Eating more is somehow harder for me. Not that I was doing so great before, but all the *options* now and the relaxation of strictness makes me want to eat, and eat. Thankfully so far what I've been eating a lot of is vegetables; five servings a day plus 2 servings of fruit is a LOT of produce. But still, I keep thinking about eating a bowl of chips or a sub or a plate of fries. I don't do it, but my brain keeps going there. I just want to eat, not one banana, but a banana cream pie. Not a cup of coffee with Splenda and a tablespoon of half and half, but a huge sweetened latte with some biscotti. I dunno why my brain goes there but today I spent a heck of a lot of time doing yard work, cleaning toilets, doing laundry, and doing other housework just to try and focus my brain off food that would not be good for me. Sometimes I think it really is a wonder I haven't gained it all back.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
