Hullo, and hope you're well.
It's not really important whether you lose weight as such. The point is to lose fat and not muscle. On this diet people tend to lose fat (but not muscle) and never feel hungry. That might not be universal, but it's a fairly commonly reported. Best to get a good handle on exactly how it's supposed to be implemented.
I suggest to have a look through the Primal 101 guide:

Already working for you, then. Great!I am able to feel comfortable and not super hungry all the time.
You'll probably want to see what cancer researchers are saying here then -- basically that sugar feeds cancers:I am reading and reading as I do want to be comfortable with what I am doing. I do not feel that I have time to play with this. I am 63 and while my blood pressure and cholesterol are always good, I have already played the cancer game once and I do not want to do that again.

The other thing that there's a big interest in in this community is sleep -- long and in proper darkness. See what the Caveman Doctor, who is an oncologist himself, says on this topic:

If these are your concerns as well as weight, then you've come to the right place.
Sorry, I don't know Houston, and I'm not U.S.-based. I believe a lot of people in the U.S. use U.S. Wellness meats. There's also some guy selling dried meat sticks that are from grass-fed animals and additive-free that advertises on Jimmy Moore's show. He's trading under the name Nick's Sticks.I am curious about the food suppliers. Where do people feel really comfortable getting their meat snacks such as jerky and etc from? I buy most of my meat at Whole Foods but I would really like to find a private party to buy meat from here in the Houston area. Anyway, sorry this post is so long and I look forward to getting to know people.

Or trying googling under "paleo houston". I tried that and found this site:
paleo | Real Food Houston
Maybe you can find some information there. Or perhaps start a thread on the "Nutrition" board entitled something like "Meat Sources in Houston".
