dear hamburger its you not me


    1. 2 thumbs up, Stacie! As the old song goes, “Breaking up is hard to do”! I too am amazed at how much better I feel!

  1. I’ve cut a lot of bad stuff out of my diet. I’ve even given up my ice cream. I’ve been feeling a lot better. I do still eat lean red meat once or twice a week, but only because I have a tendency to be just a tad anemic.

  2. I don’t eat a lot of bad food because I don’t have the best stomach, but I will say that sweets are my weakness. I have cut down quite a bit on them but I’m sure I can do more.

    1. Ugh! Sweets are my kryptonite! I’ve subbed sweets for either sugar-free sweets, or fruit. Good for you on cutting down on them!

    1. Thank you for that! I sincerely appreciate the love! If you ever want to vent, or whatever, feel free to add me as a friend on facebook. I’m married to Becky Willis, if you know her. Together, we can do this!

  3. Ugh, I need to break up with A LOT of things, not just burgers. I Have gained a lot of weight this year and need to take it back off.

    1. It’s been a struggle for me. Will power is an absolute must; BUT, allow yourself 2 things: 1. a cheat meal once a week, and 2. forgiveness if you fall off the wagon. I just got started blogging and I’m planning on posting workouts when I can get pictures or videos. We’ve got this!

    1. That. Is. AWESOME! Good for you! That makes me feel good knowing others such as yourself are taking the steps to make better food choices!

  4. Breaking up with sodas would be the most challenging for me because they’re so easy to sip on unconsciously! It sounds like you have a good idea of what foods you want to focus on. That should help a lot when rewiring your habits!

    1. Indeed I do! Believe me: It would be nothing to hop down to the store and grab a big Coke out of the soda fountain, but that would be defeating my purpose! I’m hoping that good food choices and increased water intake will soon be a habit!

  5. I have had to cut out my milkshakes and other sweets that I always crave. I have been cutting back on bread and trying to replace a lot of my meet with plant-based protein. I still treat myself once a week with one reward meal.

    1. Treating yourself is crucial in my opinion! Otherwise, it’ll drive you nuts! You’ve hit the nail on the head: To lose weight, we must first begin to substitute/eliminate foods that aren’t good for us. Good job on doing what you’re doing!

  6. I’m a stress eater and I have a lot of stress. Deadlines at work and school. I tell myself I need my lover, Chocolate. Even if I try something else the craving when’s and I lose. Any suggestions, bro?

    1. If you can get 30 minutes a day walking, that would start. Doesn’t need to be intense. Drinking more water, helps me to curb cravings. I searched for teas to help with stress
      Here’s a list of 6 natural teas for stress and anxiety so that you can literally drink your way to calmness and relaxation.
      Peppermint Tea (Mentha Piperita) …
      Chamomile Tea (Matricaria Recutita) …
      Lemon Balm Tea (Melissa Officinalis) …
      Passion flower tea (Passiflora incanata) …
      Green Tea (Camella Sinensis)
      I’m seriously going to look into green tea. Supposedly they have a lot of health benes
      Hope this helps sis. We’re going to make every effort to come down next year to see the fam, once everything is decided

  7. I think it’s awesome that you have gotten such a determination that it barely bothers you about giving those up. I’ve been there and I love that feeling. Keep trucking!

    1. Thank you! I’ve been doing some research, and I read that increasing protein intake actually will help curb sweets cravings. Once I read that, I thought, “Hmm!” Maybe that’s why I’m not craving sweets!

  8. i stopped drinking pop and it has made a huge difference. so much sugar in it and it’s bad for you.

    1. Yes indeed! People would be amazed at how much sugar is in ONE soda! Madness! Sad fact is a bottle of water is more expensive than a bottle of Coke in most cases!

  9. I’m in the beginning of my breakup with carbs. We just can’t be friends anymore. Maybe we can be acquaintances in the future tho. Hopefully. I miss fries. LOL

    1. Very witty comments! I love it! Yes I miss those crazy fries as well; but, think of how much they were holding us down?

  10. I try to break up with soda but I keep going back for more. I definitely need to hook up with water instead.

  11. It’s a huge challenge to switch to a lifestyle that’s completely different than the one that you’re used to but I’m glad that you pushed through with it. Your discipline is inspiring! It’s just so much better to see people eating healthier!

    1. I look at it this way: Do I want to continue to look and feel the way I do? Or, do I want to do something about it? When you breathe heavily tying your shoes, it’s time to make some changes. For me it’s an obvious choice! Thank you for your support!

    1. Good for you! For the most part, I’ve cut about 98% of sugar out! The only thing I won’t sacrifice is my morning coffee. I lost a ton of weight in the past, while not giving that up, so I know it CAN be done!

  12. i had to break up with potato chips which was easier than i thought because when i did i stopped gettiing migraines

    1. It’s funny (not literally) what we find that causes certain ailments such as migraines! Good for you! I haven’t had chips either in over 6 weeks!
