my experiences of following a low carb diet

Still holding at 59.2kg


Well it’s now 22nd Jan and I am still stuck at 59.2kg.

Better than going up and I did have my birthday on the 20th so all in all, pretty good going!

Downward movement on the scales!!!!

It felt good stepping on the scales today and seeing this result. Down to 59.7kg! Not bad for straight after the festive season!!

This time last year I was around 63kg, so doing a lot better in 2013 already!

Scales on 1st January 2013

Scales on 1st January 2013

Starting weight 60.4kg
Target weight 58kg

I haven’t written in this blog for a long time but today is the first day of 2013 and seems like a good day to start up again.  I have joined a New Year Challenge to get my weight down to 58kg by August 2013 and keep it there once I have recahed the target.

I am still following a low carb diet and am now also following a low carb Paleo/Primal plan.  This means that I avoid all grains, processed foods, artificial sweeteners, soy and dairy.

I did have a little bit of a slip up over Christmas – a few chocolates and few too many glasses of red wine – but hey, back on the straight and narrow from now on!  I paid the price for those chocolates with a new crop of acne cysts.  That is what happens when I eat sugar and dairy containing foods.  A few minutes of pleasure for a crop of cysts that take over a month to clear up – it’s just not worth it!
