    Today's my birthday, so it's a great day for some success!

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Alright, so, basically, I started Primal on September 1st, and, I've really become a believer.

    I've lost 23lbs sofar (Not since September 1st, but since my highest weight, of 275) and a pretty healthy chunk of that has been on Primal. I love feeling how I feel every morning.

    My SO (Not exactly supportive...don't ask..) said that he's noticing that I'm starting to lose weight, and I've started to have to wear a belt on my favorite pair of shorts. So, that's always a bonus.

    I make all my own food, I set up food in my refrigerator for my needs, and I try to make it a lot of fun.

    Anyway, I'm not all that much changed, but:



    And now:



    I look a little thinner, at least I think so. And that's just seventeen days!

    So, happy 14th 17th birthday!! (I'm 31, but I swear I've turned 17 14 times!)
    Down from 275 to 250!

    Happy birthday and congratulations!

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

    Congrats on the weight loss, and happy birthday! Is it just the pic, or has your skin cleared up a lot too?

    Thank you all, it was stellar! I made a primal cake, had an awesome Taco Salad (Like, it was HYUGE!) out of my first pound of Grass Fed Beef, with raspberries and cream for dessert! Was AMAZING!!

    It's not just the pic! I've actually got the ABSOLUTE WORST CASE of "Chicken Skin" (Keratosis Pilaris) I've ever seen, I'm COVERED in it.

    But 18 days Primal, and it's clearing up. The hairs on my arms aren't kinked anymore, and the red rash looking skin is fading. Even my CW husband was like "Wow...you're doing something right!"

    I've never seen myself without my KP. It's going to be AMAZING when I can show off my arms without people thinking I'm contagious!

    I try to keep the contagions to my infectious smile!

    @Scotty-

    Happy birthday!! I hope it was awesome for you!! It was totally awesome for me!

    Happy birthday! You definitely can tell you have lost weight, especially around your eyes and neck. Your smile is Beautiful.

    My KP is almost gone. It had moved from upper arms, to lower arms and legs, to lower abdomen. I had it for like 20 years and had tried everything!

    Thanks! DarkMistress!

    Aww, thank you! I'm happy about my smile, it looks so...happy! I don't normally cheese so big, but...Now I totally do!

    Yeah, I've got KP down to my wrists, and my knees, all down my back, along my sides, and on my chest and belly. Pretty much everywhere but the palms of my hands, and the soles of my feet! I've tried everything, every soap, cream, detergent... And, Primal's the only thing that has even begun to make it look better. It's almost GONE on my lower left arm, and I don't feel like a gila monster anymore to the touch!

    I was always fairly self concious of it, and tended to pick at it like mad, or wear long sleeves, and I was knitting myself some elbow length gloves to cover it... I guess I can sell those on Etsy now!! ^_^
