DAY 1! Jan 8, 2013
Very, very excited to go Primal! Have been reading and researching for about 6 weeks and decided today was the best time to start now that holiday season is over. I am in great shape, exercise 4-6x week including weight training and plyometrics, but injured my back in late-August which has caused sleep deprivation, fewer workouts, and discomfort; however, I am envisioning healing and health for my back now and it does seem to be getting much better. I just finished reading "The Secret" so I've decided to live my life by the Law of Attraction. For a week now I've been saying to myself, "I am thin, I weigh 137lbs!" instead of my usual, "OMG, I'm getting fat!".
My friend and I decided to have a contest to see who could lose 10-lbs by late February, so this morning I jumped on my scale and then almost fell off. I've gained 20-lbs in 2-yrs! So now my goal is really to lose 20+-lbs not just 10-lbs.
Here are my measurements as of this morning:
Age: (almost 43, one week out)
I am such a foodie and wine drinker. Any suggestions on how much wine to allow myself following the 80/20 rule?
B: 3 paleo pancakes w/maple syrup (pancakes made w plantains, eggs, coconut oil, vanilla)
S: 1 hard boiled egg
L: paleo coleslaw, venison
6 20-second sprints
1.5 mile stroll to daughter's school
I need support because I can get off track easily. Seeing my weight this morning really shocked me so I suppose that it was a wake-up call. Thanks everyone!
Hello in answer to your question about the skin remaining on the thighs it is for fat/ protein content I believe.
Chicken dark meat 6oz has 47.2 grams of protein
chickem breast 6oz has 37.8 gms of protein and less fat.
I am a soon to be 42 yo male who is moderately active. Here are my current stats
My main forms of physical activities are 2/x week Tae Kwon Do, road and mtn biking and hiking. I used to be a endurance nut who ran, biked, rock climbed, etc. I let that fall apart when we had kids and now want to take back what I let get away. I realize I will never be 150 lbs again and now focused on transforming what I have into something healthier and better.
Wish me luck
Hello. I'm 45, married w/two kids (19 and soon to be 12). I am at my heaviest and have been this weight on & off since I had my youngest. This is my official 2nd day eating Primal, since I gave up the ungodly amount of red wine I was drink nightly on Monday. I tried for a week before to eat Primal & did fine until I started drinking wine & then I would eat the bad stuff I crave.
My intention is to create the healthy and energetic body I am supposed to have and hopefully my spirit will catch-up.
Off to open a journal now.
im having trouble figuring out how to start a new thread so i can start my own journal.
I think your answer is on the first page. Start a new thread will be what you need. It is at the top of the journals page.
I love your weight tracker. I just got one too. Here it goes (this might not work).

Different exercises, I walk at lunch time for 30 minutes although this is a fairly new addition to my exercise. I don't
Eat red meat or shellfish ( wish I did) love fruit and worry that I may eat too much, I have raspberries pretty much everyday and also have apple, pear, banana. I drink plenty of water daily. In the 3 weeks I have been following Primal I have actually gained weight (4lb) is this normal in the early days? I don't have any treats and am mindful of what I eat I have totally eliminated potatoes,rice,pasta and bread from my diet. I have just bought the primal quick and easy meals and have tried out a few of the recipes. Any advice would be really appreciated.
