Shawn, you are 32. Good time to start making some changes. With your background and skill, you have the opportunity to turn your own fortune around, and help get others fit and healthy.
What I find somewhat disconcerting is the number of "keeners" who jump on the wagon, and by day two are 'cheating' with ice cream and chocolate and pasta" and blah blah blah. I start to read those postings, and then my eyes glaze over, and click the back button.
Put pen to paper and make some solid goals for yourself. You found the Primal lifestyle, so now embrace it, and start your way on a new path. No excuses --- no lamenting. If I read one single word in your postings of 'cheating' or "I'm too weak to avoid chocolate or beer --- I will promptly hit my back button, and ensure you don't come up on my computer again.
I'm here to surround myself with positive 'do'ers' and those who are willing to do what it takes to make the changes that are so worth it -- for good health, and happiness and peace.
No excuses on your part and you have my total support.
