I am sure this topic comes up a lot here.
I just had ACDF surgery and now I am not working and sitting around at home a lot. Even though i go on walks, it is nothing compared to my 50+ hour a week as a restaurant manager. Even though before surgery I was limited on what I could do, I was still standing and walking most of the day.
Now I am at home sitting, walking a little, mostly on my computer with.....
DOZENS OF TEMPTATIONS.
Everyone is bringing me doughnuts, ice cream, pizza, cookies, all kinds of bad stuff. Guess what! I eat them, because I am bored and it is the one of the only things that gives me pleasure because I can't do anything fun like bike riding or anything.
In 2006-7 I lost 45 pounds with weight watchers and became a lifetime member. So I know how to loose weight and eat healthy but it seems I just can't lately and i just don't have the desire to like I used to. When I weighed my self I only gained a few pounds but I am still scared of how much I could gain. A few pounds a week for 8 weeks...................
What do you all do to keep your mind off bad food?
