I weighed in today at 199.4. At least I didn't go back to 200 lbs but this is depressing. I make 1 step forward and two steps back. I've spent a good hour on sparkpeople trying to find articles to give me ideas because my old diet is simply not working. Today I don't think the pounds is real weight as my stomach is bloated but it's not that time of the month. Anyway, I think I am going to try a new way of eating.....normally. I will still cut out the sweets and stuff but I will go back to my calorie counting and food tracking. I read a SP article that listed the servings of fruit, carbs, and etc that should be eaten every day and I am going to plan my meals around that. 2-3 servings of fruit, 3-5 servings of veggies, it says 6-11 servings of whole grains but I don't know if I can go that high since low carb is such a big part of my head but it's better than eating none at all. I also have to increase my workouts. I spend at least 30 minutes working out 5-6 days out of the week but I read the SP article that said 50 mins a day is recommened. That is going to be tough. I will try it next week. I am going on vacation next week for my 1 yr wedding anniversary (yeah me!!) and will try to relax and stop stressing about my weight and every little thing I eat. I want to be normal, I want to enjoy food and enjoy exercising again. This office BL contest will be over in a month and I promise myself (no matter how much my friend begs!) I will not join it a third time. Maybe that will help as well.
