Holy buckets on the cookie selling! You put us to shame, lol.
I'm on day 17 of lower carb. I understand how when you look at the plan it seems restrictive. I thought that too. But by 2 days into it I totally didn't feel restricted. I felt full. And somehow when your not hungry your cravings are either manageable or non-existent. I'm eating less often now too which is working out well in the calories department. Some days I have a hard time getting to 1200 and that's eating things like eggs, bacon, avocado, turkey, cheese, almonds, and TONS of veggies. I'm still eating fruit but not every day and when I do eat it I stick to a serving. Apples taste so amazing now that the white sugar is out of my system. And milk chocolate? My favorite thing ever? Does not even taste good. My taste buds are adjusting. So for me its going well. I was 163.0 today. Official weigh in is Friday. Next week I get to take my monthly measurements to see if inches have been lost at all. Excited about that!
I am working the plan my way. I've had some red wine. I've had a microbrew or two. I have some higher percent dark chocolate but manage to be satisfied with 1 square. I would say I'm doing a hybrid low carb plan at this point it is working well. If you change your mind I'm here to bounce questions off of about it.
I think focusing on your exercise is good...you are normally one of the most dedicated people I know about going! I'm sure it throws you off when you don't go. I'm working this week on getting in fitness minutes. Someday I would like to run a 5K again without walking! That's my goal - however long it takes. 101 days ago
