Day One (again)
Sunday, December 08, 2013
The scale reads 312 pounds. That’s 40 pounds more than last March (2013) and my waist is 59 inches. When it comes to eating food and exercising there is only failure.
Coffee with two sugars and a little milk launched a healthier better life program. Coffee should taste like coffee rather than ice cream. Coffee this morning is half-and-half as cream and high doses of sugar. Coffee may have been present. It tasted great before remembering that coffee needs to taste like coffee and not ice cream. Why I request two sugars instead of a substitute? I do not want to start a cycle with artificial sweeteners that exacerbates my desire for sweets. Weaning off sugars is something I understand.
Breakfast drink is 12 oz. 95% fruit processed in a Vita Mix. Thick and pulpy with very little water. I gulp rather than enjoy it. Fruit malts are evil treats and not breakfast. Today’s change is 1/2 volume water, ½ volume vegetables, and one fruit.
Margaret, my better half, says that she will be on board with a healthier better life program. We cleaned the cupboards and agreed that we do not purchase Costco size chips. She just left to purchase food for breakfast and lunches. I wonder how she will do. I am optimistic but I hope she wants me alive and not dead in the near future.
