The Changing Taste Buds

What the heck is going on with me? For over 2 years I have enjoyed foods that I really don't want right now. The first one I realized I didn't want was Stevia, then tea. I have tried it with raw cane sugar and don't even like that. Soon I found myself not even wanting my favorite frozen Blueberries.
Unfortunately want I am doing it eating BREAD, it is sprouted Whole Wheat but it is still BREAD. I had some Irish Soda Bread, Scones, etc, etc, all supposed to be Whole Wheat.
My most recent no no, I am not enjoying my usual huge servings of veggies. In fact I haven't had any in weeks.
I do still manage to get my seed breakfast most days. I sometimes have eggs with, yep, BREAD.
I am having a hard time getting back into good Calorie Restriction. Every morning I have the same talk with myself. "Do it right today". I did manage a no chocolate day yesterday and feel quite good about it today. I am not back using the scale everyday.
What the heck is my reason now? I am not depressed, can't use that one.
My taste buds have changed.
This has happened to me many times before. When I was obese it happened more often. I am not wanting lots of the crap I used to eat, ice cream, wine, pasta to name a few. So today I am going to really try to get myself back weighing and measuring and recording my food.
I just have too.
Damn this coffee tastes good. Yikes, I haven't had coffee in over 2 years either.
I want a Skinny Latte so bad. Good thing I am stuck here all day designing a new Website. Keeps me from poison.

I do that, too. I don't know if its changing taste buds or just getting burned out. I tend to eat the same things over and over, then after a while I can't stand them anymore. It cycles back around though and they'll be good again. Right now, I'm totally immersed in yogurt, fresh spinach, salsa, grilled chicken, and tortillas. I eat those things EVERY DAY! A couple of months ago, it was spring mix lettuce, cucumbers, blueberries, and cottage cheese and I don't want anything to do with those foods now. LOL I'm still doing just fine with my weight loss...40 pounds so far!

Best of Luck and Health!

Dania,
Today was just awful, again.
I ate way to much sugar and skipped dinner. What is with that?
I have gained 2 pounds. Grr
This has got to end.
So glad you are doing great with the weight loss. Good job!!

But you get to be thin fit and fabulous and an inspiration to all the rest of us. I watched your victory video again for the first time in months and it still blows me away. Sorry to hear about your cat passing. we went through that with our dog going on 2 years ago and it broke our hearts. we feel for you. Taht broccoli looks really good.
