Hi, I am Meghan and in the Air Force. I have been amazed at my progress since switching to a Primal/Paleo lifestyle. I feel awesome and look so much better. Who knew weight loss could be so easy?

I have 5 children on earth and one little saint in Heaven.

My husband David has also begun this fitness journey with me. I am hoping that as a team we will succeed.

In August 2009 we decided to go 'paleo' and for the first time since 2005 I saw a dramatic change in my weight and my appearance. For the first time I lost inches from my waist, I am now at about 33.5 inches. I was over 41 inches in August. I wonder how much more I will lose?

Fitness Minutes: 4,862

My Goals:
MMy most recent goal is to get to 20% body fat!

My Program:
I follow a primal lifestyle. This means I eat real food, lots of veggies and fruits, meat and fat. I avoid processed and refined foods.

I exercise 3 times a week with cardio circuits and low and high intensity aerobic activities such as; bike, elliptical, running and walking.

Personal Information:

I started at 220 pounds when diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I was unable to lose a significant amount f weight eating the spark way. Then I discovered the Primal Blueprint and it changed my life.

My pictures speak volumes!

My before picture was taken 3.5 years after my diagnosis of hypothyroidism. It was at a time where I worked out 5-8 times a week and ate religously within my calorie range, eating 60% of my daily calories from carbs.

My during picture is after being 'primal' for just over a year. What a difference a ratio makes. Cutting out grains literally saved my life, and NO I do not have celiac disease!!!

    Apples in bacon grease? LOL really??

    I thought I read that bacon was not "allowed". I'd love me a little from time to time.

    I welcome all tips/tricks that's for sure!
    Thanks for the blog comments!

    Wow, thanks SO MUCH for your quick reply!! I am glad to know, after reading the link you sent, that I'm probably fine. But I'm still confused as to why my overall cholesterol went up. (Never mind... kept reading and saw the part about the ratios!)

    I saw the PA who reviewed my paperwork did some math on it (231-68) so I'm not sure what that was about. At least she was really looking at it and not just skimming for "abnormalities."

    THANKS AGAIN!! Now to get those pesky high blood sugars down...
