I'm happy that it's Wednesday...
Haven't weighed yet this morning - not an official weight, anyways. I weigh first thing every day but it's not what I consider a "true" weight because I do it in my sleeping clothes.
Not pajamas. I don't wear pajamas... or nightgowns. I guess that's weird.
Audience participation time: what do you sleep in?
Usually for me it's tshirts and shorts or tshirts and sweat pants or sleep pants.
I don't even own a real nightgown.
And this is not what I intended to blog about today.
It's whiny Wednesday... which means it's time for me to complain...
Here's what's on my nerves today: people who lose weight eating completely unhealthy diets. It's not that I'm jealous... quite the opposite. I feel bad for them. I know what it's like to work SOOOO hard to lose weight and then end up gaining every ounce back.
There's this blog that I follow where a lady has lost a considerable amount of weight. She lists her food every day and every day she eats 1-2 servings of ice cream, she eats candy, chocolate... and crazy amounts of carbs.
The older, wiser me wants to post comments that say, "enjoy being thin because it won't last". I won't. I'm not confrontational like that.
It's the southern way, you know... "I'd never say anything bad TO HER FACE!" *groan*
But just between me and all hundred of you... she hasn't changed the bad health habits that made her fat in the first place. There's no way she can maintain her current success.
Can I just say it again? SUGAR IS BAD. It's reasonable to have a treat once a week. It's ridiculous to depend on 2-3 sweet treats a day. That's not a treat - that's an addiction.
Cutting sugar out of your diet makes everything taste better. Fruit is sweeter. I can drink coffee and tea without needing added sugar and it doesn't taste bitter. I'm free.
If God had intended for us to need sugar in everything we eat, he would make it rain sugar instead of water.
Ok, I know that's ridiculous but it seriously gets on my nerves how addicted we are - as a society - to sugar. And it gets in my nerves how much sugar is in everything we eat from salad dressings (see yesterday's post) to bread to cereal. It's like manufacturer's don't trust their products enough on their own and have to pump them full of sugar to make us want to buy them.
It aggravates the stew out of me that I let myself gain back all my weight but I can tell you this... lesson learned. I'm not going to put myself in the position of having to do this again.
Yesterday was a series of frustrations at work... two of the life applications I submitted this month were withdrawn - people changed their minds. It seems like I just can't get a life sale completed.
When I left work it was POURING rain and I had to run the office errands - bank and post office - both involve me getting out of my car - so by the time I was on my way home I was drenched. It was like i took a shower with my clothes on. SOOOOo frustrating!
By the time I got home I had a massive headache and I was in bed before 8pm.
SOOOOOooo... although this is officially Whiny Wednesday, I believe that today has to be a better day than yesterday.
Gonna grab some breakfast, log my WW points for the day and get ready for work.
Happy day, y'all.
