Awesome! Thanks for the insight into your Paleo experience, sounds like you are making great progress. On a personal note I weighed in this morning at 167 lbs which is what I weighed during my last year of high school, but like you my focus is no longer on weight but on being strong, healthy and fit. It's great to hear your story and I look forward to seeing your photos. All the best.

It could just be coincidental but still it makes you wonder if it stimulated my thyroid in some way. Also I added another interval session at the track last week. I haven't weighed 165 lbs since high school!

You're an inspiration! An encouragement (if I needed one) to continue on the Paleo path.
I'm a 63 year old woman, just three weeks into my reformed eating system. In this short time I have lost 18 lbs, despite enjoying a variety of tasty real food and never feeling hunger.
My digestion has improved - never even thought of reaching for my customary antacid - and no nasty bloated feeling.
Just a thought regarding grains ...
My husband's horse cannot tolerate being bedded on straw - he coughs continually, and we can only put it down to the chemicals they spray the crops with. We've tried wheat, barley, oat straw - all with the same result. He's now on woodchip, and never coughs now. So tell me ... if a large animal like a horse can be so badly affected by simply lying on straw from the grains we are encouraged to eat, what sort of effect does it have on us if we're actually expected to EAT the stuff? Never again, no way.
I feel so much better after just three weeks of this lifestyle change (not diet!) that it's a sheer joy to follow.
Thanks for your example.
You are indeed living the Forever Young way!!
This is what its all about!!
Congratulations...It's so exciting to hear your story! Keep in touch regarding your progress. (I agree with you regarding grains - highly recommend the book "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis)
