Hello fellow forum participants! I thought I would take a break from my extensive lurking to introduce myself and regale you with my extensive expertise in how to vast incredible amounts of weight loss knowledge & a deep understanding of the functionality of my own personal human vessel; without actually making any of it work for my personal benefit. I am sure I have been considered for various awards on the subject, or at least I should have been. Perhaps something with a golden Atkins shake on top or a makeshift dunce cap produced from the boxes of DreamFields pasta.
I have been on some form of low carb program roughly 37 times in the last 15 years, that doesn’t include promises of starting the next day or ventures which failed with 72 hours of their initiation. I have successfully lost at least 500 lbs and have successfully gained back at least 700 lbs. Every program and the accompanying weight loss cycle follow a similar process: determination, research, motivation, development, immersion, implementation, rapid success, revitalization, self-admiration, over confidence, aberrant thinking, derailment, depression, gluttony, and apathy. Aberrant thinking is where I decide I can have a cheat meal or eat “off plan” over a holiday and start right back up after. My brain is indeed the master of self deception and emotional trickery.
Anyway if you can’t tell I am back in the research phase so I can get back into implementation. I am fasting today and perhaps tomorrow, then will eventually wake up to a keto based one meal a day lifestyle. I wish you all success in your programs.
