I've come in search of support, and I'm not sure I can find it. I've been reading around the blogs. Anyone out there today? Thank you Deb, by the way. Here's my situation...
(Warning: There may be food word porn below. I warned you.)
The game tonight starts at 8 pm EST.
I'm nervous. When I'm nervous, I eat. Comfort food anyone?
And before you tell me to exercise, I did. And I want the food more now. Ugh.
Here's what I want:
Here's what I know from the last year that works to curb carb cravings:
Here's what Kimkins and South Beach propose for substituting carbs:
squash (shredded, looks like pasta, tastes like shit?)
zero calorie miracle noodles
low-carb protein shakes
Compared to what I want, I guess this just doesn't cut the palate. So again, it must come back down to changing what I want.
I must want to lose weight more than I want to comfort my nerves. I'm not sure I can win that battle tonight. What will I do if they make it to the World Series? Is it too late to get my jaw wired shut? Then I wouldn't be able to scream at the lousy tv announcers who are rooting for the other team! Last year was easier because it seemed so obvious we would win. I don't even have a single blog about it, as if it went into a vortex of neverhappenedland.
One game at a time; one meal at a time.
