I am very happy that today marks 30 days of my paleo challenge and I'm not going anywhere! This is too easy, too helpful and too flexible to be anything but a lifestyle (not a diet). I feel like this is a way of eating that I can do for the rest of my life and that the 80/20 rule means that I can still enjoy (if I choose) the social/cultural eating that is part of real life in a family and community. You know, like eating cinnamon rolls Christmas morning or having an occasional slice of birthday cake.
That said, I AM interested in weightloss because I have a lot to lose. I am interested in getting to my body's setpoint, which is a weight I don't know yet. But one of the things that scared me from even thinking about weightloss is the idea that one has to be perpetually on a diet. Enter this blog post:
I do NOT want to micromanage my life the way this woman does; she sounds pretty miserable.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on that blog post? I'm especially interested in hearing from those of you, like the fabulous and always helpful @sherpamelissa and @Stephen-Aegis and @luckybastard and anyone else who has lost weight and maintained that loss.
Finally I want to thank you all for this AMAZING resource -- the expertise, intelligence and diversity of experiences is making my journey SO MUCH easier and I really appreciate it!
