Day 1, my Primal Journey
I discovered Mark Sisson's philosophy about 4 months ago through an article on intermittent fasting. After reading The Primal Blueprint, everything made so much sense. Unfortunately, my new pasta maker, 2 young boys, a reluctant husband and general lack of self discipline led to my inconsistency. Today, at my highest weight (excluding pregnancies, where I stopped looking at the scale at a certain point) 166.8 at 5.75 height I think I may have reached my "tipping point". Feeling rotund and unattractive, I hope to adhere to this new lifestyle. Recently I realized that in my thinner days, I was always "skinny fat". Now I am doing BodyPump to increase muscle mass; walking my dog and playing with my kids. So hard to tell them that the "healthy" wheat bread and sugared yogurt I've been feeding them isn't actually healthy. One son really shows the ill effects of SAD and the other has a super metabolism so can live on carbs (they are 11 and 8 y.o.) and have a lean body. Anyhow, here I am, on this journey, hoping to arrive at a healthy place and eventually help others arrive as well.
