I’ve been trying to stick to a diet that my werewolf self has been enjoying.
Sometimes it’s easier than other times. Like, when I just wanted to feel ‘normal’ and pick up a food that I used to eat. So, when I said farewell to my family and I wanted some old school comfort food. So I got two Sausage McMuffins and a soda.
Oh my god. I was exhausted. I got stomach cramps, and the runs when I finally got home. I’d not been that miserable in such a long time.
That’s how I know that going low carb is good for me. I’ll happily take my carbs in fruits, veggies, and other delicious places.
I’ve been IF off and on this week. I’ll not eat for a day, and then eat, then not eat. It makes me feel better, I think those McMuffins really messed me up for a little while.
Interestingly enough, over the course of thanksgiving, where I easily said ‘no thank you’ to the breads and other major sources of carbs, I didn’t gain a single pound. While I’m still at 250lbs, I have begun to notice more muscles in my legs that I hadn’t noticed before. And very soon, I’ll begin walking in my nifty nifty Vibrams.
Tonight, I really wanted to say ‘hell with it’ and get some cheeseburgers from McD’s. But, instead, I curled up and watched Fat Head, which it was very pleasant that it helped me understand a lot of the science that I didn’t have the ability to understand before. I really did enjoy watching it.
I’m reading Wheat Belly at the moment through my Audible.com account, and it is really fantastic. It’s a little heavy on the science, but if you’re comfortable with that, I totally reccomend the book to anyone, with a weight problem, without, werewolf or human.
I had a little bit of an issue today when there were a LOT of people talking about how disgusting the morbidly obese are. How they always smell of ‘unwashed crotch’ and things like that.
Now, I, with a BMI of 45, am considered morbidly obese. I don’t smell like ‘unwashed crotch’ all of the time. Nor do I consider myself ‘disgusting’. I personally think that I am exceptionally adorable. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that I’m fighting towards something. But, having awesome friends and stellar packmates makes things a lot easier.
Phew, now I need a drink of water, and a nap!
