Just call me the Li-Lo of dieting. I am back from vacation and I am in carb detox. Please, someone write a tabloid article about me!
I'm not even getting on the scale until Sunday. That'll give me 5 days to get myself back in order at least. I know I've gained, it is just a question of how much. And I can't bear to get on that scale. Maybe by Sunday, it'll only be something like 5 lbs. Ha. Maybe.
I had carbs every day I was away. Bread. Pasta. Rice. Potato. My old friends, how I missed them. Not to mention Chocolate Lava Cake.
I also swam laps, sat in a jacuzzi, walked the beach for miles. I wonder if any of that helped at all. I did those things because I wanted to though, not in an effort to combat my eating.
I also slept a lot, which was a good thing.
So onward....still without a haircut. The co-worker's wedding is looming closer. I just might have to get a buzz cut. Boo-Yah!
PS Oh yes....people's reactions? Well, my mother said I didn't look like I lost as much as I said I had. Umhm yup. My sisters said I looked great. My mother later toasted to me over DRINKS and carb-ladened dinner saying "To the new Donna." Ha. Nice. My friends said I looked good. Overall, it doesn't matter. When the next 40 lbs is gone, that's when it'll be drastically different. OK, yeah, I've got to get there first.
And to those who wonder if they could do this: If you had to lose 30 lbs, you'd be at goal by now!
