Thanks, Liquid Gusto. Love the name! I would consider myself 90% Primal, my husband is probably 80% Primal (He goes through fazes of strict to very relaxed. He has no weight to lose, but is trying to gain some muscle. He is 6' tall and 165/170 lbs), and my son is probably 50% Primal. We absolutely try to stay away from wheat 100%, but my son will have a cupcake or pretzels at a party and that's fine. I know it's not good for him, but neither is being "that" kid (he already cannot have very much dairy, or he'll get sick). How long have you been Primal, Liquid Gusto?
165.2 lbs. today. I haven't been losing much weight, but the inches are melting away! I've heard/read that weight loss can inch like this. Is this true?
I have to look back to see the overall loss. 4 weeks ago, I was 39-29-39. I think my thighs were 23ish" and my arms were 12". I also weighed 172.2 lbs.
4 weeks loss:
Not bad for four weeks!
I am thrilled with the loss! My skinny jeans felt looser last night. That was a great feeling! I haven't been to the actual gym in 2 weeks, but have been trying to do some strength exercises at home (pull-ups/hanging, planks, and squats).
Mom weighed in today. It's the beginning of her 7th day and she lost 5 lbs. woo hoo! Hopefully, she still wants to keep going. She was happy, but not too excited as this is weight she had just recently lost and then gained back over the last few weeks. She was counting calories and then periodically binging for weeks. I totally get that because I used to do the same thing. Calorie counting with low fat foods is a disaster. You are just hungry all. the. time. With Paleo/Primal and carb counting, if I'm still hungry after I've eaten all my carbs for the day, I know I can still have some eggs or something so that I'm not hungry. I'm never really *that* hungry. I could probably push myself a few minutes past "a little hungry" before I start eating. I will practice that! (Actually, realizing that I've forgotten to eat breakfast. Not bad.) Anyway, Mom is doing great! I can't wait to see her in another week!
47 lbs. and a million inches lost so far. Only 20.2 lbs. more to go to goal weight!

Just keep going.
Get back to 80-90% Primal and back down to my lowest recent weight of 158 lbs. while doing as much moving and strength training as I can get in.
