    I actually avoided temptation today in the form of croissants from the new bakery down at the corner.

    That is truly a triumph for me.

    I too would love to hear how Griff is doing 3 years on!

    I have been primal for just under 3 months and when I started I weighed 210 (at 5-7) and wore a 36 pant if I am honest with myself. The other day I bought my first pair of 33s in over 10 years and the weight keeps falling off. Some friends said recently they never thought I was fat before but cannot believe how I look now. I just hit 181 and know I will cross the 30lb mark very soon!

    Sadly over the years people badgered griff and he has left the forums. There was a long thread "health not weight" where people were cruel to him because his goals were to become healthy not loose all the weight. It is sad even as a member of the vlc camp (diabetic) he was an asset to the forum highly involved (cholesterol primer) and an inspiration to the very overweight.

    He is missed

    Still reducing while not on HCG.

    I have had a theory that once a person crosses a line of weight that the chemistry begins to favor storage no matter what is done

    to me HCG was a way to pull the plug, but my goal has always been to be able to reduce using my own metabolic engine. I cross my fingers hoping that this continues, my theory may be bunk, but even so it sees to be working

    So you aren't at or under 500 calories anymore? From what I recall you were eating less than that, right? If you're now eating more and still reducing, that's just FABULOUS!!

    Went clothes shopping tonight, bought all new jeans. All size 32, they fit comfy, with a belt. One year ago my 38's were tight.

    Went over a friends house for dinner last night who has got vegetarian to drop weight.....He took one look at me and started asking about my diet, and ate meat that night, while minimizing carbs.

    I am not at my goal yet, far from it, but it's nice to both have my weight loss and health gains be noticed and inspire someone away from what I consider a wrong and unhealthy path and onto primal style eating.

    Awesome, everyone.

    I just wanted to share that it's been exactly 1 month since I went primal and I have lost 7.5 pounds and went from wearing my size 16 jeans to my size 14 jeans.
