I'm in the "ugly" phase....
I can kinda pinpoint the cause though... See, I was doing so good with my LCHF diet. I mean super good. I followed it to the letter. I lost weight (and inches).... life was good. Then someone suggested I do Carb Nite Solution. I talked about my experience after it happened, here. But the basic principal of the Carb Nite Solution was this: you eat super low carb 6 days a week, and on the 7th day, in the last half of the day, you bombard yourself with carbs. There's "science" behind this, and some people make it work. I was not one of them. Again, I followed the diet to the letter, but nothing. Not only did I not lose anything doing this, but I also stopped losing altogether. I had been so freaking proud to get into the 160's, and then bam... stuck.
Why is that where it all went sideways? Well, I hadn't had carbs in 3 months... then suddenly I ate a bunch of them.... once a week for 4 weeks. That did me no favors. My body craved it... and I think that's why I still haven't been able to get on track now. And honestly, my lack of motivation doesn't help. Let's not completely fool myself, eh?
What does this mean? Well, I'm off work this Friday-Sunday, so I'm going to recommit. I'm going back to what I did last May, when I first started, and was successful. My husband is going to (kinda) do this with me, and has promised to keep temptation away. I think this will be good for me. I also think I'm going to start taking food to work with me, so I'm not tempted by all the goodies there. It's time to get my shit together, and stop messing around.
Thanks for reading! I know it's been forever, and I'm sorry. This is part of my recommitment, and also taping and posting for my youtube channel as well. It's going to take time, but I've got to do this. I would like to be at my goal weight by my birthday (12/4) so we will see what I can do.
