Newly Converted to Paleo/ Primal--Lifestyle Change!

I graduated from VT in May and am a grad student at RU. I played sports in high school and was thin and healthy. A mere 6 years later I am 150 lbs heavier. It started with an undiagnosed thyroid disorder and ending with me overeating and not accepting that I wasn't one of those people that can eat a hamburger everyday and maintain weight (like I had in high school).

I joined a few months ago, quit over the holiday and came back here after not only gaining all the weight I lost ...

I joined a few months ago, quit over the holiday and came back here after not only gaining all the weight I lost back, but also gaining an additional five pounds from when I started this in September!

My boyfriend and I started eating Paleo in the middle of January. It's been a life-altering change and we plan to continue to eat like this for life. Go Primal/ Paleo lifestyles!

My Program:
I am tracking my fitness and exercising 3x a week. I work full time + and am a full time graduate student, so my goal is to make time to exercise NO EXCUSES. It's time I stop saying, "I'm sick of being fat." I need to do something about it NOW. We want to have kids in a few years and I know that being overweight makes that more difficult. I want to be a healthy mother and wife.

Personal Information:
I am from Virginia and currently reside in Blacksburg, VA. I drive buses for Blacksburg Transit. I am also a writer- a novelist specifically.

I like that you are not being a food nazi about your paleo diet. I've been trying to stick to a no sugar, flour or processed food diet, but then I will have days of rebellion where I do not want to see a protein. Right now I've got a few days worth of healthy, but only okay, tasting chicken /vegetable soup. It's most uninspiring so I try to really savor a few pieces of fruit and ignore cravings for pancakes.

Congrats on your success with paleo so far! I just started it this week, and I feel great already. I hope it works out (for both of us!) in the long run. Also, what a cute photo! I have a beagle mix, and those faces just melt my heart. :)

I saw your cute picture with your beagle and just had to drop by to say hello. It sounds like you are having great results on the paleo diet. Good for you. What are your guidelines--it seems like there are so many different ways to go about it.

I'm so proud of you and Brendan for sticking with your new plan. It is wonderful to have a person who supports you and your decisions. Keep it up! You'll be a skinny b*tch before you know it! ;)

Welcome to 100 Plus Club! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
