low carb

I started eating low carb today. I'm supposed to stay within 30-40g of net carbs a day (carbs overall minus fiber) but I ate 56g net carbs. I would have been okay but I was really short on time and needed to eat something during my workout so I had a special k protein bar which was 19g net carbs. Not good. I kept my calories just under 1,400 though so I'm pleased with that. Hopefully I will start seeing results....

I have a 25 hour shift starting I'm going to need to pack all my food after I get back from the gym. 

The low carb thing is so tough, but if I see results I will be happy. Maybe this is what I need. I hope I do better tomorrow. I need to stay under 40g.

Sars are you struggling like i'm struggling????I sit about 172 ish and i can't get any lower to save my soul. I run, i lift i watch what i eat but i'm just miserable eating fewer calories than about 1500-1600. sigh......But i know until i change that nothing is gonna change. I have to learn to be happy eating smaller amounts. I think going lo carb is a good option. I have my fingers crossed it works for you. Sometimes i think you and i follow the same path as we lose and we get stuck, then we lose and then we get stuck. Uuugh...Take care girl Jinx!
