Well, not mortified by it, but noticing this. Some things I gave up, I try them again on a cheat day and think this doesn't taste good to me now or it doesn't taste as good as I thought it did, or I don't feel as good eating this, or bread makes me feel tired. I think I'm learning that eating healthier is a good thing!

The constant stops to whatever fast food restaurant was the quickest so I could get home, feed my son then go to sleep because I was so depressed that I was obese and felt sorry for myself. The horrible habits that I taught my son and how I let the depression of being obese rule my world.

A few weeks ago I read my old food journal from a couple years ago. It read something like this' Breakfast- 3 slices leftover pizza while watching Dr, Oz. Mid morning snack- half bag of Doritos. Lunch-Hot Pockets, Coke. Dinner 4 pcs Deep-Fried chicken, Fries, Coke. Evening Snack- 3 scoops ice cream w/ hersheys syrup and chocolate chips. And that not counting the cokes, munchies/ mini candy bars (minis are diet friendly, right? NOT if a entire bag is consumed in one day!) and whatever I ate in between that! At that time I weighed 296 lbs and looked/ felt like a beach ball in clothing! I knew if I didn't gain control of what I ate and began to care about myself, it would cost me my health. I was So Grossed out reading my earlier entries! I'm Not Joking! This is one of my Real Entries!! It was really Bad!
No such thing as "bad foods"- just bad choices. Bye-bye Highest weight of 295 lbs. Never Going Back! The Journey Continues!

Sausage Egg McMuffin with hashbrowns and a Dr. Pepper for breakfast almost every day of the week. Would make sure I left the house before the cutoff time for McD breakfast. I let a clown control my life!! :)

Hmmmm....probably stopping at McDonalds or Burger King for milk shakes when I wasn't even hungry!
For years I was a vegetarian, meaning I didn't eat meat but I still ate eggs and cheese. Once I woke up to the cruelty and death caused by these things, I gave them up and went vegan. It was hard to do - I really loved cheese, cheddar and brie especially - but a month after I did, all my lifelong asthma and hayfever symptoms disappeared (and no, it hadn't been a dairy allergy - I had been tested many times), and since then I've rarely been sick.
I used to not be able to resist cheese, and now I can't even look at it without feeling sick!

When I was little, I would make PB&J with layers of butter. Embarassing in retrospect.

I deeply regret not making better health choices as I raised my son - for him and me both. I wasn't always 100lbs overweight and could have lived an entirely different life by just choosing better nutrition and exercising regularly. This is bad enough that I've done it to myself. But I raised my son with those same bad habits and now he struggles too. It's said you do what you know to do. And when you know better, you do better. This is my plan. I have apologized to my son for not teaching him how to make better health choices for himself. He is otherwise a wonderful man and I'm proud of him in all ways. And now that I know better, I'm doing better and hoping my example will help him do the same.
Making irresponsible choices. Especially when there are always better choice items available.
If the journey was easy I wouldn't appreciate the benefits I reap.

Too many to count, but in my younger days, one of my favorite treat meals (every Friday) was a Pizza hut pan one pizza with extra cheese and an order of breadsticks dipped in ranch dressing.
I also drank the Panera Icy Mocha drinks (a medium or large) with extra whipped cream at least three times a week.

A lot of things, too many to mention when it comes to eating habits. But one thing that comes to my mind is buying candy bars that sit there staring at you when you are about to check out in the grocery store. It has probably been 20 years since I have bought those for myself but I vaguely do remember that I did it.
Well I was overeating and emotionally eating. I have been a relationship for a long time and it has deteriorated. I was fat and unhappy and went into to debt for that not so good retail shopping void i had. Now I have to pay those bills and it sucks. Since November I went on a diet and since then I have built my confidence and ate right and saved money doing it and exercise more. I saw my partner less and I am feeling good and free of the weight from the relationship and the fat. No alcohol between emotional and weight gain it had to go. I worked hard to get where I am today and people have noticed and I feel really good about it.

I'm mortified at the thought of how much ketchup I used to eat. I literally put it on everything. I could easily finish off a huge bottle in a couple of weeks. I don't even want to think about how much HFCS I ingested. ditto for Diet Coke. I didn't think twice about drinking 2 liters of the stuff a day, every day.

I am mortified by how much food I used to eat. No regard whatsoever for calories, content or anything of that nature. When I had a job, I ate fast food all the time. After work, my DH and I would eat out quite often because we were too tired to fix something at home and we lived right off of hamburger row. I'm truly surprised I didn't weigh 600 pounds.

That would definitely have to be smoking. I try not to be a jerk about it, but I literally have trouble breathing around cigarette smoke, after being a smoker for about 15 years. I quit 11 years ago cold-turkey. (Read my blog post about Pookie.) I took a drag of my sister's cigarette once, and almost choked.

I used to eat a meal from yesterdays left overs (and I always made sure there were enough leftovers) every day when I came home from work and a couple hours later I would eat a full meal. Now that much food mortifies me, both as to the expense and especially the calories.
When I was a teenager I would skip breakfast and often lunch. As an adult with a teenage daughter, I would be very concerned about her if she had that kind of habit.

As far as food goes, I can't believe how frequently I would eat one or TWO pints of Ben & Jerry's - often times, one right after the other if it tasted especially good! One day, I did just that. Then about 4 hrs later, I polished off a third pint. Holy Moly!! That's a gazillion calories!
For a non-food-related habit: I am ashamed to say, I used to be late a lot. Grew up like that. It was normal. Then one day, it just hit me how incredibly rude is was to be so disrespectful of other people's time. Now I have a reputation for being early!

On my way home from work, to dinner that was prepared for us, I would stop at a drive through and order 2 cheeseburgers and eat them in the parking lot. Then I would go home to dinner. It was as if I was afraid that there would not be enough for dinner to satisfy me, or that I would not want to eat in front of others all that I felt I needed. My car has not been allowed into a drive through for many years now.
Eating a double serving of cold cereal with gobs of peanut butter in it before I went to bed. o_O!?

When I was in the 260s-270s in my second pregnancy, EVERY NIGHT I would sit down and watch Discovery Channel and eat half a large jar of the salsa con queso cheese dip and a huge serving of chips. Every night.
As someone with blood pressure, diabetes, pregnant with weight issues, I was ashamed every day. But for some reason I still did it. I did have mental issues with food at that point.
Thankfully, both of my girls are very healthy!

Don't get me started! I could go on and on. When I think back to how I used to eat, I wonder who that unhappy person was; too much emo eating, and I was so knowledgeable about nutrition and what I should eat, but I was a closet eater and addicted to sugar. That was a long time ago. I wish I could go back in time and tell my past self that everything would turn out okay, beyond my wildest dreams actually!
I've been thinking about how I used to eat breakfast before deciding to be more mindful of what I eat. I'm mortified that I used to buy two rather large jelly donuts (fried in lard, mind you) every single day with few exceptions. I'm really happy that I don't stick those 800 calories of fat and sugar in my mouth anymore.
