    My introduction :)

    Primal Fuel
    Hello!

    My name is Andrea. I am 31 years old. I have been chubby my entire life. Never too fat and NEVER thin. Well, that's not true, once in grade 12 I made it to an all time weight max of 172 and then the following year I made it to an all time weight low, 127. Both were short lived, otherwise i have been somewhere in between. Always hovering around the same weight, never happy with myself. As a kid I was pot bellied and still my abdomen is my trouble zone.

    I am 5'4" tall and hover around 155lbs with little effort.

    In May I was introduced to the Whole30 and I made it 23 days. Since then I've stuck with a paleo-esque diet, with the odd slip here and there and one all out rebellion for about a week. I then stumbled across the PB book and read it within days. It makes SO MUCH sense.

    I still struggle, sugar is my major trouble area.

    I bounce back and forth between "I DO NOT need to eat sugar, I can do a 21 day challenge no problem" and "A little sugar isn't that bad, I can't go forever without sugar." Easier said than done! As soon as I give in to a little something one time I have trouble stopping.

    The changes I have made since May have not gone unnoticed.

    My IBS is almost nonexistent (except for days when I go off track a bit)
    My skin is clear
    My body has changed in so many ways
    I look better than I have in about 12 years

    There are still changes I would like to see and I know they are coming.

    Anyway, I have been reading the forum for a few weeks now, I find it very inspiring and motivating. I can't wait until I can post my success story!

    I don't necessarily have a weight goal in mind. I have focused on weight my entire adult life and it has done me no good. My goal is to feel good, and to play on a beach in a bikini with my kids without feeling self conscious!

    My 21 day challenge starts today!
