Back in early 2011 I set a goal for myself to lose 100 pounds over a one year period. The achievment of the goal was to be my birthday present to myself. Well I evidently didn't really care about myself all that much. After 30 days I had lost eighteen pounds and pretty much stalled there, got discouraged and quit. (My usual MO) So advance 10 months (and back to 342 pounds yep gained it all back plus 2), sitting in the doctors office for other issues, and out of ther blue he pops off, you know you are insulin resistant and should try the paleo diet. He said give it a try for a couple of weeks and lets see what happens. So here I am four weeks later down 32 pounds, feeling a slight difference in stamina (two 15 pound sacks of taters I'm not carrying around all the time) but more importantly my back pain is easing slightly. I realize I have already done damage but wish to finish my career and want to avoid the knife so I have to lose this weight. Anyway, I'm rambling, I did the math and realized I had lost almost a third of my goal in 30 days, by being mindful of what I eat and increasing my water intake from next to zero to five liters a day. I realize that the progress probably will slow down but hey I'm back and determined and this time I'm hoping to give myself a very nice Christamas present (new wardrobe). Best wishes to all of you GROKS out there keep the faith.
