Changing Tastes

Friday, October 04, 2013

I have been doing better. As such, my tastes are beginning to change. Which is both good, and a little sad.
I normally have a bottle of pop with my date night pizza. Tonight, I got through about a third of it, and it was just too sweet. I finally made myself a cup of soy with pumpkin chai syrup. emoticon

This is great news that things are starting to change, but it is also a bit sad. This means that my traditions are starting to change. I can't do my Friday soda with my pizza. emoticon

This also means some of my other favorites will probably not be palatable any more. emoticon Fried stuff will be next.

I've been through this once before, before I got pregnant. I stopped worrying so much about whether some of what I ate was sugary or whatnot back then. Towards the end of the pregnancy, the only thing that could settle my stomach was a sip or two of something bubbly, and most times that ended up being soda cause we had the vending machine in the apartment complex.

So this an NSV, but it's a bittersweet one. My body is beginning to prefer fruit over candy, as it should. But it's weird; I am so used to enjoying candy, and cake, and things like that. It's a head thing as well - I have to change the way I think as well.

When we get healthier (note I did NOT say Loosing weight), there are lots of odd changes we have to make, aside from something like buying new clothes. Like how we think about food, our bodies, so many other things.

We begin to enjoy thing we didn't think we would, like water, and fruit. emoticon

    You know, I never thought of it in quite this way before--it's an eye-opener. Thanks so much for the post--it validates some feelings I've been having lately. emoticon

    emoticon I remember when I first started SP several years ago. I was definitely NOT a water drinker. After about 6 months went by of drinking water instead of my diet Pepsi., I decided to have one. I took one sip and threw the rest away because it tasted so bad. Haven't gone back yet and don't regret giving it up!

    Congratulations on making changes that are so good for you!

    I do understand what you mean about giving things up. Even though I understand that things are not good for me and for the most part no longer even desire them, there is a sadness about letting them go. Sometimes there is an emotional attachment because it was a symbol, or because it was part of a treasured event, or because it was connected with a certain person/activity/time of year.

    My husband is a fried fruit super chef and now as soon as I am finished having anything fried I get sick to my stomach. I also finally tried a pumpkin spiced latte and got sick after 1/4 of it. Sad, but happy my body loves me more than it loves fried food or pumpkin spiced latte.
