Today I have decided I am fixing my scale. Those of you who have been keeping up, I am doing what so many of you are probably doing too.....dieting. Unfortunately, it hasn't been working for me. Granted I have not been exercising, but in the past, low carb was always enough for me.
I swear, I think my metabolism is crashing. My temp is never above 97, unless I have a fever-then it gets all the way up to 99! I recently found out that's a classic sign for a sluggish thyroid. Of course tests in the past have shown mine is fine, but heard those tests are pretty unreliable. I also went on Depo-provera a year ago, but after watching myself put on 15 pounds (plus I'm single) I decided to get off of it a few months back. Could that be thwarting my weight loss efforts? Also I'm not working, going from physically intensive work, to nada, can't be good. Either way, here I am dieting for the last month, and down all of maybe 4 pounds! Ouch!
Now what do they say the definition of insanity is? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Well, today I am doing something different. I am going to switch my eating plan to YOU-on a diet. My dad gave me the book by Dr. Oz (actually I think we traded or something) a couple years ago. It is such a great sounding long term plan, but I am always after the quick fix. It worked for him, and it's how I feed my kids (usually), so here I go. Let's hope this one works!
