How I keep weight loss motivation & first week diet struggles!
Follow along and lose weight with me!
Highlights of my weight loss week!
I’ve started a simple ritual for staying motivated to eat unprocessed foods. It’s all about mindset for me. Our head directs every decision we make, so I feel it’s the most important part of my weight loss program.
I faced some challenges in my first couple of days. Getting organized has become my priority. I allowed myself to get too hungry, and almost slipped up due to lack of organization!
Getting off the carbs is a process! I explain how my body is adjusting to the new way of eating.
One of my biggest challenges is resisting the urge to criticize myself! Over the years I’ve discovered this nasty habit is the cause of my emotional eating. I subconsciously try to stuff my feelings down with junk food. So, while I’m focusing on a healthy diet, I also need to focus on being kind to myself.
The Bread I'm Using!
This is such a simple recipe, and so quick to make! It’s really filling, and if you roll it out flat before cooking, it’s also lower in calories.
My Quick Recipe Tips:
- Place the dough on a silicone matt and cover with clear plastic wrap before rolling it out. This makes it really easy to roll without sticking and mess! Then lift it with a spatula to transfer into a nonstick pan.
- To reduce the calories in this bread, I avoid using extra oil while cooking. For example; 1 tbsp of oil/butter contains about 120 calories (which I feel is too much to add to each slice).
- Make sure you drink plenty of water when cooking with psyllium husk! Psyllium naturally draws water from inside our gastrointestinal tract in order to bulk up. So you’ll need to have a big glass of water with this bread!
