Last week before heading out of town, I finally made My Big Carb Confession about how, for months after losing my mother and reeling from My Bittersweet Last Year with Mom, I stopped walking my clean-carbs talk.

empoweringAlthough in my grief, trauma and anguish, I NEVER had sugar as I had in 1998, suddenly, Crazy Carb Cravings™ pounced on me, and I mindlessly shoveled in movie popcorn, corn nuggets and onion rings.

This week, I wrote a follow-up post to thank prolific blogger and podcaster Sean Croxton for inspiring me to make my Confessions of a Health Expert.

Now, this morning, after continuing to eat only wholesome foods and beverages and cranking up my workout routine, I lost yet another pound.

This was exciting news. I finally hit my previous weight, the one before Mom became terminally ill. Woo Hoo!

Evidently, confessing about my carb relapse so publicly has been quite cleansing.

  • First, in a post on this Sugar Shock Blogg, I made My Big Carb Confession.
  • Then, over the weekend, without planning to do it, fueled by courage, I spontaneously admitted to some 100-plus fellow health experts that I’d had a carb relapse. (This was at an amazing event presented by JJ Viirgin, one of the nation’s foremost fitness and nutrition experts and bestselling author of The Virgin Diet.).

Of course, confessing is an important part of most religions, but owning up to my carb “sinning” in such a public way, first on this Sugar Shock Blog and then to other health experts has unleased a tremendous enthusiasm, passon and power in me.

Not only did I shed more weight, but at long last, I finished the preface to my next book, How this Book Came to Be: My Tale of Trauma, Temptation and Triumph.

I’ve been working on this very challenging section of the book for more than a year, and I’ve rewritten it at least dozens of times.

Stay tuned for a blog post to learn How to Break a Weight-Loss Plateau (something I experienced).
