I went 22 days without eating crappy food. In those days, I felt better. I hadn't been sick to my stomach after eating. I felt less depressed. I felt healthier.
Then I fell of the wagon. I didn't break my no McDonalds or Burger King rule, but I had a cheeseburger and fries from Steak and Shake. I thought it wouldn't be too bad since they don't put sugar in their fries or ammonia in the burgers.
Holy hell was I wrong.
Don't get me wrong, it tasted pretty yummy, but I knew it was a mistake within 20 minutes. The horrible stomach pains were back. I was sick all night. Also, not sure if it was a coincidence or not, but I had my first panic attack in a few weeks.
After feeling better for weeks this was a wake up call. It's not even about losing weight anymore (though I need to). It's about feeling better.
So it's back on the wagon for me. And Steak and Shake is added to the list of places I am not going to eat.
