Isn't it great to step on that scale and see all your hard work has paid off!!! Just remember that you won't have great results each week, but even a pound in a week is GOOD news-not bad! And remember that cheating once in a while is not a reason to beat yourself up. I cheat a little too often and I still see results weekly. Good job and keep up the good work!

That's awesome! Congrats! I have the same type of problem with sabataging myself as well. I am on The Zone and eating no simple carbs and higher protein, higher than I am use to, but I agree, it seems to be working!
Keep it up! We can do it!
I am worth it. I just sometimes have to remind myself of that!
To release 3-5 pounds per week.
To become more educated in why I crave the things I do (bad foods)
Good for you!! I also know that I feel soooooo much better, and yes..in an indescribable way, when I do away with simple carbs. For me it HAS to be very strict limits. As soon as i waiver and "self sabotage" as you mentioned..it's over until i can pull myself back on track. Thanks for the inspiration to stick with it, keep up the good work!!
I went on a strict low carb (no simple starches or carbs) type eating and for the first week I noticed that while I didn't lose weight, I was feeling more energetic and just overall feeling much better. Then, this week I noticed that I felt physically changed. Boy this is hard to describe, like something chemically or perhaps metabolically had changed in my body. I felt good enough to start riding my horse again, so I have ridden both Wednesday and yesterday and am planning to ride today too.
This morning, I stepped on the scale and there it was... 4 pounds gone over last week. This is AMAZING for me. And proof that this is working, despite the hard work and withdrawals I was getting at first.
Now, as long as I continue to eat like this and don't self-sabotage in any way, shape or form, I should continue to feel well. Yaaaay!! Just had to share.
