    We began eating Paleo/Primal in September of 2011, doing just the bare-bones basics for the first month and kicking it into full-on the following month.
    Yay, your pictures finally got approved! That is an amazing change in just 6 months! Well done

    I decided to snap a photo this morning and then dig up something from December - found a 'before' photo that was taken 3 months ago to the day.

    It's been just over 9 weeks since I began Primal living and I've lost 9 lbs, I feel AH-MAZING and realized that I likely did have a mild gluten intolerance that I never recognized (like most folks here). No more bloating or cramping, I've got constant energy, been cooking ALL the time and just loving the entire journey this decision has taken me on. The Primal Blueprint Cookbooks rock, Nom Nom Paleo is a great cooking site as well, not to mention the hundreds of other cooking blogs I've found.

    The weight is still coming off, but much slower, which is fine. The best part is that the last time I lost a significant amount of weight, I was a competitive triathlete, nearly starving myself, training 15-20 hours/week and miserable. I definitely swam, biked and ran fast, but that was about the only thing I was happy about. To be enjoying "moving slowly, often"; to revel in the bike rides through the vineyards at a mellow pace instead of a breakneck speed where your eyes are only staring at the road - it's just been the most incredible, fantastic thing. I am still working on getting in more 'heavy lifting' into my schedule, but I'll get there.

    I'm just savoring every moment and couldn't be happier that I made this decision. As Mark would say - Grok On!

    Great progress! That's why I like this lifestyle: yes, work is involved, but not as much as conveniently thought. Just do simple switches, then you're gold
