Yesterday was quite the ramble... sorry. I just had so much going on in my pretty little head I couldn't get it all straight. The summary... I am going to go back to what worked for me - Calorie counting with Loseit! and running.
I also had a sad realization... vitamins aren't for me. I have been counthing the hell out of my calories for the last month without dropping an ounce. I was getting frustrated and felt like nothing was working. I wanted to give up, throw in the towel and accept being a fatty for life. Then I did something odd and amazing... I stopped taking all my pills. I stopped taking the vitamin B, C, Acidophilus, D and CLA... all prescribed by my naturopath (whom I still adore). I stopped taking them and I have consistently lost weight and inches. I stopped taking them and I sleep through the night, I don't feel clouded and I have more energy. Now I don't believe vitamins are bad, I do believe I am deficent in several areas because of my diet, but something about the above combination did not agree with my body and I will no longer be taking any of them.
