Weigh-In Month 3

Here is the report on my weight loss “program”:  Today marks the end of month #3 since I’ve started my Paleo Diet plan. I weighed in this morning on my Wii Fit board and have lost another 2.4 pounds since my last weigh-in one month ago. That is a total weight loss of 20.8 pounds in 3 months!

While it’s still good that I’m continuing to lose weight, the amount of weight loss per month has dropped off significantly. I’m not really sure why this is, but am pretty sure that I really need to start adding exercise into my program :(  Being a pretty lazy person, this represents bad news for me since I wasn’t planning on adding in any real exercising for a couple of months yet. Oh well! I guess I’m going to have to get away from this desk and start walking, dancing, and/or weight training if I want the better weight loss numbers I was getting in the beginning of my “program.”

That aside, I’m still very pleased that my weight-loss is continuing and that I’m still finding it fairly easy to stay on my Paleo Diet plan.

Weigh-In Time!

I weighed-in today after exactly 2 months on the Paleo diet. I have now lost a total of 18.4 pounds since September 15, 2011. Yeah me! Yeah Paleo!

Pretty soon, if the weight loss starts to taper off, I’m going to begin adding some exercise to my program. Probably some walking and/or dancing.

Thanks to everyone for your encouragement!

P.S. – I’m still feeling great too!

I have friends visiting for the weekend, but am still intent on sticking with my plan. The plan is so easy and satisfying that it’s not really a problem at all. For our dinner, in addition to the chicken and salad, I also made some red potatoes with green beans but I abstained due to potatoes being off of my list. My guests were satisfied and so was I.

My biggest occasion for overeating and eating ‘o the junk food was when it came time to sit down in front of the TV and watch movies. Not anymore! I am now very satisfied with a couple of slices of Pepperoni and a dark chocolate square or two. I used to eat bag after bag of barbecue chips, cookies, ice cream, etc., etc., but not anymore – and I can honestly say that I don’t miss the junk food at all. I also don’t miss the heartburn and indigestion that I would go to bed with every night either!

Much better today! Feeling really great on this plan – yesterday’s indulgences didn’t seem to do much harm to my body or my mindset – I love my Paleo diet plan and am going to stick with it for life!

Went off the plan big time today. I had a guest for dinner and made my “famous” pasta w/ marinara dinner. I wasn’t going to have any pasta or bread (just sauce) but then decided to indulge for the special occasion. I also had a glass of wine. Because I went so far off of my plan for dinner, I decided it would be a good day to also indulge in a snack – just get it all over with at once :)

I had some digestive complaints due to my going off of my primal diet plan – let that be a lesson to me!  Next time I have guests, I will plan better. A friend on Twitter had suggested a much healthier dinner but I chickened out in the end – afraid that I wouldn’t be able to cook the meal as well as my old standby that always comes out great. Live and learn.
