30 down, 100 to go!

This is what 100 pounds of fat looks like!

I wish I was talking about football but I’m not! I’ve been eating Paleo (80/20) for less than two months and have lost 30 pounds. It has been easy…no, I really mean it. It has been easy! Okay, it’s been easier than what I thought it would be. I thought I wouldn’t be able to live without bread, cheddar cheese and hamburgers but I was wrong! I can live and I am motivated to live a long, full and productive life.

  • I have eaten steak, pumpkin pancakes, pizza, chicken wings and have never gone hungry.
  • My sweet tooth has not be deprived but has been busy rediscovering how amazing fruit tastes, the joys of coconut mousse, blackberry cobbler etc…
  • I am in awe at all the wonderful recipes that include cauliflower and parsnips. Hello, Cauliflower Rice and Parsnip Cookies!
  • I have given up soda pop and juice for water, tea and coffee ~ coffee is not going anywhere but sugar and cream has been replaced with coconut milk.

The side effects of losing my first initial 30  pounds by becoming Paleo include:

  • My skin is so soft that I no longer require moisturizer
  • I have more energy which makes me more productive and happier to be around
  • I’ve noticed a huge decrease in leg cramps, body aches and joint pain
  • My hair is shiner and not as oily
  • My clothes are fitting better and I am pleased to say that they are becoming saggy 🙂

The greatest thing is having people be Paleo curious. My mom, step dad, aunt, uncle and sister are all now on board! Their life will change as their body heals and becomes stronger ~ and nothing is better than knowing the people you love are on the road to getting healthy.

I am committed to losing 100 more pounds, if I can do this, so can you!
