Enough feeling sorry for myself

Sunday, June 05, 2016

I've had a rough time with pain this past week, all brought on by eating poorly. To much sugar always adds up to increased pain and fatigue.

Today is the first day being recommitted to eating properly. As I've said before, I like the way I feel on the Eat to Live plan but I was struggling with too many temptations. That's kind of a cop out. No one is making me make poor choices but myself.

It went well today. I picked good options all day.

I have one issue with the Eat to Live plan and that is the amount of fruit you are supposed to eat each day. I enjoy it but I think my body is reacting to it in a negative way. With Fibro some people struggle with yeast overgrowth and I'm one of them.

It's also interesting that now when I'm recommitting to eating right our church has extended a challenge to those with food issues to pick a plan and commit to it. They are including an informational insert each week to help us understand how certain things affect our weight loss efforts. Today, the guy that wrote this weeks insert did a demonstration. He held up a standard can of ginger ale and then proceeded to put 9 grams of sugar into a glass followed by 30 mg of salt, some baking soda and "caramel coloring", topped it off with carbonated water. He pointed out that you were subjecting yourself to that or worse when you drink soda, no matter what the type of sweetener is in it.

So each week I'll getting a reminder about staying on track.
