I’ve been mostly good, but there were a few bad days. It happens.
People are starting to comment that I look like I’ve lost weight!! I haven’t officially weighed myself yet because I want to see a big number on that scale, and maybe fit into smaller jeans first? We shall see. I’m so curious as to how much I’ve lost! Even my black stretchy yoga pants seem bigger!
Going out to dinner is getting easier (yay steak), and I rewarded myself with a professional massage and steam room instead of a cheat day, which is a HUGE step for me, since food is always my reward. But that massage was fucking awesome! I’m still all relaxed and pain free from it. :)
Yes. Yes I can. I wasn’t surprised that what I did overeat were low carb tortillas, I’ve always had problems controlling myself around carby foods, and now apparently, their impostors. It’s good those things have so much fiber in them (and cheese on top of them), because it didn’t throw me out of ketosis, but bad because I haven’t overeaten anything since the day after xmas. I thought it was the low carbing that was keeping me from overeating, but no, it wasn’t.
I forgot how uncomfortable it feels to roll around in bed, not being able to sleep because you’re cradling a giant food baby, ugh. I know why it happened. I cooked too much, and I still compulsively eat everything on my plate. I knew they wouldn’t be good as leftovers, and they were too spicy to give to the dog, so down they went.
I’m kind of glad that it happened when it did. Since xmas my stomach has shrunk enough that I cannot eat as much as I used to, and I although I have high carb crap in the house, I still chose to eat what was “allowed” and nothing more. I needed to be reminded that I will always have to limit the amount of food that I prepare at any one time. And that I need to be careful about what carb substitutes I think are acceptable to have in my diet, as apparently even they can still trigger my old eating behavior.
I can feel the progress doing keto has allowed me, because I didn’t carry that mistake into today. That is something that would have spiraled out of control for days on a high carb intake. I’m so thankful for the mental aspect of this diet!!
No, I’ve never heard of that before, thanks for the info! I’ve made my own jerky before, so this sounds easily do-able for me :)
