Stupid, Stupid, Stupid. That’s what I keep telling myself. I have really change my eating habits over the last few months. I’ve read labels, buying fresh fruit and veggies every week and making out weekly menus so that we never have to guess what to make for dinner. It has been WONDERFUL. I eat 6 times a day. I am never hungry, I have plenty of energy and I never have that full bloated feeling of eating too much. Even the kids and husband have gotten use to eating the whole wheat bread and pasta! We are all eating better and it shows! Tonight we had Violin practice, then straight to Basketball practice. After Basketball we splurged and stopped at McDonalds. I told myself walking in, that I would have a fresh salad, fruit, and unsweetened tea. I kept saying it to myself over and over in my head as if I would forget. But when I got to the counter, my brain didn’t connect with my mouth. My mouth said, two cheese burgers with Big Mac Sauce and a Dr. Pepper, PLEASE. Then I got excited that my mouth won over my brain! YES!! I enjoyed every bite. It was amazing! Then, I felt guilty. And now, two hours after I ate it I feel sooooo stupid, because my stomach is literally churning over and over as if my food is looking for a way out. I FEEL TERRIBLE! What was I thinking!? I now see that my body does not want McDonalds. I can’t even eat it every once in a while because it now makes me sick. I need a FFA group (Fast Food Anonymous). I need to be able to call them when I’m in the Drive thru lane. . .
