There is a quart of ice cream in my freezer that my mom bought at Christmas, I keep forgetting to throw it away on trash day, I imagine that it is pretty gross by now. But upside, I didn't eat it!

Since changing how I eat and when I eat my big meal, my salt and sugar cravings have disappeared. I am committed to making a pasta casserole tomorrow. I'm not excited about that (and don't suggest spaghetti squash, I get grossed out prepping it). I only make / eat pasta about once every 6-8 weeks. The last time I had pasta was in January. It isn't pasta that makes people gain weight (pasta is almost 100% carbs), it is the sauce and the portion size that do a person it. I am just not a huge pasta fan--I'd rather have a rice (brown, cargo, wild), purple barley, legumes, almost anything instead of pasta.

Good for you! I feel the same way about the pail in my freezer. I will probably give it to the neighbours along with the "cake scraps" from my three orders. They love it and so does my body!

Forgot to add I did not make it to the pool today. The pain in my left flank escalted to almost as bad as the liver problem I had recently. I had one more morphine left and took it. TB will tell you that for me to voluntarily take anything stronger than Tylenol extra strength (on top of my chronic pain meds) means it is bad. I thought it was sciatica, but it is not travelling down my leg. I figured it was a muscle pull, but now it is moving, getting stronger and is constant, though it does spike when I move.

I know this sounds like an excuse, but really, I am mortified that I only got one pool trip in this week and that I am back to dealing with mystery pains in my side. I thought that was behind me with losing my gallbladder.

For some reason, my Dad would torpedo my Mom's weight loss attempts. Whenever she said "I'm going to lose weight" Dad would show up with a box of chocolate-covered cherries. Those were my Mom's fatal flaw! Guess Dad liked her chubby. Good work on avoiding that tub of ice cream Carol!

CG, my DH wants me to lose weight and knows I need it for my health's sake, but still he brings this stuff in the house. The donuts, cookies and chips I don't care about. I can easily pass on them. But he knows chocolate ice cream is my weakness. I still haven't eaten it. It's actually chocolate marshmallow. Yum!

I can't eat pasta because of my blood sugar. Here is a pic of a serving of pasta. This just wouldn't cut it unless I mixed in a load of veggies with it!

I wouldn't eat a full sized candy bar every day, but I would eat 2-3 mini candy bars or truffles, doesn't make much sense, but that's how my brain works!
Last month I asked Spike to get me some cookies and cream ice cream. I quickly discovered I don't like it as much as I thought I did. So I had one small bowl, it sat in the freezer and when I looked at it last night, it had more ice crystals than ice cream. I tossed the rest of it. Ice cream along with cakes, cookies and other sweet foods, are such that I have learned to not want anymore. Right now my biggest hankering is for dark chocolate. It has just enough bitterness in it, to keep me from going overboard. My taste buds are constantly changing. Now if I could just give up coffee with half and half with sugar, I would be all set.

So often it is the spouse that will shoot down any attempts for their mate to lose weight. It is a built-in fear factor. They fear that the opposite sex will find their spouse attractive. It takes a health scare to bring the spouse to terms with their mate losing weight. And sometimes then it is still not enough for the torpedo to end. That is when the couple together have to go to the doctor and hear it from that department, just how important it is for the weight loss to occur. Either your spouse loses weight, or you lose your spouse.

My second husband was my torpedo. But I was determined and completely ignored his nasty cracks as to why I was determined to lose weight. After a while he finally got the message and stopped.
