You ever notice, what you want the most sometimes you can't have? This is becoming evident the more and more I'm on this diet. Is it working? Yes it is. I am closing in on twenty pounds right now. It's funny the more weight I lose, it becomes more and more evident to me, the more weight I need to lose. How did I allow myself to get this way?
I could blame medication. For the past few years, I have been shot up with every type of hormone medication to try and have a baby. Not only didn't it work, but it left me with a residual thirty pounds on my already overweight body. I would like to blame all the weight on this but I really can't.
I could blame genetics. I take after my mother. She was extremely skinny until her thirties and then she started to gain weight. For my whole entire life, she has been overweight.
But the fact of the matter is, my husband and I love all the bad types of food. I love buffalo wings with blue cheese, french fries, burgers, pizza... I could go on and on. Every pay day, we would get take out from the pizza place up the street. I wouldn't get a salad, I would get something fried. All I can blame is me for the situation I am in.
So it took the possibility of being the fattest people in wedding photos to motivate us to lose weight. But do you realize how many fast food commercials there are on tv. Over the weekend, we counted. In the five commercials between show segments, there are three for food. There is a reason we are the fattest nation in the world and commercialism plays upon it. It's very easy to diet when I'm at work. There is nothing else for me do or eat but at home this weekend. I wanted every type of junk food available. It is crazy. I wanted what I couldn't have.
So KFC, leave me alone! I'm on the juice!!!!
