  • I go to the movies a lot, I am a total movie geek. In the past I would always get popcorn and M & M's and mix them together. I couldn't sit in the theater without having that in front of me. WELL, now I can go to a movie and get NOTHING and not feel deprived! If I think I might want a snack, I'll cut up an apple or take a small baggy of macadamia nuts and dried coconut...oh, and a bottle of water! I am saving so much money on this way of eating, specially at the theater. I sit there feeling very smug )

    • After a couple weeks on a plateau (partially self inflicted by too much cake for my son's birthday) I have finally dropped below 200lbs! I haven't been this weight in almost 5 years, and when I made it before I struggled through working out for 1.5 hrs 5+ days a week. Primal is really a godsend in my life. My wife loves that she no longer has to worry about me ending up diabetic and cancer ridden the way that so many in my family have been before me.

      • I have had a series of people not recognize me lately. I went to a concert on Friday night and some friends got to the club after I did and one gal asked her husband if I was there yet. I was literally 3 feet in front of her and she figured that it couldn't possibly be me. I am 6'4" and don't often easily blend.

        • I went out for dinner for a friends birthday tonight, and saw people I hadn't seen in several months. When we stood up to leave, one woman said "Oh my god, you've lost so much weight! I couldn't tell when you were sitting down!"

          I felt pretty damned good, even though I have a long way to go. I needed that compliment bigtime.

          • I am sitting here typing this wearing my goal pants, the ones that have hung in my closet on display for several years. They are McKinley zip-off adventure pants, nylon/poly/cotton or something, but with no stretch whatsoever. Though they are slightly snug when sitting, they are perfect standing and I feel amazing wearing them at last. I will need a bit more space in them before I do any "adventuring", but for work they will be fine. WAHOO!!

                      • Eight weeks in = 20# weight loss. That's a full 10% of my bodyweight.
                        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

                        • It's been 9 weeks since I've started the leptin reset and my sex drive has increased, skin looks better, sleep is great, am warmer more often, can finally tell when I'm full and I'm down 18 pounds to boot! I can wear anything between a sz 16-12 and some medium tops!

                              • Im down 20 pounds in a month and a half now and feel phenominal. I really don't believe CW on anything anymore. My first experience noticing how wrong CW is was about 6 years ago when I quit smoking easily by allen carrs book. Then a few years later I found thunders place, which fixed various aheeem male issues.

                                I only wonder what CW I'm holding onto that I done know about yet.
