  • And the weight is STILL off!!!

    My story starts back last July 2011. I decided to go totally Paleo on my vacation last year. My wife and I would get up in the morning, I cooked eggs and sliced tomatoes and what ever seafood we had for breakfast. We would then just leave the house and go walking around the island or just do something that required us to move. Lunch and dinner was always something grilled. Usually fish or some shell fish. You can tell what food we like most. After 2 weeks we came back home and I discovered my weight went from 182 lbs. when we left, to 171 lbs on our return. I have managed to stay at this weight since then! At the most I have gone up to 173 lbs!! I was maintaining a nice workout regime until I tore my rotator cuff fully! Now 3 month's after surgery I have been able to keep this weight!! I can't wait until I can start upper body workouts again.

    Congrats! Good luck with the cuff recovery, that is not a fun injury, so I've heard.

      Heal up soon. Recovering from surgery is rough, I've been there.

        What a great vacation story! I am going on my first cruise with my extended family in march, and I am going to keep this story in mind on that vacation. Thank you. xoL

          Thanks all. My vacation was a total diet change. Just fish and shell fish. We ate some grilled baby backs only once in 2 weeks. Usually we eat a lot more red meat. We moved around every day also. I work computers so I sit just about all day. The constant moving and the good diet made it all possible.

          The shoulder will be back to normal in about a year! That is what my doctor says it will take for it to get the full mobility back. I did push ups for the first time last night in 3 month's. And, they were upright on the edge of a table. I am just starting my strength rehab as of yesterday. Long road to walk...

                Congrats! I started back in July too, while on vacation (boating with the family). Grilled this and that, salad, eggs for breakfast. Took off 15 pounds fairly quickly...kept it off.

                Keep it up!
