    Hi from the Blue ridge of Virginia

    Primal Fuel
    Awesome day here in the Blue Ridge, just wanted to introduce myself to you folks. The call me "preacher" the name is two fold, first its what I do, I'm a pastor and second it's the name of the lead character in a series of books which I enjoy written about a mountain man. Loving living in the outdoors as I do it seemed fitting. My wife and I are a "primal b" couple we came onboard after she was researching ways for her to curb her blood sugar issues and help me control MS. We have been "primal" now for about a month and her blood sugars have gone to normal and I have had no issues with the MS even in the extreme heat this summer. We hike weekly and I love being able to be back in nature. Prior to choosing to become a "primal couple" we both had lost significant weight between 2006 and JUne 2012 she lost 132 and I lost 102. However we didn't feel well. Just goes to show you that weight loss in itself doesn't mean you feel good. We were'nt healthier, just lighter. Since going primal we feel awesome. I love it, primal has helped me stablize my weight and helped me build endurance, stamina and a holistic self awareness. My wife still is having some carb effects, her weight isn't coming off as fast as she would like (she wants to drop another 20lbs), but it will.

    Hi from central Virginia. Love the Blue Ridge...you're fortunate to live there.

    You two have made tremendous progress; congratulations. I think you're on the right track for feeling well. My foray into primal made a huge difference in how I feel, and I'm sure yours will too.
    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

    Nie to meet you Mike in Virginia, yes we love living within walking distance of the Blue Ridge. We're "adapting and overcoming" as my DI's in the basic used to scream at us . If my wife can break through her current weight loss stand still I know she will be even more estatic. It WILL happen !!!! I hope she gives it time to. She has 20 more pounds she would like to drop. We think she is still turning from carb burner to fat burner. She has always been very grain carb sensitive. Eat a bowl of pasta and litterly gain 3 lbs a day later. All I know is she looks great and is starting to feel so much better. For me the transformation has been quicker, which isnt all that fair, but my weight loss was easier too. Any suggestions from a pro like you would be awesome. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Hi again Preacher. Have to tell you that I'm really not a pro. Many people on here know far more than I do. I do wish you and your wife the best, and I'm happy to meet you.
    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

    We are still looking for a good place, we tend to eat what we can get locally here which more times than not is just what is at Walmart, Food Lion and Kroger. We are going to head down to a grass fed and finished farm in NC and stock the freezer in the near future.
