It’s 11:30. This means I have 30 minutes until my diet officially starts. And I’m scared!! I’m doing a low carbohydrate, or Atkins diet. My husband, his father, mother, and my mother, have all had great success with this. My goal is drop at least 15 pounds. I’ve never tried this diet before but I’m really going to go at it hard. I’m such a carb queen that I’m actually scared lol. But I HAVE to lose this extra weight. I don’t like the way I look or feel. And I really want to look good for our recital in June. So this is the best way to jump start the weight loss. I’ll be eating high protein and aiming to keep my carbs to 20 grams or less a day. If you’re not familiar with carbs, take a look at your nutrition labels. There are carbs in practically everything you eat. Meat, cheese, and veggies are mostly low carb. So this will be what I am eating. Carbohydrates are the same thing as sugar. Carbs = Sugar. Our bodies were not designed to eat high carb diets. Hence why the obesity rates are so high and children are so over weight. Health and science along with the physiology of your body is an incredible thing to study. I studied for hours upon hours in dental hygiene school about these topics. My husband took 4 years of graduate level health and science classes, so he’s a genius when it comes to the body and the science behind how and why it works the way it does. I’ve learned a lot from him.
So instead of munching on left over birthday cake for the rest if the upcoming week, I will sadly be sending it to my husband’s work so the ladies there can enjoy it. Sigh. But I can’t wait to look and feel better about myself.
Goodbye dear carbs, it’s been a fun time. I do not want to say goodbye, but I need to. We’ll see each other again some day. Just not right now.
With 15 minutes left until midnight…I have officially broken up with carbohydrates.
