OK...if this is what I would have to eat all the time, I would have NO PROBLEM with weight loss. But, unfortunately, most of the food I eat looks much more appetizing than this.
I have never understood my failure at maintaining a healthy weight. Heck, I can't maintain it, because I never reach it. I don't remember one time in my life when I was happy with my weight (except for one). At that time, I got there easily, with my doctor's help and with medication...REDUX...later, found to cause health problems and pulled from the pharmacy! How dumb was that? I should have realized it was too good to be true... And after I got off that medication, the weight came back.
I'm a reasonably bright woman...educated, hard-working...but I can't seem to make this work! The temporary good feeling caused by a plate of comfort food seems to be more important to me than the good feeling that comes from knowing that you're taking care of yourself...and you look pretty good!
I'm not giving up...I need to regroup...hoping that warmer weather will entice me to get back to walking and exercising.
And NO, I didn't eat that little bird in the picture. I'm only posing for this picture! (I said I was reasonably bright, right???)
