Since I retired in 2010, I have lost 70 pounds. I need to lose 20 more.  I say that alot.  I don't lose the pounds but I say that alot.

One of the things I have discovered 100% about myself is I eat what's put in front of me.  I'm good with a light, healthy lunch or a feast for 40.  

Today I ordered a baked potato from a restaruant around the corner & they laughed as I asked for the smallest one. It was way enough but if I got the biggest one I'd eat that too. And then I'd be miserable.  I'm the say with a candy bar.  A miniature bar would do the trick but I have to buy a bag of those & that's dangerous.  So I look for the smaller regular bar, as opposed to the king size option.  Even if the king size has 2 halves, I eat both.  It's not pretty but it's a fact.

And for the record, left to my own devices, I tend to eat odd & easy things.  I had biscuits & gravy for lunch one day this week & Rice a Roni another day.  And I'd have a salad every day if someone made it for me. 

Nothing sounds good & meat does not thrill me.  And my baked potato had bacon on it & I'd be ok if I didn't eat bacon again & I never thought I'd see that again.  I think I need to explore plant based ...maybe that'll help those 20 pounds. 

And bread does not thrill me either.  

I do eat too much sugar.  I'm going to try for no sugar September.
