  • A few recent triumphs since starting this on Oct 1. Small triumphs, but triumphs nonetheless.

    - resisting the box of cookies my supervisor brought in for her birthday
    - staying under 300lbs for more than a week - probably permanent now though
    - actually feeling pretty decent after hunting and working on the farm the whole weekend, which incidentally is the most ideal primal workout I can think of: 8-10 hours of slow, steady work with nice, meaty meals interspersed throughout!
    - putting on my nice pants for a presentation in my grad class tonight and finding them almost comically loose. For probably the first time ever, I'll be self-conscious because my clothes are too loose

    Keep the triumphs coming, people! They're truly inspiring!

    • Four months ago I was a tight 20. Today I bought a size 14 pants, tight but I can button them! I'm getting soooo close to "normal sizes"

          • This weekend I was visiting some friends in LA. I loaned one of these friends my copy of Good Calories Bad Calories a month ago, and ever since she read it they have become hard-core paleo/primal converts. We ate lots of meats and veggies, and had our own private grok-fest on the beach: lifting driftwood, throwing driftwood like a spear, tossing driftwood like a caber, and doing wheelbarrows in the sand. We all had so much energy and just reveled in being physically active in the sun (see my new icon for photo proof!)

              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

                • When I started eating more healthfully back in January (Not primal, but still better than before. Primal didn't start until June.) I was 217.8 lbs, which on my 5'8" frame wasn't very flattering. Just weighed myself this morning and the scale read 169.8. I haven't seen the 160's since high school!!! My goal is to be down to 165 by Christmas, which at this rate seems totally attainable. I'm noticing some definition coming back to my stomach, and the size 12 jeans I bought in August are feeling pretty baggy already. I was a size 18, almost size 20 when I started doing this... I never thought I'd get back into a size 10 before the year was out, but it's sure lookin' that way All while eating delicious foods and having tons of energy. Love, love, love this way of life!

                      Cheeeeeeeeeeers! Feels GOOD to jump those hurdles, doesn't it? I started out above 300, now I'm secretly thinking about how I can practice Parkour-style "moves" at the park without anyone staring ;0)

                      • I got down to 200lbs! Then I ate a whole pork shoulder. With the skin. I think my body wants me to stay between 11 and 14 percent body fat. Soldiers traditionally kept in that range in case they needed the extra energy (marches and extended battles) and I come from a long line of them, so it's probably built in by now.
                        In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                        • The other day Grace & I went to lunch with Mr. Bork where he ordered a hot dog. When it came, Grace (without being prompted) removed the bun and put it on my plate, cheerfully saying "Here you go, mommy!"

                            • ^ Great job everyone, I love reading everyone's successes. It helps keep me going especially when I am off track!
                              I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.
