Hi. I'm in Washington state. I'm 40, almost 41. And I've dieted since I was 10. I'd like to be done with diets yet eat in a way that allows me to lose weight.
I'm just staring with Paloe dieting. A work colleague has inspired me with the results she has seen. I'm struggline to be Primal as I hgave two stepsons who want things like Hot Pockets for snacks - and then I have them. and there's over 30g of carbs in each.
I drink coffee but do like tea so am thinking I should switch to tea, because I do like creamer with coffee that has carbs
My motivation is that I'm 40 and wiegh 100 lbs more than my heaviest weight before. I can't do the fun things I used to with my husband and stepsons, like play baseball. And my family is very worried about me. I have a heart condition and my cardiologist says I need to lose 50 lbs - which just feels overwhelming when I think about it.
I really like walking. Several yeras ago, I was doing hot yoga four times a week and walking 8 miles at a time. I do love it - but I'm so horribly out of shape now, I feel helpless to start. I've never been in such bad shape before.
My favorite primal food is steak. Is that even primal as it's not as good for you a fish?
I like being able to actually eat something filling like scrambled eggs in the morning! On diets like Weight Watchers I always felt like I was starving.
The hardest part is that I LOVE ice cream and my stepsons and husband like to keep ice cream in the house.
