Accidentally put on a pair of "skinny" pants (was looking for some warm-ish ones to head out for the day since it's been cold here) -- they're [B][U]TWO[/U][/B] sizes smaller than what I've been wearing over the last month!
I bought them about 6 weeks ago at the thrift store for a couple of bucks. Once home, I almost squeezed into them and thought "another 10-15 lbs and they'll fit". I've only lost another 3 lbs since then, but my body has been re-shaping to such a degree that they not only fit, but actually [I]flatter[/I] my new figure!
I bought a pair of size 36 Levi's over Thanksgiving. The first time I've even tried to wear Levi's in probably 10 years. Trying them on was always just too depressing.
They're starting to get too loose.
Well... I just punched out another hole in my belt.... I may soon have to cut off the extra slack (the tip comes all the way to 9oclock now)
I've been doing push ups against the counter, shoulder press ups and push ups with knees on the floor for several months. Last time I tried a regular push up, without knees on the floor, my arms shook and I collapsed on the mat so I've avoided doing them.
Don't know why but yesterday I tried the regular push up on a whim, and whaddya know?!!! I could do it! I did 10 of them. Of course, I really can't go that low to the floor but it's a start, and it gives me something to aim for. Very exciting.
I'm back on the wagon after a couple of weeks off it, and my skin is clearing up again. 2 weeks of wheat-eating gave me a nasty case of acne, including a huge disgusting zit right in the middle of my face. I'm in my thirties, so this was not welcome at all. Just 2 days of eating Primal has cleared up my skin to the point that it's perfectly smooth and almost all the acne lesions are gone. I can't believe how quickly it worked.
I just cooked steak for the first time in my life. It came out so delicious! Better than most restaurant steaks I've had. Must be beginner's luck, but I still count it as a triumph! Don't know why I've never tried before. I'm only just learning to cook, though, so every new thing seems daunting until I actually try it.

Congrats! Ive slowly been building up my skills with real meat as well. If you really want to get into meat, I highly highly highly recommend this book: [url]http://www.amazon.com/River-Cottage-Meat-Book/dp/1580088430/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323734071&sr=8-1[/url]
Tried to do a back bridge the other day (did one very badly earlier in the year when I last tried out of curiosity) and lifted myself up with ease. Even lowered my self down, not thudding to the ground.
Also honing in on under 100kg mark for the first time I can remember (was a fat teenager) (5kg to go).
In fact my jacket from my last year of high school, that never fitted right at the time, is loose and too big 10 years later.
My co-worker 4 weeks ago when he asked about PB: "Wahhh, too hard, I like bread too much."
I gave him my copy of the 21 Day and told him to just read it.
He told me about two weeks ago he was going to give it a try.
He called me and said "What do I do when I'm on call, I only have time to get fast food, waahhhhh!"
I said just go ahead if that's all you think you can eat, just ditch the bread.
Yesterday he said, "I noticed when I order three hamburgers and throw the bread away, that's a lot of food! I was eating all that? And maybe it's just my imagination, but I feel thinner and not bloated anymore, and it's only been a week. I can't believe I can eat all this meat and eggs. I'm starting to learn how to cook for the first time in my life and it's kind of fun. Plus, I don't really miss the bread like I thought I would."
