I am not a dustbin!

 

     I’m always saying that I need to lose weight but I’ve been so erratic about it: today, I’m working out. Tomorrow, I’m not. I tried losing weight by exercising only without changing my diet but I didn’t notice any major changes. The reason why I didn’t want to diet was because I wanted to make a complete lifestyle change. It’s taken me a while to get motivated but I finally came up with a few resolutions 2 days ago. Every food that crosses my lips must meet the criteria.

  1. I am not a dustbin. As a wife and mom, I never want any food to waste. I always find myself eating leftovers so that I don’t have to discard them. This has got to stop. Any moms out there like this?
  2. I am not a taster. I have a habit of tasting stuff that my hubby and kids are eating. This has also got to stop.
  3. My body is a temple of God: I will stay away from foods that are damaging to the body e.g deep fat fried foods, fizzy drinks, white bread,etc
  4. I will eat most of my foods from complex carbohydrates and proteins.
  5. I will eat foods with a low fat content and limit my intake of refined carbohydrates.

     Anyways, I went to a bookshop yesterday and I saw this book: 17 Day Diet: A Doctor’s Plan Designed for Rapid Results. When I skimmed through, I felt that it was in line with my new eating resolution so I bought it. I’ll write more about the book soon. Do take care.

    I totally agree with your resolutions. I am also on the weight loss train and it has been a very slow journey because of some of the reasons you highlighted. I eat a lot of leftovers and have the silly habit of having the first spoon of my children’s food. I decided to reduce their portions and whatever they eat that is left over I will put in a plate as my own meal instead of eating that and still eating my own food.

    Good luck.

      It`s not a silly habit that you taste your children`s food. It`s not a bad thing what you`re doing by eating their leftovers but not eating another meal afterwards. Good luck to you too Evee. 🙂

    Unfortunately, I have no comment this time. I’ve been blessed with a slim frame even after three children. Wishing you all the best.
