I just had another great weighin - down .8 from Monday to 158. Soooooo glad the scale seems to be moving in the right direction. Im not doing anything different than I have been doing, so maybe this is a sign that after 4 months of this, I might be getting somewhere. Im hesitant though to get too excited since I know the scale does play these games so hopefully on Friday I will get another sign that the plateau might be nearing its end.
I was a little ticked off today at work when I told the woman who stocks the kitchen that we were out of the fat free sugar free creamer they usually buy. She said that they were cutting back and not buying that kind of creamer (will buy the normal full-fat, real sugar kind). I asked why they coudlnt cut back on something else, like cheetos. She said that she would ask around but that everyone would rather have cheetos than fat free sugar free creamer. I said, well why cant you buy cheetos OR m& ms? Or cheetos OR cheese nips. Or Cheetos OR chocolate candy mix. As you can see its pretty ridiculous our kitchen currently consists of cheetos, m&ms, wheat thin, cheese nips, chocolate covered raisins, hersheys chocolate candy mix, and pita chips, but they are "cutting back". Cutting back on anything remotely healthy is more like it.
It just makes me angry that because more people want the unhealthy stuff, people like me who want something healthy will have to suffer. Not because what I want is healthy and I choose not to eat the unhealthy stuff, but because the majority of people want that unhealthy stuff and they win out over me. Not fair!
*Edit: the point I was getting at wasnt that I dont have any healthy options (my desk is stocked with healthy things and I bring in my own lunch every day), its that people actually choose unhealthy foods over healthy foods. And my work (and society for that matter), seem to cater to these people, not the people that could actually lower our insurance because we are trying to lose weight and become healthier people.
