  • Hooray for "Skinny Jeans" - Whooooo!
    There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

    • I finally have a fridge again after two months without, and I am now ready to go primal. I just bought $100 of fresh food (the only packaged/processed items were condiments) and made my first meal at home in months: a pork chop, a bowl cherry tomatoes and a sliced zucchini, and a glass of whole milk.

      SO HAPPY!

      • I'm finally out of maternity-jeans and back into my fat skinny jeans. Still 10 kilos away from fitting actual skinny-jeans though.

        • Tried on an old pair of jeans last night that 6 months ago were too small for me. Now they're too big

          • I donated blood yesterday and it was good. For starters they didn't have to look at both arms to try and decide which one was easier to find a good vein, they just grabbed an arm and were good to go without hunting through my extra body fat. They also do blood pressure and resting heart rate. Mine were as follows.

            BP: 103/69 HR: 52

            I can't wait to get my complementary Cholesterol screen back even if it's not a comprehensive fasting test. My HDL has generally been low in the past with my LDL being considered acceptable. Also, when the nurse doing the actual blood draw looked at my paper she said "You're really healthy". Not bad considering I still have 30 more pounds I want to lose!

            • I'm below 200 lbs for the first time in 9 years! Weighed myself this morning and the scale said 199! I couldn't believe it. I stepped off and back on a few times just to make sure. I had to call my wife over to confirm it, "Hey babe check this out! Are my eyes deceiving me?"

              • The co-worker that was worried he would not pass his entry physical for the Army back in June told me today he passed with 4% body fat to spare!
                I told him about the PB which I had been following for about 2 months at that point, and he just ran with it.

                I am four months in, 30 pounds lighter and off the blood sugar roller coaster!

                • I just started eating this way 5 days ago. Since then I've been sleeping very well and, for the first time in over two years since I injured it, I woke up with zero pain/inflammation in my shoulder.

                  • Down in weight again! (see below) and that's after a week of eating primal but little thought to restricting what I ate. I'm going to cut back on the cheese and dairy this week and see if that helps me along

                    • Had to go shopping yesterday for new wedding gear. Got a size 34" waist, slim fit suit pants and a large (no more XL) button down shirt. All the 36" pants were too baggy. Hellz yeah!

                      • You guys! You guys! OMG you guys!!!
                        I went to a pot luck this weekend at a friend's house. She happened to have a scale in the bathroom, and I thought "...what the hell". It's the first time I've gotten on one since I started.

                        You guys. I looked at it. Stepped off, turned it off and back on, and did it again.

                        42 pounds. Even wearing all my clothes, full pockets, belly full of potatoes and chicken and blueberries. Holy buckets. Now, it'll probably be another fifty before I feel like I can see a difference... but geez I felt high. And honestly? I didn't think I'd lost anything. I even asked my husband what he thought and he gave me a crappy answer. I truly was sticking to it because whether or not I was losing weight, I felt a holy hell of a lot better. I didn't care if I lost a pound--I was just happy I wasn't having constant heartburn and nausea.

                        Cheers for MDA ;0)

                          For anyone who eats the amount they calculate and stop for fear of over eating but dont actually know what full feels like, It is very very strange. I am 40ish and i have never felt full other than by my stomach being full


                          Is that my leptin calling Boo-fuckin-YA
                          I wanted to CHEER for this. It's SO STRANGE the first time, innit? I remember being startled at the feeling! And even now it's very... very weird. I had dinner last night and only ate about half of what I thought I would because suddenly, I was just *done*. Before PB I had honestly never had that experience: "satiation". Who knew???

                            YES. I feel like a lean person wearing a thick suit. I'm peeling off the layers a little at a time, but I'm in no rush. I feel strong and healthy under it all. This is all SO STRANGE, and WONDERFUL.

                              • So this isn't a PB success, but I'm going to Banff, Canada from October - May 2012, and have just been offered a job and a place to live while I'm there!! I'm so excited.

                                Andddd just had a job confirmed being an au pair to my cousin's in Melbourne from July 2012 to January 2013.

                                The next 18 months is coming together so nicely and I've found a CF gym in each place for while I'm away. Yaaaay.


                                So maybe it is a PB success...life is just going in the right direction and achieving loads since my eating and exercise has been on track
