    Hi from London...

    I'm a 42 year old woman from London. I started my non carb diet (after reading 'Why we get fat')about 2 months ago and got rid of 5 kg. Two weeks ago I stumbled upon Mark Sisson's website and I was pretty much convinced then and there and have since been on a journey to go Primal...so far so good but not sure I'm happy with weight loss...I was expecting it to be faster...My guess is I have to be patient and wait...

    Hoping to learn lots here,
    Ines

    that's about what is been for me. note as others have said that the PB is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. Go out and walk under the sun or the stars. Feel grass under your feet. Eat, sleep, play. Grok on.

    Hi from Lancashire (sunny at the moment).. I started on my lifestyle change 4 and 1/4 months ago and i'm loving every minute of it. I started out at around the 17 stone 6 region, within 8 weeks i'd dropped to 15 stone (34lb's or 15kg's). I had no intention on weighing myself but a friend asked me how i was doing and as he'd been following weight watchers he was keen to find out my results and the only comparison was weight. Neddless to says he wasn't that impressed with weight watchers results by the time i'd told him what i weighted.
    Anyway i havn't bothered to weigh myself since and probably won't, i just see how i'm looking in the mirror and thats only when i can be bothered.
    Lets face it the weight thing can wait, it will happen in its own time i'm just happy to be able to go out and play and run around after my dogs (2 x Dalmatians) and then run around after the kids (x 3).

    How much have you lost over what period of time?

    But generally its a slow process. Remember its a lifestyle though, you should also notice a great increase in your health and vitality which for me would be enough even if my fatloss was slow coming. In other words there are many other good things that come from primal eating than weight change albeit a nice part of it.

    Welcome to the club. Primal isn't a diet so try not to think about it like that. It's a long term life change. Weight watching is a part of the problem imho as it kind of sets people up to fail and can have some negative psycholgical effects. Have you started doing any exercise as that is really good for making you feel good and look good?

    yes i am exercising, three times a week average...I'm seriously thinking of trying the primal fitness program...I've got as far as printing out the four moves so next just start on level 1 and work on the progression...
    I can see what you mean about the scales watching...it drives me mad and like this week looks like the scales are not on my favour and I don't know why and then I start to question everything and selfdoubt creeps in and then why bother....
    thanks for your encouriging word...
