Now for the weight loss part.
I've had a few ups and downs in this department, including some stress that led me to eat some not-too-good-for-me things. For one, we ordered take out pizza. Talk about salt. It was like eating salt on wet bread. I use some salt in the pizza's I make myself, but never quite like this. Worse, the salty pizza made me crave more salty pizza and within 45 minutes of being done I was craving refined sugar to get the greasy-salt flavor out of my mouth. No wonder I'm fat. I'd eaten that pizza prior to my lifestyle change and never noticed it was so salty! I thought it was a bit salty, but it didn't taste like salty wet bread. Really, I should have thrown it out, but ate it anyway, such is the power of salt.

The craving for sugar didn't leave me all the way, and a couple of days later I was seized by the idea to stop into a local chain drugstore for a big bag of chocolate peanut candies to nosh on. When I got to the register, I discovered the price was nearly twice what was displayed without the coupon, card etc--an annoying issue with this chain. I couldn't stomach paying $6.89 for something that would push me closer to the grave. (Oddly, I was willing to pay $3.99). So I told the check-out guy, nicely and in a manner that made him laugh, that I would skip it. And for this discrepancy in price I am ever thankful, because it did snap me to my senses. Yes, there is something oddly insensible about that sugar craving when it hits.
In the meantime, I was able to get a big bag of naval oranges for much less than the candy would have cost, and I am back on the healthy eating bandwagon after that pizza hiatus. I will report on my weight loss next week since my official weigh-in day is tomorrow! (I didn't dare weight myself after the salty pizza last weekend!
