Hi, I am Meghan and in the Air Force. I have been amazed at my progress since switching to a Primal/Paleo lifestyle. I feel awesome and look so much better. Who knew weight loss could be so easy?

I have 5 children on earth and one little saint in Heaven.

My husband David has also begun this fitness journey with me. I am hoping that as a team we will succeed.

In August 2009 we decided to go 'paleo' and for the first time since 2005 I saw a dramatic change in my weight and my appearance. For the first time I lost inches from my waist, I am now at about 33.5 inches. I was over 41 inches in August. I wonder how much more I will lose?

My Goals:
MMy most recent goal is to get to 20% body fat!

My Program:
I follow a primal lifestyle. This means I eat real food, lots of veggies and fruits, meat and fat. I avoid processed and refined foods.

I exercise 3 times a week with cardio circuits and low and high intensity aerobic activities such as; bike, elliptical, running and walking.

Personal Information:

I started at 220 pounds when diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I was unable to lose a significant amount f weight eating the spark way. Then I discovered the Primal Blueprint and it changed my life.

My pictures speak volumes!

My before picture was taken 3.5 years after my diagnosis of hypothyroidism. It was at a time where I worked out 5-8 times a week and ate religously within my calorie range, eating 60% of my daily calories from carbs.

My during picture is after being 'primal' for just over a year. What a difference a ratio makes. Cutting out grains literally saved my life, and NO I do not have celiac disease!!!

    Hi thank you for adding me as a friend. I came across your page as I was reading about hypothyroidism. I just found out that I have an underactive thyroid...might explain a lot of my issues. Your page and blogs give me some inspiration. Thank you! I have been so frustrated lately. Keep up the good work!
