BooBooKitty's own journey


 Summary:

I cut out cold turkey the following items....and still to this day do not eat them....and eat the following instead:

All sodas, even diet
caffine...no coffee or anything
sugar in general
No sweets or junk food
No chips, crackers, etc
No pastas, not even wheat pasta
No fried foods
No Pork
No meats with a breaded crust (like shake and bake)
No fast food unless it is a salad
only Fat Free Dressings
No sweet tea
No crystal light, even though it is sugar free...the sweet taste makes me crave more sweet things
Nothing that tasted sweet that would be me the urge to crave more sweets
No salt
I look for things that are little to no sodium
I do eat whole grain wheat bread on occasion
I eat plain cream of wheat with nothing in it...
I eat lots of salads....I am learning to like veggies that I used to not eat...
For dressing I use the balsamic vinigerrette or a rasberry vinergarette, both fat free
no mayonnaise, sour cream, stuff like that...
very little cheese
I do eat chicken and turkey, but only baked or boiled or grilled
Fishes are good (flounder, tuna) but eat them plain...no butter or mayonnaise for tuna fish....
No taters (doesn't matter what kind, mashed, baked, fried, none)
Very little corn
I eat cantaloupe, bananas, apples, and an orange now and again....but watch out....fruits have a bunch of sugar....grapes have the most.
There are soy made juices that are great!
No canned food...to much sodium and other crap in them.
I eat a lot of frozen veggies....or fresh veggies and I boil them in nothing but water...I will add pepper sometimes or garlic, but that is it.
I measure my portions of food when eating anything but salads...
I drink pretty much only water all day...I will drink unsweet decaf. tea on occasion with no sweetener in it.

Here is my Exercise Program:
I try to go to the gym daily. Do a 2:1 ratio of cardio vs. weights. I keep it rotated. Do cardio then weights then cardio then weights...and so on...gives you a more intense workout.

I also will meditate if I feel like my mind is very clustered or busy. It really helps me find my center. Meditation is WONDERFUL.

 How To Follow BooBooKitty's own journey:

If I feel the urge to eat, binge, or have cravings....I get a big glass of ice water and drink as fast as I can. I will do things...like crafts, play online, scrap book, read....anything that will take my mind off of the hunger pains or cravings. A lot of it is being very disciplined and controlling what you put into your mouth. Be very aware of your body.

To be honest....when there is something that I am just dying to have I put up my imaginary scales....on one side is the thing I think I need and on the other is my life. When I put those two things on the scale...I always choose my life...But it is a choice that only you can make...you have to decide if your life is worth it.

I was at a point where I felt like I was one bag of chips, one meal, one bite away from a heart attack or going to sleep and never waking up. There were nights when I would go on a huge binge kick and eat a bunch of stuff and when I went to sleep I remember thinking that it was okay if I didn't wake up. I would tell God that if he wanted to take me...he could. I never wanted to harm myself, but what I had to realize was that I was harming myself...one bite at a time I was slowly killing myself. I was morbidly obese and no one could fix it but me. So I decided that when I got to that point...I had to choose ME and MY LIFE.

So now, I choose LIFE...MY LIFE!!! There is no sweet, soda, junk food, or anything else for that matter that is worth my life!!!

I hope this helps. It is not for everyone. This is not a DIET!!! Diet is a 4 letter word. This is a life change!!!! A change that will impact the rest of your life.
