This is how I am trying to look at it, as something positive, something that is finally going to get me off my duff and start losing weight.
I look at food that way sometimes as well, it is really worth it...like all the Xmas goodies, this is killing me in the long run. The old saying, a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips is so true. It just isn't worth it. I don't even think that it is filling some kind of emotional void, I can't even use that as an excuse, it is just mindless eating and eating from boredom. So I'm planning on cutting out practically everything with white sugar and flour and I'm not sure about dairy, from the research I've done about fatty liver it is a good idea to cut that out as well, probably I will still drink low fat milk for the calcium but I will completely cut out butter and cheese
. I need to increase my fiber a lot with raw veggies and fruit. I know it sound drastic but really I've eaten this way before and I will lose weight. The problem is that I have a hard time sticking to it more than a couple of weeks. It is a drastic change from the way I eat now. When I've tried to do it one step at a time it doesn't work, I am almost better at doing it cold turkey and I just have to force myself to stick to it. It is becoming a matter of life and death. It's not an immediate thing but it is shortening my life and I don't want that, it has just become really clear with this liver thing. So I'm having my last hurrah over the next few days and then it is getting serious time!
