I started with 70-80 to lose. I'm about halfway--I'm guessing I've lost about 35 but the only measurement I take is my waist every month or two (down 4 inches since Sept.) so I can definitely relate to where you're standing now.
First, it hasn't been a straight-shot journey. I didn't start one day and maintain perfection. What happened is I started last April and was perfect for over 3 months. Then the old mental conversations started (I have a history of binge eating.) In August, I finally bought a bunch of neolithic snacks/treats and went on a week-long binge. The good news is that nothing tasted as I (thought I) remembered and I got sick as a dog. After a week, I was back to ancestral eating and within a week I felt great again.
BUT I'm a slow learner. So, in late August I did it again. The neolithic stuff tasted even worse and I got even more sick.
Back I went to ancestral eating and I haven't strayed since. At the huge Thanksgiving spread yesterday, I looked at all the things I would've inhaled a year ago and realized I no longer see that stuff as food. I looked right past and spotted some raw veggies and the fruit salad I brought. I added a nice pile of turkey meat and had a great meal. I received my share of puzzled looks, but I walked away from the feast with a light heart and a springy step.
YOU CAN DO THIS! Yes, it will take time to re-train your eyes/taste buds. Some day you will bite into a forkful of meat or veggie or fruit and realize it tastes TERRIFIC. You won't need sugar or chemicals or processed grain to enjoy the experience of delicious guilt-free food.
I'll be rooting for you.
