I shared this with a Spark friend, and decided to let my other Spark friends know where I came from to start this fight, and it was not pretty. I was on my way to a heart attack or stroke, the numbers don't lie.
This is how a trip to the grocery store was for me over 6 months ago. Mon: buy grocery's, get 2 eclairs. Tue: buy something to make fried (anything) Get small cake, that can be eaten at one sitting. Wed: Go through fast food get either a burger with fries, or KFC 3 piece extra crispy, and 2 of their dessert cups. Or stop by grocery store to get ice cream and Fudge topping. Thurs: Go to grocery and pick up a pasta something, and maybe some cookies, or chips and dip, anything to watch tv with. Fri: Special night special something from the grocery store. Pizza and something for dessert as always. Week ends were usually JITB or KFC or any of the fast foods plus dessert. Sunday was Chinese take out, or I would make dinner which usually included mashed potatoes and gravy. And of course my favorite dessert, Banana pudding with vanilla wafers. Do you see any vegetables in there? And if I were in the mood to eat a certain thing, I didn't hesitate to go to the store, or fast food. And during the day I ate chips and dips, or any sweets candy bars anything I had stashed. Breakfast was a muffin at least a 400/500 calorie one with coffee and creamer. Or it was bacon and eggs the works, pancakes or a sugar laden cereal bowl or two (mostly two) Nothing healthy here at all. Oh and of course doughnuts ruled several times a week. I went through a had to have bacon, almost every day. Found the end pieces in the meat section for $4 bucks a shot was perfect for that. MY TYPICAL WEEK, anyone else see themselves here?
So see what was happening to me, and how my diagnosis came about? This is the way I ate.
It all stopped March 20th 2013, cold turkey. And I have had no cravings for sugar or any of that type of food since. And I blame all of that on the addiction I had to sugar and processed foods. You ask how I do it? I chose life.
