    • So my accomplishments today are actually losing 20 lbs. I started at 242.5 and hit 222.5 on my home scale today, which I know for a fact reads heavy. I also am feeling better from having carb flu yesterday. Cut out all the carbs today and will see how it goes over the next day or two. I am looking to get to 150 and from there will decide where I need to go. So glad I found this website!!!!

        • Went shopping with hubs today and decided to try on a pair of pants... didn't realize they were "skinny" cut until I started putting them on- and they looked GOOD on me!! I had to try a smaller size- a 7/8. I haven't fit in a size 8 since I was 16!!

            • Text sent from my daughter today:
              On that camera I found in your suitcase are pictures from 2008 during the snow storm and you look sooo different?

              My response: How?

              Her replies:
              You've lost a lot of weight.
              It's weird how you don't really realize till you see an old picture.

              • Three to report

                One week Primal - After months of toying with it (read lots of cheats).

                Read every post in this thread - Dubious Triumph but I'm claiming it.

                I weigh less than 200lbs this morning - First time in 15 years.

                Oh and first post on MDA!

                  • This might not make sense, but after finishing the Whole30, I wanted to see how I'd react if I went back to my SAD diet. I chose today to experiment. During my date with the BF, I made myself fall off the wagon: salmon and vegetable cooked in questionable oil, half a cup of rice, gelato, and caramel/cheese popcorn. I realized they no longer appeal to me and I find myself craving the food I prepared for myself during the Whole30. (The gelato was great, but I don't find it that different from a frozen banana mashed with cocoa.)

                    I didn't lose a lot of weight during the Whole30 (but I've lost inches!) and I'm honestly afraid this little 'falling off the wagon' experiment might have made me gain it all back (not that one night could make a failure out of all the effort put in), but I think more importantly--going strict Paleo conditioned me to want to consume only good food, good in every sense of the word, and this makes me happy. I'm so glad the SAD now has very little hold on me.

                        It makes perfect sense, and I know exactly what you mean. I was out running errands yesterday, didn't think to eat before I left, and had some cash in my pocket. Before it would have been the perfect excuse to have some junk food, I had plenty of opportunity, and I really would not have felt bad about it... but as I really considered what I actually wanted, I discovered that I really just didn't want the junk food. It wasn't a rational "I know I'll regret this later", or me making good nutritional choices, I just really wanted the elk steak and buttered broccoli waiting for me at home more than I wanted pizza or mozzarella sticks or something. Amazing, innit? ;0)

                        • Yesterday I went shopping for some new workish clothes. I normally work in a tshirt and jeans office but every once in awhile I need something nicer for meetings or conferences, and I found out that my old work pants were all either a little to big to way too big. I went to the place I have been getting workish clothes from my entire adult life--Express--and was shocked to find that I now wear a size SIX pants there. And even the six is a little loose. The last time I was skinny, I wore an 8 of theirs, and even that was a little tight in the crotch.

                          Yeah I know about vanity sizing and all, but I think the nicer stores are more true to size than cheaper stores, so this change is shockingly real.

                              It is a weird feeling. I went to see a mate this week, ended up getting a takeaway between us (I had a kebab - just got rid of the pitta bread, about as well as I could do for primal eating and hadn't eaten since lunchtime to was starving). He got a pizza, asked if I wanted to share it. Being starving still I figured why not. Had about two bites of a slice and decided I really didn't want it. Wasn't enjoying it at all.
