At the beginning of last week I started a diet. This would be unremarkable for most people, except that I typically don't believe in dieting. I'm known to tell anyone who says they are on a diet to "just eat in moderation...you'll be fine!". That was before....when I was already skinny. Easy to say then. Fast forward to today....and my post baby body is still not quite back to normal...and I have a stubborn ten pounds that just don't want to budge (really, I could probably stand to lose 20 lbs, but I'll settle for the 10).
The diet that I started is called the slow carb diet and basically involved me eating lots of protein and veggies and very little carbs. I should really only eat carbs when I'm working out, which I'm not doing, so I really eat practically nothing. The cool thing is that I'm allowed a cheat day once a week where I can eat ANYTHING that I want to (yummo!). So I started this last week and I've already managed to lose 5 lbs! I'm sure that that'll come back a bit, but I also know that for me once I lose weight I'm pretty good at keeping it off....so bring on the crazy diet! Wooh! Wish me luck :)
