My friend VTORIA3 asked me whither to next, now that I successfully got my lab numbers down. I thought about this and realized that I want to continue this Wheatbelly diet as a way of life, and would want to even if I didn't need to lose weight or keep my blood sugar down. What's so enjoyable about it is the feeling of control I have, control that comes from not having carb cravings. I'd give up a lot of foods to keep this feeling. It makes me feel more self-confident in all areas of my life.
There's still a part of me that wants to binge in response to certain emotional triggers, and I imagine it will always be there. But it's so much easier to control.
So my plan is to keep eating this way, keep tracking, and mostly work on staying consistent with my weekly amount of exercise, which is my weakest area. As long as I don't gain weight, I don't care much whether I lose or not - would rather firm up what I have than be thin and even more saggy. Ladies my age, you know what I'm talking about!
