I bought a bag of potato chips, because they were two for the price of one. Now, if I can be sucked into that type of trap, what about other people in the United States, who have a lot less Spark Education than I have???
Yesterday, I had about an ounce (170 calories) and they just tasted so yummy (with beer)
Today, I had another ounce with lunch, and they did not taste yummy. (with tuna sandwich)
Now, I actually just ate a few and even tossed the rest out. Had they gotten stale? Why didn't they taste so yummy anymore???? No reason to eat anything unless it REALLY TASTES GOOD. (if you think about it, not too many things fit that category)

I feel better so I finally went for a walk after a two week hiatus. I see the pattern now. I am slowly getting better, my mouth still feel burned, but only slightly, not as bad as a few days ago. My eye still feels dry, but is not hurting. And my energy is coming back. I wonder if drinking a lot of water really helped. I better try again today. The only problem is the excessive bathroom time, and my body is not good about holding urine when I sneeze!!!

I feel lazy for some reason, not up to par as normal. My usual activities do not interest me today. Well, now tomorrow is Friday again!!! Another week gone....scary....

For the last 3 days, I have had this feeling as if my mouth were burned, and my right eye really hurts on the right side of it. That feeling like when you were a kid and got a sty in your eye. But no sty. I am also so tired at night that nothing interests me. Wierd for me.
Made the mistake of looking up symptoms on the internet, and there is this strange syndrome some women over 50 tend to get. Autoimmune disease with body not producing enough fluid for mouth and eyes to keep them lubricated. No cure for it. At any rate, I refuse to look any more at the symptoms anymore, maybe they will go away. I am just going to take it easy. Putting hot compresses on my eyes, using Systane, taking hot bath, lighting candles....all this helped!!!
Only good part: food does not taste good when your mouth feels burned, so calories are lower. And, am increasing my water intake big time, thinking maybe that will help.

How can this be? I was just commenting on how great it was to start over on Monday, and now I see tomorrow is another Monday????
Another "self talk" I am initiating is when I am about to reach for candy, I ask myself, "Do I really really want this?" Often, the answer is no. I am reaching out of habit or boredom. If I am really badly craving chocolate, then it is okay for me to have it.
Note: As I have aged, I do not have the intense chocolate cravings I used to have when I was younger. In a way, it is sad. (if you really think about it)
