Bette Testimonial

May 27th, 2017
30 Day Challenge

My name is Bette Munroe and I am 68 years old. I live in Greenacres, Washington. I am 5’8″ and shrinking – both in height and weight. My weight, 7 months prior to starting Paleo, was 339.

I started eating Paleo 30 days ago.  When I retired last September, I was determined to start focusing on me, so I took my 339 pounds to the gym, and started reducing the amount of food I consumed. At the end of 7 months, I was down to 294, and was happy with that but after doing some research knew that I was still not eating healthily. I still used processed foods, and although I had switched to healthier breads, they were still at every meal. And fresh veggies other than salads were still not a big element of my diet.

I have Diabetes II (diagnosed in 2009) and was on Metformin, plus I have controlled high blood pressure with the help of three pills. I am fortunate that my genetics have my cholesterol as in very good ranges. I had breast cancer and one breast removed in 2014. I have now begun to see my kidney function being impacted.

What led me to look at a lifestyle change was the feeling that taking all those meds, was now impacting my health. I asked my doctor to take me off Metformin and to try and control my blood sugars through diet. My fasting blood sugars were typically 130.

Paleo is a complete change from how I have eaten all my life. Vegetables were not sufficient in my diet. I am a meat and potatoes girl.  And that was how I had raised my two wonderful children, both of whom have their own weight issues as adults.

All that has changed. On the 30-Day Challenge, I have lost another 13 pounds. Honestly, I was hoping for more, but realize this is a good and healthy weight loss. But the biggest thing is the healthier way I am eating.

Do I miss some of my old foods?  Now and then – but then I remember the reason I took on the challenge . . . better health for me and my family.

And it is happening!  My joints aren’t hurting as much, and my fasting blood sugars are now always under 100.

My plan is to continue on this lifestyle change. I cohabitate with my daughter and her family, and she has incorporated Paleo into all our diets. And when we have family gatherings, we serve Paleo tested delicious food.

Mission accomplished and continuing. Thank you for all your daily emails. I always look forward to them.
