Guarding Against Weight Loss Weariness

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ December 19, 2006

I’m back to 220 pounds again after a 3-pound GAIN this week

It’s TERRIFIC TUESDAY again here in Week 20 of The “30-In-30″ Weight Loss Challenge as we are almost through one of the toughest times of the year to keep your weight from going up, up, up! You have LESS THAN A WEEK LEFT to survive the Christmas 2006 temptation season before the new year comes to rescue you from holiday bliss. YOU CAN DO IT!

With two-thirds of “30-In-30″ behind us now, it’s time to make that big push in the final 10 weeks to reach your goal. If you are lagging behind the pace, then it’s time to step it up a notch or two. As it stands right now, I am EXACTLY on track with my original goal of one pound a week for the first twenty weeks.

But my weight has been doing some fluky things lately that are completely unexplainable from a dietary perspective. Does that frustrate you? You have been doing everything exactly right in your low-carb lifestyle, you haven’t cheated a bit, you’re exercising just as much as you always have, and yet the weight keeps bouncing up and down like a beach ball!

UGH UGH UGH! What the *&#$@ is going on?!?!

LOL! Actually, that’s exactly how I used to feel before I started my low-carb lifestyle. It was all about living in the moment for me and allowing my present circumstances to dictate my attitude about my success or failure on my “diet.” Oh, I’ve been so “bad” today, so I might as well just give up!

Do I REALLY need to tell you how dopey that is?!

Seriously, I was just talking with a respected controlled-carb advocate today about the qualities of people who have been able to successfully lose weight and keep it off forever. It’s amazing how people like this are able to do so well and not fall prey to the notion that losing weight is some mystical impossibility.
