I have heard a number of people say "I don't want to think about this so much. I have food on my mind all the time! I want to live normally!". The only thing I can think to say is 220 lbs is not normal!! Or at least its not the normal I want.
When I quit smoking, quitting smoking was the only thing on my mind. Every minute of every day for the first 3 months I had to recommit to not smoking. I have to make the same commitment to the weight loss. And frankly, I don't spend all that much time thinking about it. I plan for my week and then I stick to my plan, good little robot that I am. If you are planning meal to meal, or daily, it might be harder. If I plan weekly, I really only think about it when I am planning. I can actually log my points a week in advance and know what I am in for for the week. I just have to COMMIT.
Yesterday was the first "real" Weigh In for me since Mom died. I was down .2, better than I was expecting. Between Thanksgiving and catered wakes, I figured I had gained some.
Then I got soooo sick. I went out to breakfast and had an omelet and it did not sit well at all. When I finally did toss it, it was a welcome relief. I hate to retch like that, it makes my entire body ache, but I was glad to be rid of whatever was causing my stomach that much misery. So points yesterday were 0! Nothing stayed down long enough to count.
This morning I feel much better. I just ate an egg and a couple slice of bacon with an Orowheat Sandwich Round. Good Stuff. Happy tummy.
