I started blogging a year and a half ago for one reason and one reason only. To keep the weight off that I had lost. I figured that it would be mortifying to gain the weight back if I was public about being healthy AND that the constant having to think about and write about food and health would keep me on the straight and narrow.
Has it worked? Yes, mostly. But not entirely. I don’t know any of the stats because I too darned scared to get on a scale, but I’m pretty sure that “the weight” is creeping back on. My clothes feel a little tight. My stomach sticks out a little further.
It’s time to get a grip.
This Plant-strong food tastes too darned great! All of the people who are eating fast food and thinking they could never give it up, well they have no idea how delicious a plant-based diet can be if you just give it a chance. And when food tastes this good, I find it hard not to overindulge.
Not only that, I’m giving myself too many allowances. Allowances for goodies on special occasions. Allowances for too many plant-indulgent dinners when what I should really be eating is low calorie soup and salad–without the nuts.
So thank you blogging world. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to catch myself before it’s too late. I am at your mercy. I have to once again focus my energy on what I know works:
1. The Beck Diet Solution
2. Eat to Live
