Hooray! Thanks, Paleobird--you're the best ;0)
Another Primal triumph; with some helpful prenatal nutrition reminders from dragonfly, I lowered my BP drastically in just a couple days!
“Falconry is not a hobby or an amusement; it is a rage. You eat and drink it, sleep it and think it. You tremble to write of it, even in recollection. It is as King James the First remarked, an extreme stirrer up of passions.” --T.H. White, The Godstone and the Blackymor

I just crossed two big thresholds lifting, I'm benching 10lbs heavier than my bodyweight (x3), and my 1rm deadlift is just over double my body weight. feels good!
I don't know if it's Primal, or newfound confidence, or what- but I was driving through downtown yesterday and got not just a definate second look, but also an appreciative smile from some totally random (good looking) guy. And I smiled back
I ran into Walgreens for some Fisherman's Friend cough/throat lozenges (not totally Primal, but great for the nasty cough me and several co-workers have at the mo) and found that they had all of their Chiradelli chocolate bars on sale at 2 for $3.00... including the 86% Intense Dark. I spent $9.00 on chocolate today - enough to last me and the DH over a month.
Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

My wife and I have been primal since September. In that time, I've lost 10lbs - enough weight that all my jeans are slipping on me, and so is my utilikilt. Argh! So it's really awesome, but also a bit frustrating because it means having to buy new pants. I think I've dropped *at least* one pants size, maybe more - I used to be a 34, and now there are at least 5 inches of space in my waistband that are no longer being filled by my body! I have an Etsy shop, so to celebrate(and raise some jeans money) I thought I'd have a 20% off sale. I've been grinning every time I think of the catch phrase I used - "my loss is your gain". Anyways. If anyone's curious, you can find my shop here: greyedout.etsy.com I'm not sure what the rules are to linking to outside sites, so I won't put up an actual hyperlink.
still working and pushing .. and still havent started working out ... but ive dropped 66 lbs in 3.5 months .. gone from 44 waist to 36 and its starting to feel big .. my 2XL shirts that fit decent before im swimming in .. i need XLs now, and really could nearly wear L ..but still waiting until i lose more weight to buy more clothes .. my true goal of 225 by new years should be hit which would be AWESOME ... 200 by March would be MAGIC .. and thats the goal ..
