Default 2 weeks in

I am 2 weeks in and have dropped 16 pounds, I am starting to feel better so I hope to start getting in some light exercise soon . I haven't had any real problems with wanting to break off plan, I did discovery some bread & butter pickles at Walmart that are made with Splenda, low carb and oh so good those have helped alot . I actually look forward to Mondays now since that is my weight in day, some times I do get discouraged by thinking how far I have to go compared to how close I was back about 10 years ago when I did low carb but fell off. Not this time I am in it for the long haul. Happy Monday everyone.

soonernort - one thing a friend said to me after she had gone back to a poor way of eating - I hadn't seen her in over a year. She said that she had gotten discouraged because she was losing at a very slow rate, and felt it wasn't worth the effort. Then she said that if she had kept it up, even with the slow weight loss, she would have been at her goal. It kind of drove home that you won't ever get where you're headed if you just don't keep going. BEST OF LUCK, and congrats on a fantastic 2 weeks!

Nice loss on your first two weeks! The long haul worked for me. It is the only way to go. Getting through the first few months is the hardest. After a year of eating clean it is much easier. After two years you will be a pro and well trained for how you need to eat. Eating LC will feel natural and that other diet you used to eat will have lost its luster. Go low carb to get your life back. Stay low carb to keep it.

Good Job!! I am also new here (re)starting, this time for good...seems overwhelming but I think if we aim for mini-goals, keep the bigger picture in mind, we will be successful!

A friend of mine goes to WeightWatchers but is losing weight hand over fist; much faster than anyone else.... but she hasn't told them she's not sticking to any of their advice but is on a LCHF way to live....

Everyone there keeps asking how she does it...
She's about 3 lbs off target weight, and says she will leave after that.

Keep going.
If she can do it, trust me: so can you.

I always meant to try and combine WW with LCHF. I think that will be after I actually get off my butt (literally) and start an exercise routine. WW works really well, but if LCHF works for your particular body chemistry, nothing can beat it!
