Feeling The Blues
I love everything about food—eating it, preparing it, writing about it and creating it! Period!
I bet I’m not the only one.
While this hobby can get expensive, it also can be a challenge to your health. People like me, who are prone to gaining weight easily, should be watching everything that goes in their mouths. Like I often say, I can gain weight just by seeing food—I really don’t need to eat it.
It’s now been five days since I started my diet—and I’m miserable. While following a specified diet makes it a bit easier, I still miss my food.
The loss of a few pounds in five days has not encouraged me as we all know that the first few pounds are nothing but water weight. It will be a long time before the first pound of real fat will melt.
Patience is the key—sadly, it’s not really my strongest characteristic.
Many people say that weighing yourself daily does not have a good effect as weight often fluctuates—many variables, not necessarily fat, influence weight. Aside from the theory, my scale calls my name every morning. At times, when the hand doesn’t go in the right direction, it will yell at me. The scale for me is a tool to remind me that dieting is not an overnight sensation—it is more of a long process that will eventually turn into a lifestyle.
