What Losing 135lbs Looks Like

What Losing 135lbs Looks Like

So, I’ve previously talked about what losing 100lbs feels like. And then we followed that up with what losing 200lbs feels like. This post isn’t about that. This post is about the reality of being happy with your body, because you’re healthy, and for that reason alone. That said, I specifically request you not bombard the comments of this post with...
Stacy, seriously. WTF?

Stacy, seriously. WTF?

So, this post by Richard Nikoley got me thinking back when I saw it in March. It made such good sense! But I never did anything about it. I just sat by as I let pounds creep back on. I wrote a book – testing recipes had me start down a slippery slope of eating when I wasn’t hungry. Then I had the stress of publishing said book, that made me lose sleep and...

Stacy, the Face of Paleo in Woman’s World Magazine

Stacy, the Face of Paleo in Woman’s World Magazine

Years ago, when we began blogging, we used to do these weekly round-ups of news articles linking to anything Paleo related in the news. It was a lot of work to keep track of, so when we discovered that Angelo’s awesome Podcast (Latest In Paleo) was doing it for us, we happily gave up the weekly news posting. However, this “news” is a little different....
Guest Blog: How Paleo REDUCED Cholesterol in 30 Days

Guest Blog: How Paleo REDUCED Cholesterol in 30 Days

Over on our Facebook page, what started as a short status update about Stacy’s love for bacon turned into a big surprise. One of our followers, Jacqueline Ritz,  told us in brief how the paleo diet drastically lowered her husband’s cholesterol and helped her depression in ONE short month.  Jackie was generous enough to write down her story for us to post on...
Seven Posts

Seven Posts

You may remember a while back when we were featured on the gluten-free blog And Love it Too! No? Go check it out… We were honored she tagged us in a meme about Seven Posts from our blog, which asks us to identify the best of the below categories from 2011. We thought it seemed like a good idea, since we’ve seen a lot of new faces on the site lately. We hope...
2012 21 Day Sugar Detox: Week 1

2012 21 Day Sugar Detox: Week 1

We’ve mentioned before that we are doing a 21 Day Sugar Detox, for many reasons. First, we totally over did it for the holidays – too many paleo(ish) treats and carbs in general aided in us putting on a few pounds. Second, we’ve got a 10 year vow renewal coming up – it’s a big deal since we never had a wedding. We’d both like to look...
Guest Post: Summer’s Series – Part I

Guest Post: Summer’s Series – Part I

I was introduced to Summer through Tara from The Foodie and The Family, who pointed me to the Banana Hammocks & Tutus’s Facebook page.  I was instantly charmed by Summer’s candor and openness. Her blog is fun to follow and her kids are adorable. The fact that she was doing before & after pictures, writing about how awesome paleo poop is, and...
Deep Thoughts: Taking Care of Me

Deep Thoughts: Taking Care of Me

I feel like I need to author this post under the name Jack Handey. Deep Thoughts, Stacy’s Obligatory Monthly Cathartic Moment… But I want to make a post about Taking Care of Yourself. It’s something I really needed a reminder about. I wasn’t paying attention to the person I’m most responsible for: me.  Not work. Not the kids. Not the cats....
Paleo IRL: Stacy’s Confession

Paleo IRL: Stacy’s Confession

  I’ve gained 3 pounds. The world hasn’t ended. I’m not crying. I’m not panicking. I’m not confused why this is happening to me. I’m not even upset about it.  After I hit 198lbs on my birthday, I was able to let go of my scale addiction.  The number goal I’d had for a decade had finally been achieved and I knew everything...
Sugar Addiction Awareness Day and Tropical Traditions Giveaway

Sugar Addiction Awareness Day and Tropical Traditions Giveaway

Today, October 30th, is Sugar Addiction Awareness Day. As former sugar addicts (see our “before” pictures for proof!) this is certainly a subject that is near to us. Since cutting out all processed foods, grains and refined sugars, we’ve turned our health around completely and we’re pleased to pass that message along. I remember nights where Stacy...
Stacy’s 10 pound, 11 day Low Carb Paleo Detox Plan

Stacy’s 10 pound, 11 day Low Carb Paleo Detox Plan

Happy 30th Birthday Stacy! The best present I could have given to myself this year was continued improvement in health and weight loss – and I did just that.  As much as weight is just a number on a scale (I’ve had several people tell me just this past week, “you don’t weigh under 200lbs yet? I just don’t believe it!”), weight does...
What it feels like to lose 200 pounds

What it feels like to lose 200 pounds

As of last Thursday, we, as a couple, have lost 200 pounds. This number is so staggering to me that I feel the need to put it into context. It’s 30 pounds more than I weigh right now and it’s about as much as Stacy weighs. It’s like a whole other person just walked out our door, never to be seen again. It has seriously changed everything about us. As...
Weightloss Update

Weightloss Update

Update: We just realized that with today’s loss we hit 200LBS LOST! In under 15 months. So, it’s been a few months since I updated on our weightloss.  Today was the last day of our Eat For You challenge, and I did my final weigh-in and stats, as well as took photos.  So I thought I’d share with you all, what progress I’ve made since May 19th,...
A quickie from New England

A quickie from New England

We’re on vacation, enjoying Matt’s family lakehouse in relaxing western Massachusetts.  It rained most of today, but while it let-up for a little while I took a walk, with some sprints thrown in, to a nearby pony farm and then did some flexibility work on the dock. I have been super stressed lately, and exercise serotonin is a wonderful replacement for the...

Breaking the Plateau, Stacy’s n=1 advice

Since the Eat for You challenge is now underway, I thought I’d offer some insight into how I personally got myself back on track. I’d lost so much weight so quickly in the beginning (well, first 10 months really) that the plateau I hit about 2 months ago had me going batty. The first month I mentally focused on the main factor that caused the stagnation: I...

Rapid Weightloss: Body Dysmorphic Disorder

It took a lot of guts to put these images out there. I mean, I don’t so much care about the strangers – in fact, I’m more than happy to provide inspiration.  But, it’s the friends, colleagues and family that I know have seen me at my ultimate “low” that keeps me awake some nights. Yes, I unfortunately said “keeps” rather...
