Well, I am very slowly buy surely going down. It might only be 1/4 pd a week. Sometimes even none, but, going down.
I count my carbs only. Try to stay under 50 g, max is 100 g. Like I say, it's working, slowly, but, it works.
Today (Monday) I am starting low carb induction. I decided I should speed things up a bit.
I haven't had pasta in months (and I haven't had white pasta in years? I only eat whole wheat.) and my brother in law gave me a bag when he was moving last week. I meant to take it to the store and put in the food bank box, but, of course, I didn't.
So, last night when I came home from riding, I was cold and hungry and had that bag of pasta sitting there begging to be my comfort food. And I cooked it. Rotini with broccoli, mushrooms, onions, sundried tomatoes, cream cheese and greek yogurt and spices. It was sooooo good. Had some baked chicken with it. Didn't go crazy on the pasta part of dinner, but, a good serving.
Well, I got on the scale this morning and I had gained 5 POUNDS!!!!!!
. 5 POUNDS!!! Holy cow!!!
Now except for that pasta, everything else I ate all day was food I allow myself and I didn't eat much, cuz I was outside all day..............
So, obviously pasta is my enemy!!!!! What a shock! I mean I could see a pound, even two. Was more hoping I would just stay the same though. But to gain 5 pounds. And I have been so happy with my slow, but, still downward moving scale.
Well, I certainly learned something there, didn't I? Never again will pasta touch these lips. At least not until I have lost all the weight I want to.
Well, that's it for today. Been faithful to induction so far today. Hopefully it won't take me all week to lose those pounds again.
Wish me luck!!!
