In spite of what this article might lead you to believe on siliconindia.com, the paleo diet has not killed me off. Not by a long shot. I haven’t been posting any updates in the last several months due to a variety of reasons. I plateaud after losing 110 lbs and intentionally relaxed what I was doing somewhat. I convinced myself it was okay and temporary. It’s easy to do. I live in a SAD family with 2 teenage kids that are deeply devoted to being SAD. In more ways than one it often seems… But change being ever present, we have been through a lot in the last few months. New jobs, new house, new schools; My wife and I barely survived it!
I’m happy to say that I have not put a lot of weight back on. Probably 5-10 lbs from my lowest point of 115 lost. But I am not happy with where I am. I’m not able to work out due to both of my hips having osteoarthritis from many years of being over weight but still trying to do everything everybody else was doing in my tae kwon do work outs. My hips have progressively degenerated and I’m looking at hip replacement surgery for both as soon as possible. If anyone has any relevant hip replacement info regarding surgeons, techniques, or facilities in the Dallas area, I would love to hear about it.
Until the surgery and recover are behind me, I’m going to refocus my energies on paleo and nutrition. I can hear my hips telling me that losing another 80 pounds wouldn’t bother them a bit!
