I knew that line would get you to look. It does in fact hurt, but more to the point it is my tail bone. Riding a bike for 7 miles does that to me.
So I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to drop weight. I am watching what I eat, although not so strictly that I cannot have a treat. I am walking/jogging/biking at least 5 days a week. And yet, I have not lost a pound. What else can I do?
I fill up on salad--mostly lettuce and carrot, a sprinkle of bacon bits, and no more then the serving size suggested of salad dressing, and a sprinkle of croûtons. I am not eating junk all day long. I try to get in protein. I try to get in good fats, like olive oil. I use butter, not margarine, but I don't use gobs. I make my own bread so I know what goes in it, and I limit myself. I snack on rice cakes--50 calories, and usually only one a day. I drink unsweetened iced tea, a lot. I do allow myself a soda at night, but I am not gulping it during the day the way I used to.
Damn it this totally blows. I am doing things right and yet, I seem to not be able to drop any weight. I am almost tempted to going back to not eating, because that is how I dropped 50. I would have one meal a day.
I am obviously having a horrible image week. All I see when I look in the mirror, is a gargantuan glob of a person. It sucks.
