Trying to Diet, Maybe?
I have so many friends that are actively dieting or trying to diet right now that I almost think that I might have to join in. The best diet for me would be one in which I did not eat because it is once I start eating that the problems begin. I have one friend that is doing Weight Watchers, another that is going to try Nutrisystems, and several others who are just using portion control. I had to laugh when someone referred to potion control as eating like you used to eat. I used to eat a lot more than I eat now and I didn't pay much attention to portion control or what I ate either. Then I would go for a five mile run and I never gained weight. There were times, when I was in my twenties, that I could have been called underweight and as a teenager I definitely was underweight. Now I exercise, I am very consistent about this, and it doesn't really seem to make much of a difference. I do eat much less and watch what I eat more closely than I ever have before in my life and doing this and exercise doesn't seem to make a huge difference. I could cut out carbohydrates altogether, that might be the best thing. I am not sure what to replace them with though. So I am still in flux. Maybe I should just get on a diet plan, maybe I should just have more self control, maybe I should work out five times a week instead of three, maybe, maybe, maybe
