Gwen, that is a great report. Well done to you. It's amazing how once in possession of the right information, everything can begin to fall into place. THanks for sharing and good luck with the next few pounds, and the resistance exercise. I'm sure you'll have continued success. A.

thanks Annie and Canuck!
I'm switching up my current workout to a 3 Day per week muscle endurance program for a couple of weeks (light weights very high reps). I like to shock the system every once in awhile, hit the muscles in a different way with a different form of intensity.
Here's what I'm planning:
2 Circuits (30 second rest between exercises - 2 minute rest between circuits)
50 Squats - 135 lbs.
40 Bench Presses - 135 lbs.
20 Pull-ups - Bodyweight
20 Dips - Body weight
20 Seated Pulley Row - 130 lbs.
30 Calf Raises - 200 lbs.

I'll be 62 in a couple of days and your post caught my attention. I have been primal and sometimes paleo for 2 years and have found great results but not as much weight loss as I would need (need another 30 lbs), so I would love to hear what a typical day looks like for you food and activity-wise. Could you send a private message or post here?
Congrats on the wonderful progress!
If anyone happens to be in Sonoma county for a visit here is a great Paleo Restaurant in Santa Rosa. The Chef lost 55 lbs. on the Paleo Diet so he makes sure there are lots of Paleo Friendly options available...
I highly recommend this group on Facebook - The International Paleo Movement Group
Also this great website - Paleo Movement On-Line

Back from holiday in Devon! The picture was taken at Teignmouth back (working) beach watching the sun go down whilst partaking of a glass of red or three. The low grey hump in the distance behind the yachts at the the left is Hay Tor on Dartmoor.
Now to lose a bit of weight and do some more bodyweight exercise.

Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
