Paleo Update 2

H and I are still going strong with Paleo.  I feel so much better.  I sleep better.  My mood is better.  I haven't had a major carb craving yet, though I do get a little frowny when I think about ice cream and cheese.  I miss those.  But it's worth the trade to keep feeling stronger and mentally better.

My weight loss has temporarily plateaued.  This is unexpected.  I mean, I'm being strict as I can with the diet and to have cut out the fast food junk, all the excess carbohydrates and other yummy stuff, I would think I'd be dropping pounds like a crazy woman.  But no.

Seven pounds and I'm hovering around that loss for days.  Up a couple tenths one day and down a couple the next.  Feeling a little frustrated about that.

I brought it up with the chiropractor today and he says that my body had the initial loss while I was detoxing from all the evil sweets and stuff (okay, so he didn't say "evil") and now my body is reconfiguring how to process this new way of eating and I should start seeing pounds continue to shed soon.

I'm feeling skeptical.  But I'm not giving up.  December 13 is our 30-day challenge goal and I have nothing to lose (but more weight) by sticking with this.

Pounds or no, I still feel so much better in mind and body than I have for years.  That alone makes it worth sticking with the plan.

Stay tuned as we continue...

  1. Well, I'm proud of you! I'm not sure if I'm sold on Paleo, yet, but your dedication is a good thing and the diet is definitely worth sticking to for another 2 weeks. Then you can re-evaluate the situation. It's good to know that a doctor is following your progress.
