Before/After picture update.

These two were taken almost exactly a year apart. I'm wearing the same shirt and standing in nearly the same place. Not sure what the exact number is right now. I've been off the scale for a month and have one more day before I can get back on. But let me tell you guys---I look good naked!


What a difference a year makes!

Girl, you are slim. (Different men, though? YOU NAUGHTY GIRL.)

I look good naked!

Pics, or it didn't happen :D

It's not my fault Giovanni (picture #1) didn't show up this year for my "after" shot. And let's face it, David (picture #2) is a photogenic bastard.

I know hubby wants to take nekkid pics....or maybe do a nekkid sketch. We'll see what becomes available to post.

You look great! Now you're just going to maintain, right?

Well, sustain. I'm trying to stay with the Paleo guidelines, but give myself a little room for splurge meals, mostly so hubby doesn't have to squirm through my ordering another lamb-burger, hold the bun.

I think that you look lovely in both photos, but I can see in the second photo how confident and pleased you are. Congratulation and all the best for the next stage of the journey.

I still have to figure out the "sustainability" part of the equation.

Go you!

(I even went to Tumblr for you)

In my dieting news, I've now lost 10% of my body weight since Christmas.

Tumblr is just really good for doing multiple photos in one post.

And ROCK ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF!!!!

It's the least I've weighed since... uh... summer 2010, still got more to lose but I know it's achievable.

I'm trying NOT to be a paleo/primal evangelist, cos it sure ain't for everyone, but it definitely played well for a lot of my issues, so you MAY want to look into it...either Rob Wolff's book or some of the blogs.

I have to admit, After you mentioned it the first time I'm actually leaning that way. Wheat has always been an issue for me, so cutting that's not been so bad. Having peas as a fall back green vegetable is kind of weird though. (And I'm never going to be able to NOT drink tea!)

The main eliminations are dairy/gluten/grains/sugar and legumes, so I'm not sure about the peas. I gave up my peanut butter for which I subbed in the almond or cashew butter as well as all green beans AND my sugar snap peas. I just gave myself a major splurge by eating the black beans with my Pork Carnitas Scramble.

Wow that's incredible!
I know you have worked really hard at it and it has really paid off! You look great! Much happier and more confident. Well done you!

(Sorry about my icon - I was going to change the picture, but realised the only one I have that isn't food is the one I use for posting fics. What does that say about me? Maybe I have a lot to learn from you!)

No worries, dudette. The pain cased by the few hours I was scarfing gluten-bombs (including a pumpkin-walnut muffin I used to adore) has taken away my sugar/starch longings at least for a while. Now I just have to figure out the nut thing.

The other icon wouldn't bother me either. The nice thing about switching obsessions...I'm like---what-ever.

Thanks for the good thoughts. The journey continues. I'd like to lean out a bit more and there's still a lot of work to go in other food-crazy related areas.

I'm having a hard time figuring out much damage I did in Maui and how much I got off by doing a cleanse/detox last week.
