      • Fantastic results! Your arms are very sculpted and so are your calves. I had to look closely to realize you were wearing the same pair of shorts ---- the shorts in your 'after' pic look so different. Also, your pecs are more sculpted and make your neck look quite lean. Kudos to you. Sculpting your ideal body is very empowering! Congratulations!

              Nope, I just follow an eat when you're hungry protocol. I was hungry earlier in the day (late afternoon), but the damn pork belly took a few hours to make, so had to wait until it was ready. I have been meaning to look into Leangains though.

                  • 15 July 12, PB Day 75

                    Forgot to do my weigh in and measurements. Will do tomorrow morning when I get home from my overnight shift. One thing I have noticed is that I get hungrier earlier in the day if I have too many carbs (and not the good kind) the day before.... like last night.

                    Exercise:
                    Super sore in the arms and chest from the little bit of a workout that I did yesterday. May try to get out for some sprints at the gym on my break.... we shall see.
                    1745 hrs: 45 minute walk to work (in 39 degree humid heat... ugh, at least my office is super cold!)

                    Meal #1: 1300 hrs
                    Grilled chicken thigh (with skin), boiled beets with tomato meat sauce, grilled onions and organic sour cream on top. Served with water.

                    Meal #1.5: 1745 hrs
                    Iced Oahu coffee with 18% cream. Devoured during my walk.

                    Meal #2: 0030 hrs
                    BAS - Mixed greens, cucumber, raw onions, feta cheese, chicken breast in marinade, 4 olives. Served with water.

                    • Great photos Jennifer! Love reading your progress...

                      • I just read your journal while on an overnight shift. No access to food, your photos made me hungry. Did you ever post that pork belly recipe anywhere? I have a pastured pork belly in the freezer and would like to do something with it.

                        I was happy to see you have some body shots too. Will be checking back often to see the progress.

                          • Hi Jennifer! I just joined the forums (I've been primal for about 4 months now) and your journey is so inspiring! Keep it up and I look forward to following your progress. Grok on!

                            • 16 July 12, PB Day 76 (Measurements update)

                              Well, it's been 2.5 months. Start day was May 1st. So here's the update.

                              UPDATE for Weight and Measurements (16 July 12)
                              Weight: 184.4 lbs (-23.6 lbs, 0.61lb loss from last weigh in, 30 June 12)
                              Bust: 38.5 in (- 3.5 in, no difference since last measurements, 30 June 12)
                              Waist: 32.5 in (- 4 in, no difference since last measurements, 30 June 12)
                              Stomach (navel): 39.5 in (- 3.5 in, no difference from last measurements, 30 June 12)
                              Hips: 43.5 in (- 3.5 in, 0.5in change from last measurements, 30 June 12)
                              Thigh: 26.5 in (- 2.5 in, 0.5in change from last measurements, 30 June 12)

                              Total weight lost: 23.6 lbs (- 0.6 lb from last weight in, 30 June 12)
                              Total measurements reduced: 17 inches (- 1in difference since last measurements, 30 June 12)

                              Lost 1 inches in the past 15 days and dropped another 0.6 lb. This is great, especially considering all the indulging I did over the past couple weeks. Helping my sister move and eating at their SAD house for quite a few days, then mine and my sisters birthday celebrations (x3). I was actually happy that I hadn't gained. The next few weeks should be much better! I don't have anything planned. I'm aiming to make it out of the 180's for next weigh in. That means just over a 3 lb loss to get me past 180. It's a very optimistic goal, but I think by sticking with TPB and increase an in exercise may help. We shall see.... Only 15 days to go.

                                Welcome and thanks!! I've overindulged in non-primal foods for the past couple of weeks (reasons in above post), so very little progress. Hopefully there will be big changes at the end of July.
