After 2 years I finally reached my goal. Slow and steady wins the race.
Ten years ago I lost 40 pounds with W.W. 2 years later I gained back 20 pounds. There had to be an easier way. I attended a Maximized living seminar and something clicked. I also read the Wheat Belly Diet and Paleo Blueprint. It made so much sense. Over the last year I have stuck to the plan, most of the time - NO Sugar - NO Gluten.
It works. REALLY - I sleep better. My blood pressure is down. It is so easy.
When you read success stories on Mike Sisson's Paleo Blueprint you will see it is more than a diet. Skin issues, diabetes , stomach problems, the list goes on. These symptoms will go away.
You can not be healthy living on food that comes in a box. Trust me.
Even before I started this journey my mantra was "If the food has more than 2 words in it don't eat it "
My goal now is to encourage other people to improve their health and to be thankful everyday, for their body. We take things for granted until things go wrong. Sometimes it is too late then.
Please look after yourselves, so you can live to see your great grandchildren.
Still sitting here waiting for my knee to heal. I do get up and wander around a bit, and do some stretching.
This sure makes my "thankful streak" easier.You realize how much you had before the injury.
We sure take things for granted.
Thank you Thank you Thank you for my healthy body.
This is week 2 of 5km walk/run challenge. I walk a lot now so am finding it very easy. Playing by the rules and gradually working up as suggested.
Bought a new pair of Merrill barefoot running shoes. My other pair were worn right through the insoles.
Today I am walking over the bridges with my hubby.
