Honestly, I hate dieting

1 Comment

In the last 7 weeks I have lost 19.8 pounds and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

But I really really hate dieting.

When I lost weight three years ago by counting carbs, it didn’t feel like a diet. This time it does. I have the guilt that goes with a diet as well as the yearning for more food.

Thats not to say I’m going to quit the diet, however. After awhile last time I could let myself go for a day and then hop back on the diet train. I’m not that far yet.

I think the reason why I’m still on this diet is the fact that we can still eat dessert. Doug and I buy the weight watchers ice cream bars and have one, sometimes two, almost every night.

One of many secrets to successful weight loss, I’ve found, is to not deprive yourself. That is just a setup for failure. Thats why I’m glad we can still have ice cream.

  1. There's definitely no reason you shouldn't have ice cream when you are dieting. Everyone should be able to have ice cream! Hang in there. You are doing a great job. Think about how awesome it was to break into the 100s. It'll take a long time, but eventually you'll hit your goal weight and hopefully you can transition away from feeling like you are dieting. You can do it!
