It’s not a good morning. Made a bad food decision, paying a painful cost today. My weight is up. Trying to live a normal life while dieting is BS.
This weekend my husband and I drove two hours to have lunch with my family. We met at Carrabba’s. I made one bad food choice.
This morning my weight is UP 1.3 pounds. Over damn night. No longer in Ketosis. I am hungry like nobody’s business. Tough day ahead.
Here is my weight chart snapshot this morning. Distressing.
My daily variations are between 0.2 to 1.5 pounds. Up or down. I am looking for an overall downward trend despite the roller coaster nature of my weight loss. To meet my goal, I must weigh 160.0 pounds.
Back to bad decision making. I looked at the menu online before we arrived at the restaurant, so I was ready. I’m using the Keto diet to lose weight. Low carbs, high fat, high protein.
My order was:
Gin and tonic
Garlic and basil fries
For Keto, the order met the diet requirements… except for the potato fries. I did not resist the garlic fries. I did resist the much-desired ketchup on the fries.
I implemented my “only eat half of your food” diet protocol for the rest of the food.
I drank a 1/2 of the gin and tonic. Consumed 1/2 of the chicken soup.
Two of the six baby lamb chops were eaten. I consumed the entire plate of garlic fries and the grilled veggies.
I drank ice water for the rest of the meal.
I’m not in ketosis this morning because of the potatoes. Potatoes are a no, no, no, no. I knew that. No excuses.
Tomorrow is another day.
