Back after 3 years.
After much flailing and failed diets, I've finally come back to the Primal Blueprint to start my health journey anew. Crawling back, really, because I know the success of this lifestyle and I'm almost embarrassed enough not to want to post this, but I know I should.
I had started the primal lifestyle way back in June of 2013 (and starting again in June oddly enough, maybe it's a sign). I didn't last as long as I wished I had on it, but boy did it work. That was 3 years and 40lbs ago. I can't remember what exactly derailed my positive train, but something did and here we are now. I've tried so many things since then, from half-baked "less" gluten diets, to full vegetarian diets, and WWatchers too (which I absolutely hate every time I try it). Nothing has stuck, not surprisingly.
My health has recently taken a turn for the worse, mostly within the past 6-8 months. I have the standard problems you'd expect of someone standing 5'1" at my weight, everything except high blood pressure (small blessings), and I'm now considered dangerously close to diabetic. I also have PCOS, which I've kinda ignored for a long time. Bad, I know. Earlier this year it came back to bite me, flaring up as it hadn't done before and really messing me up.
Anyway, I've met some new people in my life who have really inspired me to get out and get healthy, in many different ways. And I know the first real step to that is getting my diet to where it should be. So I'm back to do this again, and I think through patience and persistence I can feel as good as I felt those few months 3 years ago.
Hope this wasn't too much text, looking forward to getting back into the Primal community!
