Goodbye McDonald’s

17 Feb

Today is the last day of my old life.  The one where I ate whatever I wanted.  And I think I said a fitting goodbye.

We all have our weaknesses.  For some people, it’s sweets.  For me?  Fast food.  And specifically McDonald’s.  It has been my comfort food for as long as I can remember.  I seem to recall stories about when I was a child – the love started early.  If I was screaming and crying endlessly, all they’d do is get me McDonald’s fries and I would be quiet.  So yes, it started early.

Today I said goodbye to McDonald’s.  While I know I can eat there thanks to the points system from Weight Watchers – I’m not going to.  I don’t want to be tempted to fall into old patterns.

Tomorrow the points tracking begins.  The smaller portions begin.  The exercise begins.

Is there ever a food you miss when you’re dieting?  What’s yours?

    I think the hardest thing when I’m dieting is cheese, it’s the thing I miss the most 😦
