RoundIsAShape's Journal, 24 November 2012

Week two and all is well. I was a big disappointed by today's weigh in at first, but I need to keep a couple of things in mind. I have been exercising and more active in general, so there is a good chance that some fat loss was countered by muscle gain. Also three pounds is still good. If I was able to maintain that rate, I could still lose 150 in a year.

Again, the main challenge was finding enough variety during low-carb days. It still takes quite a bit of time to work out menus for the day. It IS getting easier though by using FatSecret's options for copying and saving foods/meals as we build up more meal history.

Surprisingly, the hardest part about not eating after dinner wasn't hunger, it was just the desire to have some kind of snack. I'm not convinced that having a low cal healthy snack at night would be a problem, but for the wife's sake, I'll stick to the *NO* food after dinner rule for now at least.

One of the most important things in weight loss is to keep realistic weight loss expectations. Any loss will take you to goal. You may have weeks of doing everything right and gain, and weeks of overeating and lose. You will have big and very small losses. It's all a part of the journey. The most important thing is to keep going and not let anything deter you. You are doing great.

We're doing great! We have stuck to that no eating after dinner rule and I'm pretty proud of us :) Not sure if it's getting any easier but we know we can do it now. Thank so much for staying with me on this, would not be able to do it without you ;)
