Back on track today. I had the day off from work. I went grocery shopping and did some food prep. I also joined a gym. I did 30 minutes of cardio today - 15 on elliptical and 15 on bicycle. Just that 30 minutes was too hard. I know I have so far to go, but I have to start somewhere, right? I'm looking forward to trying some of the fitness classes.
My lesson learned from this is not every diet is right for everyone. I spent too much time on carb cycling trying to figure out what I could eat on which day and with what. I would last a couple of weeks and then mess up, regain and have to start all over. South Beach is more straight forward. I'm hoping I can stick with this. I have to stick with this. I can not gain anymore weight.
