      • So far I have lost 18 lbs in a week and a half, I know it's mostly water, but it's still nice to see on the scale.

            Congratulations! I am so close to saying hello to a new belt hole, myself... Such a great, feel-good indicator!

            • I'm claiming victory over a new belt hole, after flipping back and forth for a week or so.

              I'm also at about 90% of a chin up (forehead/eyes to bar).. very soon I will claim victory on that too.

              • I went from blood sugars of 300-350 to blood sugars 100-130. In a month. Thank you, PB.

                  • I went for a job interview in another city, so I stayed over at a friends house (7 hours on the train on both days). I'VE stayed primal! Even though unintentionally since I just couldn't make it on time to Starbucks to get my after interview treat: the Chocolate truffle cake.

                    But what is even better: I got the job. Wohoo!!!

                    • My first real pull up with chin over the bar from a dead hang came today after 7-10 days of working on it! Not too bad for a 260 pound man! Now to go over that bar more than once

                      • This is a pretty small triumph (I'm like four days into this), but I'm still counting it: I was busy at work today, and I eventually looked up to realize I had worked straight until 1:30 without feeling hungry. I usually start thinking about lunch at around 10 in the morning, or even earlier. When I finally did start to feel like I could eat something, it was a very different sensation of hunger than I'm used to--probably because it wasn't caused by a blood sugar crash. I ate a side order of straight-up guacamole from Chipotle and feel totally satiated!

                        • Just got back my cholesterol labs from the doctor.

                          In August 2009, when I started:

                          Total: 195
                          HDL: 37
                          LDL: 152
                          Trig: 133

                          Total/HDL: 5.3
                          Trig/HDL: 3.6
                          LDL/HDL: 4.1

                          Now:

                          Total: 192
                          HDL: 49
                          LDL: 131
                          Trig: 53

                          Total/HDL: 3.9
                          Trig/HDL: 1.1
                          LDL/HDL: 2.7

                          Booyah, baby.
                          Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.
