Week One Low Carb Thursday Weigh-In:
02/02/2017: -1.8 pounds
Total lost: 29 pounds
Current Weight: 201 pounds
So, I'm down 1.8 pounds this week and I'm slightly editing the carb plan made yesterday. Instead of jumping up to 100 grams of carbs I'm going to go up to 50 net and see what happens.
That way it's only a small raise up and things should stay under control but it will allow me to bring in an extra piece of fruit or complex carb veggie and have a little more leeway and options with my healthy food.
It's still considered low carb but it's definitely not keto and I'm okay with that. If you look at my long-term weight-loss from last year day by day I was doing mostly low carb and keto only on occasional days.
My head is starting to feel even better which is a plus and I decided to do (again) the My Fitness Pal 30-Day step challenge because I'm just not getting anywhere with my steps on my own. Today is Day 1 at 2,000 steps.
I'm going to do my absolute best to do all 30 days this time around!

I general, I'm definitely okay with the idea of raising carbs up by a much smaller amount. I'm hoping that still gives me the effects of low carb while letting in more food choices and, once again, I will reevaluate in a week and see how I'm doing.
Edited to add: I'm glad I made the decision to stick with 50 grams of net carbs a day before I went grocery shopping because there's no way I wouldn't have gone carb crazy in the store if I knew my carbs were at 100 grams... why does the bakery section have to smell soooooo amazing???
