“Diet VS Denial”

I should definitely know better than to come in here this late at night and try to put a blog together. I have been thinking about this for a couple of days now. Diet versus denial. I in no way plan on putting this particular subject into my book “The Thin Line”. At least I am pretty sure I am not going too. Well maybe I won’t include it. Ok, so I am not sure at all.

Anyway, what I want to get at is, that even though one may go on a diet it doesn’t necessarily mean they have to deny themselves certain items. It also does not mean you have to deny yourself flavor. Most, if not all seasonings, are fine on any diet plan one may choose. 

As for sweets, go ahead and indulge from time to time just do not do it as often. Plan a little exercise for afterward to curb the guilt. Do you feel guilty or maybe even a little embarrassed when indulging in a cookie while at a stop light? Then it is time to stop, if however, you feel good enough with yourself to chow down a couple of chocolate chip delights while the world is watching, than good for you. 

Part of my problem is I believe that I did not see myself as fat. I used to tilt the scales between 258-260 lbs. That was quite a while ago and recently I weighed in at 228.8. (I have a digital scale now). For me though 230 is the new 240. I am not completely unhappy with myself, yet I feel I have a ways to go to achieve the goals I have set for myself. 

By the way, my goal is not a certain weight. It is a look. If I like what I see when I step out of the shower and still weigh over 215, then so be it. If I when eyeing myself in the mirror I do not like what I see despite being down to 210 or less than I will keep working at it. I should insert in here that at some point it should not be just about weight loss, weight training to tone and redefine my muscles has to enter into it.

That is why right now I am debating the gym membership versus bike ideas.

Again my main point is you don’t have to deny yourself just because you are on a diet. F Certain flavors will cost next to nothing in the way of calories. Oh yeah, some of the very things you were told were good for you, may not be allowed on some diet plans. For instance the Sugar Buster’s Diet does not allow for watermelon, corn, carrots, dark meat chicken, (most diets tell you, you need to eat skinless breast meat). the list is actually quite extensive. Some of the items you used to sneak to satisfy that sweet tooth are not as bad as you first thought.



About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
