Don't sell yourself short. I was a former sweetsaholic, and since I started this journey, I have craved neither sweets, dairy or anything not good for me.
It's a wonder most people don't get on this bandwagon sooner than the diagnosis, I guess with some of us, you have to think like mind over matter. Health or early death (and a miserable one at that) I jumped at it, I was actually scared out of my wits when I left the Dr's.
I cannot believe how my system has changed, I even see decadent desserts and great pasta dishes on TV. And they do not even phase me, my system has reversed itself and is satisfied with vegetables and fruits. I am right now eating grains and still drinking coffee (soy creamer) but will soon go on Eat To Live's 6 week plan and see how I do with that. I have already been on the plan over 5 weeks, no dairy no white foods, no sugar definitely no red meat, no breads and pasta, ( just cereal and grains)
Already seeing the belly fat going. This is a hard area to lose in. But since I started this journey and incorporated walking everyday, it is definitely happening.
Join some of the Sparkteams, I get most of my info from other Spark members either from their experiences or just plain studied knowledge. We have a great support team right here! You can betcha! You will do fine, just make a choice to change. You wouldn't believe how many of your co-workers will note your progress, and do something as well. Wouldn't you be happy to help others on your journey? I am, and they help me too.
Experience is a road to all things gained and a road to all things we don't want to gain. And we all know what that is.
Oh yeah, I used to sit and eat almost a whole chocolate cake. How dumb was I? I think I counted it as a reward for losing 5 lbs. I gained it all back, plus some.
You can't turn a Boston Bull into a whippet.
Don't be afraid to walk on the moon.
Life is just a chair of bowlies
My nutrition tracker is like GOLD to me.
Our reward is not food, but achievement. Many of us make the mistake of rewarding ourselves with food, isn't that what got us here in the first place?
SUGAR IS EVIL, DON'T USE IT!! IN ANYTHING!!
