Thanks Wendy….and yikes, November, here’s to making every day count!!
Inevitably, my weight loss has slowed but still 1 lb down since Saturday, and as the weekend wasnt as strict I’m ok with that, would love to see another gone by Saturday this week.
I have to admit, although i ‘knew’ it, i had forgotten, or lost faith, in how much less hungry i am when eating properly low carb, its amazing, like such a weight off my mind – lol! I’m not obsessing about my next meal, not getting the same food anxiety as i was, and feel generally better and more content! I did know this was a thing, it happened before, but it had been so long i had kinda persuaded myself it wasnt real!
Anyway, feeling good and still excited about this adventure back to health!
SG, I do hope you get your trip sorted….. to be honest I’d almost offer to come to France and cat sit, sounds like heaven!! Alas too many furry dependents here to worry about.
I do feel for you and the scale numbers…. frustrating i am sure…… someone will have a tip or three….. a way to switch things up and get your body listening. But your blood numbers are good and well thats priority isnt it!! I’m pretty sure you know most of the tricks…..,but id be tempted to try upping calories 2 days a week with extra fats – egg, avocado, butter etc, to give your metabolism a boost and keep your system guessing…..?! Someone wiser than me will be more help im sure.
Toriana – sounds like you know what does and doesnt work for you, giving the BSD a go sounds like a good plan. Ketosis certainly helps my hunger, I’m strict, but not keto, as i eat too many veggies – broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, onions… so over 20g carbs but generally less than 60g….this keeps me in ketosis and amazingly not hungry.
Tulip – I’m with wendy, cut yourself some slack and be kind to yourself. Good food choices is kindness, but certainly dont be hard on yourself for making some different choices. One day at a time….
Just realised how thirsty i am…. off for some fizzy water!!
