Primal Update

Well I think it's time I play catch up with you all.  I am as of this morning 12 pounds less than I was at my previous post in September, not too shabby.  Last week I celebrated 6 months on the primal blueprint plan and have felt wonderful and way more sure that I am going to stick with this plan than any other plan before it.

My eating plan hasn't changed, though this week I thought I'd try something different and that's not to include snacks in the middle of the day.  For one I'd like to see how having no bananas affects my weight loss and even though almonds are the best snack EVER I'm trying to train myself not to need snacks in the middle of the day (twice a day no less).

I still have my nighttime dark chocolate, weird though I eat 72% cocoa, I used to love the 85% but Walmart sells a nice big bar of 72% that lasts hubby and I almost 2 weeks (only 1-2 squares a night each max) whereas the 85% is not economical for us.  Then one day I found some 85% on sale, I bought a bar and thought it tasted terrible.  It's still over the 70% so I'll stick with the Walmart one for now until I stop seeing results and that'll be the first thing to go.

On another note, in 5 days I will celebrate (God Willing) 13 years sobriety, who'd a thunk it? Not me or anyone who drank with me.  I'll be getting my 13 year chip soon (will post pics) and will try to find a recipe for a primal cake if not no cake, I don't need it bad enough.

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by!

Wow, over 70lbs loss, that is AWESOME! I really slacked off on the blogging with our life change upheavals. Had to move away from my beloved Colorado, so I've been in mourning. :-( Lots of health issues with my body NOT liking the south Texas heat after the bliss of the mountains. So I want to get back into healthy habits now that it's bearable to step outside the door once again. Not finding many bloggers still active, so happy to find you here and doing so well! Looks like you found something that's working for you, so that's great!
