So I followed all your advise and drank lots of water yesterday and ate right. I even passed up the homemade chili and cornbread that my step son made. Which I could have eaten as far as Gluten free goes but I just wanted to get the bloat off from eating out so much lately. The good news is I was down 2 pounds today to my happy 106. So that really does show you how much salt and "stuff" is in restaurant food.
I am having a great time here in Pennsylvania with the grandkids. The only thing that really bugs me is watching how addicted my granddaughter is to junk food, especially sugar. I love her so much that I don't want her to go through what I went through as a teenager and being so heavy. I so wish that back then we had the knowledge of what to do to get "off" the junk and to treat it as a drug...which is what I do now. I know that once I start eating it I can't stop. Anyway when we are in charge of the children after school and before school, I don't let them eat all the junk. I so tell them they can have something healthy and they are learning what "Nama" will let them have and the good news is that they love fruit and veggies. But my DIL buys all kinds of junk. She herself likes junk but is a runner and that helps. Funny thing too is that she just approached me as she wants to lose a little weight and was asking my advise....well I was honest and said that she had to stop eating the bags of Sunchips she eats. I told her when she eats them that there is no nutritional value in them and that she craves more and more because her body is looking to be satisfied with something good for it. So I am proud of her and she hasn't had them for like 5 days. I also told her to write down everything she ate. She liked that idea so I ordered her a little book on Amazon that is a food diary. She is using it and likes it. Now don't get me wrong...she is a tiny person and doesn't have much to lose but she doesn't want to be like her mom who is obese. Anyway it's all about food here and constant eating and eating junk. I just keep my mouth shut as I don't want to interfere. I just do what I can while I am in charge of the kids. I will be here to help my granddaughter when she or if she wants my help if she becomes a fat teenager. I know I will be able to help her not suffer like I did.
I hope you all are doing just great and had a good week end.
Jack Frost here this morning. Chilly!
Have a great day and wonderful week
