I'm on a diet. I'm on a HUGE diet. In fact I may have died of starvation by the end of the day.
As I mentioned some weeks ago, I recently changed pill and this caused a 5kg weight gain. It didn't bother me because I'd rather have the weight gain than the side effects of the other pill. However, just between us I was somewhat narked off that I didn't get to EAT all that weight on (yes, that is an appalling attitude, I do agree).
Still, a dieting I must go. In addition to the pill weight, I'm carrying 10kgs worth of grief eating around my middle from last year. I hate it. I hate the way I look. I hate the way I feel.
I also hate people telling me its okay.
Its not. Its really unhealthy. It is not okay when my stomach sticks out further than my size E breasts. That is not okay.
Me being fat is not okay with me. (Frankly I don't give a rats arse what anyone else thinks about it, its none of their business. The important thing is how I feel about it, after all its my body, and how I feel is crap).
I've been a fan of weightwatchers for YEARS. I've lost significant weight with them twice. I think if you need help losing weight then they are the people to see.
However, this time around, just for the sake of interest and messing with my own head, I've decided to take a different path. One of my idols, Lisa Curry, is running a weightloss program on her website http://www.lisacurry.com.au/, and I have signed up.
Its very low carb, I'm eating in a whole new way, I don't know if I'll last, but I'm up to week 3 and so far its been a fun experiment. If I get sick of it then I'll be straight back to weightwatchers - I still have my online membership.
Therefore, no meal plans for the time being. However, I am feeding hubs and the kids as per usual, so I might stick up the odd recipe from time to time.
Shall let you know how I go :)
