So yesterday was supposed to be my first day of the Pre-Op diet.
I made it until 5 pm when I suddenly remembered the barbecue we’d picked up at Sam’s Club. Before long I was rationalizing my way into thawing it out and cooking it for dinner.
My oldest daughter, Savannah, tried to talk me down but to no avail. She knows better than to argue with me when I’m like this.
Once the rationalizing kicks in on why it’s ok for me to go off the plan then it’s just a downhill plunge from there.
So the question becomes this: What can I do to get through an entire day of my Pre-Op diet without going off the plan?
Obviously this is my biggest problem. I eat off the plan. I eat when I’m not really hungry.
I could have stayed on the plan but I let the temptation get the best of me. One thing God is teaching me is that we worship what we love. And I love food.
