    A stream of consciousness from the brain of B.K. DeLong

    Back on the Wagon, Again

    Filed under: B.K. DeLong @ 8:34:15 am

    Well, this morning I’ve started back on track to “improve my way of eating". I say “Way of Eating” because it’s not any particular diet per se. It’s modified South Beach Diet (SBD) if you want to label it but basically it’s just good food sense - low fat, low carb, no hydrogenated oils, lots of water & omega 3s.

    I gave up on SBD the day Will was born because a combination of things - 1) I was in the mood to celebrate and reward myself, 2) I didn’t want to have to think about eating or cooking, 3) It was just easier. Well, it was easier until the cravings came back. About a month ago I started to have an ice cream sunday every Friday & the week Kirky was gone in California I was a horrible, horrible sugar/snack binging fiend.

    I haven’t weighed myself recently but I probably gained about 15lbs back which would put me at about 280lbs total. I think my lowest was 264lbs. Anyway, its not just about the weight. As much as I love all the junk it seriously effects my blood sugar and puts me into these draining “food comas” after meals. I daresay it even contributes to my lethargy & poor moods.

    Luckily, I’m starting back up pretty quickly so the weight gained doesn’t have time to, er, get stored & solidify. However exercise will be interesting - since I haven’t done my walks since May, I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to cope with the heat.
