I hate the D word. You know which D word I meant dont you?
The D word that makes you miserable & cranky, the one that makes you obsess over everything.
Yes the big old diet word.
I am getting to that point of my weight now where I am out of breath just bending down to tie my shoes, walking up the stairs more than once to put washing away might as well be climbing mount Everest. Dont get me started on metaphors and similes of what it is like trying to having sex.
Every time I even start to attempt the D word, I immediately start to crave the things I would miss. I love my sugary tea, chocolate bars, white bread & crisps butties with lashings of real butter. Damn, no wonder I am a fatty!!
There are so many choices out there of what diet to try, low carb diets, calorie counting diets, points, syns, shakes and bars. How do you know which is the right one for you? How do you know if you are more likely to stick to one without giving up at every step. Is it about looking at what you normally eat anyway and seeing what your down fall is? For me its definitely Carbohydrates. I love chips, spuds & bread, Pasta & rice are my main food friends. So Do I go for a diet that uses them or one that cuts them out?
Its sooo confusing.
IF.. and I do mean IF!!! I start to diet, I may embarrass myself to stick to it by blogging about my darn cravings, and my moments of woe and misery.
Off to do some research now on which, how, and long term diets.
Wish me luck
