  • Primal Journey (mparker79)

    Good Morning!

    Tody is day 1. I am making the commitment to go 100% primal for 30 days in an effort to improve my health and change the apperace of my body.

    A little bit about my journey to get here....

    I have been overweight most of my life. Begining in Novemeber 2012, I decided to take my like back. I was drinking heavily and paying no attention to my health. I was the heaviest I have ever been (188 lbs @ 5'4"). To begin loosing the weight, I went with one of the main stream, low carb, fad diets. By 3/1/13, I was down to 139 lbs. My weight is up a bit since this initial low and as of this am, I am at 149 lbs.

    The weight loss was great, but my body hadn't changed at all. I did weighed less, but my body composition is still the same. During this weight loss time, I hadn't excersized at all and gained zero muscle, so now I find my self "skinny fat".

    Through out my weight loss, I felt horrible. As I have learned from Mark's books, my body was just not getting what it needed. However, I stuck with the diet to get the weight off, but am very excited to now get healthy and change my body.

    Breakfast for today:
    (4) eggs with cinnamon and vanilla (I call this french toast eggs, one of my fav's) and some black berries.

    I will check back in the morning.

    Thank you Mark for the knowledge to take control of my self and heal my body.
