Bread is the Devil
According to the scale this morning, I am down another pound, making my total weight loss 8.2 pounds so far. Not a ton of weight over 2 months but slower is better I'm told.
The biggest reason I am losing again after a short plateau is painful to admit: I have broken up with bread. And pasta. And chips, pretzels and any other "dry carb" with the exception of 94% fat-free popcorn in moderation. As much as I love those things and should be able to have them on WW and still lose weight, I can't. They trigger me to eat more and truly seem to metabolize differently in my system. Now, don't get me wrong - I'm not on a low-carb diet, am just following Weight Watcher's CORE which encourages healthy amounts of the right carbs. Bread is not one of those.
I learned this lesson once before, 5 years ago when I dropped 20+ pounds, wish I'd stuck to it and not allowed the evil back into my life! Hopefully this time I can stick to my guns and resist the temptation for good.
