To be honest with myself, I am struggling. I have been on the low-carb journey since 5/28/2012 which is a little over 4 months. I no longer have daily cravings for starchy/sugary foods; however, I am struggling with menu planning and motivation to stick with it. I feel better when I eat this way, but I don't know if I entirely trust myself to stay on the right path.
I guess that is the thing that I struggle with the most ... not trusting or believing in myself. I have been on this path before and have gone off so I don't know what will make this time different. Every day is an internal struggle of my old habits, my new habits, who I want to be, and how to get there. I have a poor support system so may be that is what I need to work on ... to find a "buddy" in this journey.
My weight loss has slowed terribly even though I have SO much more weight to lose. I guess I need to reevaluate what I am/am not eating. This last week I lost .5lb. Granted, I am happy that it was not a gain ... but it is just so discouraging.
To be honest, I'm struggling and not sure what I need to do on this journey to keep it going. I need to trust and believe in myself and keep my head down and march on ... but that is easier said than done. To be honest, I think I need support.
