So you tell just how horrible you're doing, and you get a new follower! I had no clue it worked that way. Ha!
Thanks to those of you who responded with comments that let me know I'm not alone. I just feel so stupid and so foolish! It boggles my mind that I *know* what to do... but just choose not to do it! How can anyone be so smart and so stupid at the same time?
I spent some time at atkins.com last night looking at phase 1, induction. I always just thought Atkins was no this and that for the rest of your life. I had no clue it had 4 phases and that you really do get to add in breads and stuff as you go along. I'm not saying I'm doing the Atkins diet. But I am researching it some more. I also signed up for the free kit they offered. I definitely have a major problem with sugar (chocolate, sweets, pizza, breads, etc), and Atkins apparently makes you stop craving the sugars if you follow it correctly.
But then I go back to knowing that all I really need to do is focus on eating real foods (stuff God created) and ditching processed junk. Someone even mentioned this in the comments yesterday. Only problem is, God made food that had to be prepared instead of microwaved. LOL It's really NOT an excuse, but it seems like our life is a crazy kind of busy at this point. It's not a bunch of extra, unneeded stuff, either. It's just our normal lives with a little bit of hectic added it.
I also know it will be a mental battle with my kids and hubby to try to change our eating. My husband is always supportive, and my kids are young enough to still boss around (ha). It's just that none of them have weight problems and I feel like some crazy, overbearing, fat mom to stop fixing potatoes or pasta or other foods we are used to eating. And sure, I could still fix it for them and not me. But I know me well enough to know that I would be too tempted and cave if it's around.
It's really sad that when I think of giving up certain kinds of foods, my mind immediately throws a tantrum and clings onto things such as pizza and garlic bread! I really think I have a bigger problem with breads than I do sweets. Crazy!
Anyway... not sure how I missed the fact that some of you have blogs. I'll be trying to check them out! I guess I just purposefully don't allow myself to read too many blogs. I get very hooked on people's personal lives in form of blogs. LOL Then I sit here for way too long in the evenings reading all the blogs I follow. It messes me up! But if you follow my blog and have a blog, leave me the url in the comments if you don't mind it being public. I'd love to at least lurk or stop in occasionally!
Okay, 12:03 am. See what I mean? :) Night!
