Low Carb Day 4

Well, here I am 4 days in to this low carb thing and I must say it has finally gotten easier.  My first day I did really good because I took a nap when I got home because of the awful withdrawal headache.  Tuesday was bad because I gave in and had 3 cookies lol.  Wednesday was pretty good.  I stayed under 20g of carbs.  Today has been really easy, so I'm getting the hang of it.  So far this week I have lost 3.6 pounds which now brings me to 256.8!  This is the lowest I have ever been.  I had originally set my wedding date goal to be 250 so I'm definitely going to break that because I still have over 2 months until then!  I'm really excited about the weight loss but without a doubt this is tough.  I'm hoping to lose a good 10 pounds or so throughout this low carb eating over the next two weeks.  But honestly, after two weeks I don't think I will be able to make it anymore.  Have you ever noticed how EVERYTHING you like, or anything that's good is full of carbs?  Crazy huh?  The things I like are full of things that are bad for my midsection.  Figures....  So, only two weeks of this then it's back to the good stuff for me!  It's definitely working and I applaud those who can stick to it religiously, but this old girl can't do it forever!  I need to have some kind of bread or something.  Even an whole weat roll or whole weat pasta would be great right now but I can't have it on the low carb.  Anyway, I know this is short but I'm at work and the kids are in the gym watching a movie as a reward for having SAT's every day this week.  I'm supposed to be doing lesson plans....but we won't tell them that!! I hope you're all having a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend just as much as I am!!


  1. I'm in total awe of you low-carbers. I can't even imagine it, even for 4 days!

  2. Good luck....low carb does work - I just can't maintain it. I can't live without pizza. It's just not living. Ha!
