A Fresh, New Start...

Okay, I don't know about you guys but I really need a new start! Like an official new start instead of going up and down and up and down on my weigh-in's for 3-4 months and keep failing my goals and just feel like I'm spinning my wheels and not getting anywhere.

I've tried a couple of new starts in the last few weeks but I haven't really tracked it that way. One of the things I want to do is consolidate the last 3-4 months of weigh-ins since it's all pretty much the same and it's taking up tons of room on that blog page.

I want to be able to count it as an official new start, start my weight count and my week count over and go from there. I've done it before but this is the longest I've gone without starting all over again.

I had my official start on 12/11/2013 and then until 7/26/15, when I started again, I lost five pounds. I then restarted fresh with low carb on 9/24/2015 and have kept going until now. And now I want a new beginning so that's what I'm going to do.

I'm not consolidating all my weigh-ins, just the ones from 4/7/16 until today because I've really not made any real progress since then.

Along with that I'm somewhat rethinking my plan. Even with healthier carbs from fruit and stuff it's still making me feel off. Too many carbs and too much sugar, even healthy carbs and sugar, are making me feel light headed, dizzy, unwell, giving me stomach aches and setting me up for unhealthy eating because then I start to crave unhealthy carbs like crazy and I can't keep falling into that trap so I'm changing just a few small things.

I'm still going to eat clean, healthy, unprocessed food as much as I can but my focus will remain on protein and veggies for the most part and I'm going to use fruit for a small snack or dessert. I want to set aside grains for now. Every time I eat oatmeal I do enjoy it but I end up feeling sick and not like myself afterward.

I'm still meeting with a nutritionist on the 11th but until then I'm going to do what I know works.

And, yes, I do realize that I'm swinging back and forth on some things but part of all of this is to find what works for me plus I'm going to continue with eating clean so I'm not quitting that. Just changing it up a little bit!
