I'm starving

I've decided to start a diet and lose weight, get more healthy and active and have more energy. I know that it's best for me and for our chances of a successful IVF. I know that my insulin resistant PCOS is a challenge and changes to my diet could greatly help it. blah, blah, blah....I'm frickin' hungry!!

I am a carb lover- pasta, white bread, chips, cookies, rice, tortillas, oh and let's not forget my love of junky fast food or Dr Pepper. But, I would really like to lose weight and in order to do so, I really have to eat better. I'm determined! I haven't had fast food in almost a week and allow myself one Dr Pepper a day, but sometimes I cheat and have two. I'm limiting my carbs, eating more protein and taking walks around the neighborhood with my cute dogs. I bought 30 Day Shred, we shall see how much I hate that woman tomorrow once I start it. I've been living better for almost 2 weeks now and have lost 3 pounds! woohoo, it's a start!

But I am SO hungry, I would really like to sink my teeth into a cheeseburger or a pizza or a big bowl of pasta because for some reason, salads and carrots and celery and other various healthy stuff just isn't the same. ::sigh:: So far my willpower is stronger than my desire but the true test will be once C is back. He loves him some carbs too.

Yeah, forgot to mention that C is currently working out of town or actually out of state, he's in North Dakota. His boss gave him a day's warning that he would be flying out for an undetermined amount of time, I was not a happy camper last weekend when he left. I miss him and he is freezing his little Texas born and bred butt off. Hopefully he'll be home soon.

Now I'm off for a lovely walk with the pups and to make myself a healthy dinner. Please, eat something very yummy for me!


  1. I'm right there with you sister, eating the veggies and salads healthy food...but I have found that eating healthy doesnt have to be boring. You will get creative!! I haven't had fast food in almost a year and sodas went out the door years ago. It's worth it though- its worth every single bit of it!!!

  2. I agree eating healthy can really stink sometimes. I too am a carb addict.

    Have you tried adding spaghetti squash to pasta? It's not exactly the same thing, but it does add bulk to the dish, so you think you're eating a lot more.

    Good luck! You can do this!

  3. I love carbs too, it's hard to give them up. I try to just eat them in small portions so I don't feel too deprived. I think everything is OK in moderation! :)

  4. Oh I wish I could eat something yummy for you, but unfortunately I am trying to eat low GI and loose some weight myself before our third attempt IVF. So let's rather keep each other encouraged. Who needs burgers when we can eat broccoli - which is VERY high in folic acid and so has a double bonus of being good for fertility, baby and loosing weight???

    Good luck with the diet I knwo how hard it is.

  5. I'm here with you. And I can say with great certainty that Jillian is the devil in spandex. However, turns out she's PCOS and has endo so she's one of us. That makes me dislike her a little less when trying to shred. Good luck!!!
