It feels weird to post in the "Success Stories" forum when i'm only on day 2 (and not feeling very successful!) but here goes anyway:
I'm a stay-at-home mom and homeschool teacher of 3 (ages 8, 6, and 4), leading a somewhat sedentary lifestyle. I do housework, occasionally chase children, and care for my disabled grandmother 3 days a week (she's still mostly self-sufficient; i just have to drive her to appointments, and do her shopping and cleaning). Even though i don't work a paying job full-time, i have very little "me" time, and certainly don't use it to exercise.
Paleo/Primal eating is something i have entered quite reluctantly, following my husband (who has had great success after only a month). I have mentioned this journey-of-sorts elsewhere, but long story short, i wanted to be able to cook for him again, so i joined the community (two days ago) for recipes and information, and finally (yesterday) decided to give it a try myself.
Day 1 was not pleasant. I'll just leave it at that. "Low Carb Flu" is putting it mildly. I think i would have killed a man for a cream-filled donut by 2pm.
Day 2? Well, i'm not proud to say that i already cheated by eating a non-primal blueberry pancake with lunch (at least the berries were locally-grown?). My biggest downfall seems to be eating unwanted leftovers. Wasting food is like a mortal sin around here.
