3 weeks with no cheats challenge

Between my birthday and then thanksgiving I have been off plan more than on for the last 2 weeks!

I am going to challenge myself (and anyone who wants to join) to stay on plan for 3 straight weeks. I haven't done that in about a year. I heard that it takes 21 days to form a habit do this 3 week challenge should help kickstart weight loss and keep me on plan after even if I have a day off.

I will post my weight tomorrow morning and see how much I gained after 2 BIG thanksgiving dinners and lots of bad meals!

Hi! I haven't been here in a while, but I've gotten back on low carb and have lost 15 pounds so far. I'm going to start tomorrow as well. I like eating the same thing every day because there is less margin for error. Breakfast I will do 2-3 eggs and either bacon or sausage. Lunch will be a seasoned grilled chicken breast or two. Dinner will be browned ground beef. I'll scramble or hard boil some eggs for a snack. Next week I am ordering taylor ham (AKA pork roll) which will be my snack from the time it arrives (I'm from Jersey, it's a staple).

I walk 5 miles a day as well. I'm not one for weighing myself, but I will be trying on my clothes at the end of the 3 weeks.

I am joining you. It has been a long time since I pulled 3 weeks off. Maybe if I join you I will feel accountable.
I will weigh in tomorrow to get a number up.

I find sometimes measurements are nicer than the scale anyways. The scale doesn't move but my measurements seem to consistently go down, so I do both but I only record my measurements once a month on the 27th but I may do just my hips tomorrow just to see where I am at the beginning and the end of the challenge

Also, Congrats on the 15!

It has been forever since I have done 3 full weeks but I have no dinners or bdays so now is the time! I do have 2 parties to go to but I find it easy to avoid the snack food ( or atleast I did in the past ) and seeing they are both the last weekend of the challenge I am hoping I will have willpower by then

217.2 this morning. As of today I have been on plan for one week already and l have lost 8.8 lbs. Doing this 3 week challenge will make it a month on plan for me. It will be the first time I pulled that off, and a miracle.

You can do it! It is definitely easier when there are no special occasions to tempt you. I do not have anything planned until my daughters Birthday in November. Knowing my luck something will pop up to test me.

The things that always gt me are famy dinners because I don't want to be rude and not eat what they made me, I have a lot of food allergies and I am picky so they usually make something that I will and can eat.

If something does come and we have to go we should check in and we can make sure we only have a meal off plan and not a whole day (or week)

Thats awesome! Last year I used to be able to lose that much in a week but now my body seems to be on to me and I don't lose as fast!

Welcome! By the time it gets to your anniversary you may have less of n appetite and that will make it easier! That happened to me for my bday but free 3 dinners and 1 lunch it was back but it's somewhat comforting that 1 could have 1 meal off plan without ruining everything.

That's what I'm hoping!

Starving all of a sudden today (day 3 on plan). Hoping ketosis kicks in soon.

I posted last night, I have no idea where it went!

I had breakfast a little late today. I am going without my coffee for these 3 weeks because I can't have cream and Splenda.

I had 3 eggs with pepper and 4 pieces of sausage with a glass of water.

You should be in today or tomorrow. The first few days are so awful. I need to remember that when I think of cheating.

Stillmans and giving up coffee. That is hard. If you find you can't do it, look into getting some ezsweetz for sweetener. My husband refuses to give up his coffee. He uses it and a tiny amount of half n half in his coffee. He only drinks one cup so it hasn't hurt his dieting at all.

The nap helped!

I woke up from my nap wandered down to my basement to the deep freeze and opened it and was hit with a terrible smell! Everything had thawed and that is where I keep ALL my meat so now I have to clean the deep freeze and live off eggs until tomorrow when I can get to costco and restock all my chicken breasts.

Luckily my bf had taken 1 chicken breast out of the deep freeze and put it in the upstairs freezer so I made that for dinner.

So I am sad that I have to buy all new meat when I wads all stocked up but grateful for that one chicken breast

Yay for the nap and Boo for the broken freezer. We stock up on meats at Costco and would be out a lot of money if that happened.

I am off to bed. I will check in tomorrow.

Down 1 pound this morning.

This time around, I am actually enjoying being on plan. I feel so much better mentally and physically. When I am off plan I feel so bleh. I enjoy the food while I am in the moment of eating it but then the bloat, discomfort, guilt and self loathing kicks in. It is SO not worth it.

I am hoping to lose 12 pounds during this 3 weeks. That will put be back to where I was a couple of months ago, before the massive binge fest.

What does no cheats mean to you? Does it mean staying strictly on plan? Does it mean have very low carbs but allowing some veggies when needed? Does it mean low fat atkins style eating?

For me it would be that some veggies OR some fat are allowed if say I get invited to a lunch or dinner or if I feel like I will binge if I don't have a salad, lettuce really isn't that bad its just not stills, sometimes I have a piece or 2 of bacon... shocking I know! haha

If I have something like a salad or bacon or some cheese I make sure its a slice of cheese or a piece of bacon or a handful of salad. I don't consider those a cheat (a block of cheese and pack of bacon on the other hand although delicious would be a cheat! haha) but I know some would, what do you think?

Down another pound. I could get used to this. 11 more to get back to my pre pig fest weight.

I have been eating a lot of tilapia fried in a little butter with salt pepper and onion powder. yummy! Eggs do not agree with my stomach so I have been eating the tilapia for breakfast. I space it out with turkey burgers. I get in about 100 ounces of half strength crystal light. everyday also. I also eat a dill pickle as a night snack. It is 4 carbs but worth it. It isn't slowing down my weight and it gives me something crunchy to eat.

Cheating or going off plan for me is anything that isn't carb free meat. When I am struggling I will add cheese and fat. It slows me down but doesn't stop me. I have always had a 5 carb limit for the day. Most days I would never hit that. I guess anything more than that is going off plan to me. (ignore the fact that I just told you I eat a pickle a day)

I hope that is my mentality after these 3 weeks!

I am having cravings today and yesterday so I am eating lots of protein so no loses but once these cravings are gone and I am eating normal portions again I know the scale will go down.

10 more pounds and I will be the same weight I was last year at this time, my maintenance from last time around!
