When it comes to food, WHEN is it not a struggle. I would say “when” you are free of sugars and starches. But that’s not always the case. I’ve been free for sometime and yet there has been plenty of struggling recently.
Ok, it’s be real honest here, I don’t miss the sweet stuff or the bread even at this point . I struggle when I don’t take the time to put structure in place.
Without structure I overeat. I don’t cheat, I go back for seconds. I check “hunger and full” at the door and simply can eat til done. Structure puts limits and restraint upon me. I do better there. 5 years ago I was deathly afraid of restraint and limits, I’d eaten without limits for so long and was so obese! That’s the scariest part of dieting, FACING limits and boundaries. But on a Lowcarb Keto approach, soon that will in fact, set you free! Without hunger and cravings you will find yourself adjusting well to limitation.
Listen, since we’re being honest, we KNOW when there is a struggle, we’re the first to know. We know it and we pout that it’s hard. Often we quit way too early in the game. All because it’s a struggle.
I’m not going back to obesity. To guilt and shame. I’m going to act at the first sign of struggle!
Here are 3 tips.
#1· ADMIT you are struggling and locate the struggle
· #2 CALL YOURSELF OUT to your community
· #3 TAKE your NEXT STEP FORWARD then Grab community and be accountable!
I’ve been feeling out of sorts, and overeating. I’m struggling because I lack structure that really helps me. Once I saw it, knowing myself I basically called myself out and called out to a diet friend. Then I took the BEST step and the next step forward, “I will start a 10day challenge TOMORROW.” It’s friday, I’m not waiting to stop the struggle and start the structure on Monday, I’m starting tomorrow. Today I organized a plan and tonight I will organize food and WRITE IT DOWN…I will reach out to my DB (diet buddy) tomorrow and accomplish my mission!
Learn to move through the struggles. Learn to over come and hold on to your goals. Don’t give up! Do NOT GIVE UP!
