  • Here's a triumph: after four years of "trying" for pregnancy and avoiding all well-meaning medical interventions to help, seven months of Primal living (and my husband) got me pregnant =)

          CONGRATS! I've heard many stories of couples with fertility problems saying that once they went primal things got a lot easier.

          Increased fertility is probably the *only* thing about primal I dont like, ifyaknowhwatimean

            • down another pant size. that's 6" down from this time a year ago and 4" down from when I started back on, oh, August 1st. What's amazing to me is that I ate really horribly for the past month. I remained firmly primal, but ate more carbs than perhaps I should have.

                • Hooray! Thanks, Paleobird--you're the best ;0)

                  Another Primal triumph; with some helpful prenatal nutrition reminders from dragonfly, I lowered my BP drastically in just a couple days!

                      • I don't know if it's Primal, or newfound confidence, or what- but I was driving through downtown yesterday and got not just a definate second look, but also an appreciative smile from some totally random (good looking) guy. And I smiled back

                        • SCORE!
                          I ran into Walgreens for some Fisherman's Friend cough/throat lozenges (not totally Primal, but great for the nasty cough me and several co-workers have at the mo) and found that they had all of their Chiradelli chocolate bars on sale at 2 for $3.00... including the 86% Intense Dark. I spent $9.00 on chocolate today - enough to last me and the DH over a month.

                          • My wife and I have been primal since September. In that time, I've lost 10lbs - enough weight that all my jeans are slipping on me, and so is my utilikilt. Argh! So it's really awesome, but also a bit frustrating because it means having to buy new pants. I think I've dropped *at least* one pants size, maybe more - I used to be a 34, and now there are at least 5 inches of space in my waistband that are no longer being filled by my body! I have an Etsy shop, so to celebrate(and raise some jeans money) I thought I'd have a 20% off sale. I've been grinning every time I think of the catch phrase I used - "my loss is your gain". Anyways. If anyone's curious, you can find my shop here: greyedout.etsy.com I'm not sure what the rules are to linking to outside sites, so I won't put up an actual hyperlink.
