I am on a diet.
I need to be on a diet because I’m on medication that causes weight gain.
My weight wouldn’t be a problem if only I’d exercise more.
But I’m basically a lazy woman who hates to sweat.
I also hate it when I’m out of breath.
And my heart rate soars to 180+ when I work out WHICH I CAN’T SUSTAIN.
I blame my mother for my food issues.
She told me that as an infant she had to stuff the bottle in my face right after she shoveled food in it or I’d scream.
I can totally see this behavior in me as an adult – shoveling in food followed by a big swig of booze.
Not a good habit to develop.
Needless to say, I’ve given up drinking as much as I used to in the past.
And for this my liver THANKS ME!
It’s been two days and I’ve lost 4 pounds.
Which isn’t THAT big a deal because basically I can SNEEZE and lose 4 pounds.
But it’s progress in the right direction.
So wish me luck and cross your fingers hoping I’ll be successful on this liquid milkshake diet I’m on.
Lord knows how much I’m craving to CHEW SOMETHING!
P.S. I totally cheated last night when I licked a serving spoon full of peanut butter clean. . .
