    I know what you mean. I was one who rolled my eyes at all the people coming out of the woodwork claiming to be celiac, and pooh-poohed anyone who wanted to "get rid of an entire food group." I had absolutely no idea all the things that would change in my body and in my mind when I kicked grains to the curb.

    We wear company logo'd shirts at work. Today I had to pick up a few size L, because both the XLs and XXLs hanging in the closet are too big! I can't remember the last time I wore a size L... early high school maybe? (I'm 32)

    In early December I spend a few hundred $$ on new jeans and dress clothes. I'm buying 4" smaller waist size pants and they're fitting pretty good, even a little bit loose. At least if I need to "waste" some money, I'd rather spend it on smaller clothes.

    a tiny triumph

    Normally I don't keep clothing that doesn't fit (either too big or too small) because it's just depressing. And my closet is too small. Every once in awhile there is a favorite something I save just in case.

    I re-started primal on Dec 23rd, and today I am happily and *comfortably* wearing some favorite pants that I haven't fit into for more than a year. yay!

    Bless my dear mother. She bought me new dress shirts for my bday and Christmas. I went from wearing 16 32/33 to 14.5 fitted 32/33. Just this week, my wife had me clean out my closet and we donated 20 shirts and 6 pants to charity.

    I just realized that, while I'm not my college or HS weight (one is 10 lb below here I am now, the other is 20), I'm wearing the same size I did in HS and early college and anything I bought in my 3rd and 4th years of college (save my winter coat and a couple peasant blouses) is too big. TAKE THAT, scale!

    In June I was went from 265 to 280 after quitting smoking. Started primal along with IF and set a goal to get to 220 by April '11.
    Weighed in at 218 on 1-1-11 - 4 months early. My blood pressure was the high 140s over the high 80s - with 2 different meds. Now I am med free and keeping it around 110/75. Was diagnosed with type II diabetes and now insulin resistance is also back to normal. 2010 was such a unreal success for me and I owe a lot of it to the primal lifestyle. 6 months 280 to 218 and a 44 inch waist to a 36 (loose - need to go shopping soon)

    I did an experiment Friday and found out exactly how much protein/carbs I can consume so my fasting BG is under 80 the next morning.

    My rubber boots fit better, still snug but not annoying anymore. Wohoo. Should be interesting to see where this is in 5 months. ;-)
