Here I go again!

I'm sorry I've been neglecting you diary, but the weight loss is really not going well, I weigh the same now as I did in May last year, at least I've maintained, lol.

I've been doing a lot of research though and as a woman with polycystic ovaries, I turn carbohydrates into sugar which then give me terrible sugar rushes and crashes, so I've decided to try the South Beach diet which is a low GI, low carb diet.

We'll see at weigh in how it's working for me, lol. I do feel so much better not eating bread and potatoes, I don't feel so dog tired all the time, but maybe that's just psychological.

I'm a bit confused by the diet at the moment, what can I have, what can't I have? I know I can't have bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, but according to the diet I can have some of these things in moderation, but I can't moderate these foods, so I think I'm going to try to live without them, or at least without bread and potatoes and I'm going to try and live without rice and pasta, or at least just have it occasionally. The only pasta I can have is really expensive, so that should curb my enthusiasm for it, lol.

It does mean a totally different way of eating though as I live on bread, stir fries, pasta and sauce. I can still have pitta and wraps, so that's good. And the summer is coming, so I can learn to live with salads as long as they taste good.

Nice to see you blogging again - I always wonder how your doing.
I know what its like to have PCOS and its such a bind as it makes loosing and maintaing the weight loss a constant battle.
Have heard that SB diet is the best when you have this condition but the thought of not having certain foods is a tough one!
Take care and good luck with this new chapter in your weight loss journey x
