Last week was not a great week. I was sick for most of it, and…well, there’s a reason they are called comfort foods. I found myself craving all kinds of things that were clearly NOT a part of a low-carb eating plan. So on 3 different days, I ended up having something a bit carby (chicken fingers with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce a couple of times, a burrito bowl at Chipotle with rice in it another time). Because of all that, my weight loss was definitely not on par with last week’s.

Weeks on Diet: 10
However, all things considered, I was pretty proud of myself for a) not giving in to the peppermint ice cream that I realized was still in the freezer, even though it sounded like bliss for my sore throat, and b) not just throwing in the towel for the entire time I was sick. Both of those were major temptations. Given how sick I was for about 3 days, I consider it quite a victory that I didn’t eat whatever I felt like. That’s what I wanted to do, but I managed to stay mostly on track and the scale still moved down a bit. To quote Adam Sandler, “Not too shabby!”
