So, we will call this my official "before" photo. It was taken about an hour ago by my husband. We were outside freaking out the neighbors by throwing knives (Suburbia is such an odd place and I am smack in the middle of it). I know, I am unbelievably huge and absolutely embarrassed to share this picture with all of you. But, I am finding by exposing my shame it is making me want to keep working hard instead of giving up on my dreams of losing my weight, getting my black belt, and trying to have a baby. The really sad thing is that I don't even recognize that person in the picture. It has probably been ten years since I have seen a full body picture of myself. Wow, this is just depressing me.

I must confess that over the last few weeks I haven't been as strict as I could have been with following the Primal Blueprint diet. So, starting this morning I have started refocusing my efforts. I picked up the "Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals" cookbook. In the next few weeks I will be trying out the recipes in it and posting the results here. So, stay tuned.
Hopefully, I have gotten myself prepared to have a great primal week. The fridge is stocked. I am organized. And, I feel mentally and emotionally prepared. Let's see how this week goes!! Wish me luck!
