Why I choose to follow a low carb diet
Well it depends on you. Just like following a low calorie lifestyle takes planning, so does living low carb. I have low carb dieted on and off for the past 20 years. I’ve also tried low calories diets. I would have some success, but whenever I felt out of control, or really wanted to see some results I would start on a low carb diet.
But this time, I decided I need to stop all this yo-yo dieting. Losing weight, putting it back on, then fighting to lose it again. I’m getting to old for that mess!
Low Carb Diets Are To Restrictive……FALSE!
Some people feel a low carb diet is too restrictive. I hope to be able to show you that its not! You can make some delicious low carb, healthy meals with a little time and planning. There are sooo many great low carb cookbooks, websites, and lets face it Pintrest will soon become your best friend as you look for new, interesting meals to make.
So if you read my about page, I think you could feel how miserable I was. So I focused on making this a LIFESTYLE change and not just another 6 month diet I would go on. I was going to break the diet cycle!
There are A LOT of low carb diets on the market. I’m not following any one of them in particular. I’m currently on what some would say is the Atkins induction phase. I want to take off a little over 100 lbs. But over the years I’ve done Dukan, South Beach and Mediterranean. So I have a lot of recipe books to pull from, and this time I’m going to actually USE them!
How I Plan On Being Successful
I plan on being successful by TELLING people about my journey and SHARING my thoughts, and experiences. I also plan on SHARING the journey. I’ve formed my own meetup group and joined many online support groups.
So if you are considering starting your own weight loss journey. Whether you choose low carb or go low calorie. Whatever you choose. Don’t just say to yourself, I’m going to start this lifestyle change. Its too easy for us to break promises to ourselves. But when we TELL people, they will help hold us accountable!
That’s not just a word. Its a motivational tool! For me, just joining the groups wasn’t enough. Like I said on my about page I met a guy selling Keto OS on the day I had really truly had ENOUGH! So I tried it, I entered into Ketosis within an hour and I was hooked! But how did that go towards my accountability?
I decided to make it IMPOSSIBLE for me to back out, quit, or say, I’ll start tomorrow. I took my 250+ self into the med spa I go to for body wraps and hair removal and pitched them Keto OS! I told them I was going to lose 100 lbs. I was going to make my body a fat burning furnace and they should offer this great product to their clients!
YEAH, imagine what they are thinking! Wooooohooo HOLD THE PHONE! Are you what customers look like after taking this supplement? I explained to her I had been on it a little over a week and I had lost almost 10 lbs. Long story short, I have another appointment with them in 2 weeks to talk about my results and the possibility of them carrying it in their THREE locations! BAM!
So know I’ve painted myself into a corner! Which for me, is the best thing. I work well under pressure! In January my loan business will be taking part in a B2B networking event. I brought 2 BOOTHS,,,no not because it takes 2 to fit me in! I know what you where thinking and shame on you! LOL
I brought 2 booths because I’ll have my assistant at my loan booth and I will be standing next to a life size BEFORE Banner of me! And the live me had better look a lot better by then! MORE MOTIVATION!
Lastly, I’m creating this site for yet more motivation. As I make the change, I hope to share this journey to a better, healthier, slimmer me with you! Feel free to leave me a message or comment on the recipes. I’ll take lots of pictures as I cook so you can follow along. I’m not up to video just yet LOL. But soon!
