Starting to feel alive again

I’ve been doing low carb for a week now. If you read my last blog you know I’m doing it to reduce my sugar intake due to inflammation.

I’m happy to report I’ve lost five pounds. The scale actually kept going down and stayed down. Usually, I weigh myself most mornings and my weight fluctuates one-three pound difference. It’s very discouraging. I only went up a few ounces the day after cheat day. It came right back down with one day of eating right.

Finally, I’m making progress. I’m not only seeing a weight difference but I’ve felt so much better. I have not had this much energy and clarity since March. I kinda keep a monthly diary and that’s how I know it’s been a long time since I felt this good.

I haven’t been depriving myself of anything either. I find a new way to eat the food I like and for the not so healthy ones I just cut the portion size way down.

So, if your struggling with inflammation, weight gain, bloating and pain. I do suggest going low carb.

I had small serving of cheese sticks from Arby’s on a regular day. It took a lot of my fat and carbs for the day but it satisfied my craving and I just made sure the rest of the day I ate only healthy food.

My cheat day was another story lol. It was Father’s Day and I made peanut butter fudge. I ate three servings. I made sure to get my workout in that day!

It’s okay to splurge once in awhile but I got to where everyday I was splurging. I wasn’t mindful of what or how much I was eating. Late night snacking was turning my body into mush.

I know I can lose weight but I’ve got to learn that I’m someone that can’t diet. I am going to have to stay focused all the time or I’ll fall quickly back into bad habits. I found that out the hard way.

I want to lose the weight once more and not find it again after the holidays.

My struggle is real but so is my will to live.

Thanks so much for reading, and God Bless!

My Crazy Life……

It’s been two and 1/2 months since my last blog. I think I was sick with allergies for about 5 weeks. Then I became so tired from not sleeping good. School let out and fixed that problem. Then here in the last few weeks I’ve felt blah. Turned a year older and my body fell apart even more.

Going to the DR. is a big no for me until I know I can’t fix the problem myself first. I know I have IBS and I also have a lot of inflammation going on. Some of my inflammation is from being out of alignment. Going to the chiropractor to take care of that tomorrow. Then I did a lot of reading and I do believe food is my problem. I love carbs and things high in carbs has lots of sugar. Then you have the carbs turning to sugar as well. Which means my body is getting too much sugar. I honestly believe this is my problem . I can’t lose weight and keep it off, I stay bloated which leads to me being aggravated and not too much fun to be around. My sugar has never been too high but it doesn’t mean it’s not affecting me other ways.

So, I am now giving low carb a shot. With a cheat day once in awhile because I love Italian food. I started yesterday and within 24 hours I already feel 50% better.

I’ll let you know in a few weeks if it works for me!

Thanks for reading and God Bless!
