Week 1 - Straight Paleo

Thursday, October 03, 2013

Starting a new diet is always a pain and I've had weight issues all of my adult life. I've started the Paleo Lifestyle this past Monday and already I see differences, I am not bloated, have more energy, can go longer periods of time without food and this is only day 4, I've also lost 4 pounds already which is even better, I've got a lot to lose.

I was down to 214 last winter, my mother in law got sick and things kind of went by the wayside. My grandfather passed away in March of 2013 and then my mother in law passed away in June of 2013 and we spent many days at the hospital and back and forth from doctors appointments and so it became normal to just order a pizza or stop for Wendys. I managed to put on 40 pounds, bringing me back up to 244. With only 4 days in and 4 pounds lost I'm pretty confident that this is the lifestyle I need to keep. My goal weight is 140, I've got 100 lbs to lose. I can do this and am hoping to have it gone within the next year.

I will not be tracking my food on Spark People since their tracker is really not set up for the way I am eating, however the support is amazing, the weight tracker is beneficial and I feel a once a week blog to help follow my progress.

My husband and I have started a juicing detox today! We had our "last supper" yesterday, homemade lasagna with homemade creme brulee for dessert, it was so delicious. But I'm going to juice till Friday, while eating raw fruits and veggies between juice meals. I'm a tea drinker and I take my travel mug full every morning, I didn't intend on eliminating it for a week, however, after just drinking my juice for breakfast and then drinking my tea, my stomach got upset, so I don't think I'll be doing my tea in the morning, at least until the week is over.

I've found myself falling into a slump, I haven't been eating as good as I should, I haven't been exercising as much, I've been down in the dumps and lazy to boot. I thought I had this whole thing down and I realized I don't, not one bit, and even though I haven't gained weight, I'm teetering on the same 5 pounds I was 8 months ago and to be honest I feel down right gross. I haven't met the goals that I've set for myself and I'm disgusted and down right dissappointed with me. I'm starting now, right at this moment, to get back on track, no more cookies, no more chocolates, no more ordering food, no more soda darn it! My kids and husband deserve a fun, fit, active, happy me, something I haven't been giving them. I've felt gross for months now, my back hurts, my belly feels gross, I'm tired, I'm crabby, this is not who I am, I need to bring back that ruthless b*tch that lost 60 pounds like it was her job, the one who wouldn't stop working out until she met her daily goals, the one that used her baby as a weight (carefully, no one was hurt, lol) while trying to tone those loose arms, the girl who ran around like an idiot dancing with her kids in the kitchen while the neighbors looked on in fear, thats who I really am, and I am bringing her back right now, this lazy sh*t is O-V-E-R!!!!

It feels great...

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

to say that I lost 50 pounds, that's the weight of my 1 and 2 year old combined! Its great, its awesome....now....onto the next 50, I would have loved to have lost all 100lbs by August 8th, as that is the day I turn 30 : (, but 50 is good and I am hoping to lose the other 50 by the end of the year, and I know that I can do it, with the help and support of my awesome hubby, family, friends and Spark Friends.

On another note, my hubby just hit the 100lbs lost mark this past Tuesday, ironically enough, his 31st birthday. I'm so proud of him, and a little jealous too ; )

    Congratulations on your 50 pounds. That is a courageous and valiant accomplishment. Most importantly, you are giving yourself the gift of a long and healthy life. I'm almost 30 years older than you, and I am so happy when I hear younger people taking their health seriously. I did not appreciate the need to take care of myself when I was younger. My name is also Leslie and my birthday is Aug. 9th. Here's to Leslie Leos. Good luck on your journey.

I'm starting to enjoy this

I never thought I would be one to stand here and say that I actually enjoy working out. And in all honesty, the more I sit idle, the more my body hurts. When I am out walking or moving around exercising, I feel great, not one ache or pain. Now if only I could find a job that keeps me active.
