    100 down!

    Primal Fuel
    I like to hang out around a milestone for a while and get used to the view before I say anything. So I've actually been at my first BIG milestone for a couple of weeks now. It's been about a year for me gluten-free, and about 8 months on Paleo/Primal. As of first week in December, I've lost 100 lbs!

    I thought this would be a good time to post about it, because there seem to be a lot of unhappy posts about the Primal lifestyle on the forums lately. I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus of those for whom this is working. I have a long way to go yet - I have more to lose than I've already lost, actually. But I have utter confidence that I'll get there. I feel so much better eating this way - real, nutritious food that doesn't send my blood sugar out of whack or trigger wild cravings, food that I'm in control of (rather than the other way around!) I've seen my autoimmune symptoms lessen, and gone of medications (or vastly reduced them). My blood sugar has gone from pre-diabetic levels to normal. My cholesterol levels have gone up where they needed to and down where they needed to, and my triglycerides have been cut in half. I have spent vast amounts of money on new clothes since the old ones basically fell off me. I hear compliments about my weight loss every day. And the compliments have also become questions - people notice that I've lost a huge amount of weight and want to know how I did it. I tell them as simply as I can, and point them here.

    For reference, Before:

    After:

    Hopefully, I'll be back in this thread a year from now, posting the same post, with different pictures.

    Congratulations! I can't imagine losing that much weight. I have been so impatient losing the 45 I need to lose (down 32 of it!)..

    You are AWESOME!!!!

    I think a lot of those whiney "It's not working" posts really are from people that have medical problems beyond what a bunch of folks on the internet should be tinkering with like missing a gallbladder or thyroid dysfunction. Or else they are from people who are half heartedly playing at Primal but abusing the "80/20 rule" to be more like 50/50 then complaining that it "isn't working".

    You sound like you have really committed to making this work. And it is.

    Congratulations Merryish! Outstanding that you have lost 100 lbs, I picked up two 50lb DBs today at the gym and reflected on how much weight that actually was, very impressive to say the least. I am amazed by those saying they are not losing weight or that the Paleo lifestyle does not work for them, because my personal experience and those that I have encouraged to embrace a Paleo lifestyle have had amazing results. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a successful and healthy New Year!

    Actually, many of the "failure" threads lately are from anorexics who want to go full skeletor and can't.

    Awesome! -100 is my goal as well and I'm 55 of the way there. Like you, I just want to join the chorus and have complete confidence that I'll get there on the primal path.
