    Hi Metric,
    I found your thread while I was on the site trying to learn all I can so that I can do Primal right. I've been reading that sometimes women don't quite get the results they've been looking for, so I wanted to focus on a female who's actually losing wgt. and getting smaller. I love how you just dug in and didn't seem to look back! You're very inspirational! I have lots of wgt. to lose, but I feel so much better--more human--after only making 1 change. I ditched grains 2 days ago. For the first time in a long time, I feel in control of my appetite instead of it controlling me. I have energy for a change and feel like a nice person ;~).
    I want to thank you so much for posting your food in detail at the beginning. I know everyone is different, but it still helps. I have bought so many meal plans and nutrition books that I can't afford Mark's books just yet. I'm not going to let that stop me--I'm going to go with what I know from researching this site and go from there!
    I'm glad it's helping! If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Welcome to MDA!

              • 13 Aug 12, PB Day 104 - Back from my vacation

                So happy to be back home! I didn't stick to primal very well while I was away. I never realized how much my family followed CW and SAD's. I will be doing my weigh-in and measurements tomorrow and I know I gained a pound or two. Hopefully it'll come off quickly. I've been eating processed carbs and eating many times throughout the day. For the next few days, I'll be consuming lots of fat to get myself back into the groove of things. While at my parents place, I entertained my nephew and that was really my only source of exercise. Over the past weekend was the Noelville Family SoftBall Tournament weekend. My back muscles, abs, quads and upper arms are all sore from the workout. Feels good

                Exercise:
                0800 hrs: 1 hour walk with my dog (3.5km)

                Meal #1: 1030 hrs
                3 slices of pasture uncured bacon and a bulletproof coffee containing two cups of organic Dominican Rep coffee, 3 tbsp organic butter (from grass fed), 2 tbsp coconut oil. Didn't have any cream at home so figured I'd give it a shot. I actually didn't like it which was surprising. I only ended up drinking about half of it.

                Meal #2: 1530 hrs
                Deer sausage covered with my homemade Bolognese Sauce with organic cucumber from my grandfathers garden.



                Meal #3: 2000 hrs
                Deer sausage, sweet potato covered with my homemade Bolognese Sauce, served with organic cucumber from my grandfathers garden.

                    • I just wanted to say hi and congratulations on your amazing accomplishments. I am brand new to the forums - have been Primal for a little over a month. I had good losses the first month but now am starting to go in the other direction even though I feel like I've been sticking to Primal pretty well. I came over to the forums to try and find some inspiration, and found it in you! Congrats and keep up the good work. I can't wait to see how far you go!

                        Thank you very much! Welcome to MDA! Primal Living is meant to be stress free, so try not to stress out about it. Just keep eating primal and watch what you eat. Make yourself a food log so that you can go back to it afterwards if no progress occurs. I find it super helpful!!

                            • Ugh

                              I've been very bad this past weekend. Chips, excess wine, bread. I definitely feel it today. All bloated and sh*t. I deserve it!
