    Best: My 12 yo dd asking, "Can I fry an egg for my afternoon tea?" And then she does.

    Worst: Being confronted with a fully laden lunch table and finding virtually nothing primal to eat.

      I know what you mean with the fully laden table!

      For me it's when a family member comes home from food shopping, and I delve eagerly into the bags, only to find that there's barely anything I can eat!

          Best: Finally being able to control my hunger for 24 hours fast JUST for the hell of it.
          Best: First time in my life as a woman did I NOT gain weight the first day of my period. Break. Through.

          Worst: Having dad ask me "So what is this primal "diet." " Well, I don't eat any grains, sugars or beans.
          "Oh, I'm not giving up beans." .... then why did you ask? I'm sure everyone on this site can identify.
          The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

            Definitely. It seems that although everyone wants good health, they're not willing to give up anything or do anything extra for it!

              Best: leaving my girlfriend
              Worst: feeling like s**t sometimes
              I am not a bodybuilding/fat loss/strength training "guru" BUT I achieved a lean state with ease after learning the correct way to train and eat and I want to HELP YOU achieve the same.

              Getting fit is also about managing your mindset:

                My kids now fry themselves eggs for lunch. My 9yo helps my 3yo to cook his, as he proudly announces to the house "I'm cooking tumbled eggs!"

                Tis awesome.

                Worst moment: staying up too late.
                Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                  Little jealous right now, but congrats!!!!

                  Best: Feeling like I'm starting to "settle" into the Primal lifestyle after 8 weeks. I was close to 90% when I read the book. I realized for myself that counting macros is not Primal..........Grok~ette did not know what a calorie, carb or fat gram was...........I think I'm finally giving myself permission to be free from years of micro~managing the numbers. For myself as an individual this lifestyle is truly about simplicity and learning to hear what my body has to say.

                  Worst: Having to admit to myself that for the past 8 weeks I've also eaten like a Primal Pig~ette and totally abused the freedom that I have given myself. It felt good and almost rebellious to just gorge myself, but I am now paying the price with some very snug clothing. The scared part of me wants to revert to my old habits of micro management, but I know what I really need to do is stop ignoring my body. It tells me when it's had enough

                    Worst: last nights sleep. I'm having trouble sleeping, but I don't why. I go to bed at around 9:30 - 10:00, and I just lie there - wide awake - for the next hour or so before I finally fall asleep. I'm tired, but my mind is buzzing with all these thoughts.

                    Best: watching a family member prepare and eat a large meal of spaghetti and soy sauce topped with cheese - and not wanting to eat any of it!

                      BEST: Eating 2 x per day --- without any cravings --- only wanting veg and meat.

                      WORST: Having my fabulous husband take me out for dinner -- I order something that looks/seems paleo, but after eating it, I realize there was hidden vegetable oils or other substance that upsets my tummy :-( I hate trickery with my food!

                      Goal Reached: 30-09-12 @ 143lb. Now bouncing between 145lb - 149lb. I'd like less bounce and more consistency :-)

                        Best: Feeling ok about just eating a steak for lunch.

                        Worst: Being out of steak.

                          Best: breaking my fast with cold boiled potatoes and being satisfied until dinner for a change.
                          Worst: watching the snow fall and being stuck at home.

                            Best: measuring myself and seeing that I've lost 1 inch from the waist and half that from the hips!! In three days!

                            Worst: A family member calling me a fat bum.
                            I guess the weight loss isn't that noticeable, yet.

                              Traveller,

                              I apologize if I am being rude, or crossing a line, but you family sound like a bunch of JERKS.

                                Thank you for bluntness, Gladmorning!

                                Hmm. But I don't really know how to respond to that!
                                The family member in question is my sister. She's tall and really skinny, so she has no idea what it's like being self-conscious about your body. We're also complete opposites in personality, so we fight a lot, which is usually when she says these things.
                                The rest of them...well, none of them are overweight, or even close to it so they have no idea, either. My parents are reasonably supportive though, even though they don't really agree with what I'm doing.
