Just wanted to update. Not going to the gym any more, had to cancel my membership for a little while due to finances, but did lose some weight.
I used to do Weight Watchers and it worked well in the past, but my weight was not budging much for the last year due to I think some hormonal problems and I gained back the 4 lbs I lost due to hormones - no terrible eating to gain it back (TMI- body acts like it's that time of the month every day the last year with bloating, cramp etc)
Well, I started that paleo diet, more because I was getting headaches and thought maybe it's sugar doing it. Well, I lost a few pounds even without exercising and feel much better. I don't have to go hungry and eat without thinking too much in terms of calories. Which, is win/win. If you're not familiar with it, you basically eat fruits/veg/meat/fish/eggs. I was vegetarian before so eating meat again has been interesting. I did notice one thing that was kind of unnerving - The first two days was rough, I wasn't hungry but I really craved sweets and carbs. After the first week things were golden. I could see craving sweets, but wasn't expecting craving carbs. I have a lot more energy now. The diet isn't for everyone. I was a kid who loved eating cans of veg, so tons of veg all day doesn't bother me, I like it
Anyone doing/done paleo? Anyone want to and be my paleo buddy?
I did make some cinnamon rolls (cinnabun style) for hubby today and without thinking I tasted the frosting. I ended up spitting it out, it tasted so sweet I felt ill just having it in my mouth. My tongue actually felt a little numb! Don't think I'll do that again!
