A year ago I started a weight loss challenge with my family and a few friends. I picked up the Paleo diet after seeing the success that Kerri was having with it. Not only did it change my body, but it changed my mindset and the physiology i had to go along with my current lifestyle. It is hard, and it was a slow journey. However, looking back on my journey, and reflection on my pictures, I know that it was the right thing to do. I could not be where I am today without changing my lifestyle to live the Paleo culture. I will tell you that I am far from strict Paleo. As you have read on previous blogs, I do cheat, but I try to choose smart alternatives, and make up for my "poor" choices the next meal.....not the next day. I have put my before and after video below as per Kerri's instructions in hopes that it might inspire some of you to keep on the path you have started (hope you enjoy the music, haha).
Again, this was a year long journey. We are only asking you to do seven weeks. This is why we are emphasizing the mental part of it so much. It takes change to create change. If you can talk yourself into these changes now and stick with it, you will make it a more permanent change, and be better off for it. Keep up the great work, and I must say, seeing all of you today was a great inspiration to me!
