  • I'm only at day three but so far:

    Spent all Sunday afternoon dicing veggies, processing cauliflower for rice, and made a version of the MDA breaky casserole for the week. It felt SO good to get organized

    PPB I HATED all things coconut- the smell, texture, taste. Well here it is day three and I've gone through 4 cans of coconut milk lol, love it in smoothies!

    I've been able to upgrade any chocolate I eat to bittersweet (kind of a cheat but I just have a few mini dark chipits with some cashews when I'm snacky)

    So far so good!!

    I forgot to add the best one. I woke up this morning NOT hungry!! I'm having an Avacado/berry/coconut milk smoothie at 2:30 (first thing all day) and I feel fine! I used to get light headed and grumpy from hunger. Yay!

      Excellent! I do so much better when I take that time to prep and plan! Makes the whole week easier....now why don't I ALWAYS do it? LOL!

      • I just tried on a pair of size 4 gap jeans and they ZIPPED ALL THE WAY. Way too tight, but in another week they'll be mine! I've basically been wearing only A-line skirts for the past year because I hated the way I look in pants...not anymore!!
        Everyone, I absolutely love reading this thread, there is so much joy here congrats to ALL

        • Heh, I have to see if I'm as diligent again this Sunday, but it was actually a relaxing/calming process, also I know that if I haven't done the prep I'll get lazy and resort to carbs and I really don't want to do that

            OMG, I have been doing the EXACT SAME THING FOR TWO YEARS NOW.

            Congratulations!!!

            Can't wait to graduate to pants again, I'm so sick of the wind.

            • I've been trying to manage my blood pressure without medications (my doc is awesome about not prescribing meds if it can be controlled by diet!), a few months ago it was 143/95 and then I cut out processed foods and was able to bring it down to 120/80ish, then after being primal for a few weeks I checked it this morning and it was 92/64! The lowest I've ever seen it!

              • I'm at my goal weight. (for whatever that's worth.)

                I have the top half of a six-pack.
                (I'm a chick & I'm fine with a little belly coverage - so I probably won't go for the whole 6.)

                • Congrats everyone! Elwyne, can you let me know how maintaining is going? I have 10-15 lbs to go, but I have had trouble with maintaining in the past and could use some encouragement from someone who is managing it.

                  • Oh, yay Milly!
                    I bought some size 4 "wish" pants at Goodwill, (99cents!)- I can get them on but not quite close.
                    elwyne-big congrats!

                    Today I noticed I just didn't want my lunch, and stopped eating it (I kid you not, it took me an hour to give myself permission to do that!). I finally ate a piece of celery with sunbutter at 3:30. I'm a bit hungry, but I can wait til supper (pork adobo).
                    I never, ever thought I would IF.

                    • My triumph is that I lost 20 lbs. More importantly, I went to the MD the other day and my blood pressure is in normal range and I don't need any medication. It's so amazing, because I have had high blood pressure for something like 12 years. Yeah for me!

                      • I saw my rheumatologist today. He was thrilled with how great my joints looked In a few months we are going to consider reducing the LAST arthritis drug I am on (I was on 4 drugs when I started PB and still felt like crap every day)

                        On top of that, I got weighed while I was there I found out I have lost 45 lbs since August...I'm 5'2'' tall, so 45 lbs goes a long way. The medical assistant who checked me in actually asked if I had been pregnant at my last appointment I tried not to be too insulted.

                        • Thanks for the inspiration Griff! I've been primal for about a month now. I have several triumphs to share. Firstly, my pants are looser (not quite down a size yet). As I have about 40 pounds left to lose , the weight is coming off pretty slowly (I lost 50 pounds miserably before starting PB). I feel awesome in general. I have loads more energy, and feel happier. Oh yeah, no more IBM! Primal living just makes perfect sense. I am so happy I stumbled across MDA and these forums, which led me toThe Primal Blueprint, and The Paleo Diet. Both were great reads and I can't wait to get my hands on more books pertaining to the subject. Anyways, you're doing fantastic! Congrats!

                            Jammies, this is an incredible triumph. I've noticed positive changes with my MS as well. No more fatigue (which was luckily my worst physical symptom). Good luck on your journey! You are also very inspiring! I didn't realize I was posting on page 74 the first time (eek). I didn't realize how many inspirational stories came after Griff's triumph story. Congrats to everyone! Good luck with all of your endeavors!! Forgive my forum newbieness =p

                              • I was at a conference for the last 2 days with some guys I hadnt seen for 3 months (i went primal 2 months ago). In the last break before the end today, one of the guys came and asked me 'are you OK? you've lost loads of weight and we're worried you might be ill'
