hi there .....
well, i've been around the boards for a while now. but i must confess - i have not been following an LC WOE for quite a while now. i thought my strict exercise routine could help me keep my weight down .... but after a summer of snacking and indulging, the pants are getting tighter, the belly bloat is horrible, and i just don't feel good about the way i look and feel.
(BTW, moving in w/ my carb-addicted BF in may has not helped matters. don't get me wrong, HE is great - but i do NOT need to mimic his eating habits. LOL! i have recognized that preparing dinners will be difficult, however. i have basically told him that when i cook, he will eat what i eat and can add a starch on his own.)
anyway, i've bought and read the SBD book and stocked my fridge. today is my first day. i was reeeally nervous. i tend to become really obsessive about eating "rules and regulations." but i'm just going to do the very best i can. and remind myself that NO ONE is perfect.
i have a feeling i'll be a bit more strict on the carbs than SBD requires, simply b/c i followed atkins about a year ago. but i'm definitely excited about the flexibility of the SBD plan.
eating for today ....
