My Leptin Reset Journey
I'm on this journey for a lot of reasons, I have celiac and hashimoto's, my weight has been increasing non stop over the last three years and it's really affecting my mental well-being. I've been paleo for over a year, gluten free since 2006 and dairy free since 2009, grain free since 2012. Despite all of these wonderful changes to my diet, my weight has crept up from 130 to 160 in the last three years, and while I think I'm doing a good job of eating and being healthy, clearly my body thinks otherwise. I'm 5'7 and while I look slender, 160 is about 30 lbs over where I'm comfortable, and while I might not get back down to there I want to get to at least 140 or 135 to where I feel good in my own clothes again. I know i do better with eating when I am accountable to what I'm really eating and doing everyday, so this is my way of keeping track and sharing my journey.
