I just HATE eating a tender, delicious, perfectly seasoned ribeye once a week. It really gets me down ;(
Cha-cha-cha changes.... turn and face the strange...
My journal - http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread66276.html
All time high weight 262 lbs
Primal since Spring 2012
Start PB Weight: 240 lbs ish
Current Weight: 220lbs ish
Goal Weight:190-200 lbs
All on a 6ft. 1/2 inch frame.
I can't wait to meet my abs for the first time in my life. We gotta lot of catching up to do.
I love this way of eating and hope to be able to help others.
Frustration - my new size 6(UK/AUS) office dress is getting a little tight in the traps area. Maybe I should go back to the barbie weights?...
The Paleo Strongwoman - A site dedicated to strength, and feeding strength.
It's the gambling that is getting to me, like 2 weeks ago in Macy's...”Should I buy the Large pants that are a little baggy or the pretty tight Mediums for our Italy trip in November...?” Bought the medium size.
This morning: had to move the waistband buttons in because they weren't tight enough. Will they fit in 5 weeks?!
I've only lost about 3 pounds since starting primal (with some dairy) a few weeks ago and am seriously bummed that I didn't take any "before" measurements. Because it only took about 2 weeks before my waist stopped puffing out (my post-menopausal doom? Not!) and started curving back in, then my thighs stopped hitting each other. The other odd thing is that my normally piano-wire-tight hamstrings loosened up by themselves. Thank you, bone broths!
Yeah, the real bugger, too, is how ridiculously nearly instantaneous things are.
for example, if I have a bit of off primal stuff or a heavier (refeeding?) day, there's no change. Do that for several weeks, get a bit pudgy. Stop that, and 6 days later your'e back to normal.
after 2 months the new suit jacket (with a slim designation) is too big around the middle, what do we do to find a suit jacket?

SW 212 CW 200 GW don't really care
Goal 12+ pullups per set, current 10
OK, I have HUGE sadness and frustration right now.... probably partly my own fault.... I said I was only going to weigh myself once a week... but here ya go:
On day 8, I got on the scale and saw I had dropped 12 - 13 pounds! I was insanely happy. I have NOT cheated. Now, 5 days later I stepped on the scale, even though I said I wouldn't, and I was only down 5 pounds. Now, I have been doing MINOR exercise to start getting back in shape, but not much... very light lifting, and some aerobics.... maybe 90 minutes a week.
Start Date 9.24.12
Starting weight 285ish ( scale is acting funny so I don't trust it, but 285 is close )
CW - 271 pounds
First Goal - 255 by 2013
Main Goal - To be healthy for my family... I have an awesome family.
Other Goal - to get off some medications
Final goal - to get to about 180 pounds by 2014
NEW GOAL - When I can start a new journal called "Your dad is not so fat!"
Your Dad is So Fat
Hi Primal Papa, in the first week, a lot of what you've lost is water, from the bloat in your digestive system and the extra glycogen your body was storing in your muscles. It's very, very normal to drop a lot within those first few days.
2nd, 5 lbs seems more normal and actually very good progress for a week! Congrats!! Eventually this might taper off for you, most of us actually stall for a week or two, then drop 3-5 lbs over night. This is very common. It's why many people say, throw away the scale and break out the tape measurer. Have you taken measurements yet? For myself, I've often found that when I stall, most times, I'm shrinking, and my pants fit looser.
Frustration: I bought a ticket to the Marine Ball this year, and I don't know whether to buy a dress now, and guestimate as to what size I'll be a month from now, or if I should just wait and try to find something at the last minute. Sometimes losing weight quickly sucks! :P
