      Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

          • Just for fun, and because it's page 500, and because today I FINALLY beat the 50lb mark!!!!!



            (old pic; I'll do an official "50lb lost" one soon) (and no, it's not cheating. that wasn't just baby weight. For TWO MONTHS postpartum I couldn't lose one pound, and actually started gaining. My thighs were almost 28". Baby didn't do that, lol.)

            I did it with no exercise because of chronic fatigue. Thanks to primal & Jack "the quack" Kruse & Naturethroid, that, too, is finally bidding me adieu. This was 50lb lost, easily, and maintained easily, with no hunger, no calorie counting, ever, just by a primal diet alone. (I will say that I have to throw 80/20 out the window b/c of Hashimoto's & probable celiac disease. It's 99/1 for me, and the only way I got the scale moving again was by going 100%.)

                  Gadsie: You have also made visible progress in building muscle. I wish I had started weight training as early as you did. You will be an absolute beast in a few years if you keep with it. Keep training smart and avoid injuries.
                  Thanks, I try to take rest when I feel pain somewhere, but sometimes the gym is just too addictive to skip
                  well then

                  • Hi!
                    I'm new here and have been really, really inspired. I'm not one to do something like this (especially because it's super embarrassing) but I would really like to be held accountable on my journey. I have seen other people post this way, and thought I would try, too.

                    Here are my before pictures (taken yesterday):
                    IMG_1217.jpg

                    IMG_1218.jpg

                    I was pretty appalled at how bloated my stomach is! I tend to retain water, but it's never been this bad before.
                    I'm going to try to update once a month.

                    Stats:
                    Height: 4'10" (yes, I'm tiny and ridiculously overweight for my height)
                    Starting Weight (before I went 100% primal yesterday!): 164
                    Current Weight: 162.8
                    Goal Weight: 115
                    Problem Areas: Arms, Upper back, inner thighs

                    I plan to eat at least 85% primal in the long term, but I am going pretty hard for now with 100%. My birthday is coming up in about 3 weeks, so I am pretty sure that 100% will drop.

                          • Thanks for the kind words. It is kind of amazing to be here. I randomly picked my goal weight b/c I needed something I had some hope of achieving, thinking I'd never get back down to where I really should be (being 5'4" and all). And it was a nice, even number.

                            It feels wonderful to be here! The improvement in hypothyroid, IBS, celiac, CFS, and BED symptoms is the real clencher, though.

                              • Mamagrok, when you went from 99% to 100% primal what was in that 1% that you gave up?
