Hello Everyone! Did you all survive the holiday foods? I just planned to eat the things I loved but within moderation. I was moderately successful! :o) Have you ever noticed that some foods make you *feel* good when you eat them? I find that I cannot get the same feeling from Zucchini as I do from homemade cookies! lol I know some people crave veggies. What is their secret? Were they born that way? Was it learned? Are any of you veggie cravers? I do crave good fresh food after I have had too many chemical, processed foods. And I am finding that some store bought nummies, like candy bars, don't satisfy the way they used to and are holding less temptation because they taste like chemicals to me. However, the same type of things homemade - calls my name and tempts me. So, there is still a lot of work to be done in that department.
I did make some discoveries about myself though. Even though I ate goodies, I did not pig out on them. And one morning I had a couple of homemade pecan bar cookies for breakfast, but then was full and did not eat anything else until lunch. In the past I would have had those pecan bars and then I would have eaten something else. While it's not great progress to eat pecan bars for breakfast (Hey! Bill Cosby says chocolate cake is okay!), still it is progress from where I was in the past. I am sure that I am not the only person struggling in this area. These are all baby steps, but I figure that a baby step forward is better than standing still. And standing still is better than sliding backwards!
So, my weight check post Thanksgiving is... 321! Yeah!
Now to get below 320# I have gotten this far before and can't seem to push past it. I am determined now!
That's about it for today. I have been up sick most of the night barking/croup-like symptoms, so my brain is foggy. But if you would like to read my reviews of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle or hear about the amazing way I was able to get a Vita-Mix or just peek around, please visit my other blog, My Journey To Wholeness.
