Let's see, I do try to save a couple of points for noshing. But I'm trying to chose very high fiber stuff for snacks like apples, Fiber One bars, etc.
I also drink tea, brush teeth, or read and then go to bed. I also like to look at fashion magazine while in the bathtub. You know, the really, really awful ones like "In Style" or whatever. I like to imagine what I would look like if I had some of the really gorgeous cloths made for me. And I'm working on developing a "style." Right now, I'm "grunge mom." I'm the queen of tee-shirts and jeans. You know who I really, really liked? Katherine Hepburn. The entire "pants with cuffs and crisp, clean shirts" seriously appeals to me. And I'm tallish so that stuff really looks nice on me, once I'm near GW.
So that's what I do when I'm really close to losing it on nighttime snacks and ruining my day.
I'm trying to get tea into every day now. It's been one 11 days since my last Coca Cola. I miss it. But, I do feel better. I have a giant Heath bar in my glove box for after WI tomorrow morning. But it doesn't sound so appealing right now. (I used to take baths with Heath bars and Coca Cola. The corn syrup manufacturers of the world must LOVE me!)
Linda, the artificial stuff is the one thing I disagree with WW about. But it came up in our meeting last week and I was fascinated to hear all these 50 year old grandmothers voicing their concerns about all the junk we have in a typical American diet nowadays. I wish WW focused on educating people about REAL nutrition, IE avoiding corn syrup as much as possible, CAFO meat, heirloom veggies and fruits which have flavor as well as more nutrients, etc. I agree that getting weight off quickly and safely is important but I can't help but wonder what kind of food revolution would happen in the U.S. if everyone involved in WW actually saw a video on CAFOs during a meeting. Would 15,000 people get disgusted and opt out of the current system? 50,000? 150,000?
What if WW charged $1 more for every frozen dinner thingie but made them only from certified organic suppliers or CAFO free meat?
What if we talked about the fact that people used to spend more than 10% more of their income on food 100 years ago and got much better quality?
I rambled. Sorry!
