I am half the person that I used to be
I am such a loser
I have lost so much
These all sound like such negative statements but when it comes to weight loss there are many of us that would love to say this, except for my eldest daughter and my big (little) sister who are part alien and STRUGGLE TO PICK UP WEIGHT. I know they are family and I should be kind and supportive, but the asshole in me is jealous.
Any way I will soon be able to use the above statements.
The jeans are getting looser and looser.
Two months and going strong. I have a blogger friend whose name I won't mention, cough cough Rachel, who tortures me by blogging about the most delicious cakes and treats you have ever seen. Alright I admit she does warn me but then I have to go and look why she is warning me. If you are in the same boat as I am go and look at Eternally 28 and have fun feeling sorry for yourself.
Things I have learned that may help:
- Eating vicariously does not work, seeing that Michael is like my other half I have given him the cakes and things to eat. Nope I don't feel any joy, I just want to rip the treat from him and scoff it down.
- Use your imagination, NO NO NO don't imagine giant chocolate cakes with ice cream and stuff like that, think up things that you can eat and make yourself a treat. I made myself a low carb apple pie the other day and it was yummy (not settling nice, but real delicious yummy).
- Don't buy dietary ready made meals, every single one I have tried had zero taste. Their ads should say this meal has been stripped of all carbs, all cholesterol and all taste. I think a tablet meal would be preferable.
A few more months and I will tell random strangers:
"I am a shadow of my former self"
They will look at me with sympathy and think, is the skinny, strange creature sick.
Then I will say:
"And it is great"
Random stranger will walk away shaking his or her head.
