I have created this blog to offer ideas and hopefully some motivation as well as to inform those who may be interested in the diet. I would love comments about your successes, frustrations,ideas, or recipes. If anyone would like to share their story or recipes I would love to add you as an author to this blog.

3 Months, ALMOST 50 pounds and a few of my favorite things

Tonight I weighed in. It was one day later than I normally do because we were gone last night until 10:00. I was thrilled to have a 5 pound weight loss this week. That brought me down to 49.4 pounds lost!!! So close to 50 I can smell it and I can't wait! I think 5 pounds is incredible after 13 weeks of dieting. I've spent some time reflecting on how my life has changed in the last three months. I don't even feel like the same person and not necessarily because of my weight, but because I feel like I don't have to pretend that I'm ok like that any more. I know I still have a long way to go, but I am making progress and I am doing something about it and that lets me hold my head up. Sometimes I will be just paying bills or sweeping the floor and I find myself smiling. That NEVER happened before. I feel like I am a better wife and mother. No matter what diet plan people chose there is nothing like working to become a better, healthier person and finding success. Here are a few things that I have been so excited to discover in the past three months.

Comfortably fitting into theater/airplane seats
Much better hugs from my sweetheart
Sneaking a peek in the mirror instead of avoiding it
Smoother skin
More energy
No knee pain
Sitting my baby on my lap (I've found part of it)
Finding clothes at Costco that fit me
Changing sizes every few weeks
Looking forward to meals because I am actually hungry
Having my husband tell me I need to wear something different because my clothes look to big

Keep it up!!!

  4. The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era—a period of about 2.5 million years which ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture and grain-based diets. In common usage, such terms as the "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet
