  • Your tache rocks my world, great work there, and on the weight loss.
    Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

          • As I said before, I have kept a few progress pics to see the effect the lifestyle has had on my training so here's some for a good comparison...

            Before paleo - March 2011

            Photoon2011-05-11at2209.jpg

            After about 3 months of paleo

            Photoon2011-11-06at2212.jpg

            And then tonight, after 6 months paleo, and one year on from the original pic.

            Photo on 2012-03-12 at 21.08.jpg

            And they tell you that you starve yourself and that nasty metabolism goes into starvation mode and focuses on burning muscle instead of fat...

              Anyhow, here's a quick before-and-current snapshot. The "before" picture is pretty representative of how I had been for years. I'm about the same weight now as in the old picture, but I was just always soft and doughy.

              We began eating Paleo/Primal in September of 2011, doing just the bare-bones basics for the first month and kicking it into full-on the following month.
              Yay, your pictures finally got approved! That is an amazing change in just 6 months! Well done

                Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

It pretty much made my WEEK!!! (She then wanted to learn more about this "Primal stuff" I've occasionally mentioned...)

                  I decided to snap a photo this morning and then dig up something from December - found a 'before' photo that was taken 3 months ago to the day.

                  It's been just over 9 weeks since I began Primal living and I've lost 9 lbs, I feel AH-MAZING and realized that I likely did have a mild gluten intolerance that I never recognized (like most folks here). No more bloating or cramping, I've got constant energy, been cooking ALL the time and just loving the entire journey this decision has taken me on. The Primal Blueprint Cookbooks rock, Nom Nom Paleo is a great cooking site as well, not to mention the hundreds of other cooking blogs I've found.

                  The weight is still coming off, but much slower, which is fine. The best part is that the last time I lost a significant amount of weight, I was a competitive triathlete, nearly starving myself, training 15-20 hours/week and miserable. I definitely swam, biked and ran fast, but that was about the only thing I was happy about. To be enjoying "moving slowly, often"; to revel in the bike rides through the vineyards at a mellow pace instead of a breakneck speed where your eyes are only staring at the road - it's just been the most incredible, fantastic thing. I am still working on getting in more 'heavy lifting' into my schedule, but I'll get there.

                  I'm just savoring every moment and couldn't be happier that I made this decision. As Mark would say - Grok On!

                    Great progress! That's why I like this lifestyle: yes, work is involved, but not as much as conveniently thought. Just do simple switches, then you're gold
