So, this has been a great week for weight loss but even so I'm slightly disappointed that I didn't make it back to onederland this week :/ I am very likely to be there next week, but, of course, that kind of depends on the effects that Christmas Day has on my body.
I am definitely doing well with the low carb now. I think the worst of the detox and cravings are over and I'm getting into a good place plus I feel good mentally about it. I don't feel like I'm doing low carb for a little while or that I'll be switching plans anytime soon or that I'm reconsidering low carb constantly or hating it. I feel good and I feel like I'm truly back on plan and will be staying there and that's a great feeling!
Today is also 13 days with no cheating or binging and exactly 7 days of low carb which is great for me to stick to! I'm definitely going to keep going with this (outside of Christmas). Every now and then I consider adding in small cheats once a week but I know better than that because I know that will set off my binging and bring back the cravings. Maybe, eventually, I can have a "cheat" snack or meal or something once a month but once a week just won't work for me unless it's a low carb "cheat." So, basically, there will be no cheat days outside of some very special occasions like Christmas.
The plan for this coming week is to continue to do what I'm doing now with food and start to add exercise back in. My back is doing better but my right ankle keeps going weak and giving away at random times so I think I need to start wearing ankle braces again and just deal with it.
In any case, it was a great week for weight loss and I know it's going to continue as long as I keep working as hard as I have this past week!
