Stick with what works

February 1st will make a year since I started on this weight loss/healthiness journey.  I am REALLY close to hitting my goal of losing 100lbs in one year and am trying desperately to get there.  I know it's not the end of the world if I don't make it, but I really want to be able to say that I lost 100lbs in a year.

In a last ditch effort to try and drop the pounds fast, I decided to try something new starting on Monday.  I was going to do the South Beach Diet for two weeks to try and drop the big weight they promise you will lose in those two weeks.  Well, I prepared myself last Sunday and started on Monday.  My plan was to follow the diet, but stay within the confines of my WW points so that I didn't go overboard.

I did really well on Monday and Tuesday, but by Tuesday evening I just felt AWFUL.  My stomach was all messed up and I felt so deprived.  It was terrible.  I decided that I wasn't going to be so strict with myself and by Wednesday evening, all bets were off.

I know the low carb/no carb thing can work for some people, but it was not for me.  Weight Watchers has worked really well for me and I've never felt deprived of yummy, yet healthy, options.  Being told what I cannot have makes me want just that!

That being said, I've decided that my motto is to just stick with what works.  Weight Watchers has worked really well for me.  I've lost at a reasonable pace and there is no real reason to change that.  I just started getting greedy and it backfired on me.   I'm back to my original weight loss plan - Weight Watchers & Exercise.

I am holding out until Tuesday to post my official 1 year weigh-in!!
