To Diet or not to Diet

I weighed myself this morning and didn't like it. Way heavier than I want to be. I have no self control in regard to food. I love food and it loves me because it always stays around after I eat it. My hormone doctor has recommended that I go on the HCG Diet which supposedly kick starts your metabolism. What do I have to loose (apart form 20 kilos). So I am going to do it. Greg came to the Doctor with me because he had some questions so we are both happy with the research I have done and it is time to bite the bullet and get some self control.
The HCG Diet involves an injection every day and gorging on fatty food for the first three days and then a strict diet for 40 days and then a maintenance diet. It is highly recommended for sugar addicts (Yes that is me) and people who are insulin resistant (also me). I am convinced that if I don't try these injections for the 6 weeks I will be injecting insulin every day.
So we are eating all the crap food around the place so I won't be tempted and then Monday it starts.
I won't have any trouble eating like a pig for three days but the rest of the time eating 500 calories a day could be a struggle. But I am determined to do this so wish me luck and I'll let you know how it goes.

Loads of luck! I do sympathise, it is so much harder to loose weight when you love your food! Andy is a bean pole, but I just look at a biscuit and we become inseperable!
