But I'm not missing them at all-I'm finding the extra fat in the Low Carb routine is managing that nicely. <BR> <BR> WHAT I'M REALLY CRAVING IS FRUIT. Yesterday it nearly had me crawling the walls, I was out of blueberries, my lemon juice (i dilute 2 litres of it with some sweeten... Sun, 7 Jul 2013 06:57:56 EST I know I shouldn't weigh myself every day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5409234 And I wish I could stop myself! I lost a pound on Monday and although it was less than I normally lose, I kept happy because it was a loss. <BR> <BR> Sadly the last two days, I've put a pound ON each day. I can do without this, and don't see why because I've done nothing different, I'm eating the same as normal and my carbs have been under 30 for both days. <BR> <BR> All I can do is to try and NOT weigh myself until saturday and hope that things have turned around <BR> <BR> I'm not goin... Wed, 3 Jul 2013 03:17:31 EST Another pound off today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5406999 which makes a total of 17 pounds (approximate) since beginning on 29th May. I say approximate because I didn't get a pair of scales until friday 22nd June and since 22nd I've lost nine pounds, so I have guestimated that I lost 8 pounds in the 3 previous weeks. It was probably a lot more, but there's no way to ever tell, so I'll stick with that. No point in doing otherwise. <BR> <BR> I'm not disappointed with "only" a pound lost for several reasons: <BR> <BR> 1. I had a drinking binge on fri... Mon, 1 Jul 2013 05:38:17 EST Day 26 on Low carb http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5400963 I couldn’t resist today—specially with the shiny new scales—and weighed myself. It was daft to think so, but I’d still been doubting the efficacy of the eating plan. We are all so brain washed into thinking “hey, stop stuffing bacon into the skin of that chicken, in fact take the skin OFF the chicken because no one can eat fat like this and lose weight!” Even up to today I believed-REALLY believed this. I was sticking to the plan while still disbelieving that it works, and I can’t tell you ho... Tue, 25 Jun 2013 06:08:35 EST
