    The OP is much younger, has never had children, and has different goals than I do (she also seems to have commitment issues - sorry Tanya!).

    There are women on here who are dealing with a whole host of hormonal and other health issues. Nothing is going to work for everbody.

    I am also 48 and I don't have any trouble dropping fat when I am 99% and don't overeat (meaning I eat only when truly hungry and stop before being over-full.)

    When I joined back in September. I full into this. I only ate meat, veggies, and eggs. I lost about 20 lbs in a matter of months. However, I was on this very forum, and still reasearching trying to keep in the game, loving how I was feeling. And around November, I saw a post giving advice to newbies. I saw some of the senior members state how this is not a religion, so don't take this too seriously. And in all honesty, I took it very much to heart, and really backed off. I have gained all my weight back. Grrr.... I know I did not consider this a religion, but I guess I thought of myself as obsessing? Well any who, here I am still trying to even get to 80/20. I am IFing quite well, where I'm eating with a 6 hour eating window. However, I'm still struggling to go back to fully Primal. I hate it, and I hate that I take that statement to heart. I think I would rather obsess the way I was, and be happy.. but I listened to people who have done this for awhile and fell off the wagon. Any suggestions on how to get back on?
