Bring on week #3 of the slow carb challenge.  I’d like to take a moment to pat myself on the back for just a moment.  I have NEVER made it two weeks of any kind of food challenge ever in my life.  EVER.  I usually quit a few days in because I feel as though I deserve better.  I deserve to eat whatever I want.  Um, hello can we say I feel food entitlement?  It’s gross y’all.  I’m dealing with it.  I’ll share more later, but I have been so surprised with what God is bringing to light in my heart with food issues.  It’s like it says in Ephesians “But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible.”   Y’all this food stuff is hard.

Anyhow … I have not cheated, at least intentionally, at all.  Not once people.  I have sat at tables in front of chips and haven’t touched one.  That my friends is amazing if you know me.  I could live on chips.  Well, of course I couldn’t, but I think I could.  Reference the food issues I mentioned earlier about this.  🙂

My cheat days have been gloriously wonderful, but each day has left me wanting to get back on the wagon.  I never thought I would say that, but I’m feeling better on the challenge.  I’m losing weight.  I’m losing inches.  I’m happy with the progress, so that helps me want to get back on track.

This cheat day included breakfast tacos, a veggie sandwich, and some great food at a party I went to.  It was worth it for sure!  Speaking of party, here’s me and my man at the party:

I’m in a challenge with some other people called #alittletoofluffy – how hilarious is that!  We all put $10 in the pot and the person that loses the most % of weight over 6 weeks wins it all!  That’s $320 people.  I’m in it for the win!  I won this past week, but I lost a lot and I am worried about plateauing this week.  We shall see.

Bring it on week #3 – I’m ready!
