Weigh-in Whoa!

Saturday, May 11, 2013

As I mentioned in my last blog, I was hesitant to weigh-in, thinking I'd have a gain for sure after the 2 bad days of eating... nope!

Last Week: 352.8
This Week: 350.8
Weight Lost Since April 8th: 13.6 lb / 3.73%
Avg Loss Per Day Since Going Primal: 0.40lb
Total Weight Lost: 68.2 lb / 16.3%

Just a bunch of walking, and one ST. I meant to do more, but got a little off track.

I reached my weight goal for June 1st! Yay!!!

I can't believe I had a loss this week. Pleasantly surprised, though!!! I definitely was not in range of my carb goals those 2 high days, but I have been the past 2 days... although last night I ate a giant grass-fed steak (like the biggest steak I'd ever had in my life) and I figured it was going to show on the scale... nope. I wonder if juicing has been helping... I definitely feel more energy lately... maybe it's doing something to my metabolism. I guess perhaps I just needed a high day or two to "reset" my metabolism... I have no clue.

All I know for sure is that primal eating / low carbing at least 80% of the time seems to be working for me!!! Yay!

(Zucchini "pasta" is so delicious. High in potassium, fiber, and vitamins, extremely low in carb, but very high in flavor. I used canned Classico Tomato Basil sauce + a bit of grated parmesano reggiano and served it with our grilled steaks. It only takes about 5 minutes to make, too, and cleanup involves just rinsing my spiral cutter in water. I will definitely be making this and other veggie pasta quite often this summer!).

Today's juice was... 1/2 a beet, 1/2 a cucumber, 1 apple, 1/2 a kiwi, 1 lime, 1 small piece of ginger. yum yum yum.

So glad you love the veggie pasta! I just love to make my zucchini, beets, yellow squash, and carrots in this fun and creative way.

    Got to love those wonderful surprises of unexpected weight loss, specially when you expect to see a gain. GO YOU! I've been eating lots of pasta lately since I've gone flexitarian, after seeing you pictures of zucchini spaghetti just might have to look making my own as you did!
