Welcome Maggie!

Awesome job with tobacco and alcohol! Way to go!

Good luck with Paleo and hope it will fix the health issues... Sugar is probably not as hard to overcome as cigarettes.. You can do it!

About tired/not tired...

I think it all depends on what you have been doing to this point.

If you've been eating lot of sugar/sports drinks/carbs to carry you through the day, your body naturally is expecting the same and damn thing won't give up, until... it gives up. That takes time.
But who's stronger? sugar or your evolved brain and will power? Keep going at it, give it 2-4 weeks, soon you'll start feeling stronger

If that fails, 30 days of strict Paleo should be the next step. For some people it is actually a lot easier than the tapering, as the cravings for non Paleo food goes away much faster.

I agree, as strict as possible was the best option for me - the results will motivate you to go on. I know it's hard, what helped me is I just told everyone - family, friends, co-workers I'm going Paleo, now I'd be facing them all if I quit.

Overweight is the new normal, not something I want to be a part of.

Your post is very interesting, Warren and I have long thought that the ballooning weight that is reported with getting older is actually your body slowly losing the fight against bad food rather than some unavoidable age related metabolism shift.  It seems like you have experienced that, made the change, and reversed the 'unavoidable' age related weight and energy issues.  So many just accept it , you noticed it early, made a change back to how we are meant to eat, and beat it. Simple and yet so very uncommon.

That's an interesting thought! that may be true and it makes sense with the fact that we all get that weight gain at different age.. Well, right now I'm happy with my choice and hopeful I can stick to it.

Hey all!

This is my 3rd week Paleo and I'm just looking for support, because I all hear from my family is "you are missing out, you should try this :)"

So why I went paleo? I'm fairly slim - 5'6" and 120lbs, I never had to work to keep weight down, but about 2 months ago ago I suddenly gained over 4lbs in 1 week, which I could not drop (I guess my metabolism has decided I'm old now), so I thought to try a diet, in addition to that I always had mild acne, sinus issues and digestive problems, and I always wanted to try all-bad-things-exclusive diet, but never could stick to it for more than 2 days. A week of paleo showed a major improvement in my sinus and skin, and I lost those nasty 4 lbs. I never could breathe as easily and people started complimenting my glowing skin. I decided I'll never go back to normal (or abnormal?) diet. I don't do cheat days, because obviously I cannot tolerate something, and I'm not risking putting it back in me. I made lot of mistakes, but I don't sweat it, I just avoid those mistakes as I move on. I work, so I allow myself to eat cafeteria meats, fish, soups and salads. As long as they are roasted without gravy and look very simple. I found few good and easy recipes that I make over weekends and enjoy through the week. I have a family with 2 kids, I cook non-paleo for them and paleo for myself. I do work out, but I'm very lazy, and need motivation.
