We are going to the lake today - swimming and knee boarding First time this summer, i will also not be wearing a bathing suit I feel that bad about my body right now.
I didn't mention in my intro that while on Atkins I suffered from digestive issues because I don't have a gall bladder - i wound up having epiploic-apendigitis about six months before I had my appendix out. I knew right then I had to stop doing Atkins. I wasn't "going" like I was supposed to and the distress it was causing was not only related to that but after 2 weeks I stopped losing all together.
My body simply needs veggies and fruit.
I much more happier now and am still reading the PB book. I am also in school for Respiratory Therapy so this is right up my alley with Anatomy and Physiology. I did not get to go play yesterday i was cooking my weeks food for my lunches and because we are going to the lake today I won't be in the mood to cook tonight. Not that I have to eat, but my hubby will. He is still stuck on biscuit and potatoes because momma said so mentality. He knows they are not good for him, but he gets almost ravenous when he eats. It's like watching an animal that's never seen food before and thinks it's going to run away.
We met at the gym over 12 years ago and we were "fit" by CW standards. i was running about 4 miles a day, at about 6.5-7MPH and didn't think anything of it.
We both have put on at least 50lbs. We got HAPPY. i capitalize that because I think to myself *are we really?*
We look and feel like hell, I can't stand wearing shorts let alone a bathing suit and I hope he doesn't take his shirt off in public.
Isn't that terrible? to not be attracted to yourself so much it effects the way you look at your SO? Maybe it's shallowness, but I love him deeply, I think it's because I know there are healthy bodies under our insulation. i will do it the PB way until he realizes "She might be right, maybe I'll give it a go" thing is he is not a veggie or fruit guy.
Back to the Lake: taking meat rolls just in case and some cheese cubes. i have cut up Some peppers and will pack a couple of apples just in case i shouldn't be hungry though I am making a spinach omelet sans cheese for breakfast yummers!
