Although my first post about my decision to lose weight was yesterday, today is actually the 12th day of the process. In that 12 days I’ve lost 13 pounds. Hells yes. That’s some pretty sweet shit. So I’m down to 323 pounds.
One might ask, how can you lose 13 pounds in 12 days? Low carb baby.
I know, I know. All those people that wished me well yesterday are now going to give me shit because I picked a method of losing weight that has a lot of flaws. I’m well aware of all the reasons low carb diets suck: you can regain the weight quickly once you stop, missing out on a lot of essential nutrients and vitamins, hair loss, bad breath, fatigue, smelly pee (no, really, my pee stinks, it’s like asparagus pee all day long). You name it, I’ve heard it. And I’m fine with all of them.
Here’s why I chose to lose weight with a low carb diet:
-I eat less – it’s really easy to load up on mashed potatoes, but it’s a hell of a lot tougher to eat a mountain of beef.
-I eat healthier – No more sugar is a good thing. I basically get to choose between hearty vegetables and meat, and most of the time to fill myself up, I’m eating a ton of vegetables.
-No more snacking – Well I snack now and then, but it’s a lot less often then I used to.
-I exercise more – When you see positive results almost immediately from exercising, it’s a lot easier to keep up.
And there are a 100 more reasons that I like low carb. My thought is this, the more weight I lose, the less I will want to eat and the easier it will be for me to exercise. Let me tell you, lugging around 336 pounds, even walking is difficult. If your house is on fire, you don’t start picking out new paint colors or furniture, you have to put the fire out first before you can work on the repairs. I’m simply in the process of putting the fire out in my life and I’m using low carb to do it.
