The Slippery Slope

Happy December everyone! It's the first day of the last month of the year. Three months from now will mark the one year anniversary of my decision to go low carb. I am ashamed to admit that I have not been good at all. October was a complete disaster and November was full of conscious off plan eating. I indulged myself a lot and no matter how hard I tried to go back on plan I couldn't because the cravings would set in and that will be that.

So today I am going to try to go back in ketosis. I haven't been feeling well and I blamed it all to the sleepless nights but in reality my day to day health has gone back to before LC when I would be tired most of the day, be a little fuzzy and distracted. Not to mention short tempered and depressed.

It would be typical to start anew in the New Year but I don't want to see pictures of me this Christmas looking and feeling exactly like last Christmas. Earlier this year I wanted to change and I was successful for the most part. I'm gonna make December the month where I go back on track.

It's never too late.

Sorry I just saw this post now. I have been experiencing the same thing, since right before Thanksgiving. I'm afraid that when I go back to the doctor, my A-1c number is going to show the damage. The scale certainly does!

But one of the things I've promised myself is not to be so hard on myself. Setbacks are bound to be a natural part of the process, and getting back on the path will be hard every time. But why make it harder with self-criticism? I just know I've done it before, and can start over now.

I'm curious to know how your journey has gone during December. For me, this is always a month where I hardly even bother trying, between the holdiays and all the family birthdays. So I'm starting over today. So far, about 15 net grams (it's 4 pm). You? Hang in there!

Today is my first day back as well. I'm hanging on. Been feeling hot then cold all day. But I will push through. We can do it!
