I came to primal because I've had enough of being FAT and unhealthy. I have my farm and I talk about eat what you grow, etc, but I wasn't living it. So, after I figured out I was gluten intolerant, I went searching for a new alternative. I have been primal for now, 22 days. I am enjoying the lifestyle. I still have cravings, some of them very powerful, but they are subsiding. Weight loss isn't as fast as I thought it would be, but I have made the determination that I don't care if it takes two years to take off this 100 pounds. It's going to have to come off because I am no longer eating in a way to support it. So there, take that fat cells.
I struggle with living with my junk freak parents. Mostly my mother. Yesterday, for example all she ate was a bowl of sherbert and a bowl of regular ice cream. Today, she asked me to bring home cream horns from my bakery job. Honestly? I lied. I told her we didn't have them. I don't want to be an enabler.
I am struggling with fixing, literally, my entire life of bad, bad eating. I was raised that way. It is etched into my very being, and, with primal, I am attempting to fill those etch marks.
The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.
