This is crazy... time has flown by on this diet. I'm one day away from Cycle 3 and I'm actually nervous. It was so much easier just removing carbs from my diet, but introducing them certainly makes it harder to drop the weight.
I've had to up my exercise to at least 30mins everyday to lose weight (it's fast lately, about a half pound each day), yet I'm worried for when everyday is a carb day. I think the real issue before was my timing. I ended up having some carbs at night (since we all eat dinner together, which included rice/potatoes, etc.). I plan to be strict with my timing, and save the carbs from last night's dinner for the lunch the next day.
I'm also doing lots of running (thankfully I love exercise!) so hopefully the weight loss continues. Nothing feels worse than being stuck! I'll admit I'm unusually hard on myself since I'm so scared of becoming the "fat me" that I was just 34 days ago...
I (and everyone doing this) need to stay strong and not let the little hicups and plateaus discourage me. So what if I sneak in a chip or two? Sure, I should work at not giving into my cravings, but beating myself up over a chip is not healthy either. Hopefully, with the support of this forum, my fiance, and my friends/family I can get rid of my snacking habits for good (or simply try a carrot next time!).
