Through various periods of off and on primal eating I've lost 15 lbs since May 29, 2012. There are serious chunks of time where I completely abandoned the lifestyle and went back to my old ways which is why I still stand at only 15 lbs down. At one point I had gone from 275 lbs down to 249 lbs, but for whatever reason started shoving bread in my face again.

15 lbs in 6 months is not going to cut it anymore. I need to adopt the Primal way of eating as a permanent lifestyle change, because, well, it makes complete sense to me. I actually agree with the science behind it and know how I feel while I am doing it. So there it is, back on Primal.

I find myself at 260 lbs this morning and will consider today my new Day 1. A fresh start. A clean slate. Time to cut out the grains, dairy, and processed foods. No more diet soda for this guy.

I'm about 1/3 the way through reading "The Primal Blueprint" by Mark Sisson and plan on finishing it sometime this week. I want to make sure I understand completely what I should be doing, although I think I have a pretty good understanding.

I hope to post daily here in my primal journal throughout my journey.

Day 1 - January 15, 2013

Today’s Weight – 260 lbs

Breakfast – 3 eggs & a Banana.

Lunch – Big Ass Salad w/ Oil & Balsamic Vinegar Dressing.

Dinner – Steak with a side of frozen veggies. 2 light yogurts.

Snacks – Banana & 1 mini chocolate frosted donut (oops).

I had a momentary freak-out panic attack where I needed sugar so I gobbled down one of my son’s mini chocolate donuts. Felt guilty afterwards but all in all it was a pretty damn good day. I did some run/walk intervals on the treadmill as well for around 15 minutes.

I can improve on some things but overall am pretty pleased with day one. Only 75 more pounds to lose!
