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.

If you're needing inspiration, this is quite possibly my most favorite article of all time: http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING

    I was thinking the same thing the other day. I was indulging in not one but two big slices of pizza, and I thought: "If I could weigh 120lbs but I had to never eat pizza again...I think I'd choose pizza (and continue to weigh 130lbs)." Man, I love pizza. Ha!

    Like you, I could weigh less, and I have in the past... But back then, I ate a lot less of what I wanted, and I spent much more time working out. I, too, need to decide which is more important: the food or the scale... I'm still working on figuring that out. You're not alone!

    BTW, I LOVE that article! Thank you for linking to it. I probably ought to read that every day.
