Supersize Me

Monday, June 13, 2011

I have always wanted to watch Supersize Me, but haven't until challenged by my Wildflower team. It was one of those things that as I watched, I kept thinking, you know fast food is bad, so why are you so surprised? I guess that I had downplayed the amount of damage that it could do because I like the fast part of it and frankly, it tastes good to me now. I have also downplayed countless other bad choices in my life and it has landed me in the spot that I am now - overweight and unhappy. Time to make a change.

Another thing that really struck me, was how bad it is for my children. I immediately felt guilty (one of the things that I need to work on) and started craving unhealthy food - CRAZY right? I said a quick prayer, let it go though, and set a goal to not eat fast food very often anymore (1 or 2 times per month).

So here I am, with my goal, and some new knowledge gained.

    emoticon emoticon i am finding it more difficult than I thought to not do McD as too often the lifestyle made it so much easier to grab and go than to shop, cook, & clean up. I definately need to work on some things that I can have ready ahead of time for those "on the go" days. I really understand how difficult it is with children and all the things that every one can get involved in. We can do it! emoticon
