Have lost 2.5 lbs this week! I was starting to wonder what was going on, because I had been doing my typical paleo thing the last few weeks and seeing the scale only move in decimals… Not what I was aiming for, but it’s still good to see it go down!
With all of the recipe posts I’ve been making, I’ve been eating a bigger variety of foods and also, just plain more food! Everything tastes so good! I never feel deprived when following paleo, but sometimes, when I’m being lazy with cooking, I tend to get in a rut, so therefore I eat less. This week, considering how much I’d been chowing down, I was curious to see what would happen.
I know what you’re thinking – How is it possible that by eating more I lost more? I actually think that awesome aioli/mayo sauce on the crab cakes I made helped me – cuz it’s full of good fat. In earlier parts of this year, I have found that when I eat lower amounts of fat, my weight loss would slow down. And I think that’s what was happening again.
But caution! Just like calories, not all fats are created equal – I’m not saying that you can go eat 3 Big Macs (which are full of fat) and expect to lose weight!

Understanding the science behind what I’m talking about will help you make good food choices. I encourage you to read up! Doesn’t science rock!? ::insert nerd face::
This puts me at about 12 lbs to go before I achieve my goal of 30 percent of my total weight lost in 2013. Super excited! It seems to be within reach 🙂
