  • Ok ...so I wasn't going to post a pic of myself online but I am pretty proud of my achievement in a month...the first pic was taken at the beginning of Jan 2012 and the second pic was taken a few days ago. In the month I have not been strictly paleo/primal but have made a huge effort to avoid unnecessary crap in my diet - no sugar, no wheat, no grains 90% of the time. However, I did have 2 1/2 weeks in cambodia travelling around during this time and last weekend it was my boyfriends birthday + his mum's birthday so cake, beer n wine was had.

    I didn't have my beginning weight but I think it was ~68kgs (150 pounds) - after Christmas/my birthday/new years it definitely would not have been any less than that. I have sat at that weight for a long time and figured that it was my ideal. In a month I have dropped down to 63kgs (138 pounds) - a 5 kilo (14 pound) loss. I am over the moon with the results!! I thought maybe a kilo or two, but not 5 kilos - especially when I haven't been following it to the extreme.

    I am so excited about my results so far AND the fact that I am not experiencing things that I thought were just part of me - the upset stomachs, the headaches, the crankiness. I always was having problems with my digestion that I thought were caused by bad food, red meat and other things. Since changing I havent had any of those problems except when I have eaten something that contains wheat or sugars. This is a definite lifestyle changer, a game changer. I really want all my friends and family to come on board to and feel great!

    ok, so end rant, here's the pics.

    • Yeah, I did some manscaping.
      That probably accounted for at least a few of the pounds I lost right there. The mirror took care of the tattoo though.

      griffin,
      I grew up in Vancouver before leaving Canada for the US.
      I loved my time in Canada, and love my time here in the US. There are great aspects to both countries, just like there are also some aspects that I wish were better in. Life is what you make of it.
      If you want more details feel free to PM me.

            • You look fantastic, Bamboozel. Wish more people thought to take pictures wearing the same clothes. (Myself included.) Big differences -- great job!

                    Yeah - what he said.
                    There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

                    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

                      • Hey errybody...

                        I don't have before pictures but I took these tonight. I've been on and off primal for over a year, but strict for the past 2 months. I've lost 2 dress sizes (don't have a scale so I don't know my weight anyway). And I'm feeling strong and happy with my body for the first time in my life!! (I'm 22) More than that, I have totally clear skin, never get sick, and am much more energetic in the morning. I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this site, you guys are all so inspiring!!

                                Ummm, 50ish I guess? No scale to start, no scale now. Also, no clothes that fit :P How about 3 belts? Does that tell you anything?
