But I think having the heavier body was good for my self esteem ultimately. I really worked on self acceptance over those months. Then suddenly, the weight started coming off. I lost 6 lbs in two weeks! Now I'm 132lbs, which is still 8lbs more than when I started Primal, but I honestly feel happy at this weight. I think I look fine.
Which is why I'm saying - I wonder how much of appreciation of self appearance just comes down to other stressors, like diet, sleep etc. Maybe cos I feel satiated and un-deprived of food, I feel more content with my body, because I'm not living in fear that the hunger monster will possess me and render me helpless to weight gain. I feel connected to my body, for the first time since I was a teenager.
And I think it's cos of eating Peat. But that's just me
