...including Atkins when I lost 16 kilos in 9 months and then put it all back and more. Typical. Every time I started up again my whole being would freeze up and I would give up on the second day. I just hated the idea of it. I missed bread and pasta and all those things I loved. Ice cream most of all in this very hot place where I live. The upshot of it all is that I am now at the heaviest weight I have ever been. And depressed about it too. And very scared to commit to yet another go at a diet and all that can't have this and can't have that. Deprivation does not suit me at all. So how am I going to do this and keep to it for even 30 days?!! Scary thought but I am desperate. Sitting at 118 kilos at 5'6"is no joke - and I own a restaurant where I am involved with carby food every day. But I am here and that is a start. More later.
