I’ve decided to stick with Ideal Protein instead of transitioning to the Atkins Diet for mainly one reason.
In the past I would start on a diet and then think I could change it up into something new and keep losing weight and then I would just royally mess the whole thing up.
I didn’t realize this until after I said I would transition to Atkins and then it hit me. I’m repeating old patterns and I said I would stay with Ideal Protein until I got to goal. So, I’m sticking to what I said I was going to do and fulfill my goal using the Ideal Protein protocol program.
My Naturopath wants me to eat more whole foods, and I’m doing that on the Ideal Protein protocol, but I do still eat some of the packets of Ideal Protein and Ideal Protein alternative foods.
I only have 35 more lbs to lose until I meet goal so not too much longer and I can phase off of Ideal Protein and back onto all whole foods.
Though I’ve been on this weight loss journey for 36 weeks now – you would think that I’m as strong as ever about temptations. For the most part I am, but I can tell that my mind is getting tired of this weight loss and I’m ready to be done.
I know that even this – mind being tired – is part of the journey and something I need to meditate on and move through.
Thanks for the support everyone. It really means a lot to me when you send me comments, suggestions, and love!
