Arlington Tx Here. Just finished my first week of going primal. I haven't missed grains at all. Good results so far too, plus it helps my food pyramid is meat based. As I always say, I'll eat anything that had a face. Or try it at least ... I cant wait to see the results in a month and in the future after that..
Greenville area here Been primal since March 20th... lost 9 pounds so far and not but 2-3 to go till I am where I want to be! there are alot of grassfed sources near me, I just have to save for a half or quarter..... not likely to happen soon LOL

I'm afraid I've horribly backslid this month due to the insane stress of being a teacher who is preparing 5th graders for their science TAKS. After this Thursday, I'll be back on track and would love to visit with the rest of you North Texas Primals. It would be such a relief to talk face-to-face with other folks who get it!
OMG celtia, I teach 5th grade bilingual, ELAR/SS in a low income area of Dallas ISD - we just got our results for who failed the first reading so now I have to plan on how to reteach those who failed... I hear you on the stress! Our science teacher is just about out of her mind right now, lol, but at least it's over soon for her. Mine is just about to restart!
I'd like to meet up with everyone too - how far is Greenville from Dallas?

Too funny! I taught for DISD from 03-09 in the Grove near Bruton and Masters, close to the Mesquite/Balch Springs line. Just couldn't take another year of it after the RIF. I now teach in Greenville (no more commuting!). It's only a 45 minute drive, so I'm game for a meet-up after closing out this year. Good luck with your re-takers, and I hope you're dealing with the stress much more primally than I am!!
South East Arlington, South of 20 near the Municipal airport, work in DT Ft Worth. Question, anyone have problems with Weekend Backsliding, I haven't yet but I am just now starting my second week, so I am sure it will happen. If you have had it happen, have you noticed it had any impact or is it negligible.
I think local online groups are good, not to isolate from the rest of the board, but if you find good sources of food or trails in you area for primal hikes or anything like that, this could be a valuable resource. On a completely different note, I found that lamb was approved on the PB and was thrilled since I tend to have it once every week or two. Thankfully here in TX we have many sources of free range meats that are more than likely grass fed and healthy.
Oh my! I almost did let this thread die! I grew up in S Arlington, Matlock and S Green Oaks! Where were you guys from?
As far as the BBQ-- How about the 10th or 11th of June? Should we do a campout or just a day BBQ? I propose Lake Ray Roberts. I'm unavaliable, like I said, Sat and Sun, but a Thursday BBQ with optional campout overnight sounds great! I'm about to set-up a primal Texas facebook page. You guys all have facebook?
I will check out the Facebook page for sure. I grew up in North Dallas (Carrollton) and currently live by the Municipal Airport in South Arlington just south of I 20. Don't know if I would be able to make the BBQ, but I am glad to at least have the online group for support \ info. Good luck with your exams ikaika!
