Wow, when they said maintaining is the hard part, they weren't kidding! I'm having such a hard time keeping my weight down. I'm back to dieting again- I've put on 8 or 9 pounds since mid-October. It's all because of carbs, too. I'm a sugar junkie. I crave it like an addict, I get anxious if there's nothing around to eat, I use it to perk up in the afternoon, it's like crack. It even takes a few days to detox after I quit cold turkey. I HATE IT! I'm incapable of eating even a tiny bit, because that leads to a multi-day bender. I took the kids to Disney recently and I ate junk all day. It's just pathetic.
So now, I'm back on low carb for a couple of weeks until I can get the extra pounds off, then I'm going to do South Beach, which is pretty much what a nutritionist recommends for hypoglycemics (which I am). That tells you how bad my addiction is: I know it's basically poisonous for me, but I can't stop myself anyway.
I've been thinking about asking God to help me. Like maybe I should pray every time I feel like eating sugar. Anyone else do that? "Please, Lord help me - Christmas is coming! Amen".
