During the last week I’ve seen three people that work at my work that have lost a fair amount of weight. One man I had trouble recognising as he had a chubby face that has lost its chub and looked quite different. The other two people were still recognisable but just skinnier.
The man without the chub in face said he’d stopped eating all those bad carbs and because he’s done so well he is nearly at his goal weight.
I’ve cut down on my carb intake and have lost a bit of weight but if there’s a scrumptious piece of cake being offered to me, I’m hardly going to say no. Similarly, I like icecream and have found no low carb version of it that I like. For me, I’ve had to weigh up enjoying eating and not enjoying eating and I’ve chosen to enjoy eating but not be a complete fool about it.
It seems that the people whose weight has dropped off dramatically, as in the three people I mentioned earlier, a lot of discipline and sacrifice comes into play and I’m not ready for that.
