Well, today is Memorial Day 2009 and we're all a coughing, hacking, sick mess over here. Thanks Traci. I love you anyway.
I am taking a break from Low Carb for a while because frankly, I wasn't losing weight, but gaining, and I just can't handle it anymore. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so today I'm OFFICIALLY starting NutriSystem again. The last time I did it I lost something like 40 pounds, so I'm going to give it one more go. I began eating NS two days ago, and I've already lost 4 pounds, so I'm pretty optimistic that this will work.
Now don't get me wrong...Low Carb is a perfectly fine, healthy way to eat, and my decision is in no way a reflection on my Low Carb pals. It's just that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect different results. So, I'm trying something different. Like I said, desperate times...desperate measures.
And you may think I'm insane for starting on a holiday where eating is the centerpiece of the day. Nope, that was intentional. Part of my epic failures of the past have been "giving in" on holidays. I figure I've got a ton of momentum right now since it's at the very beginning, and if I can make it through this holiday unscathed then it will set the benchmark for my future holiday eating patterns.
So today I weigh 211.8 and my goal is to get to 160 and re-evaluate from there. So the march is on in the war against obesity. It's a march of 52 pounds this go around. If I reach my goal weight, then my total weight loss since coming to Sunnyside will be 70 pounds. Epic.
