Obsession for the forces of good

Is it possible to turn my obsessiveness into a force of good? Can I convince myself to obsess over food and exercise in such a way that I can FINALLY lose weight?

I look in the mirror and I get depressed. I lose a little weight, I gain it back. I can't seem to find time to exercise without giving everything else up. I could walk at lunch again, which was a really productive thing once upon a time, but with needing to put in 45 hrs a week, minimum, in order to get this stuff done, that just isn't going to happen right now. I need to cram work time into the office time... so I eat at my desk and just deal.

Cooking would help. Just paying attention to what I eat and when I eat it. Keeping the kitchen spotless so it attracts my attention. Food shopping on a more normal basis than $20 every day or so (reconciling the bills for the past month was an eye opener with regards to bad food shopping habits). Menu planning.

I can't seem to figure out how other people do it. And they say it's so easy to come home, get a meal on the table, and have the kids and everyone else all sit down at the same time to eat. Hells, I don't even have a table available that we can all fit at.

Yeah, I'm grousing. I'm eating my lemon yoghurt with cereal and I have a cup of decaf coffee mixed with sugar free cocoa (a treat this morning). And there's the fudge in the fridge that I have to pretend isn't there and hope everyone else eats it. *fingers crossed* If I send out that email, it should go. And maybe I can have one piece later today. When the chocolate fit is upon me.

Nnnggghhh... Fudge. Looks like a good recipe, one which doesn't require an oven. Good. *smile*

That's my eating tip, by the way - move to a one-room apartment in Japan, reduce yourself to one burner, a rice cooker and a microwave. You wind up doing small and simple. Or giant stir-fries, or possibly being so lazy that you just have rice and tuna or go to one of the millions of udon, ramen or yakiniku places....

Hmmm... losing weight in Japan might not be as easy as I thought. Probably not much easier than quitting smoking (still $2.50 a pack here, folks!)....

Yeah, the availability of Japanese takeout would be a definite downfall. *grins* (Gods how I love udon noodles... and whatever those wheat noodles are that my brain is blanking on just now).

Although I have considered doing the "Survivor" diet... a bowl of rice three times a day with the occassional fish and broth and water to supplement... it always works so well for them. *wry smiles*

My problem is stress = eating... and I'm just WAY too stressed...
