Whenever I have a goal to accomplish, I find it helpful to keep inspired. And I do that by connecting with others who are also doing a low carb diet like me.
So for my high-fat low carb diet daily inspiration, I do a few things.
First I weigh myself daily. Now some people feel that this isn’t a good thing as it can be frustrating because the scale can move up on some days. But for me, it keeps me motivated.
I have realized that the scale does go up, but it always goes down. The last two week my weight has been pretty consistent. It will go down 2 pounds, then up 1, then down 1, then down 1, then up 1, then down 2. I just find keeping a log of my weight keeps me focused.
I simply uploaded an app on my phone to keep me on track.
Hugging my boyfriend daily(several times a day) helps too. I am so proud of him. He is on track to reversing his diabetes! But the thing that is really neat is realizing that I can get my arms further around him. His “beer belly”, doesn’t get in the way like it did 2 weeks ago.
And the last thing that keeps me motivated is reading stories about other people who are having success. I read success stories at dietdoctors.com, blogs, and YouTube videos. This keeps me motivated.
