Some days

Saturday, February 24, 2018

I have been eating low carb, now keto, for 8 months and most days it is easy, I have this down. I'm losing weight, my blood sugar is under control and I feel great. There are some days; rainy, cool days, boring days, days I'm feeling low, that I start feeling sorry for myself. I want to eat real pizza or chocolate or even a piece of toast! Today my husband came home with a large, ooey, gooey pizza and proceeded to stuff 4 pieces in his chubby face and then told me I looked grumpy. Hell yes I'm grumpy, its been 8 months since I had a piece of pizza and you know I don't eat it, you know I'm hungry and you didn't even think to pick up something I could eat. I think I'm entitled to be grumpy every now and then. Going off plan isn't worth it though. Every day I eat right brings me closer to my goal and saves my toes and even eventually my legs from amputation. I now have my health and my eyesight and my toes will be around for a lot longer. My health is way more important than a piece of pizza!

    I'd be grumpy too!! But you're right-- You can't give in; your health depends on YOU!! Stick to your guns - stay on track- and drop that piece of pizza on your husbands head! And he should have picked you up something to eat-- but he didn't think pass his own desires. emoticon emoticon

    I feel for you. Having a spouse that is not on the same page as you is tough, especially if he intentionally is provoking you.
