Why can't I take a trip and diet at the same time??!!
Friday, March 12, 2010
I love to go places. Even if it's just for a couple of days and close to home. There's just something wonderful about changing the scenery I see almost everyday. Throw in a couple of good friends and life is truly blessed and good.
There is only one thing I hate about travel. Dieting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know it's my own fault. I'm an adult and as such I should be able to say no thank you to any food that's not good for me anywhere. So why is it that if I'm not at home I eat like I need to gain a few pounds?? The good side of me tells me to have a nice grilled chicken breast with rice and glass of water. The evil side of me kicks the good side in the head and tells me what I really want is that bbq bacon burger with loaded cheese fries and a soda. Bad evil side!!!!!! Bad!!!!
It's becoming much easier to eat right when I'm home. My choices get better and better all the time and I'm proud of myself for that. But when I'm away I still want to eat like everyone else does and I just can't do that. I have to realize that I'll always be different because I have a problem. I'm addicted to food. They are not. Just like the recovering alcoholic it's hard to hang around with my friends that are notorious big eaters, but I'm not giving up my friends. I have to defeat this monster that lives in me and is trying to kill me one double cheeseburger at a time. I so long for the day when I eat live, not live to eat. That's the day I'll truly be free.
