Food is for fuel, not for fun–Day 1

Weight as of this morning–191.6 (which is down 3 lbs from when I weighed in Friday morning)

I’m going to kick off this week of trying to overhaul my diet with fasting until dinner time. Dinner is going to be baked lemon-pepper chicken (which I absolutely love) and brown rice.

One of the diet books I read recently said that in order to kick a craving for a specific food, you have to avoid it entirely for at least 72 hours. My plan, at least at present, is to not have any gluten whatsoever until Friday  night when I have pizza for dinner. I don’t know if it’s going to change my relationship with bread and pasta, but I’ve got my fingers crossed that it will.

I’m also planning on starting off every day with intermittent fasting, where I don’t eat from around 8pm the night before until I sit down to lunch at work (around 11:30) the next day. I’m only going to allow myself coffee, tea or water in the mornings as well–no juices or milk (which I’m supposed to avoid anyway due to my being lactose intolerant).

I’ve got to get a handle on this. Most of my life I’ve been letting food be in control of me instead of the other way around. I’m desperate..more so than I felt back in January when I started this journey of weightloss. I didn’t want to change my relationship to food back then, though. I just wanted to change my weight.

Well, it’s becoming rapidly apparent that in order to shed the weight that’s been plaguing me I need to change my relationship to food and make it fucking stick this time. I am terrible at making it stick. I’m trying to be positive even as my brain is like ‘What makes you think this time will be any different?”
