I am going to admit my weight publicly on my blog. I weigh 180, and I'm so proud because about a month ago I weighed almost 190. When I went to clinic in November I was really heavy. I'm still heavy - but I'm losing weight and I'm so proud of me.
And I wanted you all to know that I'm finally proud of me and my weight.
Want to know my secret to losing weight? No carbs. Okay, okay, not NO carbs, but a very restricted carb diet. I don't buy bread or tortillas anymore. I have a carb addiction - and I could eat 6 pieces of toast in a sitting. So if I only buy low to no carb foods, I eat better and lose weight. I'm also eating less - and it's working. Imagine that!
I don't deprive myself of meals or ignore my diabetes (the low to no carb diet is probably best for my diabetes, anyways). I don't deprive myself of carbs altogether either. About once a week I let myself eat out and get a sandwich or soup in a bread bowl, and sometimes even Noodles. But for the most part, I eat little meals that are low to no carbs. And I'm really proud that 1) I'm sticking to something and 2) It's working!!!
I finally feel that if I lose weight, FABULOUS, but if I don't, that's okay too - because I'm me. I may not really like the way I look in photos or in the mirror when I teach, but the more weight I lose the more I feel comfortable with myself and tell myself I don't need to lose weight.
