Day 7 Low Carb - feelings

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

So, even after the bad weekend, I still reported a loss this week so I'm super happy about that. emoticon

I am still feeling super excited about the new low carb plan. Seeing a loss, big or small most days certainly helps... although I do prefer the bigger losses for sure! I need to measure myself with a tape. I want to see how my body changes too.

Any cravings? No, not yet. In the evening I am not even going into the kitchen to scout for food, which is what I used to do. I am eating my fill at dinner and find I don't need anything else. I debated having a little cheese before bed last night but I stopped myself. I had some the night before and it took me a while to get to sleep so I skipped it and found I fell asleep quite quickly.

An end to Mindless Snacking? As I mentioned, I am not opening and closing the fridge or the food cupboards in the kitchen these days trying to satisfy cravings. I am not bringing the snacks I used to bring to work. I used to eat a buckwheat granola square - very delicious, only 90 calories and all natural, but they are pretty high carb so I have cut them out. I also used to bring fruit, that is completely out right now too. Yesterday I had a snack at around 3pm. I had 1oz cheese and an all natural turkey pepperoni stick. Today I've cut the cheese and just have a pepperoni stick. I will see how I feel afterwards. Dinner will be late tonight so hopefully I will manage to last without feeling hungry.

Plan Tasks for today:
* Measure myself.
* Book a blood work appointment (I have the requisition from my doctor already).
* Think about rewards for goals... maybe time specific too, to push me harder. Although hopefully going shopping for new clothes will be reward enough! I can't wait to buy myself nice clothes from shops other than Walmart.

Total weight loss since starting the plan on May 28th: 1.4lbs.

Not a huge difference but I think the weekend and TOTM have set me back a little.

So close to the 180s! Hopefully I'll be there tomorrow or Friday!

    Well, you've proven to yourself that most of your cravings are physiological (caused by carb addiction) and not physical (caused by hunger). That is so HUGELY important!

    "I debated having a little cheese before bed last night but I stopped myself." Also hugely important!

    Good job. A change of eating plans should include all food categories. Its about educating yourself for what works for you. You sound like you are giving it all you've got!
