My First Ever Blog Post

Thursday, July 28, 2011

I have been encouraged and inspired reading other team member blogs, so I thought I should maybe put down a few thoughts of my own.

Today is C2D9 (Carbs)!!!! I am loving C2 so far, I havent seen the scale move yet, but I love the alternating of days. I had tremendous success in C1 (15 lbs) so I am hoping that my body is just playing catch up.

I went to a baseball game last night and didnt cheat at all. The only time I had a small inkling of cheating was when the vendor came by with popcorn. It really smelled heavenly. I'm sure it was loaded with salt and butter, afterall, how else do you eat it? I dont think this is a food I will be able to eat even when its allowed, because I cant stop once I start. Same with sugary candy ( jellybeans, bullseyes)! These are triggers for me!!!

    Hey, good for you for passing on the popcorn! I went to a movie yesterday and everybody around me had buckets of heavenly movie popcorn. I resisted, but I'd be lying if I were to say it didn't take a bit of visualizing my skinny self to keep my self-control! LOL

    Ooooh popcorn! I know that I may be almost 60, but I'm a Harry Potter fan and I want to see the last one for my birthday in August. I've been thinking about avoiding it, because of the temptation of movie theatre popcorn. That's not a way to live however - enjoy a life that doesn't revolve around food!!

    Ok I'm done ranting. What's really satisfying is the natural low fat microwave popcorn (or better yet airpopped) with FF american cheese melted on top. I put it on a plate after it's popped and put the cheese on top and back in the microwave for a few seconds to melt the cheese. It will satisfy your cravings. Did you know that it's the salt and butter that stimulate hunger? Yup - salt, fat and sugar (and articficial sweeteners), are the main culprits. Read "The End Of Overeating" by David Kessler and you'll really get ticked off about the food industry. emoticon emoticon

    P.S.Good 1st blog - keep them coming!

    Far out! Terrific success, I can see nothing but tremendous results for you with a great attitude like yours. I hear you with the food triggers, I stay completely away from mine. Keep us posted on your journey, it's more fun with lots of friends along the way emoticon

    It's good to know your triggers so you can control them rather than have them control you. I am the same with movie theatre popcorn. I used to 'need' it when i went to a I drool a bit internally, and then move on with watching the movie without popcorn. It's still pretty good!
