    I see people in the parking garage at work - many of whom are perfectly mobile - who take the elevator *DOWN* three floors. Going down stairs doesn't take much effort, people! Gravity is helping you! It's a controlled fall for crying out loud!

    After starting a leangains paleo approach to leaning out and getting stronger... I'm now benching above my body weight and deadlifting double my weight.

    My complaint? My friends are starting to make fun of me for being a starving abercrombie boy and that I have to "kill myself" to get my look. I have completely stopped talking about anything related to health and fitness with my friends because it just falls on deaf ears. My one other friend has also manged to get pretty ripped...but he is dead set on his bodybuilding.com diet of 150% fat free chicken breast and lettuce. Yes, that was a joke.

    My other complaint -- I walk really fast to get places...and people just generally get in my way and don't know how to yield. seriously, just move over guy.

    In their defense, it may be less of a fitness issue and more of a coordination issue. Pre-primal, I fell down nearly every flight of stairs I went down. Seriously. I have some sort of depth perception/coordination issue or something, I just can't do stairs. I am a little better now, but maybe it's just because I'm careful.

    Primal has caused me to have too many medical tests

    Now that I am not over weight, any health issue I report to my physician is suddenly taken seriously and tests are promptly ordered. All of a sudden I have follow-up tests for things that were dismissed a year ago as nothing. I find it pretty sad how well I am treated as a "normal weight" patient compared to when I was overweight.

    I can't stop gaining muscle, especially in my upper back. Seriously, it sucks.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    It was so sad to see DH's face when a new aquaintance assumed we had a "professor/student relationship" (ie. that DH was much older than me) and we had to admit DH is only a year older, that I had gone back to college so I was a student over the traditional age and DH was a new young professor at the time. (he is sticking to his SAD, while I go primal)

    Sorry, we are going to need to see back view pics so we can judge for ourselves.

    *My frustration... Primal causes nice, formerly well-mannered teachers to post comments like the above.

    I can't stop feeling great. So frustrating when you're trying to blend in with the sad.

    I have to leave all my favorite snacks behind because my meals leave me so satisfied between meals, I don't have room to snack!

    As a formerly well-mannered teacher who would also like to see more male eye candy pics, I sympathize with your frustration.
