Food

Our Sunday Scribblings prompt is "Food"

It came at a most trying time.
Every night as I go to bed, I'm thinking about what I'll eat for breakfast.
At school, during my fifth hour break, as I walk laps and climb stairs, I'm thinking about what I'll eat for supper. Yes, you guessed it. I'm counting calories and trying to avoid food like it's poison.

It's all because of that lightly tossed off resolution at the beginning of the year--ten pounds--hah!
Well, that ten pounds was easy; fell off in three weeks, but it's taken me a month to lose the next pound, and if I dare forget myself and forget to count calories, wobble wobble goes the needle on the scale, edging back up. It's pathetic. I'm so mad at food, I could eat a whole pizza by myself--pan pizza--supreme--with extra cheese!

Ahhh yes, the need for food to be ever present in our thoughts and actions. It's a love-hate relationship for sure and you've described that so well here. I share your struggles and your desire for the pizza! :-)

I agree. This fight is difficult.

I used to have weight problems, then I decided to break my meals up into 5 a day. Eat a little a lot. It works perfectly.

Congratulations on the 10 pounds, don't give in, not if you are really serious. I can't diet myself - I like red meat, strong cheese, full cream milk etc. too much.

Go for it (the pizza) then go for a walk. Nice write!

Ten pounds sounds good. Why not just try a maintenance diet and then tackle it again hard in a few weeks or months time?

Deborah said...

Oooh don't deprive yourself or you 'will' be mad at food, you've lost the weight you wanted to so have a pizza and maybe do what oldegg says, it sounds a good idea :o)
