My friend had lost 25 pounds. Shes doing amazing; shes working out, staying in her paleo diet, making good choices, buying new clothes and generally on track.

Im skipping workouts, eating like an 8-year old who was given her allowance and then let loose on a candy store, nothing fits and generally making poor choices.

The green eyed monster is an ugly beast. I own it. Im not proud. It is what it is.

That's hard. I'm sorry....eating habits are so hard to change, especially in a stressful job like ours! For what it's worth, I often wonder about people on a paleo diet. I just wonder how long people are keeping up with that restrictive of a diet.

Carbs like potatoes too. I have to go cold turkey as I can't eat just a little.

Sometimes I think of it this was. I would never put bad fuel in my car so why do I eat bad fuel to feed my own body. Food is fuel. Eat foods that fuel your body in a helpful and healthy way.

Good luck on eating healthier to be the best possible you.

I've been the green eyed monster too.

I've lost nine pounds on Weight Watchers and have 15 more to lose to get back to lifetime status. I'm glad to be doing it during the holiday season. I went to a holiday luncheon and retirement party yesterday and did pretty well. Not great but not awful.
