  • I went to the park with the dog this weekend for a nice hike with lots of hills - we do this at least a few times a week. For some reason, I just felt like adding in some hill sprints I did about 5 of them and....I can't believe I am saying this....they were kinda fun!

    I have always, always, always hated exercise - even in the YEARS I spent as a very fit athlete. I just never understood the joy people took in exerting themselves I did it because I was supposed to, but it was always a white-knuckling-it kind of experience. I have pretty bad RA and low energy (all greatly helped by primal) so I had sort of decided that my body just hated to move when it didn't need to.

    So I'm not exactly ready to go out and start cross-fit or anything - but I am looking forward to my trip out to the park for some sprints - which is huge for me

      • I love this thread even more than the before/after pix thread. Makes my heart smile.

        CONGRATULATIONS, EVERYONE.

        • My 14 year old son just came in with his shirt off -- "look, Mom... I'm not husky anymore!" He's not as on board with primal as the DH and I, but that clearing out the pantry and fridge has really made a (10-15lb) difference in him, too! (proud/smug mom blush)

          • My girlfriend can put her arms around me and interlace her fingers... when we met she could get the tips of her middle fingers to just touch if she squeezed hard.

            • Nice ones CattyB and Glockin Grok! (And everyone else too, they're just the most recent!)

              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

              • In one morning switch over from 38-34 pants, doubled my pullup max (2), and dropped below 200 lbs for the first time in a while.

                  • I am officially sitting here in jeans (buttoned, zipped!) that I ordered back in June and were way too small at the time, like, not even close. I was supposed to return them, but just never got around to it.

                    • Our office held a type of "Biggest Loser" contest starting in July. I put my $5.00 into the pot 2 weeks after starting Paleo/Primal (and having already lost about 15 lbs). It cost you a dollar if your weight had gone up from the previous week.

                      Today was the announcement of the winner --- ME (by a huge margin over the 1st runner-up)! I'd lost 8.14% of my 'starting' body weight and walked away with $57.00!

                              • I succeeded in avoiding the muffin in the fridge until it went stale! In a moment of weakness, I took it out and tried to nibble on it, but even the frosting was hard and it barely even squished in the middle (yes I consider cutting it open to save anything good left inside). It went into the trash with nary a sigh.
