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.
