I'll bet you didn't know this...
I am easily discouraged.
I try not to let on here on the blog because I feel like my job is to encourage others.
And how encouraging in a discouraged Donna?
Not at all.
But I just got off the scale.
(I weigh in on Monday.)
And I am up two pounds.
And in the last seven weeks I have worked so hard to lose...and I just don't lose.
I am counting my calories, walking every day, drinking my water, and not eating after 7:00pm at night.
And I am not losing.
As you know, I lost on the Fat Flush.
But I also lost my hair and hated the no bread diet.
But, I think I have come to the conclusion that I can not eat bread products and lose weight.
I don't understand it.
But, I am going to cut out all but one starch a day and see if I lose.
I have to have one starch a day.
I mean. Come on!
Why doesn't limited calories + exercise = weight loss for me?
I have been told don't eat too little or I will put my body in starvation mode.
So I have been careful to eat the required "points".
Still no weight loss.
So no carbs for me, baby.
And it makes me mad.
And it makes me sad.
And I really don't want to eat like this(low carb) for the rest of my life.
But I really, really, really do want to lose weight.
And boy, I get discouraged when I work super hard on something...
and it doesn't work.
And I don't understand it.
If you can tell me why eating bread makes me not lose weight.
Tell me in Kindergarten terms.
Cause I have read all the books and I end up thinking they are hooey and I really don't believe the hype.
And actually, if I combine the suggestions from all the books I have read,
the only things I can eat are vegetables and olive oil.
Now, because I love food.
That is just depressing.
So starting today, it is the low carb diet for me.
I am not happy about it.
But I fear I don't have a choice....
if I ever want to lose weight.
So long, evil friend.
Tomorrow, I'll be back to blogging the good parts.
Encourage one another,
