I have tried tons of different diets (Scarsdale, Cabbage Soup diet, Calorie counting, Weight Watchers, Atkins, Dukan, etc) , done the yo-yo dieting thing and so I am hoping that by posting here to myself (and anyone who wants to read it) that I will be more accountable and stick with my new way of eating as of today. From what I have seen from sample eating plans of the G.I. diet (by Rick Gallop) is that it has the ability to be very sustainable in the long term. However, I am only just beginning and time will be the truest test of all! I have 65 lbs and several inches to lose to get to my goal. I am also hoping to find others doing the same way of eating and we can encourage each other and perhaps trade recipes etc.
I think for the most part dinners will be the easiest meal, but I will have difficulty with breakfasts and lunches until I am more familiar with this way of eating. Totally changing what I order when we eat out will be difficult for me. I am going to have to get in the habit of carrying with me healthy snacks, cause when I get really hungry I can get a headache and lose my willpower.
I have lots of motivation to lose weight. I just need to remind myself of it from time to time!
1. Get healthier and live longer
2. Hopefully reduce or stop taking some/all of my meds
3. Look better
4. Feel better
I plan to weigh and measure myself every Monday morning.
So without further procrastination - here goes!!
