Here we go with another challenge at the Sisterhood. I am still on Nutrisystem and as much as I love it - 14 pounds gone so far - I am getting tired of just having Nutrisystem food. So I looked around and found that the South Beach diet is based on the Low Glycemic thing too so I will be switching to that after I finish off the NS food. (I have a couple of weeks worth left)
The South Beach is another low carb thing, but they do mostly good versus bad carbs so I hope I do okay with it. The first two weeks is almost no carbs at all so we shall see how my energy level handles that. I tried Atkins a while back and I was so tired all the time and I found out that it was because I wasn't getting any carbs. After the first two weeks, you can eat good carbs and that is what I am doing now with NS.
I did really well on the last challenge and although I gained 2 pounds at Christmas, I am back on track and going strong.
I am determined not to get Diabetes. It is such a horrible disease and has run wild throughout most of my family that I know I have to be careful in how I eat. I was glad that it looked like I was taking after Mom, but after 82 years, she was diagnosed with it too. That really sucks - she thought that she had dodged that bullet. So now I am more focused on getting healthy.
