What's your poison?

So, if you were about to begin a diet - what would be something you'd want to eat (restaurant or homemade) that you'd make sure you ate BEFORE you started a healthier eating program?

Pizza from the Macaroni Grill, a delicious white cupcake with cream cheese frosting and scallops. I couldn't pick one thing. Sorry.

The correct answer is anything and everything that I could get my hands on that I know would be out of bounds later.

Yumm! I need to get back in the dieting game...so this made my mouth water and had the wheels turning...Love Southwest Georgia Pound-cake, Moe's Nachos, anything mexican smothered in cheese, yummmm...!

I love the satisfaction of a clean house! Especially if I can keep it clean for more than an hour! Hooray for your accomplishment!

Also, I just wanted to thank you for your post on the scriptures in action. It touched my heart. Jill, you are such an inspiration to me. Thank you! I love the spirit I feel by simply reading your blog. Your love for the Gospel, our Heavenly Father and Christ shine through you. I love you and just wanted to thank you for the boost you give me, despite the miles.

Yummo!! So many things. I would have to agree with Lib and say the Southern Georgia Poundcake with homemade strawberry sauce and ice cream. Oh my goooodness! :)

Any kind of ice cream with Heath Bar in it is my fave... or maybe I could make it worse by visiting Culvers.

Mmmmmm....cheese fries, lots of cheese, desserts, etc....

I've gone back and forth about posting this, because I realize that your situation could be different: a similar question got me into a lot of trouble this semester. Back in January, I thought to myself "Ok, I will start a diet next week, so this week is it for all those yummy foods." I ate more than I ever had that week, and then kept putting off my diet until by the end of May I'd gained a good 15-20 pounds. YIKES, not what I intended at all!

Finally, last Tuesday I just stopped doing that and marched into a Weight Watcher's meeting. Much, much better. I'm now not only eating properly, but I'm also having to eat up to my points allowance, rather than actually cutting down what I eat. If I want to eat something that has higher points (like fries or dessert), I'll just budget my points differently during the day and eat a smaller serving of it.

I'm actually savoring food more than when I ate as much as I wanted, whenever I wanted because I'm eating less of that particular food and so I eat slowly to make it last.

I would recommend WW as an approach because they don't ban any type of food and they focus on the whole picture - not just weight loss, but eating right, exercise, and maintaining weight...though I must say I HATE the idea of WW as a corporation (charging just to go to meetings, plus extra for online tools, and a distinct lack of people my age in the groups). Still, worth a try!

P.S. Good luck in your endeavor - changing one's eating habits is a very hard thing to do and it is rarely fun. It's nice to know that other people out there are doing the same thing - it definitely provides support. I'm going to be doing Weight Watchers this summer in order to lose the 50 pounds I gained in high school/college, so let me know if you need someone to commiserate with/would like some recipe suggestions/have any questions.
