I've been feeling worse and worse physically. My depression symptoms are still active except for crying all the time. I decided over the weekend that I had to take a stand and take care of myself. It's time to break the sugar addiction and to lose some of this water weight. I realized I did not want to go out in public because I don't like the way I look and that is just wrong. I don't remember feeling that way, at least not with such intensity, before. So, it's time.
I'm making a 2 week promise to myself. I can go under 20 grams of carbs daily for 2 solid weeks to break my sugar addiction. How else am I ever going to get off of these meds and start to feeling like myself again?
The hard part is planning meals. I burned myself out with all my years of low-carb dieting. I need to get some foods that are easy to prepare that will fit within my diet plan. I can do this. I've done it before. I don't think I'll ever be skinny, but I just want to be off of blood pressure pills. That is not too much to ask, is it?
So, next up is making a menu of things to eat and making a grocery list. Ahh, fun times.
I had to break out the fat jeans and they're getting too tight. EEEEEK.
