    Feeling fatter around mid-section

    Primal Fuel
    Since starting to eat primal I feel and look fatter around my middle. Anyone else experience that?

    As I lose weight I can feel my belly feeling softer and looser, but there is less of it. I think it is the loss of fat cells, but my skin not retracting as fast as my loss. I would be interested in hearing what others say.

    Interesting you say that... I've been losing weight lately, and though my belly is still there, it's very soft, I can pinch it. Is this a good sign?

    I feel the opposite. Less bloated and my stomach feels like it is shrinking.

    My waist and belly was/is pretty small. So I didn't have a lot there before. I carry my weight in my butt/thighs.

    Could it be that everything around your stomach is shrinking making it look that way? I know the first month of PB I lost like 4lbs and ALL of it was in my hips...but in the last 2 more months its evened itself out much nicer and more proportioned.
    The pain of discipline or the pain of regret? You choose.

    Oh look - I made a Journal.

    If you lay on your back and do a half-assed crunch, can you feel the fat and skin as separate from the muscle underneath?
    Or are we talkin' gassy bloat?

    eating primal filled out my core and abs after vegetariansism deflated me. This gave me the impression I was fatter because my belly fat was now resting on a more solid core.

    So the loose, soft stuff we're grabbing is fat, right? And if the fat starts to shrink our skin can feel baggy?

    Muscle developement, fat loss and then skin and muscle get closer together and we have a six pack??? Too simplistic? Close?
