Cold Turkey

So I've finally decided to climb back on the horse. I started seeing a chiropractor who also practices internal medicine. He has worked the kinks out of my back as much as he can, and he says the hurdle that is my lower back is directly related to my digestion. So, at his direction, I've gone cold turkey on milk, soda, and am trying to eat more roughage. You know, I never really liked salad, but we got some baby romaine at the store the other night and I suddenly had this awakening, like: "Oh my gosh, where have you been all my life?!"
Suddenly, salad tastes GOOD. Maybe I just had a crunchy lettuce problem, cuz I normally hate lettuce, but that baby romaine... WOW. I must also admit that I've had a real problem with Taco Bell lately. I have been craving it nonstop. Mainly the baja chalupas, accompanied by only an entire bag full of fire sauce. Everyone suspects I am pregnant because of this unexplainable, ravenous craving. I highly doubt that I am though. I JUST WANT SOME FREAKIN' TACO BELL, OKAY?!
I've been trying to cut back on other dairy items as well. My weakness is ice cream. I could eat ice cream on the coldest day in January and be happy as a lark. I have a Taco Bell & ice cream problem. The fact that I haven't had ice cream in a week or so is making me edgy. Hubby has promised me some for my upcoming birthday though :)
The Taco Bell problem is not helping my weight problem. To my shame, I am the heaviest I have ever been in my entire life right now. I would probably qualify for The Biggest Loser. The sheer awesomeness that is The Biggest Loser T.V. show started last night, and it always inspires me to try to get out and improve my life. I am going to try to start walking daily again... and I finally found my left shoe which had been missing for a week. Actually, Andy found it. Apparently Grace hid it at the bottom of the laundry basket. Way to go Queen Fu!
Well, taquitos are done, and hot sauce is calling, possibly with some salad... Ooh, yeah, salad. That'll do me.
