I'm not sure exactly how to say this without sounding like I'm making excuses.
I'm not a sweet eater. I LOVE rolls, breads, carby veggies, things like that. I like a piece of chocolate maybe once a month, if that. But, oh give a big ol' yeast roll with melted butter and I'm in Heaven. In late August the fresh corn on the cob with butter and salt, I could eat my weight. Thinking of it now makes my mouth water.
After reading Jimmy's blog from yesterday he said "I don't want to live without "sweet" for the rest of my life, but I'll agree to do it for periods of time to manage my weight." thats how I feel about my bread/carby veg issues. But in a way, I feel like people who have the issues I do, actually got it a little worse. Ok, before you go all crazy on me, I know everyone is dealing with their own issues. But when your issues are 'sweet', there are a lot of replacements out there. Some of the recipes and sugar free candies taste just as good as their 'sugar' originals . For Thanksgiving lots of folks made the Sugar Free Low Carb Pumpkin pie, LC cheesecakes, SF jello and the list goes on. You can walk into any grocery store or gas station anywhere and get a piece of SF candy.
I'm not aware of a replacement for a good ear of corn ( I know we can still have corn in moderation, I don't want one ear, I want 5 or 6, the same way a 'sweet' junkie can't stop at one or two pieces of Regular sugar candy once they get started) I also know their are a lot of recipes out there to try and replace rolls and breads. I haven't found one that replaces a yeast roll, and you can't go into the store or the gas station and just pick one up ANYWHERE.
I made a commitment to myself to post my menus ~good or bad. I hope others will learn from my mistake and know that sometimes even when your not 100%, don't give up. We all can't be 100%, 100% of the time, just keep on keeping on.
Sorry for whining, I'll end by quoting Jimmy again when he said "It's all about finding what you need to do to lose and maintain your weight and health." I'm trying to figure out this addiction of mine. In a way maybe its better that I can't replace it with artificial foods. I have to just learn to deal with it and I'm not going to lie, sometimes its REALLY hard.
