So I've officially tried everything


Thursday, April 25, 2013

So, another diet checked off my list! I did Weight Watchers and through this week I looked in the mirror and said "not for you." I loved a lot of the aspects of the program and it may really work for some people.

For me, carbs are the enemy. They trigger all KINDS of cravings and HUNGER in me. When I was doing low carb.... I was NEVER hungry. Everyday I stay within my points I'm starving. And yes, I'm eating good and healthy meals. Sugar is also a real issue, even in natural forms it causes me to feel hungry and generally not good.

SO, I've got to dance with the one that brought me. I lost 40 pounds on low carb and didn't gain any back when I got off of it to explore. I tried being vegetarian... um no. I tried counting calories.... I was left hungry and with all kinds of triggered cravings. The only things that has left me feeling good and stable is low carb. So, enough of trying everything that hasn't worked for me and back to doing something that did work for me.

I hate the people that say "I'm going to start...." when you should start ASAP. Unfortunately my pantry is not stocked for low carb right now. I will give it a go tomorrow if I can find enough in house and make a grocery trip after work. No more playing around... haha :)

    kinda what i'm going through right now too...everybody has an opinion of what works best and it really does come down to what we know about ourselves. i also deal with the carb and sugar issue. right now i'm doing a vegan thing but im finding that where i get my protien is also very high in carbs. so yeah, i think i'm right there with ya...glad you are going back to what works best for you. :)

Are you kidding me! But you tried it, you didnít like it, and you now know what is right for you. Iím so happy for you! 40lbs gone Woohoo!

And I'm so glad you didn't gain. I've had friends who has tried WW talk about the gains before seeing any weight loss on the scale.

    i'm curious what caused you to try other diets if low carb was working for you. did you feel you were missing something?

i haven't been able to buy into the ww diet. i read the ingredients on all their products in the grocery store and don't believe they care a whit about peoples' health.
