Weight Loss or Pizza

I feel silly that I even tried this, but I figured what could it hurt to try. Let’s jump back a few steps then I’ll tell you what I did.

I want to lose the weight again, but I don’t think I feel the same motivation as I did before for a couple of a reasons, nor do I have (or maybe even want to make) the time to prepare meals ahead of time.

Before I became pregnant, my willpower and desire to lose weight was so strong. I stuck to the diet so strictly and worked out just as astringently. I had such determination and grit. Now, not so much. After losing the weight and becoming pregnant, I ended up with gestational diabetes and on another strict diet to control my blood sugar. I didn’t mind the diet, but while pregnant, I wanted pizza so badly! I love my daughter more than pizza, so I stuck to the diet as much as I could and managed to keep my sugar in check then deliver a happy, average size baby! During that time of deprivation, though, I think budded this desire to eat all the foods I couldn’t have. Fast forward to now, and you see my problem. I missed chocolate and pizza!

Time on the other hand is honestly _0jpjeqtsyg-carissa-ganbecause of what I would rather do than cooking and preparing food. I’d rather be playing with my daughter, taking her places, experiencing the world with her than cooking. I’d rather watch a movie with my husband, write a novel, or go out with friends than Pyrex my meals for the week. Lastly, I’d much rather SLEEP than workout. Thus, my dilemma.

I did some research, and like a silly, desperate person, I ordered a diet fad pill called Nutri-Fast Garcinia and Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar. I tried so hard to drink the apple cider vinegar, but I just can’t make myself do it! I literally almost gag every time. I got it down this morning, but at lunch, I just couldn’t do it again. The pill is easy to take, but will it be enough? I’m trying to eat healthier, smaller portions, and I want to get back on my elliptical, but time is always against me. I have a stand-up desk at work now, so I’m hoping that will help as well, but I think I just need to bite the bullet, and find my motivation to just get it done! I know its possible, so I just need to want to do it. (But I’m giving up on the ACV.)

What are your weight loss secrets? Have you tried the apple cider vinegar trick?
