SoniaMalik Posted March 12, 2014 Share Posted March 12, 2014 I am a soon to be 46 year old who is 165 inches tall and weighs 145 lbs. On a doctor's scale I measure as being overweight by at least 6 lbs but I don't feel or look overweight. In the past 18 months I have not lost a single pound despite following Weight Watchers and also switching to a Paleo diet for the last 3 months. But, I have gained muscle and have dropped inches even tho' I haven't specifically measured myself - my clothes just fit better and are loose on me. I decided to follow Whole30 to see if the scale would budge on me - I don't believe I will, but a girl can dream :-) I also want to get rid of my sugar cravings - I LOVE dessert and couldn't do without something sweet after each meal. Ever since going on Paleo I have found that it's actually not that difficult.I am finding it hard to kick my habit of snacking on nuts / fruit midday..that's one thing I hope to conquer in the 2nd half of this program. I'm also doing it to give my husband company - he needs to lose 10 lbs desperately and is having a very difficult time with it. He's not much of an exerciser and so this way of eating will hopefully give him that kickstart he serously needs.. So, here's to a wonderful journey that I am determined to enjoy despite the outcomes. ..I will start logging my food to the best of my ability.
