113g carbs today and I think I might be in ketosis. I’ve got that weird metallic walnut taste in my mouth again and it’s only ever happened when I’ve tried low carb.
I’ve recorded a deficit for my 4th consecutive day. It’s getting easier for me as my appetite has died somewhat. Towards the end of my holiday in Portugal it was becoming increasingly difficult to keep my eating under control. By the end I was barely recording deficits at all and it was down to me devourinf so much fucking sugar. Eating sugar only makes me want more and it can easily contribute to a downward spiral if I don’t keep it under control.
Down to 190.5lb today
It’s a little bit surreal that I’m losing weight this easily. It almost feels like I’m cheating. Part of me wants to stop and enjoy food again but the rational side wants to continue and establish a new weight goal that will make it even easier for me to run.
I can have all of the Toffee Crisp McFlurry’s once my training for the Isle Of Wight challenge is over.
Every pound I lose is another I don’t have to carry with me in the Isle of Wight challenge. I’m trying to keep that in my mind to help with the chocolate impulses. I can either enjoy the junk food now or feel great when I’m closing in one the finishing line.
My recent weight loss has happened thanks to accountability. If I hadn’t decided to post my progress every day on this blog then I’d have given up trying to lose weight long ago and just accepted my fate as a slightly overweight plodder who doesn’t have a fucking clue what he’s talking about.
Only a few more weeks until the clocks go forward here in London and the weather always changed for the best after that. I love running in the Spring when it isn’t too hot. My long runs are always excellent.
Let’s hope that I can get out for one tomorrow. It will stop me from sitting around the house and eating my feelings away.
