My body won't give me a break!

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

I hate set backs. I know that life will throw crap in my direction and when that happens I find it hard to stay motivated. Every time I start anew and I'm ready to change things, something stupid happens and I can't say on track.

I can't make any more restrictions to my diet other than cutting out sugar which is really minimal anyway. I don't like sweets like cake or candy. I always avoid the break room at work where the tables are disgustingly filled with cookies and pastries and donuts. I always refrain. I drink water everyday. No soda. I haven't had soda in 6 months. I haven't had fast food in more than a year. I've been vegan for 5 months. No meat, turkey,chicken,cheese,eggs, real butter, yogurt, sour cream...................nothin
g! I learned to love broccoli, green beans, salad, and different sources of protein. Still I struggle with my weight. I don't get it. Sometimes I just look at myself in the mirror and think, " Maybe this is me now. Maybe this is what nature intended me to look like. Should I just except the fact that my body is never going to change and I should just settle with what I've got?

My body is fighting against me. Sometimes I believe my body is my enemy. It has kept me from doing the only thing I want to do which is to have a child with my husband. I know that this isn't very inspirational. I just don't understand why my body can't just give me a break.

    Thank you for the kind words. It does seem that since going vegan my consumption of breads, pasta, and rice has skyrocket.

    I just figured that if I kept my calories under 1500 and exercised it would just melt right off.

    Silly me!

    I see you also have PCOS, so do I!!!! This can be hard for us no matter what plan we are on. You can do this!!!! Don't give up!!!!

    Try this: NO alcohol, NO oil & strictly limit your fats like nuts & avocados (only eat every now and then while you are losing weight).

    I'm following the Starch Solution (Dr. McDougall) and this is what they say to do...you can read the science behind it on the website or in the book.

    I bet if you give up those pb &js and still limit your refined grains (like those with PCOS are supposed to), you will have results and FAST!

    Stand strong, cyster! You can do this!
