Over the holidays (and beyond) as I have added in more refined grains and oils and sugar, I have gained five pounds. And the more I eat such things, the more I want to eat such things. It’s amazing how easy it is to get off the right track. I really don’t want to weigh more because I feel so much better at a lighter weight. After losing 30 pounds and keeping it off for three years, I don’t want to go back to where I was. I also don’t want to lose the ground I’ve gained as far as blood pressure goes. I like being on NO medication! I really give healthy eating the most credit for the weight loss and healthy blood pressure. And since diabetes seems to be a risk factor given my family history, I also wish to avoid falling into that.
All of which is why, starting right this minute, I’m back to basics and I bet it won’t be as difficult as I imagine. Usually it’s making the hard and fast decision that does the trick. At least that is what I believe. Let’s see if it unfolds the way I think it will.
