    Also had to ditch some more blouses.

    Primal is getting expensive.
    Yeah, same here. I wasn't even trying to lose weight - I am perfectly satisfied with my size, and don't even own a scale; I was going Primal for health reasons. And now all my jeans are falling off of me, and I have to go buy new jeans before I lose my pants in public. That's three pairs of jeans that I can no longer wear. Never mind all the expensive lawyer suits I now have to go get tailored so I don't lose my pants in court.

    Yup, Primal is expensive.

    Back when I was dirt poor, I used to go to all the best neighborhoods on trash day and pick up the most awesome stuff. Furniture and whatnot.

    I share a small apartment with two other students and our fridge is very small. When I ate lots of pasta, rice, and take-out I had plenty of places to store non-fridge related food. Now everything I buy is going into the fridge or freezer. I need to make trips to the store or farmer's market 3+ times a week! I am a full-time student and I work 5 days a week. Cooking usually involves a trip to the store, prep, cooking, eating, and washing dishes which can take close to two hours when all is said and done.

    I have actually managed very well, and I do enjoy taking time out of my day to shop for different vegetables and cook different meals. But when it gets to be midterms or finals (or when I'm a little lazy) it can get challenging. I have largely cut out social life except for girlfriend related excursions, but luckily I get plenty of social interaction as a bartender.

    I have a cold. I used to get them ALL the time. I haven't had one in well over a year since being primal.

    I have NO tolerance for them anymore! I'm so annoyed with feeling crappy. It's my fault, I cut way back on my vitamin D3 and now I am paying the price.

    Primal made me a wimp
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    ...Waiting for work-sponsored biometrics results.

    We did the testing on the 2nd and still don't have the results back. I DO know that my BP was 120/78, I've lost 6" off my waist and 10" from my hips, but I'm REALLY interested in the lipid panel and A-1C results.......

    They called me the very next day last year because my results were so horrible that I'm sure they thought I was gonna drop dead any moment -- (which I'll give 'em because my BP was 138/92, my A-1C was 7.1 and my BMI was over 45!!)
    Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
    Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

    OK, I'm feeling ignorant...what's A-1C? And wow, glad your results are so much better! (I'm usually pleased when my BP is in the 130s, siiigh...)

    70 is the new 50--without the hot flashes!

    Goals: Feel good, be stronger, and hopefully kick that arthritis in the backside! Oh, yeah, and losing more weight would be okay, too.

    I have one! Since losing all this weight, the customer service rep at kohls thinks I'm a lunatic because I keep returning clothing! I buy clothes then 2 weeks later they are too effing small! And I didn't even get to wear them! I have been back so much she knows me now lol. I think I may have turned her on to primal though haha. That's why I shop at kohls though, they have a no questions asked insurance policy so they take anything back thank goodness.

    I've found a great dress shirt at Zara.

    Hemoglobin A-1C is a measure of blood sugar that tells the "real" story of how you've been doing over the last 2-3 months...that way you can't 'cheat' for a day or so before the test! They still check regular blood sugar, though it's becoming rarer at clinics because most folks who need to check theirs on a regular basis have a home glucometer.

    Sigh...still no results!
