  • Because I can Baby !!!

    Hey you....lookin' pretty perky today momma. Feeling good on this primal path, admit it.

    I am actually. How odd it is that this has so clicked for me? I have read every book and the whole avoid carbs and sugar song and dance has always sent me running. (yeah, like I run. ha ha) But this book, this amazing, life guide just called to me and delivered me to a wonderful place of inner knowledge. This is who I am and this is how I will live. Primally.

    And honestly the sexy pics of Mark helped too !!!!! Helllllooo Daddy Would it be creepy to admit that I made him my screen saver on my phone?? probably.

    Starting my second week strong. Down 4lbs my first week. Excuse me while I gyrate all my womanly curves in extreme rapture. 4 pounds lost for this sugar/wheat whore is immense. So immense, I try not to dwell on it because it makes me sad to think of the years I have wasted being fat, in pain and broken and chasing the carb high. So many experiences avoided, so many dreams abandoned.

    STOP! Stop. Stop. Stop. STOP! Breathe and Shake it off.

    I will not waste a moment of today on yesterday's regrets. I am not that person.

    I am the person who is excited about what tomorrow holds for me. What can I learn? Who can I help? What is next on this sexy crazy adventure?

    I will fully embrace all the potential and wonders of tomorrow. PRIMALLY.


    I commit to study more of my PB guide daily and to seek support from the crew at MDA. They are awesome.
    Try new recipes, esp ready to go snacks. Make a heavy bag to toss with the kids, or at the kids. Stinkers.

    Starting Weight: 227 lbs at 5'5"

    Down: 4 lbs.

    Current: 223

    Nice work on dropping weight in the first week! That's an awesome start! Welcome to the MDA community.
    Went Primal on 1st April 2012

    Since beginning Primal:
    - The stomach cramps I'd been having have vanished.
    - People comment that my skin is glowing.
    - I enjoy getting out of bed (most of the time)
    - I'm so excited by food.

        Welcome! I hear you on finally finding the key! I am a mom of 2 and still above my initial prepreggo weight. I wish you luck on this journey, it has been amazing 3 months for me since giving up wheat and an awesome month since finding PB.

          Great job, keep it up!
          If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

            Big Challenge coming up this weekend and all the planning that goes along with a celebration. My son is turning 13 this Sunday! Trying to assemble a mental plan on staying as Primal as possible but not wanting the family to feel I am not celebrating too. Guilt is a bitch and so is my Mom who can in one breathe ask me why I'm so fat, then spin her head around in a Medusa 360 and tell me she made me brownies because she felt like baking. Asian mothers are the root of great evil and mental distress.

            IF I choose to indulge ---- it will be one meal only. NOT the entire day or ugggh the ENTIRE WEEKEND! That was the old Non Primal me. This new Primal Mommy is not food obsessed and that is a wonderful, freeing experience and somewhat scary.

            I have a huge buttload of mental free time now that I am not counting calories or counting "Points". I must pursue something fun and new to occupy that now empty mental wheel.

            Yesterday's Primal Success - First day without Dark Chocolate, it just wasn't whispering sexy things in my ear and I was able to handle my day without a fix. WHOA ! Big Big accomplishment for me. I cannot recall the last time I went a day without chocolate. Possibly while giving birth, but even that might not be true.

            Yesterday's Primal Slump - Not enough moving, less than 1000 steps. Lazy day mentally and physically. Spent 4 hours driving the kids around. Plan ahead and work those steps in ! Fitbit everyday, no fail.

            Homework - Need to get my Cook On! Pack the freezer with ready to go meals and pack the frig with quick n ready Primal go to foods. Look into making Jerky at home.

              I made grain free chocolate cupcakes for DD's 4th birthday party. Low sugar and everyone LOVED them. Let me know if you'd like the recipe or google "grain free wife" as that's where I got the recipe from. I used a mix of sugar and honey. Then you can have a cupcake without getting too far off track. And I bet no one will know unless you tell them!

                      Doin' the happy dance!!! With less to wiggle and less to jiggle Down another 4 lbs of toxic Mommy fat.
                      Makes a total of 8 lbs in 2 weeks. That's right honey, I said "Eight" pounds. Which included a kick ass weekend of Birthday celebrations for my son.

                      But I tackled that hurdle with my mind in gear. That this was just one weekend out of the year and no matter what I ate, it would not set me off my chosen path of living Primally. BAM. That freakin' easy. Dropped the guilt of straying and dealt with it.
                      Also dealt well with the she-devil that spawned me - told her I was down 8 lbs and her reply was "Really ???? hmpf. When youre done, you grow out your hair so you don't look lesbian and no more tattoos too" Asian Moms, pure sunshine and rainbows of pure love and support. %&^^##*&) !!!!

                      No lie, I am feeling kind of sick and yucky from all the SAD food today and did actually vomit a little while burping but I just take that as a sign that eating Primally is working for me. ( Since my body was trying to kick back all those carbs and crap) That seems like a scientific conclussion to me.

                      I did have a few days this week of feeling overwhelmed about following all 10 laws of PB, so I am trying to just really focus on a few of them hardcore each week and get them ingrained as a habit before trying to live it all at once. The rule of 80/20 is a good point of focus, to avoid being too hard on myself and setting off a round of "I suck - I can't do this" shitty pity party.

                      This past week was about exploring primal foods and recipes and it went well. That went a long way in knowing I can live this way.

                      This week my focus is going to be the PB fitness aspects. A little more preplanning to get my flab fanny up and moving with intention and find something "HEAVY" to lift and throw around. Luckily the 8 pounds I have dropped have seemed to help with the knee and joint pain and that freakin' rocks. Push pass the pain my unfit, obese PBers, your'e gonna hurt whether you are sitting on the couch being a fat lump or out moving your jello ass and stretch marked covered gut. So atleast make the right choice and move towards better health. Every right choice you make for your health is an investment in a better, fitter, happier life.

                      There is room for everyone of us on the Success Ladder, even us bigger girls. Watch out below...................

                          HA! just checked that site out, too damn funny. Love knowing that others are in the same "boat".

                          I'm embarrassed to say that at the age of 39, I still do things intentionally to piss off my mom and her other 32 pyscho personalities.

                          But it's only payback for not letting me ever cut my hair, shave my legs, wear jeans or wax my furry Filipino girl 'stache in high school! Yeah, I was the weirdo in P.E. class who had to run laps in dresses, white sandals and hairy legs with hair down to her butt. Kids would ask me if I was Jehovah's Witness and I would reply "No - I wish, but I'm just Filipino"
