This week has been pretty good so far. I tracked calories on two days (1271, 1567) and have been out working in the yard each day. Been busy working on taxes and other stuff. I've been eating lots of hard boiled Easter eggs (deviled) and too much ham (cured, Costco, not natural), straying a bit from the real purpose and spirit of AIP. It's more like a basic elimination diet than a healing diet at this point, but I am okay with that. I think I will get the information I need from doing this, and also will continue a lot of the AIP habits without the strictness. I'm still gluten free, grain free (except corn), bean/soy free, nut/seed free, and nightshade free. I eat lower carb and sugar and am feeling good. I did cut back on dairy this week too. I did eat pie for breakfast a few times! It was AIP pie though, and so good! I was going to make coconut cream pie for Easter but instead made Key lime, from the AIP cookbook I got recently:
It's full of nutrients from coconut, avocado, freshly squeezed lime juice, and gelatin. Everyone liked it! Even my sons who usually think my AIP stuff is too bland and not sweet enough enjoyed this one.
I won't be here for a weigh-in this weekend, since I'm taking my daughter out of town on a little 3-day trip (leaving tomorrow). We didn't get away for spring break so this will be nice! I will weigh on Monday and hope there isn't a gain.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
