Dear Carbs

Dear Carbs,

I miss you. I miss you with all my taste buds! I miss you in every form you present yourself! Hot toast, hot chips, mash potatoes, wine, know who you are...well, I miss you!

It has been a few weeks now and I can't say that the results thus far warrant the sacrifices made! The promises the books make are just not true! "Give up your carbs and lose 15 lbs in two weeks...." this is just not possible.These false promises are just no good and I am suffering!!

Every time I pass the bakery or the deli the delicious smells rise up and titillate my taste buds, my mouth waters, my tummy grumbles.

It is hot cross bun time and I am not sure I am going to be able to avoid having a little nibble here and there.

Most of all I miss my evening glass of delicious pink wine! How can one be expected to give up the elixir of life!!

"You are what you eat" is the common belief....I am going to be bouncing around like a bunny soon with all the greens I am eating. Can man live on lettuce alone? Am I imagining it or have I a green tint to my complexion?

Dear Carbs, I repeat, I miss you. I just hope that with all this suffering and sacrifice, the readings on the scale will soon be favorable and I will be able to wear my size L clothes again. I hope some of my aches and pains will disappear and all will be good.

Right now, all I see is a long boring road ahead filled with temptation which will need much determination and staying power!

Wish me luck,

  1. Hang in there....eating the fruit, veggies and proteins does lessen your hunger pangs...but not overnight. I truly feel your pain. It will stop.
