Eat carbs only and lose weight???

you hear about all these low carb, high fat diets but what about a high carb, low fat diet? The “potato diet” is just that! This man I have been seeing on social media recently ate only potatoes for an entire year and lost a whole lot of weight. Of course I know I couldn’t do it for that long but I have decided that starting tomorrow I am going to eat only potatoes for a week maybe longer. I am the type of person that if I have many food option ill chose them all! with the potato diet you have one option… potatoes. in this process your suppose to lose your cravings and still be full and satisfied. I am really nervous and excited to try this out. I will also be documenting my weight and how I feel during this process. the reason I decided to do this is because here lately I cant seem to stay on track. I keep wandering into the bottom of a chip bag and I desperately need help getting out.

struggles of my past

like I have mentioned before I have struggled with my weight for a long time! believe it or not I actually lost quite a bit of weight a few years ago but I gained it back sadly. even with the amount of weight I lost at one point I still thought I was fat and now I’m like GIRL! you may say “well why don’t you just go back to doing what you did before”, let me tell you times have changed! the summer before my sophomore year of high school I was desperate to lose weight because I was on the volleyball team and my coach decided to get spandex shorts the following year. when I found that out I pictured myself squeezing my thick thighs in some little bitty shorts, yeah not pretty. what I did before was not healthy I was starving myself and it can back to bite me and hard!

looking at this picture now it makes me cringe! I can not believe how disgusted I was with the way looked and to think now that I have gained it all back! I have to constantly remind myself that life is full of ups and downs and I will get to the size I am comfortable with! you can not allow the pot holes of life give you a blow out, you have to keep moving and keeping remembering why you started. that is why I gained what I lost back because I was so down on myself and I turned to food to comfort me even though I had made progress. I am ready and eager to fight back! whos with me?!
