…that the LORD had made 🙂
But nevertheless today is day 14. I reached my goal of eating little to no carbs and sugar. When I got on the scale this morning I weight 233.8 which is drastically lower than my pre-lent weight of 250. It may not be the huge increase I hoped for but its something and I am finally starting to see what type of eating works best for my body. And I couldn’t feel better. I have managed to eat what I want, when I want, allowing for panic and cheat days without feeling like I have committed adultery against my weight loss. This weekend, since we will be celebrating with Star Wars–I will also be celebrating my health. And yes–that may involve spoiling a little. But I still think in a no carb no sugar world.
Some tips :
1) just don’t–I don’t think people seek out to fail their diets. But if you think “oh I’ll just spoil myself this once”, you’re fooling yourself. I just told myself no and when I look back at my spoils they were not as bad. So just think in a “I will not eat something bad” attitude and the little nada will not seem as drastic or effect you as much.
2) try new things–if you are not willing to change and At least try a new dish or two, then you won’t get anywhere. I know very few people who are willing to eat the same thing day in and out to loose weight and can stick to it.
3) prepare yourself–both times I have started my new eating that has succeeded I prepared myself for it. I removed the really bad items, focused on my meals for the first couple days and committed to it. I also held my goal in mind. I want to loose weight to help my pcos, to help me have kids and get to a point I’m only taking the necessary vitamins and healthy items to sustain me.
