So... I am doing what I think is hardcore lowcarb... but it is NOT working. Daily diet:
Breakfast- 5 sausage links
Snack- handful of almonds
Lunch- Salad with Chicken
Snack- low carb yogurt, string cheese, almonds
Dinner- Hot Dogs
My thought is that a) the almonds I am eating have too many carbs... or more likely I'm eating more like 2.5 servings and not 1 which is throwing it off b) that's really the only thing I can think of.. because I don't cheat anywhere else. It's just so frustrating because I've been eating like this for an entire week and lost a few lbs, but by the end of the weekend, with a tiny bit of cheating, I ended up right where I started. I guess to lose 3 lbs in a week is an accomplishment and I shouldn't say it's no big deal... the big deal is when I'm gaining it back not making smart decisions.
Saturday was a wedding, and I ate low carb throughout the entire day until we had shrimp & grits, a tiny bite of cake, and lemonade
Sunday was more of a mess... dinner was at a cuban restaurant with empanadas and lots of corn based food. Maybe my weight this morning is just holding onto those carbs, and after the gym tonight I'll be doing a lot better.
I feel like I'm really being seriously about this weight loss journey, and that's why its hard not to see results. When I hear the girls say "oh i don't fit into my old wedding dress woe is me, i can't bring myself to exercise and i eat fast food every day" i do not feel bad for them... because they are making a conscious choice to stay large. I am trying super hard... and its not working, which kills me. I am going to give it another week... and if I am not seeing the results I want, I plan to go to a little to no food diet.
Oh, and also... I have to go to the dentist today. it completely freaks me out. Anyone else feel that way? I had a panic attack in the middle of the night about that, weight gain, and jury duty. Ugh.
