The lifestyle that works for me is basically the Paleo eating lifestyle . I have been a devotee of mark Sisson / primal blueprint /marks apple a day website for about 3 years .

Welcome and Thanks for stopping by ! ...do leave me a comment ...I would love to know how you are doing too . What is working for you ?

The lifestyle that works for me is basically the Paleo eating lifestyle . I have been a devotee of mark Sisson / primal blueprint /marks apple a day website for about 3 years . But really turned a corner a few months ago when I recently read "Paleoista " by Nell Stephenson . She was also on the Dr. Oz show in April , so catch the rerun this summer if you are interested .
I have tweeked the program a bit and have found what best works for me . I actually believe that all the programs out there work best when not taken at face value. Everyone is as different as a snowflake ! That is for sure ....

The biggest change I have noticed in the last few months from this way of eating is emotionally .I feel a sense of "happy "and lightness every day ! I don't mean I don't have bad days because I do ..it is just that evidently ... there IS something to getting all the proper nutrients into your body .I am convinced it changes your brain !
Also , I am a foodie . Love to eat and also love to cook. With this program I have found that I am able to so both with satisfaction !
I feel like I have the base now that I did not have before.

You know, It is a pretty awesome thing to be enjoying food tremendously AND losing your excess weight at the same time !

Healthy Mind , Brain , Body !

SparkPoints: 100,109

Fitness Minutes: 17,596

My Goals:
Happily , I reached my short term weight loss goal of 10 LBs. by April 11th, 2011.
My next short term goal is 5 more lbs.on or before July 4th 2011. That will be a grand total of 17 pounds .
That goal has been met !!

My next goal is 10 lbs.
I don't feel pressured, since I continue to make this lifestyle permanent.

My Program:
Paleo 90% of the time works best for me !

Right now I am doing les Mills body pump twice a week , 2 yoga classes and treadmilling and hiking in between

Personal Information:
I live in the great Pacific Northwest and enjoy Skiing , Yoga , the gym , cooking , entertaining , kabitzing with friends . shopping , reading , love bookstores , love learning , good wine , a well made martini once in a while...

Other Information:
I stopped smoking Seven years ago. It wasn't easy and while I am grateful I did it , I am now learning how I can also shed the excess weight it created, that makes me feel " less than". Don't like that feeling ...don't want it !
I started here at Sparkpeople in October 2010 and lost 5 lb. the low cal standard way . I then put it back on pretty much right away and was wrestling with an out of control obsession with food .
The program that is workng the best for me is Nell Stephenson's version of a "plate" and how to fill it at each meal and snack. Her book Paleoista , really brings it all together for women, (IMO) .
I feel a mental and physical contentment from this way of eating that seems to be adding value in all aspects of my life .So far soooo

No races due to all of the rain. It is very sunny today though, at least for now. Our weather plays games with us. Sunny mornings, and we start thinking, "YES! GREAT DAY!" And then, the late afternoons 'turn on us' and the storms start 'rolling in.'

Have a GREAT DAY!

Thanks for your suggestions for cutting out my sugar. I think protein might help too. I plan to make up a huge salad like you and basically, I do that now for lunches....my bad time is after dinner....I grew up thinking I had to have dessert.....I've never outgrown that particular habit....and I love to have a sweet snack with my coffee in the afternoon....Somehow, I need to break these strong leanings......In fact, I do pretty good at staying within my guidelines for healthy eating until 4 o'clock....then little by little it breaks down...:( What do you eat for "snacks"?

Always pleased to see your name pop up on that silly word game. It's a fun way to earn points IMHO.
I don't usually join much stuff, but I did join up AGAIN for the sugar challenge. I would love to cut most of the sugar out of my diet, but gosh! seeing how many foods it's in, its is going to be hard. I have a very deeply ingrained "sweet tooth". How do you deal with yours?
