As I wrote in my earlier post today, I plan to cut out sugar from my diet. As well, as refined white flour. *sigh* It's my plan to lose the excess 5 lbs and hopefully another 5 from there. It was really inspiring to read the Pieces of Me (POM) blog... who lost 40 lbs running! And she looks fabulous! I've always had a losing battle with my weight and well, it's time to do something about it. AGAIN! I've been on various diets ranging from Weight Watchers to using the counting calories methods to low carb diets. When I'm not training for a race, I usually stick to a low carb diet (something like a South Beach) but when I'm training, I do tend up up the carbohydrate intake. I'm going to try something in between this time. Limiting the excess carb and sugar intake (which I've been overdosing on lately) and still do my regular running. I do know how my body reacts when I tend to limit my carbs during training so I'll have to pay close attention. And when I'm watching what I eat, I do tend to eat more vegetables where I do get my much needed carbs and fiber. Of course, on days when I do my 20 miles runs, I may allow myself a burrito... just not the whole thing. ;-)
I know the formula to lose weight. I've done it before. It's just so difficult to maintain and keep up the lifestyle change. I really need to commit to this. I was really motivated to lose the weight for the wedding but now... not so motivated! Of course, for my health and happiness, losing 10 lbs is a great reason.
