All I know is that I'm feeling better. My weight is steady, it's not dropping like I want it to, but I'm feeling better. I'm guessing that if I took out my sabotaging cheats, my plan would work to lose weight.

I'm getting so much done around here. I'm taking my thyroid medicine like I'm supposed to (which is a feat in itself) along with krill oil. I've been doing that for a while and feeling better, but ever since I started having a Nutribullet every morning, I've been feeling much better.

So, my plan is to continue enjoying them even though they are higher in carbs and balance them with everything else lower carb and whole food. I do plan to get them more veggie oriented, which will help a lot with the carb issue, but I believe in baby steps. Why? Because every time I try to make big changes, I get overwhelmed and fall off the wagon for a LONG period of time.

So to reiterate for myself: No less than 1200 cal and no more than 1800 cal. Nutribullet for breakfast with a protein every morning. Veggies and meat for lunch and low carb dinner. (Dinner calories dependent on level of net carbs). I'm going to enjoy my Matcha Tea which doesn't require a sweetener. And the kicker, Water, Water, Water!

Even if I don't lose weight, at least I will feel better and isn't that what it's all about anyway?

I've done Atkins and been very successful, but once getting off that ride, it has been extremely hard for me to go back. I also, wasn't doing it very healthy especially at the end. I have ended up dealing with kidney stones which may or may not be related to my diet. I needed more non-meat and cheese food.

I got a Nutribullet for Christmas and I love it. I'm getting my daily intake of fruits and veggies and it's enjoyable! So, I may be doing Atkins, more like the OWL phase.

I'm trying to keep my carb intake around 50 and 40 of those have to be from low-carb fruits and veggies. I'm trying to come off of artificial sweeteners so 10 of those carbs are from my sugar in the raw for my coffee or tea.

I'm concerned that I may not lose weight if I'm taking in so many carbs and still enjoying the smorgasbord of meat and dairy so, I'm also using calorie restriction.

I'm aiming for 1500 calories a day. No less than 1200 and no more than 1800. I need wiggle room or I end up in poor dieting habits and extreme behaviors.

I've lost just over 3 lbs. in the last two days. I'm hoping it's because of the path I have chosen and not because of the massive poo last night!
