad allergy year. A few days I've had some congestion and a few sneezes, but nothing worth taking meds for. First year in a long time without the itchy, watery eyes. Congrats on winning the battle over pollen!

        Hey there Wine&Candy!

        Don't stress about the scale.... measure yourself and you will see more immediate results there over time.... the scale will eventually catch up! LOL I had the same issue with my arms too and over 3-5 weeks it went away! You will find your skin will clear up and become more youthful and vibrant!

          I measured myself this morning.

          No, I'm not going to give actual measurements!

          BUT I lost 1/2" off my ribcage and 1/2" off my waist

          NOTHING off my stomach or my big ass

            Unfortunately there seems to be no logic to the PB and weightloss and measurements. I lost weight but had no change in measurements. But then all of a sudden my clothes were too big for me... I think I started to lose the weight in those places that dont actually get measured.

            Anyway congrats on those 1/2 inch losses. baby steps. You may have to make a call to give up either wine or candy. I certainly ditched the candy for the most part when I got started.

              Thanks.

              I believe the ribcage and hip measurements. The other two? Ha! They can change 5 times in one day

              I think the candy is going to be much easier. It's the chocolate and ice cream...

              And the wine...

                We were in the city at lunch today and my son wanted Tim Horton’s. I chose the chili instead of a sandwich!

                I also left the beach before it got dark.

                #10 Use Your Brain
                Meh. Lots of driving today.
                I had to take my son for his driver license test. He passed ☺

                      Ha! I didn't give up the wine , BUT I did cut it down...The candy is easier to give up than the wine...

                      I tend to "sneak" the candy, the wine is something I "share" with my dh...

                        I saw your babies too cute. Maybe post them in your journal, full size?

                        That is just Lily. She has one blue eye. I love it .
                        My other pap is just one year old. Josie doesn't have a full coat yet. She looks like a long haired Chihuahua

                        They don't like to "pose" together. I'll try to put up a couple pics of them.

                          I've had one glass of wine so far tonight.

                          I'm on my way to deliver a "beverage" to my farmer husband. He's combining the "evil" soybeans and he's thirsty (cough, cough)

                            Well that was a wasted trip.

                            By the time I drove to town to the liquor store, bought his rum, stopped at the variety store for his Pepsi, (nope, he's not primal - YET) drove back out and discovered which field he was in...he was done. So I brought his stuff back home.

                            Not a totally wasted trip. I bought a new bottle of wine to try...SeaGlass, a Savignon Blanc from Santa Barbara, California.

                            I'm gonna try some now...

                              Today was the 1st day I’ve worked since June. I’m a supply teacher this year. I don’t have a class of my own. I was REALLY down about this at the beginning of the month. On the positive side – this gives me more time to devote to the primal challenge, and some other personal growth areas...

                              #1 Food
                              B – IF
                              L – IF – because I wasn’t hungry
                              S – 100g package of sliced Havarti Cheese, a $tarbucks Grande Tazi Chai Latte – 'cause I was really hungry
                              D – 7 frozen "pre made" chicken wings, an avocado, a tomato
                              One glass of White Zinfandel
                              Later: 2 glasses of the Savignon Blanc.

                              #2 Avoid Poisons
                              I chose the "Best" options I could find for my snack, considering I was in the city.

                              #3 Move Slowly
                              Not really, unless you can count walking around a couple of classrooms...

                              #4 Lift Heavy
                              None

                              #5 Sprint
                              None

                              #6 Sleep
                              Bed at 11, awake at 7, fell back asleep till 9 am. It’s a good thing my supply job today was only for the afternoon

                              Nope, but I took my Vit. D

                              #9 Avoid Stupid Mistakes
                              There were all kinds of bad choices I could have made at 3:30 when I was REALLY REALLY hungry. But I tried to be good.

                              1st day Supply teaching since June. Yeah, I used my brain
