SO. I was looking in the freezer for hamburgers yesterday for dinner today. There beneath the burgers was a big piece of fudge that I had purchased in Alaska. It somehow found its way into my mouth. Why am I so weak??? When I'm alone I'm not so strong. Oh well. Just had a BLT sandwich with sourdough bread that was in the freezer, too. I promise myself to get back at it tomorrow. My punishment will definitely be KETO flu after two days of cheating. (Yes. That Velveeta Mac and Cheese will be made tonight. Only a small portion tho. Hubby can have the rest). Oh well. Back at it. Maybe this will jump start my system to lose more weight. I've been at a standstill for over a week now.

    Life is a continuous set of lessons! You are learning. Get back in there and realize it's just a lesson, not having to start all over again.

    Okay, this sounds gross, but I learned that I can eat anything I want,but I don't have to SWALLOW it. Like that piece of fudge, in truth you just wanted the TASTE, and you could have eaten it and when you were ready to swallow, SPIT IT OUT in the trash. I've done it many times standing in front of the mirror in the bathroom and taking a bite and chewing and when ready to swallow, i spit it out. When I'm done, I clean the sink, rinse my mouth and brush my teeth. Then I don't have that voice "Harriet" in my head telling me what a worthless loser I am and I don't have that awful feeling that all that sugar gives me later.

    So, you can EAT what you want, but you know you don't NEED it in your body. I always think about people who throw up and think WHY, did they swallow? They really only get about half of it back up. I never ever did that one. Just spit it out.
    Anyway that is my answer. Last year I found an endocrinologist who put me on Metformin even though another doctor told me my blood sugar was only 115 and diabetes starts at 126. This doctor showed me the insert which said "If you might become a T2 diabetic you can start now. He said "You are close enough." This morning my Blood sugar was 100, and last night I didn't do any night eating. I've kept off the 36# I lost last year. So think about getting help from a doctor who understands metabolism. The other doctor told me "You can't expect to lose weight now at YOUR AGE, since you have Metabolic Syndrome." So I found a doctor who believes in Anti-aging. He's 74 and understands obesity.

    One other thing. I don't like diet soda, but I go to the mini-mart and get a large drink, and fill it with half diet, and then 1/2 Cherry Coke, which is stronger flavor than regular and so I don't taste the Diet part, but it is only 200 calories done that way rather than 400 of regular coke. Yes, I know I shouldn't drink coke at all, but in the hot summer I do like Coke. So, I do the same thing with my quart drink of water as I don't like plain water but buy Zephyrhills Spring water and I add 1/4 cup O.J. and make Juice water. So I always get in my water for the day. I don't like coffee either, but when it is cold I make a quart of "coffee milk" with one cup of instant Sanka using a tsp of coffee, and one cup skim milk and 2 cups water, and for 80 calories I have a quart drink that is hot. So that is ways I get in my water for the day.
