No Middle Ground
Saturday, July 23, 2011
So I'm sitting here reading the message boards. Many of the posts are about people struggling to stay on program. I know that place so very well. There are times that I eat and eat until I feel (and LOOK) like I'm about to give birth. Then I go and look for something else to eat.
And then there are days like yesterday and today when I am in total control. I'm a food snob, deeming everything unworthy of my WW points. I'm a miser, saving my priceless points for only the best tasting, most satisfying, and hopefully nutritious, fare. Which, of course, I don't happen to have on hand.
But there is no middle ground for me. I just want to be "normal" in my eating habits. I want to eat healthy meals and snacks that I enjoy. Regularly. I want portion control to come as naturally as breathing. I want grocery shopping to be enjoyable instead of something I dread as much as a trip to the dentist.
I've been on Spark People for three years, and on Weight Watchers for eight years. I know this is a lifestyle change, not a diet. But when is my lifestyle going to get the memo?
