So we have to lose some pounds; about 20 or so. Which way to turn to get serious about this?
We already cut out ice cream, cake, bread, butter and cheese grits. We have cut down portions. No, really. Have not seen a slice of pizza in a month.
Then we find out that 2% milk has more calories than whole milk: that strawberries and blueberries have a bunch of carbs; that it’s a myth that there are no calories in cookies that are broken. We could quickly get back to ground zero in this quest for a healthy, slim future.
Eating out seems out of the question, what with super sizing and lattes and the smell of fresh rolls and butter. Eating in should work – until you’ve found out you made a mistake. Like – who knew that corn is a grain!
So we sit here munching on celery sticks, dreaming of fried chicken and banana splits and remembering the good ole days when you were only concerned with whether you could afford it, not how many carbs it had.
OK, so we obviously need an attitude adjustment . . . or maybe a program that delivers only legal food. . . or someplace where we’d get gold stars for every pound lost. . . or a personal trainer who will work us sweaty.
We will decide very shortly . . . and stick to it this time! Meanwhile, has anyone seen the Frosted Flakes?
