My name is Taylor and I have been on and off here for a few years. My biggest loss was about 3 years ago when I lost 70 pounds.
I lost my weight by crazy 90min - 2hr workouts and hiking unbelievable amounts. Also restricting calories.
There are somethings I did right - and something I did wrong. But I gained it all back and then some.
Fast forward to my life now and I am almost afraid of food. Its kind of silly really but I want so desperately to lose weight I have researched just about everything.
Don't eat wheat - its bad for you
Don't eat milk/dairy - unless you're younger than 2
If you do eat meat - it needs to be organic and grass fed
Don't eat meat - it will sit and rot in your gut
Don't eat carbs - it will make you fat
Don't eat fruit - it has sugar
Don't eat sugar - it will also make you fat
Cheese - also bad
Pork - Bad
Chicken skin - bad
Vegetables - only if they are organic and sung to while they are growing
Gluten = nope don't eat that either. You're allergic and don't know it
Nuts - maybe not too many
Don't restrict calories - listen to yourself
Don't trust yourself - restrict calories
Exercise - yoga is fine but only if don't want to lose weight, walking the dog isn't cardio so you need to run. But don't run too much - thats bad. Lifting weights will only make you gain
Can someone please help me out there? I should know better than this. I am a very smart girl who really does know how to eat but it seems I am so overwhelmed with the "diet industry"
I feel like I have "dieted" my way up to the weight that I am.
I really want to 2014 to be the year I actually get my **** together. Plus I am getting married in October and I want to feel awesome. (Yes, and look great picking out a dress too. But I want to feel strong and in control.)
Am I just going crazy? Anyone else feel the same way?
