No More Holiday Foods
I am happy 2016 is over. I hate the holidays when it comes to food, and it’s not the food I hate. Knowing that everything I’m eating is nowhere near suitable for me is the issue. I tried to stay out of the high carbohydrate dimension, but it proved to be overwhelming.
Yesterday, New Year’s Eve, I didn’t do so badly, and I was mainly on the low-carb side. Today I am all over it. I have bought my groceries for the month, and I am set to follow my low-carb, high-fat diet very closely. This morning I had scrambled eggs with spinach and an uncured sausage by Oscar Myer. It is a good start.
No more holidays are coming up (at least not any that I plan to observe) that will derail me. On March 1, had I been able to stay on track, it would have been a year on the low-carb, high-fat diet or ketogenic. I lost nearly 40 pounds with almost no effort and have gained about 10 since Thanksgiving. Perhaps, if I had not gotten sidetracked, I could have reached my goal weight or gotten pretty damned close. It was nearly 100 pounds that I set out to lose last March.
Now that the holidays are over, with all the high carbs and sugars that go with them, I am set to get back on track. This is not a New Year’s resolution. I set out to do this around my birthday last year in March. I am just continuing what I started. I will reach my goal. I will succeed no matter how long it takes. I will acquire the discipline needed to reach my goal and stay healthy.
I wish you all great success in your endeavors this year. No one and nothing can stop you, except you. So let’s rock our perspective worlds and seriously kick some ass!
I still didn’t quite escape holiday foods yesterday. In visiting friends and neighbors I still encountered holiday treats & sweets. However, I am on track today.
