For this weekend challenge of the BLC21 we had to write a blog. I've been wrapping my brain around what to blog about.

I've been reflecting about my weight gain. For as long as I can remember I've been trying to lose weight, From the age of 16- 22 my weight stayed in-between 140-170 but mostly 150. But when I was 22 everything changed I met my husband to be and went back to school from May 2006 to March 2007 my weight went from 160 up to 220.

I gained another 10 pounds After my wedding in August 2009. In 2011 I got down to 195 by doing Low- carb. which worked great for me, but I got bored of eating that way.

So now I'm counting calories and have been for the last year, I have noticed that this is not working for me as well as I hoped I need to figure out something else.

I'm not sure what is the right thing for me. In a way I want to go back to low carb but I know It's not something I can do forever and I'd like to find a plan I can do forever.

I don't have a answer to my problem up it felt good to get it out of my head.

    I know it can be tiresome, but for me - low carb is the answer. Those starchy carbs just mess me up every time. How you find your groove!

    Well, you can just do what I call careful-carb. I try to eat mostly whole foods, and include potatoes and small amounts of pasta. Otherwise, I get my carbs from veggies, fruits and the occasional chocolate. When I am watching it, I try to keep my carbs around 100 grams a day, maybe 150 at the most. Unfortunately, I have not been very watchful lately!
