I Live on a Slippery Slope

And it is soooooo easy for me to just slide on that weight gain scale……I weigh myself every morning. I have what I call an “ugly number”’ and that is the top number that I ever want to see on the scale. (I saw it this morning). This scale watching regime has been working for me the last couple of years and I have been able to maintain my much earned weight loss but how easy would it be to just keep gaining? For me very, very easy. I am so carb sensitive that any indulgences seem to show up on the scale immediately. An increase of weight means a cut back on carbs to below 20g. This is particularly frustrating since my husband seems to be able to indulge and not have the same response as me. I have to be sooooo careful and I don’t even do sugar or refined carbs ever. I didn’t use to be so sensitive. I use to be carb tolerate. I can blame it on my thyroid or menopause but whatever, “it is what it is”. If I want to keep my weight in check I have to be very careful with my carbs. At least I don’t have to count calories, be hungry or feel deprived, I can indulge in all the fat that I want, so that is some reconciliation.
