That attitude in the title of this entry is the problem. You can't expect to change your eating lifestyle unless you really WANT to do it. I am the spoiled little girl stomping her feet and saying, "I don't want to! I don't CARE if I'm fat."
Keep in mind that I'm the one who, when we are watching something on DVR, stops it and backs the thing up to watch the restaurant and fast-food commercials.
Cliff and I are doing fine on this sixth day of eating right, but there have been temptations: Yesterday was the local fundraiser breakfast to put a new roof on our town's post office and foreign legion (or VFW; I always get those mixed up). It's a good thing I forgot about it, that's all I can say. By the time somebody reminded us, we had already had our breakfast.
Today we walked into church and smelled food. Yep, it was their yearly holiday dinner. We didn't stay, dang it. We came home and ate our 500-calorie dinner.
Rachel and Kevin came over this afternoon to visit. They, too, are trying to get back on track. We had a great visit, but would you believe every single conversation led to food?
Example: Me: "Cliff, I think we'll go to the Nelson Art Gallery this week. We'll either take a picnic or we'll get a Subway sandwich."
Example: Rachel: "I had to opt out of email updates from Papa John's. They asked the reason and I chose 'other'. Then I typed in, 'We're on a diet'."
I could give you at least twenty examples, but you get the picture.
Wish us luck.
