It started with vanity!
If you really want to understand what’s going on in my life right now, and why I haven’t given up despite the Paleo problems I’m enduring, you have to know about the moment when I realized that I absolutely could not stand to look at my face in the mirror. It had never been so big!
I had never weighed so much!!
I was bewildered about how it happened. One minute, I was coming home after a hysterectomy, and the next I was dealing with an appetite unlike any I had ever experienced before. I remember times when my son and I would finish eating dinner and I would say, completely bewildered, that I still felt hungry & was going to have to find something else to eat.
And boy, did I eat! About 60 or 70 pounds worth.
I think I knew then that all I had to do was wait & eventually, I would be ready to start losing weight. And eventually, when my appetite subsided right along with my hot flashes, I was.
Sometimes t takes a while between the decision & the execution, but one day last September, I started a detox diet. We ate LOTS of fruit and veggies!
And I lost about 20lbs. Also felt better, but stopped the detox while I was out of town visiting relatives. The next month, I tried it again, and lost another 20lbs. And by then, I was starting to get my more familiar-looking face back.
But I knew I still had more weight to lose and decided to take a break for the holiday season and get back to it in January.
Tomorrow, I’ll tell you what happened next.
I'm a certified holistic health practitioner, healer and health coach & I have lost almost 90 pounds!!
