You never fail until you give up.

Thursday, December 10, 2015

I haven't been on in a while. It was just too depressing watching the scale go up and down. When I had my blood work done a few weeks ago it convinced me to really seek a way to eat and lose weight. I had no idea being pre-diabetic and having metabolic syndrome would be so hard to take off the pounds.

Saw a book on sale at the library called "Wheat Belly". Cut out wheat and began dropping pounds until Thanksgiving. "Cheated" only by allowing myself very thin slices of pumpkin, apple, and cherry pie. But also attacked the pecan pie (2 whole slices emoticon ). Had to throw away the rest of the pie. Gained most back. Then went back to eating wheat free. Didn't begin losing again. Now I am combining the Wheat free with the low carbs. That seems to be doing the trick. Extremely slow but working!

I am never giving up. Can't wait to get my blood work done and see if it's changed.

    I have Celiac disease, so I know it's easier for me cos I don't have options...that said, I have a harder time since my diagnosis over 4 years ago because I can't eat out anywhere or eat a lot of foods others eat, so I sort of "make up for it."

    Just today in my blog I wrote something similar- I mentioned that you have never truly failed until you stop trying. You can do this!

    I agree with crazy dog. We need to change thing sometimes to find what works for us. Glad you are back and doing that.
    Very important to never give up. emoticon emoticon

    It is all about experimenting as you are to see what works. Our bodies are tricky little devils. They get "acclimated" to what you're doing and too comfy. So change as you're doing it is a good thing.

    Glad you came back.
