So what do you get when you eat a pizza, when the reason to avoid it is not simply weight loss ? A night of running to the bathroom every hour and a son who's talk box is locked in the on mode. Not good ! However it does serve to confirm that certain foods ARE indeed bad for our particular bodies, and as tired and burned out as I might feel, it could always be worse. Now in this pre dawn silence, I feel like I want to drink a gallon of water and never eat anything outside of the plant kingdom again. I am actually craving berries and salad.
It was an important step though. It served to remind me that no matter what the scale says, we are all better off for the way we live now than our old "easy" ways. Nothing worth having in life comes easy.
