    Can't wait for the pictures, meaganoff!

    I have some preliminary pics - 'during' pics, I guess. I was completely unable to lose even a pound after the first week postpartum, and after two months of eating only real, traditional foods, just one or two servings of properly prepared grains a day with lots of fats & grassfed organic everything, I decided to take out the grains completely and lose all fruits other than berries.

    The first two are Jan '10 & Nov '10. 185 & 156, at 5'4".



    These are July '10 & Nov '10, 170 & 156. By July, my gut was at least no longer pushing my clothes out, but still had a long way to go!


    What I'm loving the most is the change in my face - it's always been heart-shaped, and is going back that way, thankfully! These are 12/09 & 11/10.



    I've lost at least 10" in my waistline, iirc. I feel infinitely better than I did at this weight on the way up, and am fitting into clothes that I wore at 10-15lbs lighter than I was on the way up. There's really no comparison with the way I feel - physically, it's incomparable, and emotionally, much more even keel. I'll never go back, even if I don't lose another inch.

    Looking great Mamagrok!

    Getting rid of grains is one of the easiest ways to start dropping, that's for sure.

    Wowee!!! Lookin' GOOD, MamaGrok! I especially love the side shot in the kiwi-colored top. You look like a completely different person!!

    I can't ever get over how *different* people look after being Primal for a while. Any/Every other weight loss plan, people look exactly the same, just a smaller version of themselves (and oftentimes older, because of eating low fat).

    You know, I FEEL like a completely different person. I mean, core things are the same, but I no longer feel lead-bound to a chair; I want to dress nicely and smile again; I have glimpses of the energy and cheeriness that really used to be a major part of me but I lost without even realizing it, because of ... white powder. sugar. wheat. bleh.

    It is really amazing what a slice of whole grain sourdough bread and tiny bowl of steel-cut oats can do to someone. And what kicking them out can do. I mean, I've struggled; my PB journal tells the tale, but it really was all that simple to get the ball rolling. This was the key that I didn't have with any of my other pregnancies - for the first time since dd#1, I am *below* my pre-pg weight just one year out. *phew!*
