My name is Angela, and I like to eat
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Evening all! In my quest to muddle through my crazy feelings about food, I had another thought tonight.
I could be 120 pounds. Heck, I could probably even get to 115 pounds. But I like to eat. A lot. I like things with sugar and fat, even though I'm currently trying to avoid them. I like to eat more than three bites, like many diet magazines will tell you to do with your favorite foods. Screw three bites, I want the whole slice of cheesecake! So, maybe what I need to do is decide what I want more -- the smaller number on the scale and in my pants or a higher weight and the foods I love.
I wish it were that simple, but it's not. The weight is creeping up ever so slowly. If I could be 128-130 and maintain, I would be okay, but I'm not there and I don't know how to force myself to get there. Ugh. Portion control is my total weakness.
