So, You Fell Off The Weight Loss Wagon: This Is How I Get Back On Tract…

For some reason, I always seem to make long titles. I don’t know how good that is for the search engines, but it’s what I do. I don’t know about you, but from time to time I fall off the diet wagon. Yes, even I do.

‘Now, I can blame my wife for asking me to go through the drive through window at Taco BellⓇ, but I can’t cop out, pass the buck or whatever you call it anymore because I am an adult’ ~ your author

And, as adults we have to shoulder the responsibility for our own actions, don’t we? Sure we do. You know, Taco Bell has to be one of my favorite fast food establishments. And, as a vegetarian, I get two bean burritos without the cheese. So, me eating there isn’t as bad as it could be…

My wife still thinks different, but recently she’s given up chicken because it doesn’t taste the same to her. She is slowly converting to becoming a vegetarian. Maybe.

“The secret to getting back on tract once you fell off the diet wagon is to simply hop back on again with a little more willpower. But, as soon as you begin eating your regular diet of plant based whole food, your body says ‘thank you’ and you know you are back eating right again” ~ your author

After you give up meat and then eat it again, it does taste different. Personally, I don’t like the taste of chicken anymore. I used to BBQ it a lot for her, but I haven’t had any ‘special requests’ lately.

We even bought a new BBQ from Home DepotⓇ recently and only used it once to make my wife shish kabobs. I had a vegetable shish kabob. They taste pretty darned good to me! Onion, red bell pepper, pineapple, mushrooms, yum…

‘Her daughter was supposed to visit from out of state and I was to cook her my famous chicken she used to love, but it didn’t happen. You know kids, all of a sudden, left turn in the middle of the stream! So what the heck did I buy a new BBQ for? It’s collecting a lot of dust’ ~ your author

It was a propane BBQ and I had to change the orifices for natural gas. I didn’t want to keep filling those tanks up, because I had a gas outlet in back of my fireplace on the patio deck. You know, when you are in the middle of the BBQ and you hope the propane tank has enough gas in it to finish cooking and then at the last minute before it’s done, it fizzles out! I don’t know about you, but those propane tanks always let me down!

Anyway, I had to ‘bore out’ the propane orifices on the new BBQ the same dimension as the old gas BBQ orifices, because it didn’t allow enough natural gas out of the burners to cook hot enough. Now, it works  great on natural gas (not that you wanted to know all the details.) Unfortunately, we don’t use it… I might as well turn it into a hood ornament on my pickup truck! Maybe, I will!

Note- before you change your diet consult your doctor.
