Hi, my name is Lisa and I am addicted to food.
This is the post where I talk about my love affair with food and how I am having to give it up for the sake of my health and to lose some weight.
I love food. I love most everything, but I especially love chips and salsa, coffee, popcorn, chocolate, salty snacks….have I mentioned that I love chips? BBQ, sour cream and onion, doritoes, cheddar and sour cream, pretzels, ranch, Pringles…..it doesn’t matter the flavor or brand as long as there is a CRUNCH to them. Yes, I love to eat and I especially love the salty snacks.
Moderation? During the week, YES. The weekends, not so much.
Why can I hold it together pretty well during the week, but on the weekends, my healthy eating goes to hell in a handbag? Have you guys ever heard that expression? Did I get it right? Sometimes I get the slang phrase/cliches a little mixed up.
Anyhoo, this past week was no exception. Wed/Th/Fri- I kept up with my food log, writing every down that I ate. Drinking my water, eating in moderation for a nursing mother. Friday evening hit and I went out on a date with my husband to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I had decided beforehand that I would NOT drink any alcoholic beverages so as not to waste calories. That thought flew right out the window once we sat down for dinner. I had not just one, but TWO drinks (boy, were they yummy!). The gluttony started with dinner that night and just continued on through the weekend.
I cannot undo what I have done. I can only make better choices for today. And I will.
Why does the BAD food have to taste so good?
I don’t have any answers for ya’ll. I am POSITIVE that I am not the only one who has this love/hate relationship with food. I love to eat it, I hate it when the fat hits my hips.
Oh yeah, it looks like I am now an official Shrinking Jeans blogger, contributor, weight loss guru (HA!), expert on all things. Man, now I really feel the pressure to do right. If you click on my picture to the right, it will take you to my own SJ blog, where I will post, oh I don’t know, maybe “stuff” and “whatnot”. Be kind to me along the way and make sure to give me a shout-out when you can. I’ll shout right back : ).
