Low carb? Low cal? Low fat? Low carb? Low cal? Low fat?

Well, I can honestly say that low fat usually means low flavor. I’m not talking about using high fat, whole milk and bacon grease for everything I eat. But man, real butter and milk (even skim) tastes way better than Smart Balance and Hood’s Calorie Count Down Dairy Beverage.

However, low carb works. But, I’m not happy on it. I feel greasy and lethargic on it. Plus, I love eating pasta and rice. But it works! And I’m never hungry on it.

Low cal works too, but I find myself hungry on it. But, I get to eat small amounts of everything I love. But if I eat a big brownie in the afternoon I get celery and spenda for dinner.

Sigh.

Where the hell is the magic pill to make all the weight fall off? We seriously have Viagra and Rogaine, but no pill to make us skinny? (and yes, I know cancer and aids and other stuff is more important, but man….Dare to dream, right?)

Well….Hell

It really seems that I’ve all but given up on losing weight. It’s not really the case, I just haven’t really cared about it for the last few weeks. I’ve been bad and only half following the low carb thing, which is really bad. You’ll gain a crap load of weight doing that. Which, I have gained weight as a result, not a lot, but I have gained.

I think a big problem is that I haven’t been going to TOPS. Knowing I have to step on a scale in front of other people goes a long way towards keeping on track.

I really don’t know what happened. Well, that’s a lie. I do know what happened to cause this horrific bout of apathy, I just don’t know how to get out of it.

At some point, you think I’d be tired of saying “This is it! I’m finally gonna lose weight for good!”, over and over again.

Gak.

Well, I’ll get on that scale this Saturday and use that as my starting point. Again.

And Another Thing

I’ve had this crazy idea rolling around my head for a while….

Along with Stat’s every week, I was thinking that I should post a picture of myself.

You know, kind of have a running visual along with my written progress.

We’ll see though. I’m still really insecure about the way I look. I know I’ve come a long way (Started my weight loss at a size 24 and am now a 16), but still.

Also, this kind of ties in with my post with the picture of the anorexic looking model the other day:

We’ve come a long way in 50-60 years.

Eh.

At this point, I’m going to be weighing in at TOPS again in two days. So, I’m not gonna post last weeks stats.

Seems kinda pointless at this stage in the game.

I will say that I had a gain of 1.6 pounds last Saturday over the week before. But, hey, it was Thanksgiving after all.
