Where I've Been
Unfortunately, food addictions don't go away when the weight does. Sure, I'm still gluten free and holding steady against sugary drinks (coke, sweet tea, etc), but I've had other foods that are clearly not healthy that would still occasionally sneak into my diet. Examples include: French Fries, Corn Chips, Ice Cream and Candy.
In my head, I tell myself that I can have a "cheat day" every now and then, but it is never just a cheat day. Honestly, the best success I have ever had has involved no cheats (Whole 30 and Ketogenic Diet). By the end of both of these plans, I felt way better and in much more control.
Even so, social situations, holidays, and nostalgia often trip me up even when I'm at my best. I inevitably find some reason to indulge, and thus starts the cycle of dependency again.
So, you may be wondering what the damage is. Fortunately, it's not that bad. After all, I started back in 2012 at 350lbs and I have come a long way since those days. Even so, I have continued to gain since the beginning of the year. So...here is my weigh in from yesterday morning.
