Okay the New year started with a challenge for me. My Laptop and other computer crashed! I was lost not having my email or being online. But I finally got it fixed yesterday!!! I am so so happy! So Sorry for not posting on my page or in any of the forums! I feel so behind!

I have been doing a poor job of staying away from fast food. I found out that my mom is a trigger for me to eat out. I Really need to make sure I have good food choices when I am around her because she love to pick up fast food and go to restaurants.

I also have really acid reflux now. I am finding my stomach is sour a lot and I have tried everything to help it but it doesn't work for very long. I have tried tea, tums, Rolaids, med from doctor, orange essential oil, peppermint oil. There is so much i can't eat because it gives me heartburn, or makes me throw up, or won't digest or gives me colon pain. I am getting really frustrated. Then when I am I get so hungry I eat poorly.

What really stinks is raw food is not digesting and hurts my stomach plus alot of veggies give me pain. Which are the good foods that help you lose weight!

I am just so fustrated!

    Good for you for realizing your mom is a food trigger for you. Maybe you can help encourage her to make healthier food choices as well by planning and cooking meals together! It's a constant battle, but I know you can do it!

    I've been doing this for awhile, so let me show you what I do. This weekend I threw a bunch of veggies in a bowl so I'd have salad for the week (I know you said you had trouble with veggies, but telling my story). Also got some recipes out--mostly from Sparks--& made 2 main course meals that I can have for several weeks, with some of it frozen. Was in class all day & just got home, but last night I cut up a bunch of veggies & now have a pot of carrot soup cooking. While on campus, I had taken my lunch & 2 snacks, so sat down in cafeteria & ate. It's all about planning, but first you have to think you're worth it--worth the time it takes to sit down & write out a bunch of meals you might eat, what groceries you'd need, go shopping, cook........You CAN go out; but for me, first of all, I enjoy cooking (hence, the culinary course I'm in); but secondly, it's SO much easier to eat at home & have healthy choices.
    Best of luck to you.

    That IS frustrating. Try to stay strong! There are a lot of "better" food choices at MANY restaurants, you can look up a lot of them.

    And remember to stay positive! A positive attitude can be the difference between success and failure!
