Default Back to Basics

Hi all,

I'm not exactly new here and not new to low carb. I started my journey a long time ago...longer than I will admit ....and settled into my WOL. It has suited me well but the last couple of years, I let things creep back in that don't suit my personal biochemistry. That seemed to gain momentum given our recent COVID situation and too much "comfort" coming from foods. I know better...I work in integrative medicine and I know what a slippery slope this can be on so many levels.

So, about 7 weeks ago I stepped on the scale, licked my wounds and went back to low carb/high fat Paleo. I'm down 11.3lbs and would like to lose another 22lbs.
I see the old pattern of stall, stall, weight up a pound or two and then a whoosh. As long as I keep the pattern in mind...I can keep perspective! However, coming here and seeing support and feedback from others also helps me stay on track so I thought I'd stop in and say hello and connect with others.

Welcome back. It's good that you are catching it before it is too far out of hand and it sounds like you've been doing a good job of reigning things in. Keep it up!

My scale does the same. UGH!
I've got about 15lb of Quarantine Chub to toss myself.
Welcome back!
