  • Halfway home! THANKS!

    I'm really excited, and I don't want to be puffed up or proud in "real life" (I just posted in another thread that I want primal's impact on me to speak for itself instead of me preaching)... but I've crossed the halfway point of the weight I want to lose! So for this one thread, I'm going to be puffed up and proud on this forum.

    This "diet" has been simple and fulfilling -- two words nobody would normally associate with the word diet. I'm very grateful to the people of this forum for being open and honest, and providing a virtual support system for us fat people. It's made a big difference.

    I know the second half of the weight will be the hard half. I'm ready. I know it might take me a year or more. I'm ready.

    Thanks!!

            Weight loss is not linear. Enjoy your food. Don't get discouraged if the scale doesn't move for a few days. You are benefiting yourself more than just losing weight.

                  Great progress, keep it up!
                  Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
                  -Paul the Apostle, 1 Cor 6:19-20

                    I mentioned other benefits: 1. Completely off of Nexium (heartburn med) and have zero symptoms. This happened mostly before the weight came off, due to the change to a more neutral alkaline/acidic diet. 2. Food is still something I enjoy, but I don't live my life waiting for the next meal. This is mostly due to the fact that what I eat actually makes me feel full for more than 30 minutes.

                    If you're new, keep at it!

                      Congratulations. You have helped alot of those struggling with your post. Absolutely true on all accounts. Weight loss is a journey, not a sprint. The unrealistic expectations of quick weight losss do not guarantee lasting improved health. Take a look at the Biggest Loser show. almost all of them are at least half way back to their former fat selves because they didn't learn a damn thing about the process. I wish you happiness and continued success in the 2nd half of your Trek. Well done.
