New to the group

Hi all. My name is Lacey. I'm 30 and weigh 361. I've done every other diet out there. A few friends of mine went to a hypnotist and started a new diet eating protein, fish, and veggies. They have been losing weight so I thought I would try it. Went Tuesday and got list of what I can eat and a small list of what I can't. I've been doing research and have seen that there are different types of the diet. The one I'm on I can't have fruit. Still getting used to everything. Making menus out and getting food together. Was looking for a group to join for support and to ask questions and think I found one

WOE: Primal/occasional M&E
Start Date: LC since 2010
Hi everyone... I just wanted to pop in and say g'day

I have just recently realised that my old WOE was not quite "doing it" for me anymore and I was feeling tired all the time. I've been gluten/grain/sugar free for a long time but my previous WOE was more centred around the Atkins approach. I tweaked my nutrient intake and now feel fab. I now realise that I tweaked it to become a primal diet, so I like to think of myself as newly converted I'm still eating LC but with extra carbs from veggies/fruits.

Anyway I look forward to lurking around this area from now on and seeking some words of wisdom and advice from all of you long-term pros out there!

Bye for now...

About the pushups, Speck -- I was at that same spot just a few months ago and now can do 11 (girly style), and I haven't been the best in the world about doing them regularly, either. Good luck.

WOE: Primal
Start Date: Feb 2010
Hi all, last time I checked into LCF there were three dead threads in the Paleo board. This is a big improvement! Hoping some of you are still active.

I started Primal in Feb. 2012, after basically being on Atkins for a couple of years. Can't say I have lost any weight on it, but did maintain what I had already lost. I use Mark Sisson's plan a little too liberally, and enjoy some red wine, chocolate, and the occasional GF goodie. Could be why I'm not losing weight?

But, it does great things for my health, keeps my autoimmune illness symptoms under control, so I'm sticking to it.

I do need to try for another 10 off, and at least be really good until month end, when I have a physical.

Hi there!
I'm so happy to have found you guys!
I've been basically doing primal with a bit of oatbran thrown in... when I read the primal diet I dropped the oatbran & have given it a full shot. I'm on maintenance, just trying to keep my wt. down a few lbs. lower then where it was staying. Its working great.
The biggest challenge for me though, is regularity. But I just have to make sure to eat the things that help...

Oh heeeeeyyy Primal people! So glad that primal merited a mention on this site. I have been a big fan of Mark Sisson's work for years...the last time I "went primal" I lost about 15 lbs even though I cheated weekly. I love how laid back he is about diet with his 80/20 rule because not all of us can be abstainers. Perhaps it is better for the body to abstain, but for the mind, it's more difficult. When Gimli said to Elrond, "Sworn oath may strengthen wavering heart," Elrond replied, "Or break it." In my experience, swearing to be 100% compliant at all times has caused me a lot of guilt and grief when the inevitable bad situation/restaurant compromise/weak moment in the face of fattening deliciousness came along, and I surrendered to failure. So yay for Mark for acknowledging our imperfectness! And yay for all of you Gimlis out there who don't need a mental safety net to succeed!

That's great that it works for you. Funny, I've been slowly dropping things from my diet, 'cleaning it up' over the last 2 years... low & behold I'm Primal! Just finishing reading the book now. The exercise is also very close to my philosophy. Even ordered some shoes that he recommended... (not with toes).

Can I join in?

Due to silly allergies and onset of food intolerances (I suspect I have a histamine intolerance. No fun!), I've decided to go paleo again. I tried Whole30 earlier this year and it was just a bit too extreme for me.

Just a short one to say -- yes, I read Mark Sisson's column almost every day. He has brains, a lot of knowledge, and a sense of humor, even about himself, which seems rare to me in the weight-loss/body transformation world.

I go to the archives and then just look around. Sometimes keyword search things I'm interested in at the moment.

Hi everyone, I'm new here!

My name is Emily, I'm a 35 year old wife and mom of 2 living in Boston. I'm looking to lose about 40-50 pounds, but most importantly, looking to feel better. I'm tired ALL THE TIME, and I feel like part of it is my serious addiction to carbs.

I'm currently reading Mark's book, and have also read "Why We Get Fat and What to Do About it" by Gary Taubes. I am a long time follower of Weight Watchers, up 5 pounds, down 5, and everywhere in between. I think a lot of my problem is carbs. But I don't feel like Atkins is the answer, I really want to get away from processed foods.

I am a little nervous about the following:
- I'm Italian. I'm afraid to say goodbye to pasta!
- My two little ones. I think my daughter (she has asthma) might benefit, but I also can't be the mom who doesn't let her have cake at a birthday party, etc.

Looking forward to gaining insight from this board & thread. Thanks!
