    Means a lot you two popped back in

    All summer (3 months) I was back at my parents place for my summer job. (My summer job is in my hometown so I stay with parents)

    Tried my best to stay primal but honestly it was more 60/40 than 80/20 hahaha. It's difficult being in someone elses house, eating someone elses groceries, and just not having a routine. Also, all of my friends are in my hometown in summer time so there was a lot of socialising, a lot of 21sts (including my own! ) and basically a lot of eating out. I could make a million excuses but it is what it is.

    After the first month, when it became apparent my weight loss was not going to continue, I figured I may as well put the extra calories to use. Almost every weekend in summer I went on a big hike. Some amaaaaazing places in NZ, really don't get to see enough of them. I also, surprisingly, have become fond of powerlifting! 3-5x a week I have been up in the gym workin on my strength. My summer basically turned into a strength gaining period. I think I made the best of the situation, given I was eating excess calories either way.

    Anyway, as of 4 days ago I am back in my own place, back to primal 80/20 (actually more like 90/10), and back into weight loss mode.

    The strength training all summer has had a wonderful effect on my body and my baby muscles aren't so baby any more. I'll list my PRs here because this is a great way to keep records (Reading back over this journal is highly entertaining)
    Squat: 90kg/198lb for one rep
    Deadlift: 95kg/209lb for 6 reps
    Bench: 40kg/88lb for 5 reps

    The best thing I have gained is a whole new view on things. am really not caught up on weight like I was and it's a wonderful relief. These past 4 days of primal have been so enjoyable. The good news is, I didn't even gain any weight over summer! Maybe 2lb, but it could be water, I don't even know.

    So I'm happy! Ready to continue lowering my bodyfat, gaining health, and continuing on this new journey with powerlifting!
    Current weight lost: 82.9lb (37.6kg)

    Current PRs:
    Bench: 45kg/99lb
    Squat: 100kg/220lb
    Deadlift: 120kg/265lb

    Time for some progress piiiiiiiics. I don't feel like a lot has changed in a really obvious way but then something is different too. I think it's hard to see because my overall SIZE is the same, given my weight has stayed around the same, but my shape has changed because of the lifting.

    This is why they call me thunder thighs muahaha.

    You're cool! I actually have a very similar story to you, so it was an interesting read to find all the parallels. Keep up the awesome work losing fat and lifting heavy!

    This post confuses me... I have never posted lifting numbers before so how do you know I improved haha? Maybe this is a computer

    Oooh, where can I read your story? Is it documented right from the start in your journal?
