  • Fit in that dress by 1/10/11 - Betties Journal

    So here iam, starting my own little challenge, 7 weeks of strict primal:

    - no grains
    - no diary (except full fat cream in my tea and butter, lots of butter!)
    - no sugar (the devil!)

    and step by step to a primal lifestyle. regular sleep and rest, hard but short strength training, lots of low intensity dialy activities...

    my diet is already pretty much high fat / wholefoods, but there is always the little snack there or the diner out here where i cheat. and there is chocolate... lots of chocolate... this all has to stop! i also need to eat more protein i think.

    i have a lots of health issues (always tired, bloated, muscle pains....), but no doctor seem to find out the problem. so i will look into chines medicine and take my supplements on a regular basis. i should also look into leptin, maybe thats my problem?

          Best of luck. I wish Americans wrote dates like the rest of the world, for a second I thought you wanted to fit into a dress six months ago... (January 2011) haha.
          I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

              Cute! I have a skirt and sweater hanging on my bedroom door that I hope to fit into this fall. Superficial, maybe, but it definitely helps my motivation

                  Love the dress! Do it!

                  I am using clothing as a motivator to face fears (CrossFit) and not quit. No more Plus size clothing, it's discouraging and not suited to my tastes! I may have to buy one more fancy dress in October, but it WILL be my last!

                    iam back from my holiday, 3 days at a theme park with all the crappy food and drinks... i feel fat and its really time to start getting healthly again. tomorrow. really looking forward!

                    and the good news, got my new job and start in a couple of weeks. no more of the boring 3h trainjourney 5 times a week, but 2x30 min. walk a day! and a lots of more time for working out, eat good and having fun!

                    a few words about me:

                    Your location: switzerland
                    Age (If you want): nearly 32
                    How Primal are you: I was 80% but slipped too many times so it has to be 100% for many weeks to get back on track, i guess
                    Do you consume dairy: heavy cream and butter only
                    Do you drink coffee or tea: 1 tea a day, will try decaf
                    Motivator for switching to Primal: the only way to stay healthly & slim
                    Favorite exercise: all whats heavy
                    Favorite Primal food: dead animals ;-)
                    Best part about being Primal: feeling great and you can eat fat!
                    Worst part about being Primal: its not always easy in a "carb-world" we live...

                      Love the dress! I have a vacation (or holiday, as you say!) in December to Tulum that I'm using as my goal. I want to wear a bikini, kayak, snorkle and be strong enough to hike to the top of some Mayan ruins! But I think the biggest motivator is that I want to like how i look in my vacation pictures!

                      Bettie, what's really helping me get back on track and stay strong is i'm doing a Whole 30. 30 days of no sugar, no grains, no dairy. not even a bite of something. I now put coconut milk in my coffee instead of whole cream. I am not craving any sweets or chocolate or any of the usual things. I can barely even eat fruit now, its too sweet! When the 30 days is up, i may go back to butter, but we'll see. I may just do another Whole 30!

                      Oh, and congrats on the new job!

                        Calibunny, thanks!

                        no grain and no sugar is probably not a problem but the cream and butter i will keep up. if i see that i still need some adjustments i maybe think about it. i love coconutoil but i tryed it in my tea and i don't like the taste, so i would probably switch to roiboosh tea or fruit tea in the morning. and the main reason why i eat butter is cause i can't stomach too much coconut oil. i tryed my way up with it many times, but i got really bad stomach issues.

                        in england it was easy to find goose fat, lard... but here i just can't find it. maybe i have to look around in austria or germany.
