6/13/14 ~ Love how I am feeling. Enjoying life and laughing more. Weight loss (57 lbs gone) is really noticeable now. People who know me when I was heavier~ now don't recognize me unless they take a 2nd look.

7/4/14 ~ Maintaining my current weight loss & enjoying the summer. Swimming in the lake and being outdoors.

Vicky,
Wow, I dropped another pound! emoticon And I seem to have more energy too. emoticon
I started the Great Lakes gelatin on Sunday. I am also cutting down on my carbs and increasing my fats. Thank you so much for sharing what is working for you, it seems to be working for me too. emoticon
Have a wonderful Friday emoticon
Your friend,

So do you do a Carb cycling? I've been reading about Palo and Carb cycling, trying to find something I can live with. What is this Great Lakes Gelatin?

Thank you so much for posting such good information on my page about the Great Lakes Gelatin. emoticon
I did read one of your posts from the Paleo Diet group, that's how I found your page.
I did a search on Spark using Great Lakes Gelatin, and one of the options to click on was one of your posts.
I'm 57 year old woman and I've been having joint problems, which is making it difficult to exercise. emoticon
Making my own gelatin/bone broth is helping, and I will still incorporate that into my family's diet, but have realized I need more protein (wow,great lakes has protein) and also want to start my family on the gelatin, so definitely need to purchase some.
The bone broth I make is great to freeze. It really heals a sore throat and flu too, but it isn't easy to keep enough for every day.
Good luck on your journey, you've come a long way already. emoticon
Good work! Maybe I can catch up someday emoticon
Thanks again for answering. emoticon
Your friend, Quin emoticon
