I feel like a diet loser and not one that is losing lots of weight. I decided today that I can't do the South Beach Diet or at least that super restrictive phase one. Let me explain how much I love carbs. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life it would probably be pasta or cookies. I actually did pretty well the first couple of days. I did slip and have a couple of goldfish here and there but far less bad snacks than I usually have. Yesterday I really fell off the no carb wagon and ate some baked chips and brownies. The whole slip really wasn't that many calories since they were in those 100 calorie bags and I shared with both kids. After the slip though I felt bloated and headachy. Related or coincidental? Probably related. Why is it that something can make me feel physically bad and I still do it? If I could figure this out I'd probably solve this whole diet drama.
So I know you are all wondering what diet is she going to try now. Well it is back to Weight Watchers but this time I will try the core program which is kinda like less restrictive South Beach. I don't need to count points except for food that are not on the core food list. The core food list is pretty extensive. I think that will keep the bad snacking in check. Wish me luck. Gosh knows I need it.
