Flashbacks of the Crazy Way I Used to Eat and the Realization that I'm not an NFL Football Player
It's pizza night at our house every Friday. It's a cooking break for me and a food that my little boys think of as divine. I was thinking that I already ate my moderately sized dinner and I'm not going to have pizza and that I rarely eat pizza now. I've come a long way. Even 6 months ago, Pizza Fridays often meant 5-6 slices washed down with two Diet Cokes. Weekend often involved Thai, Italian, Chinese or Gourmet Meals with my husband (Mr. High Metabolism) sharing 2 entrees, appetizers and dessert. I once remember going out to lunch with colleagues and ordering shrimp linguine, having a salad, sharing a calamari appetizer and then sharing a plate of fried Italian donuts with a ganache type sauce. My eating was out of control..almost an unconscious impulse. Now the thought of those eating habits really grosses me out. Thank you Lap Band.
Do you have any crazy eating flashbacks?
PS I do eat all the aforementioned foods but I don't allow myself the NFL Football player portions of the past.
