Weight: 154 lb
Transgressions: Exceeded veggie quota by 4.5 oz
Exercise: 90 minutes of horse grooming and trail riding
After lunch I was already over my veggie allotment by 4.5 oz. It’s the tomatoes. They’re heavy. Will have to cut back.
I disagree with those who say, “You’ll lose your desire for carbs after you’ve done the low-carb lifestyle for a while.” Is eight weeks enough? Not for me! Set me loose on an apple pie or Cinnabon and I’ll show you a desire for carbs.
Week 8 Recap
Weight is hovering around 154–155 for several weeks now. I doubt I’ll lose any more weight unless I exercise more or consciously cut back on calories, or both. It’s possible that simply monitoring my caloric intake is somewhat inhibitory, subconsciously. I see no health or vanity reason to shoot for a lower weight at this point.
