Idiot, That’s me.

Can I just start off by saying that I hate myself? No really, I do. I'm an absolute idiot. Other suitable word candidates are buffoon, dummy, something along those lines.... Like really. I had been doing fantastic at staying on my diet for once in my life. I managed 9 days without cheating on my diet. That's pretty flippin' awesome...for me at least. So since it's summer now, my dad broke out his nerdy apron and got the good ol' BBQ up and running....UHOH. This is where it alwayssssssssssss begins... Hamburgers. I just don't understand why they have to smell sooooooooooo delicious. So it's safe to say I caved. Lost all nerve. So what did I do...? I ate one.... not even a little bitty bite...but an entire hamburger. OH THE SHAME. WOE IS ME. Um no, that's a wee bit dramatic. Needless to say I was really disappointed in myself. As soon as I finished I instantly felt the regret...So it looks like I'm back to square one. Been clean for 1 far....

    I understand how hard it can be in the presence of good smelling food. And then I tell myself “One small bite, that’s all I will have.” I have gotten better at resisting the temptation of “one small bite,” because I am aware now of the many ways it affects me when my Phe levels are high. I hate it when eating out at restaurants because there isn’t alot of choices-wish I could have something besides salad or a vegetable side dish.
