Wow, I'm totally inspired by your post! I've been Primal only a week, so it's exciting to read about your results in only two months.
I'm in my mid-40s and on meds for diabetes & HBP for the past 7 years. I recently quit taking a statin that I had been on for a year to see if it affected intermittent joint paint I had been having (that I was attributing to Hashimoto's/hypothyroidism). Guess what, I haven't had any issues since I stopped the statin. And I would like to live a lifestyle that gets me off other meds, too.
Thanks for your post. I am feeling hopeful about this. I also love Mark's fitness plan. I already do lots of slow-and-long (walking, cycling, gardening), and play (mainly ballroom dancing). I am psyched about doing more LHT's, and have been working on my ability to do a squat. I realized that my big gut affects my balance when I squat, so I'll just keep on trying.
Meanwhile, I feel confident that with dealing with the thyroid, and watching my eating habits, my lipids will work themselves out.
Anyway, yay on you!
