I am a true to testimonial of how trying to manage busy Mommy life and maintain a low carb life style can be a challenge. I have tried many “diets” but I’ve found just changing the way I eat and cut out all the sugary carbs my body responds best. So once again I’m on the low carb journey. I believe everyone has to find what works for them. So if I know what works for me then why do have a problem staying on track? By the 6 month mark and fall back into my bad habits. I have been successful several times and losing 60 to 100 pounds each time. I am a Mom of three crazy little monkeys and all three were here with 6 years 😳 and they were all big babies 9.11, 11.7 and 10.12. So that added to the weight gain each time also, thankfully I have never had any health concerns being heavy through my life.
Kids can be a great excuse for not eating the way your body responds best. It is way easier to grab a few packs of crackers, chips or stop for fast food. I’ve learned over time that it’s ok to throw items for myself in the snack bag. If I have almonds or cheese sticks or just something to snack on while I’m out and about I’m less likely to get off track. There are 5 staple snacks that I like to have on hand to cover basis for a SNACK ATTACK…..you know what I’m talking about.
- Nuts! snack mix – almonds,walnuts, sunflower seeds, pecans – energy boost
- String cheese 😉 the name says it all..haha!
- Pork rinds, not everyone’s fave but hey this is my list, switch it up 🙂
- Sugar free Jello and whipped cream, so yummy
- Low Carb chocolate ice cream, you know for those chocolate attacks.
I will update my progress through this next weight loss journey. 😉
