Jayy, thanks that makes complete sense what you are saying. I think we are going to just try paleo and cut out all the junk and see what that does for her first. I think if I can get her two weeks out and the cravings diminish it will help tremendously. She has tried WW before and while she lost some she would eventually stall and gain again because she was able to justify her points with junk so much of the time and at that time none of us were eating healthy at all. I know that the majority of this is my fault because of the food that I previously would buy and the amount of fast food we would eat each week was insane because of work schedules. I have realized that this is one area I cannot afford to be lazy in any longer. I am responsible for what she puts in her mouth simply because she is a child and doesn't buy her own food, and as harsh as that is for me it is the truth.
I have learned along this journey with the help of a great sermon my Pastor preached on self control that self control is ALWAYS on it is just a matter of whether we choose to exercise it weekly, daily, or hourly when faced with triggers. So when the new Pizza Hut commercial comes on advertising the most delicious looking mini garlic bread pizza's I just tell myself time to exercise some self control and change the channel LOL. Hcg has given me the realization that I am not a prisoner to food and don't have to eat anything that isn't protocol for me at this given moment. There will be moments that I will one day once again have P4 foods but they will always be on rare occasions and in extreme modification simply because they are not good for me, hoping to be able to educate my daughter similarly.
