Tiger eating

Since coming back from my trip to the states I think one of the major contributors to my weight loss has been lack of appetite. Its not really a bad thing. I am just not as hungry all the time as I used to be and when I do eat I only want smaller portions. I consider this a huge win in my book. Hopefully I can maintain this with portion control and supplements. My plan is to work down the weight by about 20lbs and then kick up the weight training again. I am sure I will see a weight increase then but I will be ok with it since I know the source will be muscle.

Stupid tigerBodies are complex little chemistry sets. You feed them the right chemicals and they produce wondrous results. Supposedly there is like a manual for this stuff that works and doesn’t work. When I did a paleo diet 3 years ago over the course of 10 months I lost 60lbs. Granted I didn’t start weighing myself actively until 5 months in. So maybe just maybe it took a while for my body to start losing weight like it is now. However you would think working on a deficit of calories for 2 weeks would show some weight loss. Yes muscle weighs blah blah. I didn’t do any weight training the last time. I also didn’t start walking 10k steps until a few months in last time too. Maybe my body needs more time to adjust to the new caloric intake and in a couple more weeks I will see it all fall away but damn it would be encouraging when doing the numbers if this worked out. Activity is higher than usual, what I eat is way less than I was before but I am consistently seeing myself at 250. Physical changes are slightly better but I think my body is just stupid. Still plugging away but want to see some numbers change sooner than later.

Been a year and a half and now I have decided to dust off this blog and write about the incredible journey I have been on mentally, physically and spiritually. I began doing Paleo back in February 2013. I estimate I was about 290-300 lbs at the time. Simply doing Paleo and walking 5 miles day I got down to 215 lbs by November. Before I moved to India in February 2014 I got back up to 220. I was good at maintaining my weight but I also had only been doing diet over that year so I was skinny fat. I had no definition or tone.

Being in India I was maintaining the weight. I had started a personal Yoga program. I was not eating Paleo though. I went back to the States in August for a month and while I was there gained 20lbs. Came back and over the next 6 months gained another 20lbs getting myself back up to 250. Still a few pants sizes down from where I used to be a few years ago but not good.

So as of a week and a half ago I started back on Paleo but have also started doing weight training, yoga and swimming to help create definition and assist in the diet. So far my weight has not dropped but I am seeing results in the mirror and how I feel.

Thanks for reading.
