Don't tempt me


14 posts in this topic

So, I was walking down 28th street in Boulder after having to throw some money into the bank and in order to get to the bus stop to get back to Longmont, I passed by a McDonald's. There was a lady sitting on the patio telling me to come over to her. I said that I don't have time because I didn't (though if I did, I am not going to spend it in the sun). She then told me she had a bag full of big Macs she wanted to give me and holding back the rage anyone on a liquid diet feels, I again said no.

So she then said "but they are hot and juicy", to which my response was "DON'T TEMPT ME!"... And for as loud as I said it, I'm actually surprised I didn't curse. Even though I have a newfound appreciation for solid food since I've been drinking my meals, I'm not going to eat garbage! Since Sunday, my weight is down 6,6 kilos (or 14.5 lbs) and if I want a burger, I'm going to make myself one using healthy ingredients.

Good job staying strong! But, someone with a bag full of big macs to hand out is pretty randomly weird, even for Boulder.

Good thing she wasn't offering vanilla pepsi!

Yeah, that was pretty weird. Like, if you didn't want them, why get so many?

Why would you want to? Diet soda is awful! It's better to drink something with some nutritional value, such as chocolate milk or 100% fruit juice.

Even juice, you want to stay away from. But I agree, that is dang weird of someone to do. I haven't been to McDonald's in almost two years and thank GOD, I'm not tempted by foods that aren't appealing to my health. My goodness, I'm thankful you fought the temptation, some people aren't as strong or disciplined as you.

Don't get me wrong, McDonald's isn't my thing anyway (even before surgery, I would make jokes about how the "food" at McDonalds was okay for Hindus to eat because it is made from free-range used gym mats and shredded Chinese newspapers) but being on a liquid diet, the temptation to sink my teeth into a beef-flavoured gym mat patty is pretty big.

Girl I feel your pain ever since I started this new diet everyone and their brother is coming out of the woodwork like "Steph want a piece of candy, steph want to go grab a slice, steph I couldn't eat all my fries, want the rest?"

Please god make it stoppppp!!!!!! lol. I'm terrified of the 9 week diet after surgery and pray that I'm strong enough to get through it when it's my turn. Every time I'm tempted I just remind myself in one short week of eating clean and changing my portions I lost 9 lbs and that pizza/candy/fry is not worth gaining it back.
