Confessions of a Rollercoaster Dieter
I had mentioned I was going to ease back into some carbs and sugars in a very controlled way. I've done really well and have stuck to mostly meats and veggies. I have added in sunflower seeds, an occasional handful of nuts, and a very rare slice of whole grain bread. I've managed to avoid alcohol (amazingly) for the most part as well. I did discover that the few times I tried to eat something processed, my body went into an all-out revolt (you don't want the details, trust me) so I'll definitely be sticking to "real food" for the most part. I also learned very recently that fried foods from fast food joints cause the same tragedies.
I'm thrilled to report that I have not gained any weight back. I would like to report that I lost more, but at the moment I'm happy with maintaining my weight loss. I've also once again slacked off on regular daily exercise and returned to my happiest state of being sedentary. I'll never look like an Olympian at age 46 anyways. My dog still occasionally drags me around the block in his delirious excitement about it. The best part is...I donated a whole bunch of clothing to charity!!!
