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.
