Funny what a difference a year makes.

Exactly 365 days ago I did a little New Years Resolution post and my first goal was to lose 75 pounds.   Actually….I said 100 pounds but quickly doubted myself and changed it to 75.  Still a lofty goal but seemingly more attainable than my first hope.  Here I am, a year later and I can say I DID IT!  Not only did I do it, but I blew past that measly 75 pound mark and landed at 95 pounds lost for the year.


I mentioned to my friend, Kathleen that I never in a million years thought I would actually lose this weight.  I didn’t figure I would even lose 20 pounds.  I had been desperately trying to get approval for weight loss surgery because I thought it was hopeless to try and lose it on my own.  It is shocking to me, really.  But then one day, I decided I had had enough.  I was so fat!  I couldn’t live like that anymore.

I made a radical decision to do a 21 Day Sugar Detox in the hopes that I could cut down on my sugar cravings.  That 21 days turned into an entire year of eating paleo and exercising and low and behold….you know the rest of the story!

Hell, I don’t really even exercise that much.

I still have about 50 more pounds to go so here I am on the first day of another new year and I will be embarking on another 21 Day Sugar Detox.  I’m hoping to jump start the year and get my cravings back under control (even eating Paleo you can’t escape every craving and sweet treat!).  I will try to post recipes (I’m such a terrible food blogger) and updates on how it is going.  I’m not promising a daily update because if you’ve been here long enough you will know that I suck at posting daily (I got a life!).  But as often as I can I will check in and you can see that this can be done.  YOU CAN DO IT!

I can’t even explain how fabulous I feel and how easy it is once you make the decision to go Paleo.  Read the science on how our body uses food and before long it is easy to say “no” to that fast food hamburger.  Trust me.

The Life with 4 Boys blog posted an entire 30 day freezer meal plan that is Sugar Detox and Paleo friendly.  How easy is that!?

What New Years Resolutions have you made this year?  What ones have you made in the past that you accomplished?
