A month ago, I put up a post about my low carb diet. It was really scary for me to post up, just cuz it’s hard to talk about myself. Especially when it’s about my physical appearance. I’ve always felt insecure about myself until recently. Even when I was a size 2 I was insecure, go figure right?
Going on a low-carb diet is definitely not easy. I’ve had to make some lifestyle adjustments, I’ve had to ignore my cravings and replace it with water, I’ve had to deal with my body causing havoc on me. It was really difficult for me in the beginning. There were so many moments when I wanted to give in and quit. The first two weeks were like hell. I got dizzy all the time, really dizzy. It got so bad to the point that I had to lean against a table at work just to keep the room from spinning. The room wouldn’t stop spinning for 45 minutes. My body kept fighting with me and kept trying to tell me I needed carbs. But I kept fighting back. I didn’t give in, and it’s been so worth it.
After those 2 weeks passed, my body has adjusted to my new carb intake. I’ve learned to eat regularly in small portions and often. Thanks to the MyFitnessPal app, I’ve gained so much knowledge about calories and carbs. But more on that later 🙂 I’ve also learned patience, determination, and hard work can get you farther than you ever thought you could.
So as of today, I am 10 pounds less and 1 dress size smaller than when I started. I’m looking forward to shedding more dress sizes and sharing some recipes Charlie and I have come up with with all of you!
