FOOD FIGHT  Topic #276:Name a food you used to like, but now avoid – what changed?

I could list a hundred foods I now avoid and a great many others I should avoid but don’t.  What changed my?  My weight.  And as it is moving up again, I am trying to figure out what to let go of next.  Still love all these things I no longer  eat.

  1. Banana splits without the bananas.  Don’t like bananas.
  2. All the chocolate I craved.
  3. Whipped cream in my coffee; no make that ice cream drizzled with chocolate
  4. More than four ounces of any red meat.
  5. Great big sloppy cheeseburgers with onion rings and a double order of french fries on the side, washed down with a milkshake–that was before I converted and started keeping Kosher.
  6. Pecan Pie ala mode with caramel syrup on the double dips of ice cream.
  7. All I wanted of my mother’s mashed potatoes with butter and heaps of gravey
  8. A whole pan of my mother’s home-made fudge.
  9. Piles of shortening bread washed down with rich whole milk
  10. Eating a Thanksgiving-like-meal every day.
So once I was Twiggy thin and could eat all I wanted.  Then in my late twenties and thirties I was just right.  Here’s a picture.  This was taken at Lake George.  Resting with me is the Famous Brutus the Wonder(ful) who first adopted David, then played Match maker by forcing him to notice me, helped us raise our kids and kept us safe for many years, and  who left us all too soon as dogs are wont to.  I think that’s because they deserve release from the suffering of this life and an early entry into heaven.  Let’s see, then I weighed about 130 which was good for my height.  Now I battle keeping it below 170 and at one point was over 200.
STAYING STRONG TIP for dieters:  If you can, make some food poison.  With others, try making them an every day indulgence.   That’s my approach to Chocolate and Ice cream, two of my most favored foods. Finally, join the Not Cleaned Plate Club.
Share, care, and stay strong.
