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...
