My Truths #128 (success stories)
Having my success story out on the web is great reminder of how and why the Primal Blueprint worked for me. Every Friday Mark’s Daily Apple features a Primal success story. So many of the stories are about people losing 100lbs or more. I have found that many, like Naomi (this week), lost weight using more conventional methods before discovering the Paleo/Primal movements. The key in moving to Primal for these people is keeping the weight off. Restricting calories and excessive exercise may work in the short term but it’s not a lifestyle that is sustainable.

I’ve always enjoyed reading the success stories and felt very compelled to send in my own. I didn’t start out significantly overweight so I wondered if my story would resonate with any of Mark’s readers. I sat down and wrote it last year but hesitated for several months before sending it in. I’m really not sure why I was reluctant. I guess, at the time, the idea of having that personal info out on the web made me a little uncomfortable. I finally did send it in and not long after that Mark published my story (August 2012) Link to my Primal Success Story
I’ll admit I loved all the feedback and I realized that many people were just like me before I adopted the Primal lifestyle… just trying to lose those last 10 lbs.
