I have been on a diet for the past 20 years. My weight has gone up and down so much I can not keep it straight. I have so many different sizes of clothes in my closet, I am wary of throwing anything out. I have been on every diet advertised and I have taken diet pills (over the counter and prescription). I have been successful some but I tend to always give up. I believe I have no will power.
I love food. I love the way it smells, taste and texture. I reward myself with food (thanks mom) I know it is wrong I just cant stop. I am really trying this time. I am so sick of being overweight. I know I will never be skinny and abtastic but I would be happy looking and feeling better.
I have done weight watchers for the past 9 weeks and I have lost 10 pounds. But here is how it went. I first gained 2 pounds, the gained .8 pounds, then I lost 6 pounds, then I gained 2, then I lost 4 pounds, then I lost 2 pounds. The only way I lost was starving myself. The points did not work. I do not know why I followed the plan.
So that is when I decided I am a person you can not eat carbs, that is what sabotages me every time. I also can not eat nuts. I guess it is the way my body handles things.
So today is day 3 of induction. I weighed yesterday and I will way again next week. I did slip up the first day and ate a carrott, I thought they were on the list then when I was reading on the internet I realized how wrong I was. I assume it was better that I ate one carrott and not a snickers bar. Then yesterday I have to have some diet soda. It was about 3 yesterday afternoon and I felt as if I was going to pass out. So I new I needed something and a diet mt dew was all I had left in my work fridge. I gave away all the other food I kept here and I had already had my snack.
So I would love to have any advice or support that anyone has to offer.
