If you look back over my blogs. You will a see a year and half of Goal setting, whinging and not much else.
Finally after all this time. Something has started to work for me.
One day, I woke up feeling smothered by my recently acquired triple chin. I was at my heaviest in more than 5 years, 220 lbs.
I realised it was time to do something drastic.
I had always written off low carbing, as something too extreme. Limiting whole food groups, was crazy right? Especially for a vegetarian like me.
I decided that I would try it. Just for that day. To see how bad it could possibly be.
I braced myself for feeling tired and crappy that first day. Then something really surprising happened.
I suddenly felt like a fog had lifted from around my head. Like I was breathing clean air, for the first time in a long time.
I couldn't get over, how good I felt. So soon after starting. I wonder if maybe I have had a problem, with insulin or somesuch all this time.
I am 3 weeks in now. I have lost 11lbs, and it has killed my drive to emotionally overeat.
It hasn't always been easy going. Some days I have been tired, some days cold, and others just moodier than normal. But for the first time, I can genuinely picture myself achieving one of my goals.
If I can lose another 6lbs before the year is out. I will set a new lowest weight record for 2013.
If I can lose 11lbs, I will lighter than at any other time, since I started this spark journey. I'll finally wave goodbye to the obese category!
This week, I am saying goodbye to my induction phase. I'm hoping that I can use the extra carbs, to come up with some decent recipes!
Cheese and eggs, are getting very old now!
If anyone has any favorite veggie low carb meals. Please share.
Thanks for reading!
