Hi all - 32 yo female.. moved from NY to CT about a year ago. Taking the primal dive. Have done great with low carb on/off over the years maintained BMI 23-25 effortlessly. Looking to get back to healthy BMI (presently around 30 last time i weighed in :/ but trying to kill the scale addiction). Went off into the raw vegan route 2 years ago and suffered health wise as a consequence, visited some Matt Stone stuff, now my metabolism is in better shape where I can digest anything pretty well... mostly looking to drop the #'s that i gained and look at this as a short term blip since I was healthy BMI almost all of my life. Some of my goals: slim down for health and to fit into a good 75% of my clothes again, keep the carbs on the lower side but not get too crazy, keep the metabolism fired up without letting cals get too low, eat whole foods in balance (i like that paleo focuses on 'real' food as i am sick of all the refined junk i consumed), drink less alcohol but..... in all honesty really want to lose some #'s (so vain) and look like me again w/o all this "extra" padding.
