Dangerously close to goal.

Monday, November 18, 2013

My birthday is Friday. I am turning 58. I still work full time as a nurse in a prison. My sister visited last month. I was 3 lb from goal when she arrived. Not so a week later. I promised myself I would try hard to lose it down to goal by birthday.

I know how now, thanks to all the interesting teams I joined here at SP. I asked questions, did Internet searches, read and read more in books.
I took a break from SP for a while, just learning more and assisting DH on his paleo journey.
I got off medications for 30 years of migraines and 40 years of a seizure disorder. Rosacea also cleared up.
DH went off medication for hypertension, gout, and gerd. He lost 40 lb easily.

Well I got more serious about eating the satisfying fats from coconut oil, ghee, grass fed butter, EVOO, MCT oil, grass fed beef, pork and avocados.
I concentrate on these things, a moderate amount of meat and very low carbs.
Today I am 1.2 pounds from goal and will be there by Friday.
The government knows grains and sugar sources are harmful to us, but everything is about money, not your health. There is no scientific study proving that humans need any carbohydrates.
I care about all of us and our health.
Love and my best to you.

    Great blog! You and your DH are doing great!
Don't get me started on the conspiracy of the big 3 (pharma, food and medical industry) and government control :[
Wheat and sugar cause most modern deceases and yet "whole grains" are promoted...

    This is wonderful, you are so right to research everything you eat, it is a shame that our standards have dropped to this level.

  I do this all the health improvement both of you have made and weight loss is GREAT!

I happen to think the carbs in fruit and vegtables are good, and limited whole grains ( exspecialy non GMO when one can. )

You'll be a goal in no time. Your a looking good!!! emoticon

    the grains would be good if man did not mess with them. They did eat grains in the Bible but those grains are not like what we have now.

    That is SO amazing…both you and your husband. And I like what you said about how SP helps too. I'm not kidding: you really inspire me and give me hope now that I am just starting out going Paleo. emoticon Someday, I too will "own small clothes"!
