It's been just over a week now since I started refocusing on my health and weight loss and really watching what I've been eating. I have gone back to low carb eating and it has made a difference. I posted last week that my weight was 463. This morning it was 455. 8 pounds down. I am very happy about this and it's a great motivator to see that things are moving in the right direction. Of course I expected this. I always lose a good amount the first and second week of switching to a low carb following the Atkins diet.
It's 3 and 4 weeks in that I really start struggling. I start struggling because that's when my food cravings kick into high gear. I want the fruit and the grains at this point. This time will be different. I am going to stay strong and stay focused on my goals. I know I can do this. I have to look both at doing the right next thing as well as at the long term goals.
That said, I need to start working on the second part of the attack on getting healthy which is to get moving. I've set a bunch of goals for the year and so far I haven't started working towards those goals. I plan on starting to do that this weekend. Even if the weather is as wet as they are forecasting, I can still get my butt moving.
