Forty-three must be the magic number. Used to be, I could eat any ol’ thing. Now? My foods of choice are clinging to my mid-section for all the world to see.
Changing Food Habits
When I was growing up, I literally got fruit once a year. Santa brought it. Stuffed it in my stocking. How do I change that eating habit? I told hubby I like green bananas. What does he do? He buys six. Six green bananas. Even if (that’s a big if) I eat one a day, by week’s end they’re turning brown. Natalie tells me I need Debbie Meyer’s Green Bags. Ha! Out of the mouths of babes.
Speaking of Natalie, with her starting school this year, I barely wake up in time to see her off. You know that list-tag that’s going around? List 6 things you do before bed? How ’bout 6 things you do in the morning?
1. Wake up.
2. Sex? Yes, please.
3. Get out of bed.
4. Make Natalie’s lunch.
5. Comb Natalie’s hair.
6. Get Natalie dressed.
My routine used to be 1) same 2) same 3) same 4) make coffee 5) read blogs 6) get on treadmill. (I miss that routine.)
I bought the Bob Green book, The Best Life Diet. Do you know what he says? Don’t read this book until you’re ready to diet. So… I sat that aside.
I had great success with the Slim-Fast website, until they tried to revamp it. Now, instead of being able to view your entire week’s meals, you can only view the current day’s meals. Pfffffttt!!!
You know who else gets a raspberry? Nutri-System.
Four reasons I hate Nutri-system:
1. The food tastes like dog food.
2. It doesn’t include everything I need. Where’s my bread, fruits and vegetables?
3. Where’s the chocolate you promised me?
4. I didn’t lose weight.
SparkPeople held my interest for a little while. I pledged allegiance to the free diet plan, but soon I wasn’t even signing in to spin their wheel.
So… What works for you, and what gets the Golden Raspberry?
