Ready to Dive In!

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I am back and ready to dive in. I have decided to try an approach that is a little more restrictive then I normally try, but has worked for me in the past. I think I need a phase of easy clean eating. I am tired on calorie counting, fat watching, point adding, or really even thinking about food. I know I have to be aware of what I am eating and how much but right now I am over it. I have decided to move to the Southbeach way of life. For several reasons:

1. I am very familiar with it. I was on it 10 years ago for medical reasons and had the great side effect of weightloss.

2. I is easy and can translate to any venue.

3. Me and carbs don't do well with each other. I know that I need good Carbs, but I struggle with the bad carbs! I think that letting them go and reintroducing the good slowly will help me with cravings and break some of the negative addictions I have.

I am also going to work really hard to address my emotional eating. I am joining support groups here on the spark and committing to really being honest with God, myself, my hubby, and others in my support system.

I am also going to blog often. I think that by putting it out there I am making my success real.
