Well, hello. I'm hoping this I'll have some successes to share with you all this time next year. I was 217 lbs. last June. Got down to 187 with some unhealthy habits/weight watchers goose-chasing. Went up to 207. Currently around 195 after starting primal last week. I messed up today, but I've signed up for a forum to reinforce that a setback will not hold me back. So on and so forth.
Your location: Pittsburgh
Age (If you want): 26 (I have always been heavy. I have no idea what it's like to feel comfortable in my skin.
How Primal are you: Just started last Tuesday. I was going full-tilt and feeling awesome until I had a moment after work today where I thought that I might as well give up. No idea where that came from. :\ I ate some potato chips and soda.
Do you consume dairy: Kefir and cheese. Milk occasionally.
Do you drink coffee or tea: Tea. Coffee occasionally
Motivator for switching to Primal: Diabetes runs in my family, and I really would like to lose weight.
Favorite exercise: Walking long distances, jogging, and sprinting.
Favorite Primal food: Not sure yet. I'm still learning and looking forward to getting the cookbooks.
Best part about being Primal: It feels like cheating that I can have eggs and sausage fried in butter, or nigh unlimited (or at least limited by my appetite) rich guacamole.
Worst part about being Primal: Pizza and ice cream. I could probably do without most other things.
5'5 SW: 205 CW: 182.6 GW: 140? Is that even possible?
