I'm sure you've all heard this quote before and I just have to say that it is just not right. Now that I have been at a healthy weight for the last six months, I've come to really enjoy the special indulgences that I allow myself. Today, my wife made muffins. She made a few special ones for me without the extra brown sugar, but apparently they were too go to pass up for my little 2 yr. old. I didn't care. I ate the ones with the extra brown sugar and I am glad I did. It is something that I don't get everyday. Thin feels good, but food still tastes better. I am changing my tastes for sure, enjoying fruit and veggies a lot more than in the past, but if I had to live on fruit and veggies and never see another frozen custard from Culver's, my life would be much less satisfying.
Food tastes good. I like food. Being thin will never feel as good as tasting something good. Today, I received information about the National Weight Control Registry. I am now eligible since I have maintained a 30 pound loss for a year. I lost my first 30 pounds in early July of last year, so I cheated a bit. The survey was very long and very in depth asking about 200 different foods and how often you eat them, asking about habits both eating habits and exercise habits, asking about family history, and several other questions that are more for statistical purposes. I am looking forward to doing everything I can to remain accountable to myself and being part of the National Weight Control Registry is just another way to stay accountable.
