Today is my birthday, i am 47. I am on day five of paleo and it is going fabulously!
Three years ago i lost 180 pounds. I was working toward getting a lap band, so i lost 116 on my own and should have kept going and called off the surgery, but i did have it. I do regret getting it, but i do not regret all of the hard work i put in, i literally worked my ass off. or what I learned from it and that it eventually lead me here.
Time passed and i gained 2/3rds of it back, and was depressed, but not beaten.
I read a book on sugar and its effects. Then four other books on sugar, but i could not get off of it. Then i learned about wheat and that changed everything.
I have noticed a huge difference. Edema disappears, mood is better, cravings that i blamed myself for years are gone.
It's early days but i am excited.
I forgot to say that at this point i am doing a lot of walking. and my first goal is one week which will become a goal of one month after that.
