Hi All - I started going primal at the beginning of January. Overall, I have been amazed with the results. I have lost 9 lbs and can tell a big difference in my body, I'm NEVER hungry, and I have much more energy. I'm really trying to view this as a lifestyle change rather than a diet.

I'm hoping to use this journal as a place to hold myself accountable and share my experience with others.

So with that in mind, I have to confess!! Yesterday was my birthday, and I definitely fell off the wagon. I enjoyed cheesecake and several beers (we were bowling...). THEN, this morning for breakfast I ordered pancakes and stole a cookie from my daughter. It's so easy for you to allow a cheat and let that roll into other things, and I'm feeling SO guilty about it. And now my stomach hurts, and I feel so lousy.

But I'm officially getting back on track here and have made chicken tortilla soup for dinner (w/o tortilals of course!). Looking forward to getting back in ketosis and feeling better!!
