Ok so at lunch today I officially re-began my diet. I know that dieting is, in the vast majority of cases, a useless endeavour. However, in my case, PCOS does not let me choose not to diet. I am happy at (whatever my current weight is) but unless I monitor carefully I will continue to gain. That I am not prepared for; hence the diet.
I chose Atkins because it works both for me and PCOS. In total I’d like to lose 40 kgs which will leave me at 70 (approximately). It’s hardly thin but I like my fat and I think it suits my personality. I’m a loud, opinionated, intimidating bitch and I love it! Plus I think my body is sensual.
So today’s lunch was – steak and eggs – and it was yummy with a diet coke and serious amount a coffee. I know that’s not recommended with Atkins because it causes sugar cravings. I’ve been off the sugar for three years so it’s not really an issue. Bread is my weakness but this blog is an attempt to keep me motivated, thereby alleviating the bloody annoying symptoms of PCOS.
Tonight I’ll probably eat out because there is one stalk of dried broccoli and two bottles of vodka in my fridge. I’m not abstaining from alcohol because living where I do, drinking is what we do best! I am going to try and cut down on the smoking and thereby make my gym visits easier.
