  • In shock

    Is anyone there? I'm in shock.......but happy.

    It is day 8 of this way of life. I started on 22nd Jan when I weighed myself, measured myself, gave up bread and found MDA.
    23rd i went cold turkey. Ate only meat, vegis (not potatoes or starchy roots, but the garden is full of cabbage, broccoli saladings etc as it is mid-summer) butter and cream in my tea. I saw my doc wednesday, she approved paleo (had not heard Primal Blueprint) suggested I did 2 days protein and fat only to kick start things so I did, then ate vegis again. No fruit (I'd sooner eat cabbage than apples).

    Weighed and measured myself this morning (Saturday 29th, one week on)

    I have lost A WHOLE STONE, or in alternative currency, 6.5kg or 14.5 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have lost 1.5" of my bust, a whopping 4" off my waist, 3" off my hips.

    And I am a 48 year old menopausal woman.

    Start weight 231.5 pounds, 16 and a half stone. Now 15 and a half stone, 217 pounds.

    And I have stopped using hydrocortisone on my skin.

    Happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy
    Off to update my journal and then get down the beach with the puppy, who I credit for at least half of this weight loss as i now walk an hour in the morning and another in the afternoon with her....slowly as I'm not yet used to exercise.

      Wow! I know a lot of people will drop a huge amount of weight up front, but that's SO MUCH for just one week! Cool! It's mostly water, of course... but that just means your body was holding on to a bunch of water it didn't need, to deal with what you were feeding it. =]

      I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

        Yeah I heard the first week was water loss, and its funny because I'm drinking more water than ever before now.

        I had a bad month or two prior to starting and I was eating very badly indeed and using sugar as a crutch to get through the day.
