One wrong move and your dead!

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingOk, I'm obcessive about watching the scale. I know I shouldn't , but the facts are I do watch the scale. This is me every morning......Most time threatening the scale, many times begging, pleading and bargaining with it. (Not that it helps).

Just finished day two of the carb-cycling. I'll check the scale in the morning to see if it works or not. This diet is based on 1250 calories a day and provides about 60 grams of carbs on low days and 140 on high days. You alternate between high and low carb days.

Advantages of this program:

  • Smart carbs trick your body into releasing fat!
  • Carb cycling bust weight-loss plateaus.
  • You don't trigger a starvation response to your metabolism.
  • Carb cycling reduces your over-all consumption of starch and sugar which controls blood-sugar levels, and reduces hormones that increase appetite and cravings.
I had whole wheat pasta for dinner with a salad. Woohoo, is this heaven or what?

Daisy Dilemma: If something is too good to be true, it usually isn't right? I hate that this is so important to me. I wonder if I have some defective gene in my DNA that makes me so gullible.

Quote of the Day: "They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. " - Andy Warhol, American artist.

Mood: Really hopeful

You are only on DAY 2!!! You have to give it time before you know if it works... I would give it two weeks to see what's happening! And STAY OFF that bloomin' scale! LOL! (i do know how hard it is -- but honestly that scale will drive you NUTS!) The body does not "immediately" lose weight even on the very BEST food day! It actually takes a few days for your body to catch up with what you've done! LOL!

Hey... Andy Warhol is pretty smart, huh?
