OK, well Christmas did not go very well. I ate about every delicious thing I laid my eyes on. Oh well, back on the wagon today.

For lunch, I had a veggie burger. I just want to say that I was not really looking forward to eating it. It didn't look all that good, and I'm sure if I had wandered around the cafeteria a little more, I would have found a lot of other options that looked much better (but were much, much worse for me). I just grabbed it though.

I have to say though, that now, after eating it, I feel good about my decision. It was very filling. And light, not greasy. How would I have felt if I had grabbed a bacon cheeseburger instead? I'm sure I would have enjoyed eating that a lot more, but after?

I must remember to think about the whole picture. How food makes me feel doesn't end when it crosses my lips. I feel the effects of food for hours (days?) after I'm done eating it. If I focus more on making that food the kind of fuel I WANT in my body, I'm going to be much happier and much more successful. Just needed to jot this down so I don't forget.

    I have similar issues and as tedious as it is, it has really helped me to track my food, ALL of my food. When I know I am tracking every bite, I definitely feel less inclined in the heat of the moment to eat something I know I'm not supposed to or if I know it will be a total pain to find the nutrition info to track. Just a thought! Keep up the good work!!

    Yes! I also struggled with food this holiday season, and I felt crappy almost the entire month of December because of it. Always had a stomach ache, bowels were always messed up. Not worth it. I've been drinking my water and eating actual food again for only a few days now, and I instantly feel better.

    I agree, food and our choices aren't in the moment because our brain can beat itself up for hours.

    good luck and thanks for posting!
