This is working, 11 pounds off in less than a month! I've been 99% compliant, with just a pinch of black dot toxin here and there, and one or two restrained restaurant visits, both generally less than once a week. This way of eating feels totally natural to me (as long as I don't compare myself to what every other american eats and puts in their shopping carts!). I don't feel hungry, and I'm not really counting. The more I focus on fitting in all the recommended portions, the faster the weight goes away.
I'll be getting an infrared sauna soon, I'm so excited! It will work without turning the temperature up really high, which will be nice as I don't really like hot saunas or steam rooms (even though they make me feel good after use). I'm looking forward to the detox and the warmth, which sounds like it is a lasting warmth like you get from the summer sun. I get so cold when I'm losing weight, and this winter has been exceptionally winter-ish.
At this rate, I'll reach my goal by summer. I expect that the weight loss will slow down the closer I get to my goal, and then taper off once I'm at my healthy weight. I just love feeling satisfied and losing weight at the same time!
For somebody who spent 3 days debating finger lengths and genotype, I'm glad I just called it a draw and went with gatherer. If I were choosing a type, I'd choose gatherer, even though I was once hoping for another millimeter to show up on my ring finger so that I could be a hunter. I couldn't be happier with who I am and who I'm becoming. Gatherers truly can have excellent health.
