Paleo AIP Day #28 - Before and After Photos

Sunday August 2nd, 2015

I must have been having a rough day yesterday, cuz damn. I read what I wrote and, damn. Let's just say that being even slightly constipated is not my friend! I got all cleared out and even though I know that I was eating too many Dang's, I'm done with it and no need to dwell. No more overeating, ever!

So here's the day I've been waiting for... the Before and After photos! I'm no photographer but I think the difference is significant and visible; I hope you agree. 




That photo was taken by my husband on our anniversary, when I weighed in at 162. I got bigger than that, topping out at 167.7. I was barely breathing in those size 12 shorts (after we had dinner I had to unbutton them), my shirt was skin tight and I look pregnant. 

Now here's one from last weekend, at my current weight of 146.6, in clothes that fit better (although those shorts are a tad baggy now)...





Truths about my weight loss: it has taken ~80 days, I have lost 21 lbs, and yes, I still have a belly. I have always had a belly - always! For the first time in my life I'm okay with that. But I do need a better after picture, I know this.

SO! Yesterday I left something hanging out there that I didn't look up before I said it, so now I want to make better. 

Poop. I was wrong about what the little hard guys mean, and I wanted to correct myself. The little hard guys do not mean that I need more fat, they mean that I need more fiber! Take a look for yourself: What Your Poop Says About You. Sorry about that, truly. I was in a mood, evidently!

I've been spending a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and freezing veg that I got at the Farmers Market yesterday, and I intend to repeat this every weekend until the markets close. It's always good to select, clean, cook and freeze your own delicious veg and I'm a big fan of pulling out some awesome medley I made and froze in August when the snow is flying in December and the only fresh veg we can get is from another country. Phooey on that! Glad I finally got around to the market. It needs to be the first thing I do every Saturday, damn it to hell.

Vitals:

Weight: 146.6
Energy level: Great, in spite of not sleeping...
