I can't remember what we were discussing in line at Aldi's.

But I do know that I said, "Well, you know this has been The Year of Living Healthfully."

And then Katie started to laugh.

and laugh and laugh and laugh.

I have continued to eat healthier.
I have not gone back to Diet Dr. Pepper.
I am still eating whole, natural foods.

It was too bad that I did not spot rule #53 until Monday. (Michael Pollan Food Rules)

"Serve a proper portion and don't go back for seconds."

Herein lies my problem as far as weight loss. With all the cooking for fresh delicious food. All those new recipes that I tried and only I wanted to eat...well...I ate and I ate and I ate.

Too much food.

Rule #45

Eat less.

Ah so now you tell me.

That homemade Chicken and dumplings was just too good. It took so long to make.
It cost so much to make.

It was too much for me. I was not able to eat less.

I was focusing on food and cooking a lot and spending more money at the store...
and I didn't see any results.

I lost interest.

I feel a little like an alcoholic who has to work in the brewery.

Yes, I remember the 'choose your hard' quote. I think I must have chosen denial.

So that is where I am at today, a few weeks before The Year of Living Healthfully ends.

Apparently, it's hilarious to some.
