Today, in the Dollar General store I was picking up snacks to put in my young sons snack pack. He is thin and very active. Still doing my low carbohydrate diet, I feel pretty good being on it for a few days. This snack isle made my pupils dilate. These foods are like a drug. Just the smell was intoxicating.
A couple times I almost bought something delightful, and what stopped me is how wonderful I feel when I see on the urine test strip for ketosis, that I am in a light ketosis. I just do not want to ruin it with a temptation or impulse. It is a good feeling when you can stop, arrest the temptation, and go the other direction.
The scale is going down, I look forward to Tuesdays official weigh in, then it will have been seven days. It is my goal to do 21 days, and possibly six weeks.
I would probably be in an higher degree of fat loss if I did not have the shell with the taco, or the refried beans mixed in with the taco meat. Home made tacos. The fiber does a person good though especially when on a high protein diet. We do eat a lot of vegetables. The diet is working very well, and although I could lose more, faster, I felt I needed to have my dinner that way.
Determination pays off as we continue to imagine our goal realized.
In summary, do not let a meal, or a momentary temptation ruin all your hard work. It is like a good marriage, it stays good because we have invested in our love and the relationship. Temptations are not to be considered.
