I've been paleo for two months now and finally after about a month I have started to feel amazing. I have a lot more energy, I feel clear minded, stronger. I love the freedom this way of eating is giving me. I also am amazed at the quality of the community and resources available and to top it off I've put my son on Paleo and seen his life-time digestive issues improve.
But I haven't lost a pound :( I don't want to care about this but I do. Every time I step on the scale I feel so depressed and start negative self-talk which is so counter-productive. I've tried not weighing myself, but I am curious and part of me is scared that if I don't track my weight I might gain back all the weight I lost before paleo (it took me a year of really hard work and calorie counting to lose 25 pounds).
How do I let go and trust this way of eating?
and in case it matters: I am 35 years old 145 5'4" and my goal has been to get to 135 for years. I eat pretty strict paleo (cheats are a little heavy cream and some wine), no fruit, limited nuts. I've just started some intermittent fasting. I do crossfit 3 times a week, yoga once a week.
