The last time that I lost weight, I was in a heated battle, kind of. I was going through a divorce, and the weight loss was a involuntary side effect. Since I've been happily married for almost ten years both the love I have for my wife, and my waistline have grown…significantly.
Now I am embarking on a great experiment, testing whether this diet, or any diet so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. I am met on a great battle field of sweets and fats. And I've come to dedicate a portion of them to the garbage, as a final resting place for those who dieted before.
My diet: eat whatever I want, but less of the bad stuff and more of the good stuff. So I'm cutting down on: Bread, mayo, butter, fats and sweets of all kinds, and drinking mostly water.
I am consuming more, lean protein, fresh fruits and veggies, and using mustard, dill relish, vinegar, hot sauce, or soy in place of mayo and salad dressings.
I know that I'll have to start exercising, ill keep you posted on that as it comes together.
Have you ever dieted? What worked for you?
