What am I doing? Depends on the day.
Having to learn how to cook....
Prep work takes me forever, I've cut myself three times
And everything I make is freaking delicious.
Planning meals is my nightmare.
Oh yeah another frustration:
Peeing like every hour because you drink more water than you ever used to....having to pee is the worst feeling in the world.
I love the humor in most of these! It IS tough feeling and looking better, isn't it? :-) (My local thrift stores are supplying me with some great new clothes that fit!)
But yeah, it's tough watching people you love eat stuff you KNOW (now) is bad for them and you can't do a thing about it. My sis and brother in law are 15 years older than I am (i.e., in their 80s) and live in another state. They've got lots of health problems. We just got back from a visit and I wish SO MUCH I could convince them, or help, or cook for them, or something...
Old dogs, new tricks...not easy.
I'm noticing the same "frustration" you guys are having - my clothes are expanding. My jeans have grown to the point that they are noticeably loose and require a belt (which I don't own, so I keep having to pull them up). My lawyer suits are also expanding, and if they keep growing at the same pace, I'll need to go to a tailor to get them taken in. This may turn out to be a very expensive diet.
Now that I have the highest quality food in my diet, I am starting to expect the highest quality out of everything in my life. As I replace clothes that have gotten too big, I find myself moving away from craptacular mass-produced clothing from big box stores that falls apart after a wash and a half. Instead, i get fewer pieces of clothing that are nicer quality, which of course is more expensive. I justify the cost by figuring that I expect to remain largely the same size for a long period of time, for the first time ever.
