Life is not all that simple and when you want to do everything right, it will make sure to throw at you everything wrong. Thats life, deal with it.
When I started with my weight loss project the first thing that I decided to give up was eating out. So, if I fancy eating something delicious I would make it at home. I never said I will give it up, I just took it up for a month as an experiment.
Now I knew that in initial stages of weight loss having an outside meal once in a week/month is also not possible but then how long can I hide in my house refusing to meet people.
So, I ended up sitting with 2 of my close friends at the famous Burger joint whose burger and french fries I would eat at least once in a week (one being my sister and the other my husband).
I was so damn afraid to fail at that time. Anyways I decided to dress my best to make myself realize that look I am loosing weight and clothes are fitting much better now, I seriously can't blow this for a burger.
Now I am a human and that too a food loving human. So naturally my mouth was watering but I sat in front of them, while they were happily enjoying their meals, sipping coffee. This should not go without mentioning that I took coffee to stop my self drooling all over the place.
Each of them had not one but two burgers accompanied with french fries and soft drink. And I was sitting there watching them and slowly I started watching others too. You will never fail to sight overweight people in such joints and even the thin ones who are gorging them selves with these goodies are right on the track of fatdom.
That day it gave me immense pleasure to know I am aware, instead of concentrating on what I am missing I checked out the bulges and double chins of people happily eating away.
Believe me the urge to have a burger meal has gone for good now. I no longer am that strict with myself but if you ask me to have one loaded burger then I already feel like puking.
Imagine, I craved for this kind of burger for so many years. Ate it without giving a single thought about the bulges it was contributing to my body.
Next time you are tempted, while on a diet, just look around and you will get the answer why you should not eat such stuff.
