A fat girl’s quest to freedom

Finished strong…somewhat

Ok…I had my first large hurdle today. So I decided to watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in preparation for the new movie coming out. So there I am sitting in front of the TV with a huge bowl of Movie theater buttered popcorn. I popped a handful of popcorn in my mouth and…freeze! I realize as the flavor of the popcorn hits my tongue that A) I’m not supposed to be eating this and B) it should have been thrown out with the rest of the junk food. So I spit it all out, no chewing(sorry, I know…gross) and I throw it all in the garbage along with the remaining bags. But I’m perplexed….I went through the entire process of making the popcorn, setting up my drink (Crystal Light) and watched like five minutes of the movie before I got a clue! Hmmmm….well what lessons have I learned today: 1) I need to go and buy healthy snacks for movie nights so I don’t make the same mistake; 2) I need to really think about what I’m eating when it’s snack time. Thankfully I caught my mistake before I actually ate that handful and I had a fruit salad instead.  Today was my first big hurdle and I feel like I made it over…with a slight stumble. My next hurdle I plan to sail over. Goodnight  ;-)

  1. I finally decided to write a comment on your blog. I just wanted to say good job. I really enjoy reading your posts.

  2. Thanks Rick! I figure that if I blog my way to a healthier me, I’ll identify and correct the issues that got me to this point.

  3. First of all, I love that movie and am so excited to see the latest in the series.

    And secondly, nice work with the popcorn. I have “gone vegetarian” countless times only to “accidentally” order a turkey / chicken / tri-tip sandwich and realize two or three bites in that I’d blown it. I think its actually pretty funny. Good for you for catching it and changing the cycle!

  4. Spitting out the popcorn shows so much strength and determination. To even stop after 1 handful would have been huge but to spit it out!!! Awesome.
