And the 30-day personal paleo challenge is over!!  Guess what I'm having for lunch today?  Can you?  Can you guess?  Huh????  Come on, guess!

Yes, that is obnoxious.  On with the show!

Starting weight:  193.2 lbs - August 1
Ending weight:  186.4 lbs - September 1
Lowest weight:  185.2 lbs - August 26
Weight lost:  6.8 lbs!

Not bad for merely changing my eating habits, eh?  I'm a little disappointed that TOM had to jump in there right at the end and ruin a lovely streak of losses.  That I was retaining water is the only explanation I have for the several gains I had over the past few days.  Today the scale took a big dip downward today so hopefully that trend will continue once again. 

As long as I don't go crazy eating out.  I am sooooo excited to have a meal today that someone else has made and that someone else will clean up.  I like my own cooking but I need a break.After lunch, the plan is to get a mocha and some sort of pastry-like object.  I might go out for sushi again tonight with friends (different place -- can you tell I love sushi?) if my stomach thinks it's a good idea.  And then tomorrow I'll go back to paleo as much as possible.  I really like what it has done for me and I want to keep up with that with just the occasional opportunity for a meal out or a treat now and then.  

Overall I'd call this a success!  Now I need to start adding exercise back into the mix....  Time to figure out some September goals I think.  After all, I've got a race coming up in two weeks and then it's the final race of the season for my running league the first weekend in October.  And not too long thereafter, I turn 40!

  1. Congratulations on the weight loss and on being able to eat sushi again. I am jealous. My weight loss has completely stalled and my motivation to do anything about it is zero.

  2. Way to go on the loss!!! That is a big loss :)
