Default Lose 100 pounds of weight and angst

I look in the mirror every day and don't recognize the face staring back at me. There are wrinkles around certain features, and a look of pain, not the physical kind but the emotional kind. I have been a prisoner inside this body for long enough. There are two entities that perch atop my shoulders. On my left is angel food cake nymph, on my right is the devil food cake nymph.
Angel tells me each morning I will do low fat, and work out, and by mid afternoon, the devil tells me I am doing low carb, where I don't have to work out as hard.

I have watched my mother successfully melt off near 100 pounds on low carb. now, a year later she is slowly putting it back on by having 'off' days. So yes, the Angel will tell me, low carb works however, for how long does one stay on it. Yes, life changing way of eating but can YOU do it for life when you have in the past, lost 100 pounds eating low fat?

The Devil will tell me, Go on, try low carb for 30 days and since we are doing low carb, today you can binge on anything that you may miss.

I am sick in the head......

I will be a frequent visitor here...you can count on that

You are not sick in the head... you are like the rest of us who are attempting to lose weight - you are struggling.

The positive is that you wake up and start each morning with the 'angel' side telling you what you should be doing. One day, promise, the devil side won't win over. Visit as much as you need - especially when that devil pops out.

However we lose the weight -- South Beach, Atkins, WW -- if we return to our old way of eating the weight comes back on. If we want to keep the weight off the new way of eating & exercise MUST be something we continue doing every day. I think accepting that fact is the biggest challenge most of us struggle with -- it's so tempting to think we can just stay "on the diet" until we lose the weight and then go back to the old ways!
