Yes, I put that word in all caps on purpose. I have a genuine love and devotion for carbs! If you could see my face, you would see that dreamy look of devotion when a girl first falls in love with a boy. Let me make this clear… When I talk about carbs, I am not referring to fresh fruit, veggies, and whole grains. I am talking about bread, wine, and sweets. I would not get all dreamy over a piece of broccoli! Give me a nice glass of red wine, some warm sourdough bread, and a plate of herb infused olive oil. I could live on that! Seriously!
Unfortunately, my diet plan is not working for me. Crap! Crap! Crap! I really tried! I thought that perhaps my body is different than other people’s bodies. That my body CRAVES these things means my body NEEDS these things. Right? Anyone? Why the hell can’t I crave broccoli?
I have a feeling that I can’t blame my continued inability to lose weight on my imbalanced hormones anymore. I have a feeling that I am going to have to LEARN to crave broccoli. I have a feeling that a temper tantrum is coming on.
I think I have tried about all of the mainstream diets out there. I know what DOESN’T work. I know that I can’t starve myself because I become a very cranky Maniac. I know that I can’t completely give up my wine and bread because once again, cranky Maniac.
I have a sneaking suspicion that for me to be completely balanced, I need to balance my food choices as well as my hormones.
Isn’t it nice that I am having this epiphany right before the holidays?
Hugs to you!
