My relationship with food

I was watching the movie "Limitless" today and there was a scene where the guy had just purchased a huge bacon egg and cheese bagel before he walks in and sees his friend shot in the chest.  He immediately drops all the bags in his hands and my first thougt was :

He should DEFINITELY pick up that bagel and get to eating!!!

Sick right?  Right now I am exactly .5 lbs of the way to my first major weight loss goal ! Can you believe it?  After all this time!  Finally about to hit the goal...but all I can think about is food.  I go on Pinterest and look up all the foods I cant wait to eat when I get off this diet. I think about the kind of foods that I want to cook, throwing dinner parties, and eating out whenever I want.  Is this pathetic?  I don't think so.

Eating is a wonderful thing!!  I have noticed that the things I crave have changed drastically.  I no longer just want the burger and fries, or the big ass bag of potato chips, but I have started to crave more healthy yet savory foods.

Im craving things like baked Zucchini and eggplant Lasagne.  Like chicken teriyaki and BLT's with slow roasted tomatoes.  YUM!

So I am glad to say that while I am still completely in love with food, and I want to eat it all the time lol, I also notice that my eating habits and desires have changed for the better.  YAY FOR PROGRESS!!!

(I still want that damn bagel though)



  1. To be honest I probably would have thought the same thing if the man was holding a doughnut. Since I am about to start a program I know I am probably going to be wanting food a lot. I honestly don't have a desire to eat hamburgers or fries, my cravins have been cake. I have been wanting a funfetti cake with the funfetti icing for about a month now and i still haven't gotten it.

  2. Make sure you REALLY go all out on the binge days. If you don't you will be miserable for the next 6 weeks. When do you start?

  3. I haven't gotten my stuff but Mon, I am going to start with just 700 calories like I was before when I was on that protein diet and then once I get everything in the mail move it down to the 500 calorie. I told my husband that I needed an all out day with Spaghetti, garlic bread, and my funfetti cupcakes before I start. I am suposed to have my all out day Sun. But I don't want to go too hard because I have step aerobics class Mon morning at 6:00, I'm not trying to throw up!

    How miserable am I going to be actually? I know how I was when I was on that protein diet, is it going to be real bad.
