It took some doing to come up with a plan. All I've ever "known" successfully was low carb. I did that for 4 years, counting maintenance, got depressed after mom died and when I started eating pumpkin cream cheese muffins that we sent to the house after her death, banana pudding and spaghetti (the only 3 foods I could hold down for a week), it started me down a downward spiral and the binge monster came back.
I asked kiddo if she'd be my cheerleader. She said she wanted to be more than a cheerleader, she wants to go on a diet with me.
Poor child has food insecurities, so I'm having a hard time picturing how that'll work, not to mention I don't want her getting caught in that cycle, so I have to come up with a plan that'll work and still make her realize she'll always have food.
I reminded her she can stop at any time and just be my cheerleader, that I never want her feeling deprived and that's she's beautiful inside and out. She's totally excited though and had us start with dinner last night.
I changed my facebook pic to my "goal" pic for inspiration. I want to look like this again:
Well, in reality, except the hair, which is now turning gray, lol But close enough!! I want that body!! Maybe with my graying hair, I will not get quite the level of uncomfortable attention. Got to combat that too.
