Every year seems to be the same - I lose about 7 pounds by the time June rolls around and by January I've gained it back. And in between I try all kinds of things.
Well another year and here I go again. This time I'm committing to Paleo - tried it in the past, liked it, but then fell off the Paleo wagon. I started the day after Christmas (jeez I went hog crazy most of December on Christmas treats) and so far I've been following it and enjoying it. This time 'round though I'm not being as strict - i.e. I've used bottled mayo if I don't have any homemade mayo on hand. I'm also following more of a Paleo 2 approach (where dairy and white potatos are not the fall of mankind). I still haven't eaten white potatos but right now I'm cooking a grassfed beef stew and I threw in a couple of [gasp] white potatos. I'm also going to make some plantains tostones with my stew - sorry - losing focus thinking about yummy stew.
And last weekend we went to a ranch about 45 mins from where I live and we picked up some raw milk - first time trying it - so yummy. Again, I'm not drinking milk every day but a bit of whole, creamy milk I think is yummily acceptable.
Anyways - I've got a ways to go to lose the weight I want but I'm feeling good and not rushed about it. I've lost some of the weight I gained over the holidays without feeling hungry or deprived.
Happy New Year to everyone! And to all the changes this year will bring!
