I have been going back and forth between deciding if I want to go primal, and have dabbled enough in the lifestyle to know that this isnt a fad for me, but will be a never ending lifestyle.
I have PCOS (they think) and do not menstrate (Sorry if thats TMI!) I also have psoriasis, and a candida over-growth. Anyway, this way of living has been recommended for me to clear all of the above problems as well as many others, so I am fully committing this time! I have the tendancy to go the all-or-nothing route, which I have changed since starting on this journey. Sometimes a potatoe or a piece of bread might fall on my plate, and that is ok! 80/20 rule, right?
I dont weight myself so I dont know where I am at right now, but it needs to go down. I used to be very overweight (5'5, around 215 lbs) and have kept most of it (lost 50lbs!) off for almost 4 years now. But I yo-yo between a size 6-12, and it needs to stay around a 2-4! My cycle usually is to do PB 100%, feel AWESOME, than have some bread or pasta, feel guilty, and than binge for a few weeks/months until I gain enough weight that none of my clothes fit and I get upset. Than I start the same cycle all over again! This cycle needs to end! I have done a lot of internal work as far as self exploration and also figured out where the binge disorder was coming from....anyway I am confident that that is all under control and am ready to live my life!
I am starting my "challenge" now but I have been mostly primal for some time now. But I havent been tracking it until now.
Still with me? lol I didnt mean for this to be a huge post but so be it!
