It’s our first Tell Me Something Good of the year, my monthly series where I share something good that’s going on in my life and ask you to do the same!
My Something Good for this month is definitely the Paleo diet. I’m absolutely loving the impact that it is having on my diabetes, which in turn affects how I feel. I also love that I’m rarely hungry these days. I’m eating so much filling protein and healthy fats that my meals last me hours. Even though I’m not supposed to, I’m keeping tabs on my calories. I never eat for the sake of reaching my supposed “calorie goal.” I’m just doing it to observe how I feel versus what MyFitnessPal tells me to eat. Plus, with my diabetes, I have to look up stuff anyways to get the carb and protein counts, so I figured I might as well record stuff.
And it’s surprising how full and healthy I feel on fewer calories than before. When I first used MyFitnessPal in 2011 to lose weight for my wedding, it was definitely hard and I often had nights were I was starving, trying to eke out a few more calories. But I never have that problem anymore and I can definitely see myself not calorie counting anymore. You just don’t need to! Woohoo!
What’s your Something Good this month?
