No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I have to say... and I've said it before... this is hard.
I *think* I am on the verge of wanting to eat better, not just forcing myself to eat better. Every good day or week I have, pretty much, it's about FORCE. But the force method doesn't last. And it's exhausting to be always falling off the wagon, getting back on, and so on and so forth.
It would be great just to come to terms with the fact that, for me, grains, dairy, and sugar don't work. Even in moderation. I do feel better when I focus on veggies, and I am never tempted to overeat protein.
It's like I can see the light, I just need to keep moving toward it, toward another way of eating. Latest prompt: A friend, who had lost the same amount of weight as me around the same time, then later gained all of it back, has recently lost all that weight and more. He ramped up his exercise program and is avoiding grains, not necessarily sugar, but definitely grains. Yeah, and he's male, but still.
Meanwhile, I had homefries with cheese and onions for breakfast. Only on the VERGE. Not there yet. (And it always comes down to planning- I was STARVING because I skipped dinner last night, and had nothing on hand for my good breakfasts).
Today I read Dr. Barbara (refusetoregain.com) who always reminds me that exercise is wonderful- prolongs life and decreases disease risk- but weight (and other health indicators) is mostly about what you eat.
Working on it, Dr. Barbara. Working on it.
