When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

"You know, if you're trying to lose weight, you shouldn't eat apples at night because they turn into sugar in your body."
And then, at physical therapy, one of the overweight patients on the treadmill, "I need to burn the extra calories I didn't get on Monday. Just ten more calories, ten more *runs faster* Yes! Got them."
OK! The first one would be CW, or vegetarianism anyway. My sister and her family are here to stay with us and I always ask what the stuff they're eating is made of, on the off chance that I can eat it. Today she was feeding her son something that looked like a sausage. I wasn't even going to ask because I knew but she brought it up first. The conversation went something like this.
Her: It's soy, you don't want it.
Me: I'd guessed. Did you know soy started as an industrial byproduct?
Her: Did you know that meat started as a baby cow?
Me: Yes. That's why I love it so much.
And another exchange that was more congenial...
Me: *looking at the ingredients on a bottle of Coffee Mate* Hydrogenated canola oil... ugh, trans fats...
Her: I know! It's dads, I don't know why he won't bring skim milk camping. We should just throw it out.
Me: ...We should! *tosses it in the trash* If he asks where it is we don't know.
Her: Sure thing.
We're on the same page about trans fats. XD
Not completely a CW moment, but definitely a Primal win. Getting an ultrasound done today (for various reasons), Technician: "No wonder you said you can feel everything in there. You are skinnier than just about every person I see come through."
Me: "Well I lost about thirty pounds two years ago."
Technician: "Oh? How? Exercising your brains out?"
Me: "Nope. Eating well."
Technician: "Even better!" Good medical pros know that abs are made in the kitchen.
~All luck is earned in the end.~
