3: me, myself, and I. Along with all the great folks here on the boards.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

2.5: Me, My recently converted BF, and my soon-to-convert-but-wants-to sister : )
I absolutely cannot wait to find another primal/paleo friend that isn't doing it because of my influence and can be a part of my regular life.
If it weren't for the folks on the forum, I would probably have given up in frustration LONG before I saw any of the positive effects. I do feel like I "know" some people, but I think that's just online familiarity. I have a number of friends who I see maybe once a year but communicate with all the time on facebook. I also have a large number of primal folks on facebook, so it's almost like the same relationship but without the once a year in person.
I look forward to a gathering that's even kind of close to where I live lol
the only primal-ish people I know are some of my family members, who are converts but still cave into the bad stuff on a regular basis. It would be so great to be part of a Primal/Paleo social group. I wish I had worked more on that while I was in NYC. I am currently in Peru so you can imagine how much more harder it is to find like-minded people here

SerialSinner ~ my friend, Katie just came back from Peru. She weighs about the same, but with so much rice served that she's now all fluffy and her body composition changed. Surprisingly, she only had quinoa once the entire year. She's a 6' lanky girl, but came back with a fluffy bum and a pudgy gut (her terms).
I agree, it sucks that more people in real life aren't primal. But I just found a somewhat nearby crossfit gym and they have some paleo/primal articles on their website and they link to Kurt Harris' site, so I think I'll look into joining this summer.
No primals (and my nanny, a weightwatchers success story, thinks I'm an utter lunatic for eating all my egg yolks), but I'm working on converting my entire office and all my patients. I think I turn one or two a week...
My fiance fer sure. My best friend from college and his wife may be converting - well, she might be converting him. She bought herself a pair of VFFs the first time I went to visit them in mine. And when I invited them over for dinner (roast chicken, salad, and mashed cauliflower) she got real interested in the Primal diet. If she takes away his frosted flakes though he's gonna stop letting his wife and me hang out. XD
Since I started about a week and a half ago I have gotten 7-8 people I know to give it a try. I didn't actually try to get any of them to do it. They just saw how it was working for me and wanted to do it. It'll be interesting to see in a couple months how many are still doing it.
My husband is on board with me (for the most part), and my sister, while not exactly primal, certainly has inclinations in that direction. A friend at work who I've been considering as a possible convert showed up with the latest Dr. Eades book (the Middle-Aged Middle one), so I loaned her one of my copies of The Primal Blueprint. I now own two copies of PB, both loaned out, and have given three away as Christmas presents. I'm doing my best to convert people!
