So Here I am 28 lbs lighter and full of Fat!
Today I hit the 40's! I'm so happy about this. It's been a long time since I was able to pull off a pair of size 12 pants without having to undo the buttons.. well even a month ago I wasn't able to put on a size 12 and do up the buttons! Progress People!
Ok Lets see.. A little about my path that has brought me up to this wonderful day ...
I started my weight loss journey in 2008 I weighed a total of 199.. (although my heaviest was when I was pregnant with my last baby, which was 207 ) I found this weight loss tea called Wu Yi Source drank up that yummy tea and managed to lose 45 lbs that year! (Tea worked great till I stopped drinking it) I will save the details for myself.. but that Year was the start of my thoughts turning into reality. The Year I finally decided. Ok I do want this *all levels of my life not just physically* And I Finally took the first step in the right direction of change.. It was horrifying but brilliant year.
2009 was my year of depression .. I was getting everything I wanted, but life kept throwing things at me to test my strength, So I ended up stalling my progress. I started drinking again (was a non drinker for 7 years prior) and ended up gaining back 20 lbs.. This year gave me the biggest upset in life, but it also gave me the greatest lessons in life .. And I did Manage to find my inner strength and overcome most of the depression near the end of the year.
2010 was the year of maintance, give or take 5 or so lbs. I gave up drinking again in June and continued my spiritual journey. This was the Year I finally set my priorties straight after the 2002 - 2007 period (I won't get into the details, but this dark period of my life needed to happen so I will always remember what it is that I ...Want!) I accomplished alot on my mental check list this year and growing everyday.
The end of 2010 is where you get the Juicy Paleo Details..
I heard about The Paleo diet in september but didn't give it much thought. and heard about it again in december . December 20th was the first day of my Paleo journey, I ended up losing 11 lbs that first month.. Although I was a sugar addict! ( Hey it was around christmas... sighhhh you know Christmas treats and News years was always a big snack fest too .. next year I'll be better at this time of year I promise!)
The second month I lost 8 lbs.. Still was binging on the sugar products... mmm chocolates.. and ummm doughnuts.. (I couldn't help it .. I slipped and fell into them each and everytime! hehe ok I had no will power) .. Nope my body was craving and I was feeding... But I was doing pretty good with the grains and other processed foods.. I dropped the weight and was still pretty pleased with my results!
The third month I was still on a sugar kick ... Sighhh.... but I had heard about IF'n to get over my little plateau I had developed .. (Ummm too much sugar maybe) and would fast for 19 hours pretty much daily I was never a huge breakfast fan so I found that the 19 hours were pretty easy, and managed to drop another 5 lbs .. I was getting sick of my sugar addiction so I told myself I needed to get serious and it was time to break off my little love affair with sugar. So March 19 we broke up and March 20 I found the Whole 30 challenge, Just reading that I knew Sugar and I were through for good!
I'm on day 8 of the whole 30 and feel amazing I don't have any cravings and have found myself in the state of Ketosis, Which I happen to love .. At first I would get light headed and was wondering if I was doing my body harm by not eating enough then I started doubting that cutting the grains was a good idea.. (I had no idea what Ketosis was or even meant at the time) So as I started wondering about what was happening to my body I started attracting posts about Ketosis and I was like hmm what is that? so to make a long story short I finally realized what was going on and still feel that getting rid of the grains was the best idea since sliced beef!
And that pretty much brings us to today! I got on the scale.. and boom 149 ... (Yess I know It's not about the numbers it's about the way I look and how I feel and the way the clothes fit my body but I'm scale obsessed and probably will be until I hit my 125 mark .. well Hopefully I will grow out of my obsession before I hit my mark) .. thats it for now .. Ta ta and thx for reading..
