Okay, the news this week is not about the weight…although, yay…2 pounds less…go me!! :)…The big deal is that this is the longest I have adhered to a diet plan without being out of control. Before these last 2 weeks + 1 day, I could possibly keep it together for about 2-3 days (usually by dinner of the first day I have caved and strayed from my diet…ZERO willpower people!)…maybe once I’ve made it to the 10 day period before tumbling helplessly into a tub of carbs or chocolate (or both!)….
….and the most astonishing part is that it has not been difficult. As in I have amazing little desserts sitting in my fridge, right now, and I’m not even tempted to have them. I actually forgot about them actually after bringing them home on Wednesday from a church get together. Normally I would have been scheming and dealing to find a time to eat them alone. (Alone is important so there is no judgement nor distraction)
I had mentioned last week some of the things that have been helping and they are what I am sticking with. I certainly cannot underestimate the benefits of a High Fat, Low Carb (HFLC) diet in all this. I am never hungry and although I miss sweets psychologically, I am not really craving them (my constant downfall previously). I really feel my body humming along eating up its own fat like magic, just like the proponents of this kind of diet details. I have easily been skipping meals whenever I don’t feel hungry (this is advocated on the diet…e.g. only eat when hungry).
Let’s see what next week brings and I will write more then.
