I CAN EAT WHATEVER I WANTI can eat whatever I want. Don’t question me about it either! I can eat whatever I want, just because I lost weight. I can eat whatever I want, I know what I’m doing.
The only thing that is right about this post is the picture that you see above. This thought process has gotten me in a lot of trouble. I get in my flavor whore moments and like Kanye West says, “You can’t tell me nothing.” I feel justified because I lost weight. Because of the weight loss I think I’m invincible to weight gain. I have all that arrogance until one day I look in the mirror then my stomach is poking out. I’m like…oh no!
My biggest fear of losing weight is gaining it back. I’ve gotten rid of too many clothes to go back to wearing triple extra-large shirts. This fear, makes me go back to the drawing board and do what I do best. Remove solids, go on all liquids, and work like crazy in the gym for about a month straight (Current situation Day 12). After a month is up, I come up for air, look in the mirror and my body is looking right again. Disobedience is embedded in our DNA. With that being said, I turn to back to my hard-headed ways.
I think I have it down packed because I feel I know what I’m doing. I start justifying why I need this sugar, or this amount of bread, or this amount of mashed potatoes. Just stupid stuff. After a few weeks of justifying my wrong to make me feel good of the bad stuff that I eat, I walk by that mirror again, see that belly sticking out, then I diet.
It’s a yo-yo effect that some say is unhealthy. I get it. It’s a lifestyle change over all. I just wish I could eat whatever I wanted, without all that negative effects. I believe that’s a wish among all of us. The fact of the matter is I CAN NOT eat whatever I want. If I have a little bit of the wrong thing, I’m like a gremlin that eats after midnight. I go crazy. The whole attitude that I have when people ask me why I’m eating a cookie, or two, or ten…DON’T QUESTION ME ABOUT IT…gotta stop.
We all have our moments where we want to indulge. I’m not saying you can’t. For me, my indulgences, or cheat days turn into a cheat month. One thing that I am still adjusting to after my weight loss is how I force feed myself because I am full a lot. I still drink a lot of liquids when I am eating solids. I’m constantly full. I try to tell myself I need to eat something solid, when the reality of it is, I’m just full. There lies my excuse. Oh, I didn’t eat so now I can eat everything in sight. No, it doesn’t work like that. Once I’m full, that’s it. It’s easier said (typed) than done.
To get to the next level of total fitness where I want my body to be, is going to take much more discipline. Am I ready for it? I could type yes as a proclamation of doing it, but I’d rather my actions show it than words. I’m going to leave you with some of my quick workout clips that I filmed this week.
