Paleo way to go?

So I don’t want to jump the gun here, but for the past week I have been doing the Paleo ‘diet’. I say diet because it hasn’t really felt too overwhelming like some diets I have tried. Instead I get to eat delicious, yummy meat which I love, but cut out dairy, sugar, carbs. So far the hardest part has been the sugar! I’m surprised at myself. I never knew I had such a strong desire for sugar after every meal, but I do. I need to buy some berries today to have on hand.

Here’s the thing. I weighed myself last weekend and I rung in at a solid¬† 178lbs. Not bad considering I’m still down 25lbs from the weight I lost 6 years ago. I’ve done a great job maintaining but even at 178, I’m not where I want to be. Yesterday I stepped on the scale and couldn’t believe my eyes. The number read 171lbs!¬† 7lbs in 6 days? How? How without feeling hungry or miserable? Sure I workout hard, but I always workout hard. This is kind of amazing and was just the thing I needed to power through all the temptations set before me last night.

This will be an interesting experiment and I’m excited to see where it goes. I’m going to do my best not to weight myself for another week as I know weight can really ebb and flow in the day-to-day. Also, I’m less concerned about weight as I am about inches. I want to lose at least 2″ off of my BELLY and an 1″ around the moob area. Can I do it in 5 more weeks? We will find out at the end…

    Oh and besides meat I definitely eat plenty of green veggies, salads…etc. Things that come out of the ground and not a box.
