Oh lordy, am I right there with you. Two years ago when was on a low cal diet, and going to the gym every day, struggling to lose every single ounce, my sister's comment was this, "So, are you actually going to stick with it this time?" That really hurt me. I don't think she realizes how much. So, when I first started primal I played it off as a solution to my gluten intolerance. Which it really was! I didn't expect to be losing this much weight. With the first 25lbs down the fam started to notice, and ask questions. By this time I was so passionate about primal that I started babbling away about it. This was risky for me. I always stall, get frustrated and give up around 20-25lbs mark. But, here I am 42 lbs down and still cookin'. I can almost see the disbelief on their faces. It's a wonderful thing. I hope I didn't come off as preachy in my first post to you. I just don't want people to feel like they can't live their lives because of other people. But, now that you've explained further, I COMPLETELY get it. I was/am in the same boat. Blessings to you, darling.

Woke up exactly the same at 273.4. Whoopie! So, for me, I need to remember that if I am going to eat like I am going to the electric chair, I just need to add some serious heavy lifting, and I'll be good.

By the end of the movie, I felt sick that I had eaten it. It wasn't the turning point for my diet, but it was certainly the beginning of my new life. I try to have everyone watch it now. That and farmageddon.
