    I started Primal about a month ago, with a few cheats here and there. Also, I'm not really exercising per se, but I do chase my 14 month old son around, and I work as a CNA on the weekends.

    My triumph so far:

    I've lost 6 lbs on the scale, and I've gone from wearing an extra large scrub set, to wearing a large scrub set. I hope some day to be able to fit into a small scrub set.

    Where are you Griff? Have you ever come back to your journal?

    Hope you are doing well.

    I've eaten and lifted my way up to a whopping 152.2 lbs as of this morning. I got on the Tanita scale and it said 13% body fat (I'm more like 15% based on my own far more scientific method of calculating these things). And all my suit pants still fit, it's my shirts that are getting tight (in the neck/shoulders/chest area, not the belly). Nice!

    Primal about 8 weeks now and feeling great. Down about 9# and 2 inches in the waist. But the best news:

    Cholesterol: 186
    Triglyceride: 117
    HDL: 59
    Chol., non-HDL: 127
    LDL: 104

    Compared to my last physical about 35 months ago:

    Cholesterol: 195
    Triglyceride: 185
    HDL: 50
    Chol., non-HDL 145
    LDL 108

    Obviously, my 2010 numbers weren't too scary but I was hoping they'd move in the right directions after going Primal. They did and I'm very happy about it! I hadn't realized it'd been so long since my last physical. FYI, I'm 53 and male.

    It's now shorts weather in my neck of the woods, and I'm finding that I can comfortably squeeze myself into size 32 shorts.


    A year ago I was still wearing size 40s (probably could've gone down to 38), and the summer before that I was only able to fit 42s and 44s.

    I discovered that I can do American swings with 18 kg kettlebells now... Me trying Primal more or less coincided with me switching gyms, so I can't tell which is responsible (probably both together). I can't believe how light the 14's are, and those used to be hard. Go me.

    My first triumph:

    Cleaning out the closet, and came upon a box of old jeans and such. To my surprise, I was able to squeeze into my Junior's size 3 skinny jeans that I haven't fit into since 18!

    I never got rid of all those pants because I thought "someday I'll fit them again..." Of course I never thought that would actually happen, and though I have only lost a few pounds, it seems as though that's all it took to go down a pants size.

    Now, to shave the rest of that 'muffin top' off.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
    F/23/5'9"

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

    Same thing here! Pulled out the summer clothes to find the ones from last summer too big; BUT, the box containing stuff that "I might one day fit into again" FIT!! Such a great feeling!

    2nd triumph.Walked into the gym this morning and lady at front desk said "Pretty soon we won't recognize you with the way you are shrinking" Made my day
