I have been lamenting lately, and I guess it is the same for all addicts:
"Why cant I just eat 'X" like a normal person?"
I am sure any addict can fill in the blank with their own personal struggle...
Why can't I drink wine, beer or liquor...?
Why can't I go to the casino...?
Why can't I go shopping...?
Maybe we don't get to know why this side of heaven. All I know is that I don't eat "X" like a normal person. (Bread, sugar, simple carbs) and I am dog tired of trying to figure out a way to do it. Just bone tired!
I gave up completely 10 days ago and have lost 10lbs in 10 days. After working my butt off for a month literally and gaining 3-4 lbs.
So I am firmly back in the low carb camp. I will just need to work really hard to keep it do-able, portable, and interesting. Ok, it really doesn't have to be all that interesting. Just tasty.
Starting during all the holiday hoo ha has been challenging. But I just could not continue to eat on another 10-20 lbs. I felt a sense of complete adrenal exhaustion and that diabetes was not far behind me, if not at my doorstep.
I've got a long way to go but at least I've made a good start.
