    Women who have lost over 100 lbs.

    Primal Fuel
    Are there any women on here who have lost over 100 lbs? I see the success stories of men and of women who have lost less than 100 but wanted to hear about the journey of any women who have lost more than 100lb. I have a lot to lose and just want some inspiration. Starting primal today.

    I've lost close to 80 lbs, so I'm getting there! I was in a car accident this fall, and it's really thrown me for a loop, so I suspect I've gained a few lbs back but not much. I'm wearing clothes I never thought I'd fit into again, and they still fit. I think it just takes longer with us, and women tend to not recognize or promote ourselves and our successes like the guys do, esp if we were very overweight. I rely on friends to tell me that I look like I've lost weight, because I can't mentally recognize it, even after losing so much. I still have a ways to go too.

    As you can see from my sig, I'm not quite there either, but now that the holidays are over (and I survived them without gaining weight or 'falling off the wagon') I'm really looking forward to the next 50-60 lbs gone! As soon as I get to that mark, I might even get brave enough to post some pics.

    I know it IS possible, so jump right in and enjoy this new way of living! The best thing is how effortless it has become... because you don't feel deprived or stressed over counting calories, weighing food or eating out of a box. Just learn the very basic precepts of PB, pay attention to what works for you and Grok on!

    Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

    I am close. I had lost the first 40 pounds or so before I was introduced to the paleo/primal approach. It was a painful process. Most importantly, I was less and less heavy but certainly not more and more healthy. If I had known this website, it would have been much easier and faster.

    It can be done - do not hesitate and start as soon as you can.

    I've lost 141 pounds total but 120 of that was from having a gastric bypass. The last 21 have been because of the PB. I have another 19 to go. My goal is 140. I started the entire journey at 300.

    I've got about 110lbs to take off. I've taken off about 20 so far and still have a long ways to go. I started at 255lbs at 5' 5". I've got plans to go backpacking and kayaking when I get enough off that I can do it and have fun and keep up. I'm hoping to get under 200 by Mayish-Junish. I'm dealing with type II diabetes, hypothyroid and asthma(had that all my life), none of them are helpful when trying to lose weight. Our first camping trip of the year is in April. Hubby has about 160lbs to take off and has lost about 30lbs. (yeah he had 190lbs to lose, he was 390lbs).

    My mission of the day is to go out and play with my 4 year old son in our first snow of the year.

    Congratulations! I see from your BMI that you're very close to losing that 'obese' label.

    I've lost 33 lbs so far (the last 19 or so on primal).

    I'm aiming for a total loss of at least 50 lbs, by the end of September this year.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    Farfalla - way to go! I dream of 100lb loss. I have never lost more than 20. I am confident if I just keep plugging away with the Primal lifestyle I will get there eventually!

    Congratulations!
