Whew, two in a row with the same theme...slipsliding away? Or just giving myself a little break from all this constant thinking about food and what to do and what not to do. I mean, it gets old. (smiling) Okay, I started this oh-so-much-fun adventure last October 13 (Columbus Day - a new lifetime adventure for me was the symbolism). Prior to that time, I was a lifelong person who didn't eat breakfast. Just wasn't hungry. Of course, we know what that means - HUGE hunger pangs and large quantities of food at other meals. But since I'd never gained weight (until the past few years), I never realized the value of breakfast. Since October 13, '08, I haven't missed a day without breakfast. It has made all the difference in the world in controlling insulin levels, energy, food intake the rest of the day, etc. However, for the past three days, I have not felt like eating breakfast and did not force myself to - even though I know better. Need I say more about what the rest of the day has been like? I'd better kick my own butt and stop this stuff. I have HATED being fat for the first time in my life these past few years, and if I keep this up... YIKES! I think I am rebelling like a little kid against some of the pressures in my life. No excuse. This cannot continue.
