No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I have been behaving when I wanted to give in. I had some temptations that I did not let throw me off track. I have been eating well and I am proud of that. I am cutting portions, which I never thought I would. This is the new me. The old me would have caved when she had some M and Ms over the weekend. She would have said the heck with it when she had some dark chocolate. BUT, this new me has decided to live with herself being human. Yep, I mess up. But, I have not had Ice Cream for a week. That just did not happen in the old days. What I am finding when I eat ice cream now, after being free from it for a week, is that it really does not taste all that good. So, having it as a treat rarely is working very well. Soon I will not "need" it at all. I am finding I like greek yogurt much better! I don't get the phlegmed up feeling from yogurt that I get when I eat the ice cream. I know that ice cream has changed over the years. And, in recent years, it has gotten much worse! It is so full of additives that it really, truly, honestly does NOT taste good to me anymore. Now I just have to make sure I think of that when it comes time to have the urge to eat it once a week. The last time, to be honest, It gave me a tummy ache and gas! So the next move will be to STOP before I eat it....to remember that the gas will be coming if I do make that choice. Gee, how things can change when a person makes a good choice! Hope you are having a good week. This Tuesday I am grateful that my INR reading was right where it should be. I am grateful that this yucky cold I have is getting better. I am grateful it is not snowing! Have a good week! We can do this!
