It will be a long day, I am having my IP snack earlier than usually. At least I can load up on veggies at dinner.
Hooray! I had basically the same meal the other night when I went out to eat for the 1st time. I had them hold the potato & give me extra veg

It is hard not to compare yourself with other people who are doing so well. I know I have to take in to consideration post meno, HRT and low thyroid so I will try to be kind to myself and move forward. Today is a new day and I'm feeling so tired - kind of like the first week on IP. Truly you do sabotage yourself when you go off the plan as it takes time to get back in to Ketosis. Here's to another week and to sticking with it. I just want to see results!!
Hang in there! I managed to sabotage myself on every diet I tried prior to this, and I am terrified that I won't be strong enough when I finally face a big temptation. We can do this!
