I wanted to give a quick update on how well Paleo is going both for Josiah and myself! It has been 8 days and despite the sleepless nights with Josiah and a new puppy -tune in for the next post about this little guy- I am having so much more energy! I have already lost 7 lbs and am not feeling starved or weak. I feel healthy, its great! We have also been going for walks, sometimes twice a day. Josiah has been better as well. He is not gassy or colicy and his stools have turned back to a normal yellow. It's hard sometimes to fight the cravings, but I remember how well I feel and how well my baby is doing, and it keeps me going. I just wanted to encourage any of you who are trying to eat right or get fit. It really can be done as long as you set your mind to it and stay motivated. There's nothing better than feeling healthy and feeling good about yourself! I still have about 20 lbs to go until my goal weight, where I've been before and felt good about about myself, but it's awesome knowing my hard work is paying off!! If you are in my shoes, just keep at it, don't give up and you will definitely get there!!
