This is the hard part of making a lifestyle change. It really is. To keep up with this kind of a massive change and keeping to a plan day after day after day is really tough.
Let’s just say I’ve not been doing well.
Here’s what I’m learning and, well, relearning:
- Buffets and potlucks are deadly to me
- My impulse control is low
- Portion sizes in packaged foods are way too large
- I’m a food addict
I’ve been on this earth some time and I’ve been hung over a few times. Not a lot, but enough to know what it feels like. And yesterday I was hung over, but not from alcohol, no, from food. I felt lethargic, my stomach was roiling, head throbbing, and even knowing that continuing to eat badly was not going to help, I kept on doing it.
If that’s not addiction, I don’t know what is.
