I'm so excited for this transition to Primal Eating.... I have lost 100lbs with weight watchers and a lot of exercise but once I hit my high goal weight I was struggling to maintain and eventually got severely ill. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Disease in May 2011 (an auto immune disease that attacks the thyroid) and was prescribed a gluten free diet. Not a hard transition but I found myself replacing my gluten foods with sugar. Now I've gained 10lbs from my lightest weight a few months ago despite training and competing in a triathlon and teaching Zumba several times a week. I stumbled onto this page a week ago and really got excited about how this type of eating might free me from my compusive tracking and counting of food eaten and calories burned during exercise. I'm on day 2 and feeling pretty good. Already I'm able to eat and feel full... haven't felt satisfied in a long time by foods. I am still eating eggs and a splash of dairy here and there but really trying to focus on meat, healthy oils/fats and veggies. The area I'm struggling the most to understand is the exercise. My usual workout week looks like this: running 1hr 2-3x week, teaching 3 1hr Zumba classes, 1 yoga class, 1-2 kettbell or strength workouts. How do I change this to fit the PB exercise lifestyle??? I want to tighten up all the areas of mushyness... and hopefully tighten some of the skin I have leftover from such a large weight loss. Any ideas???? Here is my before weight loss and after 100lbs pics... I'd love to see another 20lbs of fat gone!!!!!!
