    My first Primal-versay

    Primal Fuel
    I'm one month in, having started the 21 day challenge and now I'm just keeping on.

    Have loved the last month despite the wobbles of travel to visit family (like going to another country what with their plain weird relationship with food). I love the movement, the energy, the cooking.

    When I read the PB, I was struck by the phrase "effortless weight loss." Yeah, yeah I thought ... you can't get something for nothing. But the weight has just come off ... effortlessly. But then I realized how much it means to stop eating SAD. When I go to the grocery store instead of the Farmer's Market, it really saddens me to see the "food" products of SAD. It's all just empty calories and sugar ... everywhere, everything. It really blows my mind.

    Besides the obvious change I can see and feel in my body (loose clothes, better sleep, intensely vivid dreams, loads of energy), my blood pressure has been dropping. My physician has been categorizing me as pre-hypertensive with BP in the range of 130/90 for the past few years. My reading last week was 116/85.

    First month was a huge success and now onwards!

    Six weeks on Primal Living. My weight loss has paused, not sure why. But my focus on exercise has been a success. Lots of walkin these past 2 weeks ... 25 mi per week taken in 4 to 5 sessions of an hour plus in the woods.

    Today's blood pressure reading was 108/77, down from a reading of 129/88 in early July.

    Really pleased and trying not to over tinker the pause in weight loss.

    7 weeks in and was facing a 3rd week of my weight loss plateau. I stepped back from the refeed tinkering and just went back to basics. A good primal week of VLC (<55g carbs daily), 1700-1900 kcal.

    Happy to say I got the scale to budge.

    In last 7 weeks, I've dropped 27 pounds.

    Starting weight 7/21/14 - 272 lb / Current Weight - 245 lb / Goal Weight - 220 lb

    Starting BP 130/90 / Current BP 110/79.

    Feeling great and continuing on!
