  • My paleo journey

    Ok my mood is still quite low but I'm sticking with my paleo diet. For breakfast I had 2 boiled eggs,some goats cheese and coffee with cream and coconut oil. For lunch I have had a large bowl of soup and more goats cheese and coffee. I am too lethargic to even go outside the door but that's ok for now. I'm still waiting on my book but it's due any day now.Weight still bothering me but there seems to be nothing I can do about it at the moment. I'm doing my best (I think) and have to stop criticizing myself. That's all for now.

    I have received Mark's book and had a quick read through it so am satisfied that I know what I need to do. Today I had protein shake with 2 raw eggs and bullet-proof coffee. For lunch I had chicken salad and couple squares dark choc cos it's my friend's birthday. Dinner was roast chicken with tiny roast potato and butter with roast courgette, tomatoe, leeks and mushrooms. I then ate yoghurt with mixed seeds. I didn't exercise today and still have to get myself in the habit. This morning I also had a piece of caramel choc but just a small piece. I know I have to knock that sugar thing on the head. I haven't weighed myself either but don't feel any weight loss at all. Is it ever going to start? I think too, that my stress levels maybe preventing this too. Forgot to check on my blood results but will do it tomorrow. That's it for now!

      That sounds like a delicious dinner, Louise. Your body will love it, and I hope you enjoyed it. Sleep well.

        Thanks Annie, if only I could have left it at that. Was at a meeting and when I came home I ate home-made choc muffin and an apple. And I wonder why I'm not losing weight!!!

            Right I got my blood results back and they are all fine. I was hoping in one way that something would be off because it would give me a reason for being so tired but maybe that's just the depression. I'm taking vit D too so maybe I should up the dosage. I still feel fat and disgusting but am trying to talk nicely to myself. Ate a toffee cookie but at least I did not go back and eat the whole pack. Otherwise I have eaten primally today so far. One good thing is that I don't eat between meals which is great for me. I'm looking at the positives here so onwards and upwards!

              Not long home from my exam. Was so stressed that when I came home I had a major binge. I ate nearly full pkt biscuits, a packet of crisps, and nearly a full easter egg. I feel sick and full of disgust. Tomorrow is another day I suppose! My shoulders and neck are so sore too.

                Good luck for your exam result. Please don't replace those biccies etc when you go shopping. If they're not in the house you'll have to eat something else.

                  Thanks Annie. I know you're right but I was in self-destruction mode last night. I'm going to have to do something about my stress levels. I'm going to go for a walk and going to try and forgive myself yet again. I feel as though I'm wound so tight that something is going to give.

                    Hi all! My blood results were all fine so no excuse for feeling tired apart from being depressed. I'm doing ok with my diet but need to do better. I have gone back to having protein shakes with raw eggs and coconut milk for breakfast. I like them and they are easy to drink and they keep me full for ages. Still haven't managed to quit sugar but am trying my best. Exercise is something I haven't been doing either. I find it very hard to even go for a walk but have set out goals to achieve next week. My hair has gone extremely thin too. I'm taking flaxseed oil, fish oil and about 7500 iu of vit D. I have not noticed any major changes in the last couple of months but that obviously means I have to try harder with my diet and exercise. Oh ya and try and stop stressing.

                      I'm back again but not with good news. My diet has gone to hell. I have eaten more crap in the last two days than I have in a long time. And I'm writing this in bed because I feel so tired and fed up. I don't know if I'm ever going to get my ass in gear. I mean how many chances can I give myself? At the moment I can't seem to care. I have barely gone outside the door and hate the thought of going out. My mind is driving me nuts too. I suppose I just have to keep plodding along until something clicks. I think too that I don't really believe that I will ever lose weight. I can't even visualise myself being slim and fit. Sorry for all the moaning yet again.

                        I had a good day today. I haven't had any chocolate or crap. I had a double scoop of protein shake with two raw eggs for breakfast along with bullet-proof coffee. For lunch I had a salad with lettuce tomatoes beet and cheese and chicken. Then I ate yogurt with mixed seeds. For dinner I cooked a ham and had small scoop mashed potato and turnips and carrots. I also ate couple of plums. I didn't do any exercise though. I'm hoping to stick with it and succeed!

                          Another pretty good day apart from one lapse. 2 eggs and protein shake and bp coffee for breakfast. Lunch was lettuce, beets, cheese and ham. Plus a yoghurt with mixed seeds. Dinner was some chicken and butternut squash. I ate a mango for dessert. My one lapse was some chocolate after lunch but I didn't binge which is good. All in all, a good day. My weight has gone up by about 3-4 lbs but that was to be expected after all the junk I ate at the weekend. I think I might have to cut back on dairy though as my skin is breaking out in eczema. I'm not giving up my protein shakes though. My mood is not great but am trying to stay positive. So it's one foot in front of the other for now.

                            OK I'm not sure if I'm ready for this because I keep failing. I've eaten sugar and crap again and still have not exercised. I have sought help for depression though. I'll probably have to go on medication too. I don't know what else to do really. I can't seem to be able to stick with anything and I worry that I'm just going to get fatter and fatter. I've read some of the success stories on here and though they impress me I find it hard to believe that I can ever be that successful. I really thought this would work for me and deep down I still believe it but for some reason I can't put it into practice. Do I have to keep trying and failing and failing and failing?

                              I posted for some advice yesterday but unfortunately did not receive any feedback. I had some sort of allergic reaction when I did a 3 mile walk. My skin became red with purple blotches and the itch nearly drove me insane. I'm better today though but feel really really tired. I ate well yesterday apart, as usual, from having too much chocolate. This morning I had protein shake made with whole milk and greek yoghurt. I also had my bp coffee. Naturally enough I haven't lost any weight but at least I haven't eaten any grains or processed food, (apart from choc). I have an appointment tomorrow to see a shrink and am hoping I can get the help I need even if it means I have to go on medication. I was reading some other posts this morning and I think I have to increase my veg intake as in more salads. I'm not very inventive when it comes to making salads so will look up some ideas. That's all for now!
