    Love being Primal an it's only been a week!

    I've had so much trouble losing weight, even with all the running I do. First week of Primal has seen me lose 1.6kg. Looking forward to this weeks weigh in.

    That's great!
    However, "even with all the running I do" should change to "because of all the running I do"

    Would you mind clarifying that?

    Also, congrats Soulrunner. I've just recently gone primal myself, and it's an awesome lifestyle change.

    Well done you two, good stuff.
    And welcome of course.
    FTM. I'm not biased, I hope everybody beats the mags!

    Certainly is FallSight. I was finding it hard to shift the "middle aged spread", which I thought was a myth until I experienced it! It's running scared now, should be back in my jeans in no time : ).

    Soulrunner, welcome and congrats on your progress to date.

    "All the running you do" sounds like "chronic cardio", a primal no-no. Better to move around a lot slowly, lift a few heavy things and put in an occasional sprint.

    Are you enjoying your food, I think it's the BEST.

    It takes time to break away from the cardio, especially if you love to run.

    For some reason, even as a non-runner, I love sprinting uphill. I am fortunate enough to have trails within 1/2 hour drive and can dash up a few hills with my dogs, then cruise back to the car at a slower pace. The feeling of happy exhaustion is hard to beat.

    Loving the food! Running is something I enjoy so much and I love to enter events so I'm pretty much training, to some degree, all the time. I do realise that it is chronic cardio and a no-no but don't want to get out of it for now.
    Have now got hubby on the Primal, he is loving the instant results.
