I’m starting over – this blogging thing. I quit last year because there are so many LCHF blogs out there, I wasn’t sure there was much point in keeping up. I’ve decided I need to do it for me, though.
I’m still a huge LCHF fan, and I still regularly read the blogs on the right over there. Year two is turning out to be harder than year 1 was, though. Actually, It was more like the first 6 months. Then the holidays came. I decided to be much less strict between Thanksgiving and Christmas (which includes my birthday.) I didn’t want to give up dressing with my turkey, or birthday cake, or PIE! The plan was to get back on plan in January.
It was harder to get back than I expected. And then we had some family health crises with the accompanying stress. And so the cravings for all those bad carbs came back and here it is August and I’m still not back into the swing of things.
So, I’m starting over! And I’m going to blog to help me stay on plan. And to share the real struggles. Many of the blogs I read talk about how great things are (as I did a year ago.) But sometimes it’s not so great – at least not for me.
I don’t miss bread. I’m happy without cereal and even pasta. But donuts?! And cookies?! And the other worst-of-the-worst junk foods. I have a terrible sweet tooth and it hasn’t miraculously gone away.
But I feel better when I’m eating low carb and I’d like to re-lose the pounds I’ve regained in the past 8 months. So, I’m starting over! I’d love for you to come along!
