    Went shopping this weekend. Bought two new pairs of jeans because the others were just looking too baggy and threatening to fall down. I've dropped from size 26 to 20 since October. AND...I found a shirt in the clearance section that is a duplicate of one of my favorite shirts that I've been using in my progress photos (I'll eventually post them). It will be fun to continue to use the same shirt...just a smaller size as I continue to shrink.

    My 15 yr old daughter asked me to help her brade her hair this morning and I noticed how much healthier her hair had been lately. It used to break and look horrible at the ends, but it is now growing out nicely.

    Me: "Your hair is looking really healthy, what have you been doing differently"?

    Daughter: "I know - I think it's the food Mom"!

    Me: "Your skin has been really clear lately too"!

    Daughter: "I know - It's so much better"!

    I took the family primal by captive last March (2011). They still eat bread when we go out (rare), but my kids are so much healthier. If you don't buy the crap, they can't eat it at home! More proof that eventually, the family will have to admit this is good for them. This is the real triumph!

    I forgot to post it last night. For shits and giggles, I grabbed Geek's 26 lb dumb bell to see if I could do my one arm rows with it. I did. I strained HARD for the last couple with each arm, but I did it. 10 lb weight, EAT IT!

    Went to a doctors office that I thought was supporting paleo. Mostly because, you know, you have a goddamn book about it on your wall behind the checkin desk.

    Got a mouthful of conventional wisdom, low fat diet bologna that drove me insane!

    Blood pressure? down a few points (128/88) w00t.

    Got on the scale.

    Guess who has two thumbs and lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks?

    This guy.

    F%&^ doctors.

    Edit:

    I even had the audacity to tell him I wasn't going low fat because I finally have my mental issues under control. Still, flak for actually being healthy.

    ^I really just want to ask those doctors what helped my cholesterol/weightloss/insert-applicable-problem-here if the only change made was going Primal? I'll find out next month if my cholesterol is amazing (after being crappy last July right after starting Primal).
