    Weight isn't doing anything.. but measurements.. are 45 37 45, thighs 28.. calves 16.. arms 13 1/2.. I have lost about three inches off my butt, ab area and one off my waist.. haven't really been doing alot of physical activity.. I think that needs to change now!

      8 and a half hours outside doing farm work today.. walking, moving, sawing, hammering, lifting, dancing, riding, and walking, walking, walking... I haven't had that kind of energy (and it wasn't wall bouncing, just steady) and want or will, to do something like that in a very long time.. it felt fantastic to be in the sun, to feel myself sweat, to see the accomplishment.. I'm whooped, but in the best kind of way! I had breakfast, an iced tea for lunch and nothing yet for dinner, yet I am not hungry.. no blood sugar drops, no dizziness, no weakness or nausea or nothin... wooooo fuckin hooooo!!!

        Two miles on the bike today.. and 12 standing push ups.. my heartrate didn't recover as quick as I would like so there is work to be done.. but I am doing it little by little.. egg crepe wrapped around salmon, onion and asparagus for breakfast this morning and some dark chocolate for snack.. not really hungry for lunch so I think I will go melt some coconut oil as I haven't had any in quite some time..

          Haven't journaled in quite awhile.. but I am still here and doing well.. I had pizza for the first time last night.. three pieces from a sheet pizza.. there is definitely something there in relation to eating the dough and wanting more.. I will have to watch that for some time I think, as its like the one potato chip scenario, never just one!
          I have added walking daily as of yesterday.. I lunge and squat randomly but not every day, also leg lifts side and back.
          I feel wonderful still.. stopped weighing and measuring myself, although yesterday I did determine that my frame size (bone) is large so that makes me feel better in relation to my goal weight and how people my height can go down to 130 or better.. I will never be there cause my frame is large, I would look shitty shitty.. I also have decent muscle mass but will see if that gets leaner and meaner as I go!
          Won't weigh or measure till april 15.. that will be a month and a half primal.. looking forward to the results!
          Keep on keepin on!

            April 15 weigh in!!!

            199.4 !! a total loss of almost 9 pounds since starting.. march 1
            lost 3 inches on my waist..
            lost 2 inches on my hips..
            lost one inch on my thighs..
            gained an inch on my chest..
            everything else the same..
            this is with very little "exercise".. the occassional squats, leg lifts, lunges while on the phone or cooking in the kitchen..
            no sprinting as of yet or any of that..
            time to add it in and see what happens maybe?
            I feel amazing still!!! enough energy to get through my day.. no blood sugar drops.. easy to fast if I wanna.. stable moods.. and the occassional celebratory "treat" if I am inclined with no guilt and no binging, craving stuff..
            Well.. thats my update.. gonna stay off the scale for another month so see ya'all on May 15!!!!

                I will not take pills..
                and I am sure many others...
                None of them... NONE OF THEM!!!!!
                had or have brought me to the level of WELL BEING that I feel inside my mind and body... pay attention.... WELL BEING!!!
                I am losing weight at a very slow and steady pace.. very slow.. and weight loss is why I am here.. but its goin..
                the "side effect" if you will has been WELL BEING....
                a strong balanced mood (wasn't expecting that)
                a level, balanced energy that carries me throughout the day (wasn't expecting that)
                free moving joints and lack of joint pain (wasn't expecting that)
                no more headaches (wasn't expecting that)
                no more sugar/carb cravings or binge eating even at that time of the month (wasn't expecting that)
                no more night sweats (wasn't expecting that)
                an optimistic outlook and anticipation of the day and what is to come (wasn't expecting that)
                no more hypoglycemic episodes, I can go 24 hours or better effortlessly and naturally, not planned, without eating and not even care (definitely wasn't expecting that)!!!
                NO GUILT.. NO SHAME.. NO BLAME..
                I can go anywhere, any restaurant and find SOMETHING as close to primal as possible and eat it and not feel denied..
                I feel completely comfortable and EMPOWERED by my choices now.. I feel STRONG.. mentally, emotionally..
                I think you get where I am going with this...
                I am not on any major supplements.. I don't do any major exercising (would like to start sprints today though!)
                I eat bananas , I had a small hot fudge sunday (no nuts) the other day to celebrate the opening of our local ice cream shoppe with my children!
                I have kept dairy in my life, occassionally.. I like my meat!!! I like my veggies.. fruit, seeds, nuts.. YUM!!
                I miss the ease of bread products but oh well!
                This is right for me..

                  OK.. so yesterday I had a spring soup at a local restaurant.. tasted amazing and I made some concessions to the ingredients cause it was only a cup of soup before my sausage, peppers and onions.. and man did I hit an energy slump yesterday afternoon that I have not had since going primal!!!
                  There was corn and beans in the soup besides carrots, spinach, peas.. I'm thinkin it was a reaction to the corn. I just wanted to close my eyes and go to sleep NOW... huge drop in energy and very quickly.. and I was driving. Not a great combination. So I drank some water, rolled down the window and cranked the music till I got where I was going and walked.
                  Then last night I had some meatlovers pizza, first time since starting, and my sleep was definitely off last night with alot of stomach bloat.. poopin first thing this morning which is not like me.. and I had some sugar cravings this morning..
                  I think I'm gonna fast today (just liquids) and see where that gets me..
                  well now I know.. don't I..

                      I am off track... each day has had something non primal.. not happy about that at all.. feels like I am slipping and I think its because I am so busy I am not making the time to set myself up for success and taking the easy way.. gotta stop that shit!! Gonna zumba today... yesterday broke out in spontaneous jumping jacks.. heavy lifted the day before.. so its in my thoughts.. just the food actions are lagging..

                          I think that I am an awesome person.. so why do I feel sooooo bad when people compare my daughter to me, and I think "oh no.. she is BEAUTIFUL.." don't compare her to me.. she is soooo much more and better..
