ONE MONTH UPDATE: Here We Go!
Hello Otherbeasts! The numbers have come in, and after only a month of
eating Primal I have lost 15.2 pounds and have lost 16" TOTAL! WOW! I am
now down to 174.8 and I plan on continuing the trend! I can't believe
all I had to do was eat. Amazing. If you want the dirty numbers, here
Neck: 14" (0")
Arms: 11" (-1")
Chest: 43" (-4")
Ribcage: 34.5" (-3.5")
Waist: 40" (-3")
Hips: 42.75" (-3.25")
Inner Thighs: 24.75" (-1.25")
Thighs: 20" (0")
darned amazing if you ask me. I also wanted to share with you a
personal testimony from my mother and father. They decided to come visit
J and me for Thanksgiving and so I put on a Primal Feast! Turkey,
butternut squash, asparagus, primal coconut bread, primal pumpkin pie...
it was DELICIOUS. My folks thought so too. The next night I made them
spaghetti squash primal "pasta" and so the 3 days they were here, they
had nothing to eat but primal things. My dad was intruigued but
skeptical, my mom had been doing a semi-primal diet already but with a
few cheats left in. Needless to say I fed them pretty healthy while they
were here. After they returned back to Austin my mom shared an
interesting story with me through text:
Mom: "Dad actually went
Primal on us... lol! Saturday evening after we got back from Houston,
against my advice, he decided to eat some cereal... not good, but he
argued the point that his body was used to eating cereal and that he
would be fine..."
Me: Hrm. 80/20, I guess.
but... after eating Primal at your home for 2-3 days, he had been
feeling really good... in fact, I don't know if you noticed, but he was
really energetic and talkative Saturday morning/afternoon at your
home... quite uncharacteristic for him."
"Well back to Saturday evening... about 30 minutes after he ate that
cereal, we were watching tv, when he turned to me and said, "I don't
think that cereal agreed with me, my stomach doesn't feel good." About 5
minutes later, he got a stomach ache... had to use the potty 2 or 3
times (sorry, tmi)."
Me: Wow... I guess that spoke for itself.
"So, now he's saying that you were right, that he needs to cut out the
cereal, or at the very least cut way down. Now he wants to read the
book... lol! He said, "You'll have to tell [Shade] that I went Primal,
much better than going postal! LOL."
So, isn't that neat? My dad,
the naysayer, has seen proof with his own eyes/stomach that eating
Primal is very beneficial for oneself. I'm glad they're deciding on a
healthier lifestyle choice; I love my parents and I want them to be
around as long as possible. <3
So, bottomline is:
STARTING WEIGHT: 190 LBS
CURRENT WEIGHT: 174.8 LBS
TOTAL WEIGHT LOST: 15.2 LBS
TOTAL INCHES LOST: 16.00"
I'll leave you with that to think about. :3
Until Next Time,
