Man, it is not easy.
Resisting all the foods that cause us to gain weight.
Now, I do not have a big problem with the fats - too much of them will cause my gallbladder and stomach to act up so staying away from them is a given if I want to feel good.
But those carbs - they are hard to resist.
And it isn't the "good" carbs - it's the grains that I love.
Rice, wheat, oats, whole grain breads - they all turn to sugar then fat in my system.
And it is not that these foods are bad for us - we need them in our diets.
I have even been able to watch my sugar intake which is a giant step for me.
But those grains keep calling.
So, I will allow a bite once in a while, and a serving every now and then.
But it isn't easy.
"Just keep the weight loss goal" in mind is what I tell myself.
I know it will be worth it in the end.
But it isn't easy :(
