And the result is.....

Well This is Day 30 and we weighed in this morning. After 30 days of being primal and enjoying lots of yummy steak and similar I am happy to report I have dropped 13lbs. That takes me from the 268lbs on January 1st to 255 lbs that I weighed in at.

As is normal this is a work in progress and the primal lifestyle is not a diet but me making a life change but I am happy that it show both me looking and scales showing. I don't know why I couldn't maintain the motivation before but its here now and it is not leaving.

Ok gone for now talk to you soon.

Still here honest LOL

Well its now day 24 and I am still living the primal lifestyle. True to what I said I have still not weighed myself and will not until the 1st Feb. My focus for now is making sure I am eating and living right which I think and hope I am doing. The part of this that amazes me is not the eating part (I can do that without really thinking...ok give up bread and stuff and eat steaks n veggies... SIGN ME UP LOL) but the fact that I am 24 days carbonated drinks sober *grin*. I was probably the worlds worst soda drinker. While I drank diet it was still too much and not good for me. For now the only caffinated drinks I partake in is coffee. Apart from that its water all the way.

The one task I need to work on is exercise. I have been busy moving stuff at home but I should still have exercised more. At this time I am getting walks in at work but they are sporadic at best. Goal for the next week is to get more reliable on them.

Well let me sign off for now and I will let you know the status Feb 1st.

purposeful delay

Ok so almost 10 days have passed since my last post and 10 days have officially passed since I started back on my path. This was an intentional delay you see as we are not weighing in every couple of days or every week. I am going to wait till the end of the month for that instead. Rather than focusing on weight I am focusing on eating and being healthy.

In the 10 days since my resolve returned and I started following the primal blueprint (I need to read the book, what I know comes from Jen) we have been working on eating low carb and healthy non hormone injected meats n veggies. for this month the goal is to keep to about 50 carbs a day and for the last 10 days I have. No slip ups, no sodas, no ice cream nothing. The last few days I am especially proud of since Jen and Ember are in Florida and I am in bachelor mode LOL.

Setting out on this journey a few years back I swore I would never go back to the 320lb mark and thankfully I haven't but having been at 230 I HATE being up in the high 260's. As ever my primary goal for this journey is to get to 200lbs and see where I go from there. Along the way I want to work at getting rid of my huge ass gut (if I make it all the way I have before and after pics - before at 267 though). If I don't make it those pictures stay buried.

Who knows where it will go this time. I feel more resolved than I have been in a while. Life is busy but I just need to deal with it and take care of business as and when it happens. Again if you are following this I welcome you here but people need to realise I'm not posting this to have people follow I'm posting this to let me output and to give me a history of what I have done over the last few years.

Have a great day

New Year, new resolve, old battle

Well its 2012 and I am still fighting the battle of the bulge. I am hoping I am over my 18 month funk and that my new resolve is here to stay. Started working on the primal blueprint and am at day 3 (hey 3rd of Jan its Day 3 LOL). Weighed myself on Sunday and weighed in at 268 lbs. Not as good as I like but not as bad as I thought it could be.

My goals for this month are to do what needs to be done, report on the progress and start getting myself ready to ride this year.
