Quick Update on Week One of Low Carb – Keto-ish Me

Well I’m still alive, so that’s a positive. Also I’ve stuck to the low carb menu with shocking ease. I keep waiting for the standard carb rage / sugar craving temper tantrums to kick in, but those have yet to occur.

A couple of days ago, I had a check-up with my hoo-hah-ologist and was inadvertently forced to weigh myself while there. The number showed that I was down six pounds (in less than a week)! I was so stunned that I threw caution to the wind and decided to weigh myself at home, too. Six pounds down confirmed! Unfortunately that number bounced back up by a couple of pounds once the week marker actually struck a day or so later, but hey – that’s still four pounds in a week. Overall I’d say that doesn’t suck. 🙂

    That’s awesome, Jo! Don’t lose sight of the fact that you didn’t put the weight ON in just a week, so no reason to expect it would all fall off in that amount of time. The fact that you’re putting new habits in place and making a lifestyle change rather than ‘going on a diet’ is the key. You will triumph!!

      I’m good as long as I have something that o actually like to eat to take the place of whatever else I would normally been jonesing for at that point. I have to keep myself satiated because hunger makes my eyes get big and my digestive morals loose! Lol! Keep me updated!!!
