Like a train wreck

Ok, I have been derailed and the results are not pretty. My foot is not healing the way it should. Homework and school have become overwhelming and suddenly at work I have so much to do that I cannot keep up. As a result I went back to eating whatever is in front of me with no regard what-so-ever as to content of said food.

I had candy at my Mom's at Christmas, I will admit to a couple of donuts in the office and I did eat the chocolate turtles one of the counselors put in my thank-you for helping me out bag. And Mr. Scale has the proof.

But that is ok because I see it and am going to do something about it.

Starting today I am back on track, but I think I need to do something a bit extreme to jumpstart the process because I had hit a platue.

So here is my plan- I am going to try the Cabbage Soup Diet 7 day plan. Maybe. Unless I get too hungry to think straight. Then I will add more veggies and fruit.

Most of the weight I will lose will be water weight, but I know that and am ok with it. I just need to get myself back in the habit of paying attention to what is going in my mouth and why. I need to cleanse all of the sugar I have ingested out of my system.

And I need to feel in charge again.

I'm sorry that your foot isn't healing well! That must be miserable. Hope you feel better soon.

Good luck!

One thing about the cabbage soup diet? I tried it, did it, kind of a thing and did not see any results in the first few days and I gave up after four days I think.

I'd be interested to hear how it goes for you. Maybe if I'd just stuck with it for two more days the results would have been amazing!!

BUT, I do like the soup it makes and the soup makes a very nice low calorie kind of a snack. And if you freeze them in containers that you can just heat up in the microwave it's a quick, hot snack perfect for winter.

Good luck!!
