Motivator for switching to Primaln October 14th I woke up with a crazy stomach ache, ened up having emergency gallbladder surgery. While in pre op, the Anesthesiologist gave me a good 10 minute talking to about my weight, and mentioned that he had lost 50 lbs going primal... When I was discharged the PA also mentioned primal as a way to lose weight... I am thinking that the whole Gallbladder ordeal was one of those "God Winks" that happen in our lives!
Favorite exercise: Upper Body lifting heavy things
Favorite Primal food: Venison, and Beef Liver
Best part about being Primal: Consistent energy, and the fact that my clothes are fitting better
Worst part about being Primal: I spent time hunting with my father and brother in law this past weekend, we did takeout both nights, they were not understanding when I told them "you pick the restaurant, and I will find something to eat" they just didn't understand that I can find something, or ask for a special request from anywhere... Hopefully with time they will begin to understand
Progress: So far since 10-16-12 I am down about 13 lbs... I have a looooonnnnngggg way to go, but for now it seems to be working. My biggest problem is SCALE watching.... I need to throw the damn thing out, but I have my first physical in many years in a month, and I want to make sure I am tracking along!!
Welcome. Good luck with primal!
