January 2013 I started eating Paleo. For those unfamiliar with is, its a low carb diet. You eat, meat, veggies and limited fruits. No grains, legumes, dairy etc. Google it to read more about it.
From January to May I was doing really well. I lost 38 lbs! My boyfriend and I broke up and I didn't keep up with it. Luckily I didn't gain any weight back. I tried keto which to me seems like a stricter version on paleo, and lost 5 lbs making the total 43 lbs lost. Keto was to hard to stick to, so now I currently eat a mostly paleo diet monday through friday, and on weekends sometimes i'll cheat if I'm going out with friends.
But you know, I'm happy, healthy, and I love myself and my body even though I'm not as skinny as I wish I was I'm actually ok with that.
