    Red face mondawg: coming out of the cave

    wow, I am so happy to have found this site! I had an eating disorder since I was 9 and my weight has been a ride on a roller coaster, not to mention a big mind _ _ _ _!!!!! Last week I finally got help and have had a spontaneous miraculous healing. THEN, I found this site. I have been addicted to carbs and sugars my whole life-hello, correlation with the eating disorder???!!!!

    What is shocking is that after reading the Taubes' books, I realize that my carb/sugar eating habits may even be responsible for my lethargy and even my depression, AND my overall inability to come out of the cave. I have spent YEARS hiding myself away in isolation because I felt so damn fat all the time. Yet, I could not stop bingeing on carbs and sugars. Now I see that I was feeling fat because of all those empty, mindless, fatmaking, unsatisfying carbs. Oy!!

    It's no wonder I had a spontaneous healing! I just got hit over the head with a sledgehammer!!! and am happy about it!! I feel so free, and I can't wait to know what it feels like to lose the fat and gain the muscle.

    I have ordered Mark's book and the cookbooks and have downloaded and read the free literature. My favorite part of the site is the success stories-wow, the recovery! and results!!! I love the pix. They EXUDE confidence!! I was motivated to take a BEFORE pic of myself. (I even let it all hang out! no more gut sucking for me) I will post it when I have gotten some good results from my new primal lifestyle.

    So, my goal is to come out of the cave and feel great enough about myself and my body that I can go to the beach in a bikini. I dont want to waste any MORE of my life hiding away in isolation, shame and misery!!!

    thanks for being there! have a great night!

    You'll definitely see a change in your energy levels with this. I've gotten rid of my depression, headaches, acne and whole slew of bad things since going primal. I also sleep better on PB as well. Good luck to ya and I can't wait to hear more!

    tuesday may 17th 2011-almond butter and check in

    Geostump: Thanks so much for your reply!!!

    Yum, I just bought almond butter for the first time-wow, awesome!! Never tried it before. I want to make the almond banana pancakes recipe off the website

    Still been doing a lot of reading on the website and have really learned a lot. One of my favorite forums so far is The Advice for Newbies Page by naiadknight. I am SO glad I read that!! I was starting to feel out of sorts and dizzy and found out that my symptoms are the carb flu. I researched more about the carb flu and the best explanation I came across was on The Low Carb for You blog.

    I was also worried since I have been peeing a lot. I found the information on the Peeing a lot Page

    Phew! Thank goodness you are all there sharing your experiences!

    Am using the fitday.com website to keep track of my progress. I love how I can input my weight, food, and activity of the day. It's so easy to use since it already has the foods to choose from. I just search and click. It makes the transition from pre-primal to primal fun for me.

    Not only that, you guys are RIGHT. My pants already fit after 4 days. My son has been so sick and tired of seeing me in my sweats!! He doesn't get how tight my waistbands have been. wow, so great to get results so quickly!!

    want to be a babe in a Luc Besson movie

    Luc Besson is my favorite living filmmaker/writer/producer. I want to be a Besson Babe (as opposed to a Bond Girl). Go Primal

    had a good day. feel much better. Now starting to have that metallic taste in my mouth. today was a 20g carb day. I am so amazed at how satisfying it is to eat Primal!

    I got the books today! Yay! I went through all the recipes. Yum, they look good. I was facetiming with my son and was telling him about the books, and he said, "Yeah, but are you gonna cook mom??!!" and "oh, this is just another one of your fad diets." so I started showing him the pics in the book and he was really impressed with what I get to eat!! "Wow, I can't believe that is what you get to eat. Those meals sound awesome!" I think he will be happy when he comes home for the summer. It will be great for him when he goes off to college because he will know how to eat well in the dining hall.

    I wish I would have known before how to feed us both. Better late than never.

    Throwing away and selling all my fat clothes. Huzzah!

    cleaning out TONS of stuff before my move-selling and donating. Found a box with some old pairs of jeans-my son asked me if they were my skinny jeans. YES, they were, packed away for 6 years!! I tried them on and they fit!

    even a pair of vintage CK Jeans: "Nothing comes between me and my Calvins" Haha.

    PB for LIFE!!
