It’s the day after Christmas and I have a week to go before the new year. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were absolutely filled with abusing myself with food. And again, it is one week before the first of the year. It’s a week that I could enjoy all those foods I thought I had been missing out on. But I have decided not to do that. I have decided to get started on my weight loss goals before the new year.
Why have I decided to do this? Well, the simple truth is I am sick of unhealthy food. As many of you who frequent my blog know, I am a big proponent of a low-carb, high-fat diet which included scheduled cheat days. Cheat days are for both health and psychological reasons. And through this method, I have lost more than 60 pounds. However, during this season, I have just had too many high-carb foods and I can feel it in my body. I feel sick and am having a difficult time thinking clearly.
Being sick like this has brought one thought into my mind. That is: I cannot believe I use to eat like this all the time! When I was over weight, most of my meals were largely made up of carbohydrates and it did not bother me at all! Now, I can really feel it after just one full day!
So I am back to the diet that makes me feel and look great! My challenge to you is to start early too! You do not need to pig-out this week just because it’s a week before the new year. Start now! It’s worth it!
