  • Compliments are rolling in!

    Been primal about 6 weeks now, so still very new to it, but already have received several compliments about how good I look and asking how much I have lost. The scale hasn't moved a whole lot, about 7 lbs, but my body is changing and my attitude has too. I feel much more confident and have a new sense of identity and assuredness that I never had before finding PB.

    EXCELLENT!
    Ditch the scale and focus on those body changes, they are more telling than anything else. Take body photos and body measurements if you want to how your body is changing over time.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

      ^ What Dirlot said. Photos make a world of difference. Stick with it and enjoy the changes!

        Congrats and don't worry. The scale will reflect weight loss eventually. You'll hit a couple "dead" spots where you know you must be losing but the scale doesn't show it. I step on the scale every 3 weeks or so just for some positive reinforcement but I feel way lighter than the scale reflects.

            Great to hear. It seems like scale weight loss comes in bunches. You can weigh yourself once a week for like 3 weeks and see the number getting smaller. Then you can weigh yourself for a couple of weeks and the number won't budge or even go up a number or three. Point is use the scale as a reference. The way clothes fit is a better barometer and as long as the same ppl see that you are changing should be enough for you to know everything is working like it should. I am on this 6 weeks weight lifting program. I am on week 2 and I took a couple of pics at the start. Can't wait to compare them at the 6 week mark.

              Ditto. I've not lost anything (I was a rather healthy weight when I started) but I LOOK thinner and feel better. Measure, maybe keep the scales if they do body-fat%, though, that's one to keep an eye on.
              Congrats!
