Living The Just Peachy Life
I love to eat. Chocolate and Pasta don't make a diet!
Post 1: My Optifast journey
My neighbor runs. A lot. I don't. Ever. As in, if you see me running, bring the code cart, cause I'm either running to one, or I will be the code. As in, if you see me running, you better run too, cause something is after me, kind of never. I saw a shirt that said "Exercize? I thought you said EXTRA FRIES!" That is MY KIND of shirt!
I'm fluffy, chunky, soft, and got a little extra to hold on to, if you get my drift. I've lost weight and found it so many times Mattel is going to name a Yo-Yo after me.
It's truly a love hate relationship with food. On one side there is a vivid, steamy love affair. I crave the luxurious taste, the living breathing textures, and the full feeling after consuming the delicious morsels. On the other side, there is a fiery spiteful good for no one relationship. We bring out the worst in each other. Food brings out my inability trust myself, my inability to limit myself, my inability to control a situation. I bring out food's ability to make me fat, diabetic, hypertensive, and have high cholesterol. It's a high risk, toxic relationship, and we need a divorce.
So, I am pretty lucky, I work for a hospital that has weight management program. Lots of my coworkers are having success with it. So I figured why not. It's a pretty comprehensive program. They use Optifast products, with doctors, dietitians, behavioral therapists, and fitness experts. There are weekly check-ins. One of my goals in the program is to journal. So I though perhaps writing my journey down here would be good. Plus, if I actually do decide to share it, maybe it will help some one.
My plan is to share my journey, my hard days when I fail. my good days when I am successful, and maybe then start a healthy recipe section when I start adding real food back in! It will be a complete lifestyle change for me and you are getting in on the beginning! Start the journey with me! I will share my problems and my personal struggles.
I am pretty much a sucker for JJ Watt and the Houston Texans. This North Carolina girl loves her Texans. Plus, JJ has some pretty inspiring quotes. So I may have to throw a couple of them out there every now and then!
Full disclosure, I am an amazon affiliate, links could lead links on for my affiliate site. Blogging takes time and effort and if I could make a little change, it helps! Thanks for helping!
