30 Day Paleo - Not losing weight

I did a complete 180 on my diet by eating Paleo at the beginning of April, and now 30 days in, I haven't seen much weight loss. I started at 170lbs, and now I'm about 165lbs (I still have a lot of fat to lose, especially at being 5'3). I meal prep for the week, so I take the guess work out during the week. This is what a normal day looks for me:

Breakfast: 2 Hardboiled eggs, hot tea

Mid Morning Snack: 1 piece of fruit (banana or orange)

Lunch: Cauliflower "rice" (cauliflower, mushrooms, green onions), small piece of sweet potato, and then I either have: sausage, chicken or beef

Dinner: Looks very similar to lunch, meat will vary depending what I had for lunch

I sleep well during the week, I'm not stressed out, I work out 3x a week (@ Crossfit), and I go to yoga 1-2x a week.

The only thing I *think* it could be are the eggs every morning? Is there a limit for eggs/week? Or maybe even the cuts of meat I have? I know Paleo is all about meats, veggies, fats, etc, but I haven't been able to find anywhere about fattier types of meat: i.e. sausage, chicken thighs, etc and if that could be making a difference? I limit my fruit to 1x a day so I don't think it's that either. Any help/pointers will be greatly appreciated :)

You're totally right - I need to be patient w/ myself and realize I can't change a long time of bad habits in 30 days ... I'm practicing being more patient and focusing on how I'm feeling and less time obsessing over the scale (it's really hard ... haha :P) ... thanks for the comment :)

Good point - may this is another one of those instances where the scale isn't telling the whole story :t

5lb in 30 days sounds like a very healthy rate of weight loss. I understand your impatience as I am definitely a results now person but these things do take time. All I can suggest is you find some tool for focussing your attention away from thinking about food and weight loss. Frightening as it is, a year is no amount of time and even if you don't keep going at the same rate of weight loss, you could be transformed in 12 months, or much less!

I did not lose much weight either, but I lost 5 inches all over my body. I encourage you to measure yourself. I bet you are losing inches.

I don't see much, if any fat here, so I would absolutely add some. Also, I'd eliminate bananas and instead do berries (lower sugar). You may also try adding intermittent fasting once or twice per week and/or cycling your calories. For example: 1200 cals one day, 1500 the next, IF for a day so maybe 500 cal, then back to 1200 then back to 1500. Basically, don't let your body get too used to something.
