So 2 years after I lost weight with L.A. Weight Loss, I had gained all the weight back. I was on my binge phase. I ate mostly doughnuts, cakes, and fast food. I was up to 155 pounds. I looked up L.A. Weight Loss but they had shut down their stores by then. I adapted their diet plan. So for breakfast, I would have half of a 100 calorie bagel with some butter on it. I would either have an apple or applesauce with it and then 8 oz. of milk. For a snack in between breakfast and lunch, I would have a 100 calorie snack pack. For lunch, it would either be 3 cups of spinach and 3 ounces of fish or 2 cups of lettuce and 4 ounces of chicken. I found that salad dressing had too many calories in it so I started to use the honey mustard sauce instead for salad dressing. Another 100 calorie snack pack in between lunch and dinner. For dinner, it was either 1/2 cup cooked vegetables and some meat. I basically ate like that until I lost 30 pounds. I could only keep up with this diet for about 7 months. I found that when I said no to foods that I liked, I would get this weird high. I felt in control and powerful because I could say no to bad foods. At the time I thought I was in control but I wasn’t. It made me feel good, when people said that I looked like I was losing weight. There would come a point, every day that I would feel like I was about to pass out. My ears would start ringing and I would feel faint. I didn’t pass out, I just took 2 deep breaths and the feeling would pass. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I would do an hour of cardio. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I would do pilates. I would also drink about 5 or 6 water bottles a day.
