Honestly, I should think more of myself. I should have known I'd make it this far but I didn't. Lord knows I haven't been perfect. Ate some pizza here, had a snack there - but for the most part sticking to the program. Even if I didn't stick to the program at all the biggest success has been I've been preparing meals for myself and my kid/roommates for two stinking weeks! I haven't done that since they were in elementary school and I've never done it for myself. Here's what I'm learning:
So I began my epic adventure and crappy life happened. My 20 year old son was in a freak motorcycle accident and died. I've been a bit of a mess since then and dieting/exercise hasn't been on the top of my list. Last week I started following the paleo style of eating to support my friend, Lorne, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. I'm not doing it for the weight loss, I'm doing it for the health. Losing 10 pounds over the past week was an unexpected gift. Shoot! I ate hamburgers that I put bacon inside of and fried them on the bacon grease! It defies logic but I'm going with it. I'm not exercising or doing anything exciting, just packing meals for myself and my working kids. I don't feel like Suzy sunshine thinking I can do it when I don't know that I can, but I have to think somewhere in this journey I can succeed and keep succeeding. Cheers to that my friends.
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
