Thursday Thirteen #4

Thirteen Things that I will have to stop eating in order to lose weight on my diet:
I gained a mere 65 pounds during each pregnancy with my daughters and have lost roughly 75 pounds so far. I would still like to lose another 15 pounds. From my lips to God's ears.... These are in no particular order:

1. Pizza- a.k.a. the carb killer.

2. Chips- all kinds- and I favor all the spicy hot brands... They know who they are...those oily salt drenched gifts from God.

3. Fast food. The usual suspects...mexican, burgers, mexican burgers, fries...oh not the fries. I love them very much especially with chili and cheese on top.

4. Any type of chocolate candy that I can get my hands on but claim I have in the house as an incentive on getting my youngest daughter to use the potty.

5. All processed boxed foods. Mac-n-cheese is good for the quick fix but ...even the organic still is made with cheese. bummer.

6. Hotlinks, hot dogs, or any other meat shaped like a sausage with or without the word 'hot' in front of it.

7. Mash potatoes. Mixing broccoli in them doesn't bring their calorie count down. I love me some potatoes.

8. Donuts. These just should not be sold at supermarkets. The temptation is just too overwhelming.

9. Dessert or any meal I can convince my husband to get in the car and go drive for past 8PM in exchange for...a big thank you of course.

10. Salsa- because it can't be eaten without chips. I don't include Tapatio in this. I can not live without Tapatio on everything.

11. Cheese... a limited amount is ok but I eat it on everything that I put hot sauce on so one's gotta go.

12. Guacamole, again it's a chip thing. By eliminating chips alone I could probably lose five pounds in a day. It's that or start buying stock...

13.Oh no not the alcohol :(

Wow with a diet like that it makes me wonder how I lost any weight at all. But in truth I do jog everyday for at least 30 minutes and most of my binge eating happens on the weekends when my husband is home. I keep to a pretty decent diet on the weekdays, egg whites, brown rice, brown pasta, chicken, fish, dried berries, and the occasional diet soda. The list above is mostly just the crap I snarf down on the weekend as a treat for eating well during the week.

Could never give up pizza, love it too much.

I love Pringles, and nachos so I couldn't give up the chips. I love cheese, my kids wonder how I eat blocks and blocks of it. I love potatoes.

I don't like boxed mac-n-cheese, I don't like hot dogs, but I love sausages and brats. Chocolate is ok once in a while.

Good luck on the last 15lbs, but great job on the first 75lbs.

Come check me out when you get a chance.

Okay, I must be the other woman. We have all the same loves. I can't tell you what a weakness I have for jalapeno and cheddar crunchy cheetos!

I have about 40 lbs. left to go. I gained 50 lbs with each of my 1st three pregnancies, then 35, 30, and 45 with my last three.

great list!

Very well done! When I decided I needed to lose some weight, I did it by eating the same types and amounts of food, but instead of having three large meals a day, I split it between five smaller ones.
It worked. And that was several years ago, and I'm still doing it.
