Staying Primal

Well it has been one month since I went primal and for the most part I stuck to it. Yes, I messed up once or twice. I had a bite of my daughter's noodles when we went to Panda Express. I had one piece of milk chocolate at Easter, but I tried even on my mess ups to only let them be really little. And when I did my monthly weigh in I was down 11 pounds since April 1st! Wahoo. It worked, and with relative ease. I never went hungry. I ate as much as I wanted when I wanted it, just sticking with vegetables, fruits, and proteins and staying away from sugar, starch, and grains. So, that puts me at a grand total of 19 pounds since Feb 2. One thing for sure with this last month over the 8 pounds I lost the first two month when I just started cutting back...I don't have to go hungry, my posture has improved, and I have had so much more energy. I totally made it through finals week without a Coke! I have been finding some really good substitutes that even my kids like, to stay away from grains. On the menu for tonight is homemade marinara with grass fed beef over cauliflower (instead of pasta). My whole family loves it. I also want to start adding a little walking and a few WOW's (work out of the week from the primal blog...marks' daily apple). Here is to hoping at the end of this month you will still be seeing less of me!

Great job! I'm totally impressed! I ate a lot of candy at Easter, and none of it was satisfying. :( I'm going to do the no-sugar thing for the next three weeks. If I can figure out how. Any tips???

Cauliflower instead of pasta ... I had never thought of that. Thanks for the suggestion!

Jenn, you just have to tell yourself you are going to do it and do it. I told myself I would give it one month. I didn't weigh for that whole month, because of fluctuations from day to day. At the end I lost enough and felt so much better that I decided I could handle another month.
