I had never been on a diet, I had just heard about them, but never even thought about going on a diet. It always sounded like such a torture, and why? That was until the day I decided I needed to go on a diet.
It all started the day I decided to give up Diet Coke, earlier this summer. I thought that would make me loose the few pounds I had put on. However, I kept feeling like I was eating more. I was hungry all the time and I desperately ate my breakfast, lunch and dinner, and this was not normal for me. I have always been a very slow eater, usually the last person to finish the meal at the table, and it was very weird that I would eat a whole plate of food. I always stopped eating because I was full, not because there was no more food.
I quit Diet Coke to loose those few pounds, but I just gained a lot more. I got to the point whereI decided to go on a diet, yesterday. Yes, a diet, because quitting Diet Coke hadn’t been enough torture, adding a diet to that was going to be great. It sounded ok, until we went to dinner last night. What did I have? Soup, salad and water. Just thinking about it is making me hungry. It was good, I like salad and I like soup; but I like to eat it with something else.
After this, after a 40 day diet that just made me gain weight, not loose it; I decided to go back to my Diet Coke, but not go overboard with it. I will control what I eat, I am not a little girl anymore. I will not drink an excessive amount of Diet coke, just because it says diet, or drink or eat anything in excess.
I never want to regret eating. I want to enjoy eating, because I always have, but I don’t want to be ashamed of this. I hace described eating as muy favorite, or one of my favorite activities; I want to keep it that way. So I will continue to eat what I like, I just have to remember to take it easy on everything because nothing in excess is good and I am not a teenager anymore.
