Yesterday I cleaned out the fridge before going to the commissary. It felt so good to toss old bottles and half empty ones and wipe out the crumbs and spills! My husband didn't recognize it as our refridgerator. Then we went grocery shopping and stocked up on healthy foods, lots of veggies and fruits and just plan basics. After binging for about 9 months and eating and drinking what I pleased, it is time to regress and get back on the diet track. I rejoined the Sonoma Diet online and printed out their food shopping list and menus. I really like that way of eating and had been successful previously. There is no calorie counting. You eat by plate and bowl size and it is similar to the Mediterranean Way. You don't have to count points either. Your dinner plate consists of half veggies, 1/4 of protein and 1/4 of whole grains. Snacks are scheduled and healthy as well. Their shopping list included all the ingredients for a weeks worth of planned menus which makes things easy.
I like many others, have tried every diet on the face of the earth. I realize, once again, that I have to eat less junk food and more healthy food. If I hadn't been diligent in trying out different diets over the years, I would probably weigh over 300 lbs. But at least I kept rejoining and being successful in different endeavours. My problem is not being patient enough when the pounds don't come off. After months of eating right and nothing moves, it gets real frustrating. Thus, giving up and binging.
I have a little hope in that I have changed medications and gotten rid of the nasty one that causes weight gain and probably kept weight on me for so many years. But I realize, just making that change isnt' going to majically help me lose weight. I have to participate in the program. Yesterday, I bought fresh Georgia peaches and tomatoes. Yummy! The peach I had last night was so juicy and sweet! Better than ice cream. Have a great Sunday. Later.
