It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!
My husband Tim and I met while I was in college, and we quickly fell in love. After seven months, we decided to get married, and two weeks later, we did! We celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary in April.
Growing up, both of us were larger than our peers. We both have always struggled with our weight and our relationship with food. When we got married, it didn’t get any better. We knew how to cook—frozen pizza, mac and cheese from a box, and spaghetti. So that, plus lots of fast food and tons of Mountain Dew, is what we ate. Our weight continued to climb as we started our lives together. At our heaviest, Tim weighed 380 and I weighed 315.
