Is Food The Enemy?

Do you ever have those days where you think that food is the enemy? I'm thinking that way today, well most days recently. I think it may have something to do with my getting on the bathroom scales and the numbers aren't going down as I would wish but are slowly creeping up or just hovering around the same numbers.

I know it may have something to do with my blood glucose levels and not always eating as healthy as I should every day. I do it for the most part but occasionally I have that 'something nice' to eat. I know that if my BGL's are lower then the bathroom scales show that I either stay the same weight or slowly go down. The thing is my BGL's have been within my normal range. They've been anywhere from 4.8 mmo/l to 7.9 mmo/l when I've checked it.

Some days are such a battle at the moment. Maybe it's to do with the weather being colder at the moment and wanting comfort food. Maybe its to do with boredom. I don't know. I'm just struggling a little right now. I have every intention of doing the right thing but something just isn't going right at the moment.

Time to be super strict I guess ... no more junk food in the house (sorry boys), lots more healthier stuff and making sure the portions aren't too big. Maybe that will make a difference.

Yes, Jo, I'm afraid that the battle with your body and food is always going to be ongoing. It's just a matter of finding the balance between pushing yourself always to do better...and not being too hard on yourself. :-]

Poetess, I know its going to be an ongoing battle. I just wish it was a little easier than it is. I guess I shouldn't be so hard on myself right now as I know this challenge will get much harder as I get older. We're always our toughest critic aren't we?
