About a year ago I was introduced to the paleo way of eating. I jumped right in and quickly lost 20lbs in less than 3 weeks. I was very pleased with my results and had every intention of continuing this way of eating for good.
Unfortunately I allowed life to get in the way. I travel quite often and it always just seems easier to grab some fast food instead of packing a healthy paleo meal. Slowly but surely the 20lbs came back. In fact the 20lbs plus 7 more came back.
As of this writing I have reached the 250lbs mark. I am 5’11″ tall so that weight is far above where I should be at. My ideal weight is around 190 lbs so I have exactly 60 lbs to drop this year. And I will.
I decided to restart this site and share my new paleo journey. I know it is easy for some to read this and say why paleo, you couldn’t stick with it the last time. That is a legitimate question, and I would be lying if I said I haven’t asked myself the same question. The answer is I did not fail because it was too hard, I failed because I drifted along without a plan.
This time around I will take certain measures too ensure that I stick with my weight loss plan. I will review my goals every morning and every evening before going to bed.This will help me keep focused and on track. Each evening I will decide what I will be eating the next day. Because of my travels the main meal that I will worry about is lunch and I plan on having salads with a protein on most days. I will also cook some extra meals on the weekend so that we have a few extra meals that only have to be heated up on hectic days.
I invite you along for the journey. I would love to hear your success stories. I promise to keep this site updated at least 3 times a week. I plan on sharing recipes and paleo related material as well as my progress.
