Greetings all. My Spirits and Energy levels are good.
First of all Happy Valentines Day for those of you that celebrate or observe it. I know I do. Well a special shout out to the ladies............ OK y'all I am old fashioned and traditionally this is the time that "US" men to out and buy flowers and treats for our ladies. So there you go.
Anyhow it looks like Denis is posting some great stuff here. We are oh so fortunate that he is on board with us feeding us great information. He has a different outlook on Zero Carb (ZC) and is a true asset to this little blog. Thank you my Friend!
So far I have been maintaining my weight, going up and down a pound or two, but always coming back to the same weight. I basically eat smaller portions. I want to avoid as Denis puts it "All U can eat ZC". Those days need to be part of my past. "Eat to Live, Not Live to Eat" a famous saying by someone that I just can't remember at the moment.
Now to be honest and honest I have always been with you my Friends and Family there have been recent times that I have been tempted to overeat. WHY ???? Yes why indeed!!!
What is it hat triggers that: "EAT, EAT, EAT and EAT some More" mentality??? I wish I knew, but I don't. For "ME" it is a matter of self control, easily said yet often hard to do. I sit down to a great plate of Zero Carb food, eat, feel good and then I start to think......should I serve just a little more? Should I? Yes, just a little more. Then it starts................ and then it ends............. and then I think to myself: WHY OH WHY did I do that???
I wasn't hungry, the food did not contain carbs, so whats the deal? Ah my Friends and Family what is the DEAL INDEED??? Are we just programmed to "Get it (ALL) while you can?" I know mentally that there is plenty more to eat, so is it some animal instinct that just kicks in? Hey I am just thinking out loud y'all!
Yet for "ME" this can be a daily battle. Why is enough not always enough.................mentally? At least some of the time. The Key my Friends and Family is to...............................
Have a Healthy day my Friends and Family. Physical Battles and Mental Battles are all around us. Some will fall and some will rise to the occasion. Lock your shields, stead fast and Always Battle On!!!
