Why Wait?

1/21/13 – 133.2 (up .4)
I wrote yesterday in a team discussion that I was going to get back to my ETL plan. I have been dealing with periodontal and other dental issues since the middle of December and I hope after Tuesday, that I will be released by my doctors to go back to eating what I want. I haven't done badly, but I have gained a few pounds and I would like to drop those and get over the cravings I have had from the holiday sweets and bread treats. I had picked Wednesday (after the dental appointment to begin) and decided to treat myself (wrong) with a good last meal. So last night for dinner, I had fish (tarter sauce) and baked French fries (ketchup) (meat, starch, and sodium).

I woke this morning, not only feeling swollen and stiff, but weighing more! So, why wait? I am starting now. I will get back to a stricter ETL and get as much water and moving around in as possible today. Here’s hoping I will feel better tomorrow.

B – Benefiber, fruit (banana, strawberries, blueberries), coffee

    Funny how food treats often aren't really treats!

    I'm trying to tighten my reins on the diet too. Got too far off plan and it's hard to get back.
