Day 9 LCHF

I'm down 4 lbs. But it feels like 10!
So weird when I'm 50 lbs overweight that 4 lbs made such a huge difference! My pants are looser, my face is noticeably thinner, and my stomach has shrunk so much that I'm wearing a shirt today that I wouldn't wear before because it hugged my belly too much!
This is just what I needed to stay motivated!!

Nice work.

I bet your feeling of lightness comes from getting the carbs out of your system.
You're on your way to becoming an efficient fat-burning machine.
And I'd rather lose a pants size than 15 pounds.

Usually I have that "lighter" feeling before the scale catches up w/me. Clothes are the best tellers of weight loss, imo. They don't lie. Looser is looser, and there's no arguing w/it. Also, never underestimate the loss of even one pound, let alone 4 pounds---think of it in terms of lbs of hamburger on the counter. It's a good loss, and your clothes know it too.

LC is a healthy way to eat that reduces bloating as well as fat. You can see the results in clothes sizes often before significant weight loss. I feel much better when off the carbs and definitely look better. Course at my age that ain't saying a lot.
