Journal entry for 7/23/15

My food choices have been unhealthy lately.  I cannot expect to lose weight on a weekly basis, even a 1 lbs. loss if I keep this up.  I now worry about what will happen if I don't at least learn how to consume healthier fare.  I am lucky that my cholesterol is normal and so is my blood pressure.  It has been this way over the years.  I now wonder what it will be like for me to no longer take any blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol medication.  As of right now, I am still taking all three meds, but I still wonder.  Anyways, I do eat the wrong kinds of foods, even in moderation.  I do consume not only gravy and the fried chicken, but I also drink the sweet drinks and eat an abundance of dessert.  Sure they taste good, but I think it is better if I lay off of them or cut them out completely.  I have realized this for a long time, but I need to take action when it comes to my food intake.  If I don't then I will end up feeling guilty, I will not even lose weight slowly, and I may end up at least some complications from the diabetes.  Those are not the things that I want to end up dealing with for at least in the long term.  It is time for me to act for the long term.
