Back in My Skinny Jeans

I don’t do Kimkins. I eat. Beef, pork, chicken thighs. Plenty of fats. As much veggies as I want. The only thing I limit is carbs and I’m not even strict with that.

I don’t count anything. As I have found out, what I eat will not make much of a difference for me. Only exercise seems to have any effect. I wrote about that yesterday: Kimkins No Exercise Diet

Sure, if I would follow the Kimkins starvation diet, I would have to lose weight. How could I not? But at what cost? I’m not willing to find out. I’m not willing to set myself up for years of obsessing with food and freaking out when the scale shows a gain from having a salad. Not to mention health consequences from not getting enough nutrition.

Coincidentally, fitting into my skinny jeans also put me back at my goal weight. It’s just that I don’t really have a goal weight. I really don’t care what the scale says as long as my clothes are not too tight.

As has been pointed out many times, nobody sees what our scale weight is. They only see our size. For some reason, this is never mentioned on Kimkins. There you should see the scale going down every single day. If not, you are a failure. Cheating? Not measuring right? Did you pack the lettuce in the cup instead of taking a “finger grab”? You must not want it bad enough.

Size is a much better measure, for me. It was actually these jeans that alerted me of my weight gain last fall. The scale didn’t show much of a difference, initially, but the jeans did.
