    My introduction - Last 40 = the last 40 pounds I want to loose after gaining 90 lbs after I quit smoking. I lost 50 over the years but have struggled finishing the job. I've followed low carb before, and it worked, but I never had the complete plan like this. 6weeks in and I've lost 15 lbs - so 25 to go.

    Your location: I live in Frankfort IL

    Age: 51

    How Primal are you: Mostly

    Do you consume dairy: No milk or ice cream, very limited amounts of cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Coffee and some ice tea. My coffee consumption is way down though.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: About 7 weeks ago I broke my wrist in a bicycle accident. The medical tech in the emergency room told me about the primal blue print as he wrapped my arm in a temporary cast - I bought the book the next day. If he's reading this - Thank You!

    Favorite exercise: Biking (yes, I'll still do it)

    Favorite Primal food: Roasted Chicken

    Best part about being Primal: Like most, if not all of the food.

    Worst part about being Primal: Having fatigue issues, but reading the forum I decided to add a banana a day and up my carbs some. Also had sticker shock when pricing grass fed beef. I have 5 mouths to feed and its too much.

    Age (If you want): 35

    How Primal are you: Just finished reading Primal Blueprint, so plan on starting tomorrow!

    Do you consume dairy: I plan on keeping my yogurt and cottage cheese.

    Do you drink coffee or tea: Both, but would like to get rid of coffee.

    Motivator for switching to Primal: Need, need, need to lose weight. I've lost all of my drive, motivation, and love of life, due to my weight gain. I want to get healthy and feel full of energy again.

    Favorite exercise: walking and weights

    Favorite Primal food: berries, eggs, avocado

    Best part about being Primal: being able to eat...hate starving myself! I also love trying new recipes, so I'm looking forward to trying recipes without grains.

    Worst part about being Primal: not a huge meat eater, so that will take a little getting used to. Spent a few years dabbling in vegetarian and vegan diets, so I'll have to get used to more meat. I also am worried about dining out, which we do a lot. I feel like I'm going to get really tired of salads.

    Welcome. I'm in Sacramento too. It's a great place to be primal, with all the natural food stores, farmer's markets, bike trail, nearby recreation areas.
