Obviously it was a good month with 10 pounds being shed. I've settled in to this new lifestyle of eating low carb and avoiding sugar. When I started this change I was afraid that maybe I was a sugar addict and that any small amount would send me right back on the old path. It turns out that's not the case for me as I've had small amounts of sugar here and there in August. Each time I was not compelled to simply abandon my plan and easily went right back to it the next day.
All in all I'm in a pretty good place right now. In July I had fallen off the wagon with the smoking but recently I quit again and switched to vaping.
As for the alcohol, I barely touch it anymore. The need to drink on the weekends just isn't there.
Mentally I feel great. I might not get to 100 pounds this year, but I'm definitely on the right path. Someday I'll get there!
Stay Strong Folks!
