Despite failing to properly incorporate the "sprint every once in a while" part of the Primal fitness plan into my life (a current goal of mine) I seem to have somehow gotten better at it anyway. Today while walking to and from the train on my way to meet someone, I had the worst possible luck and kept seeing the flashing "do not walk" hand start up when I was still only halfway to the intersection. So I ended up sprinting through about ten blocks' worth of intersections this morning, which as someone who has always been terrible at running, is a big deal for me.
Also, I managed to actually lose weight during Thanksgiving by eating Primally. And also did not suffer from the usual food coma and the like, so that was cool.
I find triumphs in the little things that I keep discovering along the way, even when I think there can't be much more. Over the last few months, I've noticed that my eye sight seems to have changed - sometimes its actually easier to see things without my glasses. This morning I discovered a whole thread on this topic and the idea that there is a poor eyesight/sugar connection so maybe I'm not imagining it after all.
"I find triumphs in the little things that I keep discovering along the way"
I TOTALLY relate to that! ;)
A little recent triumph: Heavy cream replaced chocolate cravings and fruit binging. The minute I top some fruit with a splash of cream, that is all I need, no more reruns to the fridge!
A BIG triumph: IBS under control, or better said, under my grasp, the minute I let go, the minute IBS strikes back. I have the control now!
I finally did it! I finally did it! (well, not just me, I had a LOT of help along the way!)

And IBS is under control, and binge eating disorder is almost entirely a thing of the past, and getting Hashimoto's reined in, and chronic fatigue is lifting, and see the first page of my journal for about 50 other major & minor improvements I've seen!

Well done on hitting your goal, MamaGrok!

when and where dahrlin
Doctor [after he calcs my BMI]: "You're a little overweight, here's a list of foods you should be eating"
Me [takes a look at CW nonsense and laughs]: I've been doing pretty much the exact opposite and lost 40kg.
Doctor [somewhat taken aback]: "Just keep doing whatever you've been doing"
Next time visit a different doctor, when discussing my medical history I mention I got gallstones but instead of having my gall bladder removed I opted to treat the cause and lose weight and get healthy instead. Doc say he would never guess from looking at me, asks me how I did it. I explain Paleo to him, and he instead of giving me warnings he gets super enthusiastic about it, asks a bunch of questions, gets me to recommend him Primal blueprint, says how he wants to get his patients into it and makes my visit free!

I second that. Woohoo indeed. :)
