          • I've lost 40 lbs in 4.5 months. People don't really notice it. They think I got my hair cut or something. But I can tell my body is changing. I think 40 lbs is a lot of weight and I'm very proud of it.
            Down almost 40 lbs. 70 to go.

            • I just came back from playing tennis with two of my kids and my husband. Haven't played tennis in 30 years! Had a ton of fun. Then, as we left the park, I got across the monkey bars on the first try (NEVER done that before!) and managed to do one head over heels over a bar.

              Fresh air, family, and a lot of PLAY. This is a triumph in my way of being. Why on earth did I ever let myself become a boring adult who never played?

              • Congrats Feanor, Dyktynna, and Liz!

                I started making primal changes on 9-7 (after labor day) and went officially primal on 9-22. In less than a month, I have dropped 10 pounds and 2 dress sizes. I have been stuck at 153 a week but have lost inches. Last time I was at 153, I was a size 12 but now I'm a size 10.

                Last night, as we were fixing our dinner plates, my son put his plastic plate on top of the hot stove and it melted. It stank and I knew from experience it was going to be a pain to clean up. Normally, I would have snapped but it didn't even phase me. I just said "Accidents happen. It's happened to me in the past. Now you know better." I am utterly amazed at how much food can affect mood.

                • Great work Griff! Thanks for starting this post.

                  I can see the crest of my ribs without sucking in my belly!

                  Went from size 12-14 to 10. Now size 10 is a bit too big.

                  I also managed to eat just ONE french fry the other day from my friend's plate. I was underwhelmed.

                  No more carb binges, no more hunger, no deprivation.

                  I said that I'd try the paleo thing for 30 days. Now I can't imagine eating any other way.

                  • This morning was the first cold snap of the year and holy sh*t! I don't have any winter clothes. Had to make a Wal-Mart run (I know, but I'm poor) to get some sweats and long sleeve t-shirts. Both were size XL instead of the 3XL I was wearing last winter. I put on one of the t-shirts and almost couldn't believe that was me wearing it.

                      Nice! It can be quite disorientating, can't it? I really need new jeans, so I go through the options in the shop, grab a few in my size, head to the changing rooms, and watch them fall straight off. Ah, yes. I'd rather forgotten that 'my size' isn't my size any more.

                      • Are you kidding? That's a lot of fat!

                        This right here is 5 pounds of fat!



                        Congrats!

                        • I have two...

                          No binges since I started two weeks ago. Pretty good for a 35 year carboholic.

                          and

                          I did sprints yesterday and I didn't die. The last time I did those 25 years ago my HS gym teacher (shudder) was running behind me.

                          • I am wearing my skinny jeans today.

                            You know. The ones that I couldn't button around my waist prior to June.
                            If I don't live my dream, who will?

                            • I took the tape measure to my waistline today and it said 28inches.... 6 or 7 mths ago it was 31/32, it seemed to hover around 29/30 for ages and then I just didnt bother measuring... yeah, feeling pretty darned stoked about the 28!

                              • I finally broke my crappy eating slide, and of course the feeling of constant fatigue and distant nausea is gone. Damn you cookies and pasta for luring me into a fat trap.
