Back in February after a visit with my CDE, I went on a 30 day no carb diet and then started with a low carb diet after that. Within the first week I lost nearly 10 pounds and after a month I was down 17. I ended up dropping a total of 23 pounds, but then we decided to sell our house and that whole process threw me off of the diet.
I ended up having to eat out because people were walking through my house during dinner time and we didn’t want the house to smell like food or do anything to turn a potential buyer off.
After selling our home, we went to visit family in Pennsylvania for nearly 2.5 months. As you can imagine, there was a lot of bad eating and not much dieting.
We have now been back in Florida for a week and I began my gym trips yesterday as well as diet. It is just about impossible for me to be on a zero carb diet, but I try to eliminate as many as I can. That means lots of chicken and lots of non-starchy veggies in my near future.
I have set a weight loss goal of 50 pounds.
I actually want to lose more, and think that I will, but I don’t want to set an initial goal that is too lofty that I never reach it. But I also didn’t want to set a goal that was so small and obtainable that it’s not much of an accomplishment.
Well, here’s to the start of another new journey in life
