So my numbers changed in May! YAY!:

April May
298 291
Hips: 53" 49"
Waist:44" 39"
Chest:46" 46"
7 lbs lost! 9 inches!!!! Whoa!

I'm not worrying about my chest until I finish nursing in a few months. I really should have done my thighs,calves and arms...I'm going to measure them for a comparison next month. I know my thighs are smaller since my old clothes are fitting now, so I'd like to see what happens next month.

I am really buckling down this month, no nonsense! Gave up dairy starting today, missed the cream in my espresso, but I'll get used to it by the end of the week.

Primal has really enlightened me and is making me evaluate some relationships with friends and their place in my life and my familys life, things are changing for the better around my house and my husband and I are very excited for the future! I think we have tapped into our inner cave person! LOL!

Kocean and CJ ... WOW you did soooo welll ... I am totally envious, no, I am JEALOUS!!!! June will be good starting today...

I didn't measure, completely forgot... I did weigh and am up 6lbs of bloat, I know it's bloat there is no way I gained 6 lbs in two days...

I went to Mongolian Village restaurant yesterday, you chose your food and they stir fry it for you... I chose only meat and veggies, but I think it was the sauces that killed me... This restaurant is out of town and I had the most difficult time staying awake on the way home, so I think there was a LOT more MSG and sugar in the sauces than I thought...

Poor excuse but that's the only one I got, and it's my own fault...

Today and June will be better

I found what I think is an excellent explanation of Paleo. She has also provided additional explanatory links under the +/- signs that give more references:

http://www.modernpaleo.com/principles.html

Do you all think this is a pretty good explanation???

Good morning!
Oh you gals are doing so well!

I gained weight! 129.8

chest 35 (+1/2)
waist 27
hips 36.75 (+3/4)

... and apparently it was boobs and butt!

But I feel fabulous!

Yesterday was the first day of a 28 day exercise challenge at work. Our "work well, live well" program is pitting the sites against each other That should encourage me to exercise a bit more.

Since I obviously still have fat to lose, I think I'll track in fitday again for a while and see what's happening.
OTOH ... if I stayed looking and feeling like this for the rest of my life??? I'd be pretty fine with that.

CJZee ... I do like that article. I didn't go off for any further explanations but all in all ... yes, pretty nice. Calm, gentle, reasonable ... with a nice amount of emphasis on finding what works best for you.

This is embarrassing for me. But if not here, then where?

My first month measuring. I wish I had measured from the beginning. After two months and 15 pounds I am

Weight: 280
Chest: 54
Waist: 48
Hips: 56
Thigh: 32

All I can do is keep on doing what I'm doing. It will be great if I see changes next month, so thanks for the idea, guys.

Exactly Kathy, you'll go down. I had that same feeling when I started, its easier to look at the numbers when you know they've changed but the first set is always the hardest.

Susan: there are worse places add to. Sounds like the challenge will be very motivating for everyone.

Ilene: I love Mongolian bbq places...You definitely didn't gain that over night, just MSG, just flush yourself and you'll be good to go!

CJ- on my way to check it out! Thanks for a new link.

I measured sometime in March when I was trying to size myself for new pants. I started PB late March. I'm going to add my new measurements, thigh, breasts and arm so that I can track for next month.

March
Waist - 49
Hips - 61

June - 42.5 = 6.5 inches lost
Hips - 57 = 4 inches lost
Thigh - 33
arm - 16
breasts - 45

Starting weight was 310, today it's 272 (well, technically lower, but I don't count it as official until tomorrow).

Good work jennylou!

Kathy ... I guarantee that you've lost inches and will continue to do so. Remember that the numbers are temporary.

I tried to program my scale to measure body fat and hydration levels. I'm sooo not technical! In the morning, I'll see if what I did works.

Oh, I was going to fitday wasn't I ...

Jennylou, congrats! You've been working hard! I'm adding my thigh and arm as well for next month.

Back from the doc's. He is impressed and endorsing my alternating fast idea as long as I eat when weak.

I lost 27 pounds in May. My current weight is 341 and I plan on losing another 25 or so in June.

I had a funny experience in the grocery store just a few minutes ago. I was just making a bank deposit and I am fasting today, but... how to describe this... I DIDN'T FEEL FAT. I have felt uncomfortable for over a year because I ballooned after losing a bunch. Yo yo syndrome with the gain bigger than the loss and this last time it was significant. So for a long time I have avoided social situations that I could. I know a 6-2 341 pound dude is way overweight, but I didn't feel like it. I felt good. I like this feeling.

I have no idea what my measurements are, but I have pretty big boobs too.

@Bob that is so rewarding! 27 lbs is amazing! Feels good when things start to fall into place. I know the feeling you described, I'm sure you were walking taller and were emitting self-confidence! Glad you have a supportive dr, that is my next conquest.

Kara, my doc has no idea what I am doing. He probably thinks I am low fat and calorie restricted. Weighing in monthly was my idea because he has such a cool scale.
He is a great guy and pulling for me, but that's about it.

Thanks for the article again CJ. Great summary of exactly how I understand things.

Congrats to all you showing improvement.

And you slackers better pick it up!
