Well, I did it again. I gained. I am not sure why, but it is really bothering me. This week we tried to do simply filling, eating only power foods. It is not the way to go for me. I do well on weight watchers because I can work within the program. It is VERY livable. If I want a sweet treat, I can have one. I track it, and I pay for it, but I can have it. I have tried so many diets. The fatal flaw, for me, in every single one, was that I was restricted. I couldn't have sweets, and therefore I wanted them SO BAD! It was purely a mental issue, and it is what caused me to fail so many times in the past. Doing simply filling brought those feelings back. I felt deprived and I wanted sweets. I ate carrot cake.
I decided that Simply Filling will not work for me. I like that it is an option, and I think for some people it would be great, but for me, it doesn't work. So I take my second gain in a row, 3rd in the last 19 weeks, and I am stepping back and reassessing the situation. What am I doing and not doing to make this happen. Truthfully, I haven't really been tracking. I can honestly say I haven't tracked a thing since the new year. I know I need to start tracking again. I need to go back to the basics and really start paying attention to what I am eating.
I have also not been on the treadmill this year. That is a horrible truth, but one none the less. I have been trying to walk more, but I need to really get on track with my activity.
I don't know what the magic combination is, but I need to find it. I did this to lose weight and be happier, and gaining is not something I want to happen. I am so close to my goals, I can almost taste it. It's crunch time.
