    Last week, I reached my goal of 20 real (not girl) push-ups - from being able to do zero just 4 months ago! Next goal: 50!

    Dunno whether this really counts as a "triumph" because I've probably had the strength to do this for a long while (just never had a chance to try it), but I was joking around with a friend on Monday and on a whim, I decided to try a fireman's lift/carry. The girl in question is 120-125 lbs., but with one arm around her knees I lifted her without much difficulty and probably could have done a fireman's walk from the rear of the store (Walmart) to the front fairly easily.
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

    I know, objectively, the scale doesn't mean anything, but I've heard stories of people with a lot of weight to loose seeing large numbers dropping quickly at the beginning. This didn't happen to me at all. In six months I was only able to loose 15 pounds. I stepped on the scale this morning and there was a WHOLE TEN POUNDS missing! I now weigh five pounds less than I did when I was married and I'm a size or so smaller. I started at 245, I'm now at 220... holycrap that's 25 pounds! DDD

    For the first time ever, I am now starting to show signs of having that feminine curve in my midsection and officially have a waist.

    I used to have a hard time falling asleep. I HAD to listen to music or the TV, and if I didn't, I would lay there for hours thinking. Since going primal 6 weeks ago, it takes me less than 5 minutes to go under. And I used to have to sit around for 10 minutes before I could get up once my alarm sounded. Now I can spring up and get along with my day, almost no problem.

    23 year old friend of my new neighbor was hitting on me. He thought I was 26. I am 42! Told him that and he's STILL interested.
