so my quest for a skinner me is still up and running. its honestly a lifestyle now and not a diet. I might have said this before.
Jonathan and I just don’t consume our meals with stuff that isn’t good for us.
TOL (thinking out loud) – if you ask Jonathan, heck! if you ask me, we would be the last people who would only eat the healthy stuff.
BECAUSE WE LOVE FOOD. WE GREW UP ON MOMMA’S HOME COOKED MEALS.
but dude… I still consume ice cream every once in a while or a cookie here and there. just not bread, pasta, rice, potato’s. (ever)
well actually that isn’t entirely true. however when I do enjoy myself some MCDONALDS burger and fries, I get very sick to my stomach later on and get a horrible headache. its not worth it.
Seriously though, in all honesty, I NEVER thought Jonathan and I were that big. I was shocked when I saw the before picture of myself. SHOCKED!
Never once did I feel ugly, unloved, or really unhealthy. i felt so comfortable in my own skin.. I felt good about myself. still to this day I have no idea why I embarked on this quest. maybe the soon to be 30 year old self wanted a change. part of me said if i didn’t lose weight with low carb then i wasn’t going to try anything again for the rest of my life.
It wasn’t easy getting to this point and i haven’t seen any changes in my wardrobe until recently. so i had to wait 6 weeks to ‘see’ anything encouraging. my informant is a very persistent person always telling me to stick with it. Don’t give up.
I still feel the same. I don’t feel exhilarated. I feel as if nothing has changed. I don’t think much has. But I’m not done still more left to lose.
20lbs down in 6 weeks with 40lbs left to lose.
