When I saw that this week’s Manic Monday word was Over, I was overwhelmed with things to write about. But the main thing I thought about is how I am tired of being overweight. I am one of those people who can smell a piece of chocolate and gain 5 pounds. God forbid I should walk by a doughnut shop. The site of Krispy Kreme alone makes my waistband get tight!
I’ve tried all different kinds of things until it hit me that I was coming at it from all the wrong directions. I visited my hypnotherapist last week and discovered that she has recently become certified in holistic nutrition. Over the next few months, I will be going in for a series of holistic nutrition and hypnotherapy sessions that will help me focus on looking at food from a healthier standpoint and lose weight without focusing on dieting. Because, let me tell you, I am OVER diets!
So far, I have taken steps to cut out gluten and dairy from my diet, which are two of the most harmful things you can put in your body. I really thought giving up gluten would be hard until I discovered that you can find gluten-free everything! Dude! They even have gluten-free beer. (Suweet!)
But giving up the dairy is proving to be a bitch. I have switched to a soy creamer – which is a super big deal for me because I usually put Half and Half in my coffee. I have been making coffee with Silk or Almond Breeze instead of milk, and I’m not quite used to that yet. Maybe that’s because we’ve only bought vanilla. I think plain might not have such a funky flavor in a latte.
So, everybody cross your fingers for me as I focus on holistic nutrition. Being overweight will soon be a thing of the past!
