|The Brickhouse Chronicles...|
I know I said I was going to move to monthly weight loss reports, but since I'm in this experimental Paleo diet thang (sounds so official), I figured I'd keep you guys posted during the 4 weeks. Everything is still going well. My pain level has decreased by 75% and my energy is through the roof. I no longer feel bloated after meals (gluten was apparently trying to kill me...the bastard) and Buddha Belly is laying flatter. I am so thankful that I'm responding well to this way of eating. I haven't felt this healthy EVER.
Weigh-in this week showed a 3 lb loss. Can you believe it? I actually maintained the 12 lbs from last week and added more to it. The WW receptionist asked what I'd changed to drop 15 lbs in 2 weeks. I told her I was focusing on whole foods and left it at that. I don't need the WW police swooping in on me if I mention another diet. LOL She probably thinks I had secret weight loss surgery. I can sense my days as a WW member are probably limited...and that scares the hell out of me! The program has been a part of my life for so long...and it works. I lost 210 lbs on it in 5 years...and the rebound gain I experienced wasn't because the program failed...I am the one that fell off.
I have a huge support system and plenty of hardcore folks to kick my ass if I get out of line. I'll make a decision soon...will keep you posted!
