That said, I’m again glad I did: Down another 2.4 pounds this week.
The loss punts me into a new “decade” — the 210s. Finally! I wondered if I’d ever make it back there.
All it took was a total diet overhaul, in the form of eliminating grains, dairy and all forms of sugar.
Hmm. Seems like every time I lose weight (and then regain it), I have to try an even more extreme way of eating to take it off the next time. I had great success with Atkins the first time around, losing 110 pounds in two years on the plan … but when I fell off the wagon and tried to hop back on, I only lost 40 pounds in a year.
Maybe it’s because I was more lax the second time around? With Whole30, there’s no room for lax. You don’t eat certain foods, period.
That’s exactly what I need.
The question that’s been nagging me a bit since Tuesday’s little trip: Do I have to start counting from Day One again since I accidentally ordered cheese on a burger?
