Newly found motivation

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

As I walked away from a conversation with one of my best friends this morning, I realized I had just stumbled onto new and different kind of motivation.

I've been doing Low Carb for several years and have seen some awesome results...when I stick with it. My resolve to "stick with it" comes and goes in waves, and therefore, I am now dealing with regain and I feel "stuck". A self inflicted plateau if you will.

Anyway, I have one great friend in particular that kinda... scrunches her nose at a high fat diet. haha She doesn't say anything, but her facial expressions when I mention "high fat" tells me everything. haha It hit me as I was walking away from her this morning that I'm certainly not doing anything to change her mind. My weight certainly does not reflect someone who is sticking to a healthy eating lifestyle.

So... my new motivation is convincing my friend that Low Carb, High Fat DOES work. I can be a little bit stubborn when someone tells me I can't do something, so I'm going to us that stubborness to prove others wrong. haha

I know some of you might be saying I need to do this for me, and I totally get that and agree. But... sometimes we just have to grab some stubborn motivation and get at it! I'll take it when I get it!

    I say grab the bull by the horns and run with it! Whatever works for you is what works for you, everyone is different, for some of us we need someone saying can't, for some of us we need someone saying can! As long as you are moving forward and doing what is healthy for you, do it!

    Low carb good fat is my kind of diet especially being a diabetic. At my age I no longer share my diet with family or friends, as I don't need their help or approval nor do I need their stares or comments when I am eating. I am my own person.

    Motivation is hard to find so when you have a 'motivator' that helps I say go for it! emoticon emoticon
