60 Days Low Carb/Keto With No Cheating!
Today I hit sixty days of low carb/keto with no cheating! This means that I've hit my goal of a 2nd thirty days of no cheating and earned a new weapon! This is the one I went with (photo from Amazon):

I don't have much more to really say than what I posted when I hit 50 days. It's awesome to get this far into the plan with no cheating and I've found that despite how much emotional crap is going on around me right now (post about some of this coming up tomorrow) I have no desire to run to or turn to junk food. I'm doing okay without it and that's amazing to me!
When I first started this no cheating thing, a part of me planned to stick it it out but another part was just waiting for me to fail like I failed all those other times. What I've found is that by making the commitment to not cheat and actually sticking to it, has made further sticking to it far easier than if I was letting myself have crap carbs and sugar once a week and just prolonging and encouraging my addicting.
Giving up cheating has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am down at least 16 pounds in the last 60 days (slightly more but I'm counting my last weigh-in) and I'm at a loss is a total of 47.4 lbs. I'm also down in inches and getting smaller! I'm moving closer and closer to my 50 pound loss and I can't wait to get there because that puts me half way to my current goal!
I'm doing really well with food and with exercise, really staying on track and I feel amazing. It's not just weight loss and smaller clothes but my skin is clearer, my stomach issues are far, far less (I have IBS), my pain days still exist but on a much, much smaller level and this goes for my headaches as well. I also have way more energy and have basically stopped napping all together and I'm healthier and stronger than I was before I started this!
I have no plans to stop what I'm doing and I have no current plans to cheat at all except maybe if I hit a plateau and that's all still up in the air.
So now I tackle the next 30 and 60 and 90 days and I know I can do it and keep doing it! I think I finally believe in myself and that feels absolutely incredible!!
