Paleo Check In

I am at 251 lbs, which is the lowest I've been since 2009.  I'm just 2 pounds away from the glorious 240's (did I really just say that?) but more important is I found a post where I say I went down to 239 pounds.  I forgot I got that low, I thought my lowest was 245.  It's weird these numbers encourage me as big as they are, I guess it's because they are closer to the 200 pound goal than 250 and up.  I'm getting there.

Today I went thru my closet and am donating 7 pairs of pants there's still more to go thru but I still feel like its time for me to get rid of the old.

This week alone I've dropped about 3-4 pounds and as silly as it sounds I believe its because I am keeping my carbs between the 50 and 100 grams.  I did some walking this week, slow, steady and ate fruit, nuts, salads, cheese burgers, chicken, sweet potatoes etc. and I am thisclose to starting that TOM and still I lost weight.

Hubby who is 6' is now down to 206 pounds, he looks amazing and healthy, we both love this lifestyle.  I visit MDA daily and other paleo/primal websites for new recipes (Hubs wants paleo desserts) and quite frankly ladies and gentlemen this is the first time I am not afraid to go back.  That speaks volumes as to how this lifestyle fits with me.

That's it for now, must get dinner ready (liver, onions and veggies).

Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't updated since May but I'm still eating paleo.  I have lost 32 pounds, 10 since my May 21st post.  I have dropped salad dressing and butter.  I don't have the desire to drop cheese just yet though I do not have any in my lunch salad anymore.  I have count down immensely on pop/soda though I'm not 100% free of it.  I like this way of eating, I can't help it, I get a delicious breakfast every day, a salad for lunch and a great dinner of protein and vegetables.  I even get dark chocolate (80% and up) on occasion.

Overall I am satisfied with the results, they are a bit slow but that's ok, maybe this time it'll stick!

I'll be back tomorrow! Time to take the dog out!
