I have been looking over my diet diaries trying to figure out where I go wrong. I have lost 100's of pounds and have put them back on. I can lose like crazy and then I don't maintain. All I could gather from my research is that I get confident and start eating sweets. I will have a piece of this one day and in a couple of days I have a little more and then next thing you know I am on a binge and don't care until I have all the weight back on. Its like my brain does not work like it is suppose to. I have good intentions but when I am eating sweets I do not care about eating healthy in fact I want more fat and salt, more carbs. I can not get satisfied. I will eat until I am sick. I talked to my husband this morning for awhile and he agreed with my findings. I told him I knew I needed to never eat sweets again. If I wanted something sweet eat fruit or a little honey. For some reason honey does not trigger anything wild.
I could not make myself say I would not eat sweets again. I did not want to give up sweets.
How could I not eat sweets. They made me feel good! Made me feel good, who am I kidding I get angry and nervous and I want a whole bag of candy or 1/2 of a pie or a quart of ice cream.
I asked my husband what did I want more candy or to get in my clothes, the smaller ones, to feel good and be healthy. I was acting like I was an addict. I smoked three to four packs of cigarettes for a long time and I laid them down and never looked back. You could not pay me to smoke or even get around smoke. How can I not walk away from sweets. Well, I finally told my husband I was walking away from sweets. I was laying them down to never pick up again. Do you know I got short of breath, nervous, anxiety, and scared to death. No sweets what would happen to me. Wow!! What a wake up call. This is going to be an interesting trip.

Thursday is weigh in day and I lost another five pounds. Great!! I have lost 15 so far.
It feels so good when you can look over the week and know you have done everything you know to do and get a good reading on the scales. I also know if I had not lost any I knew I had lost some somewhere, my clothes are looser. I have to eat healthy no matter what, whether I lose or just stay where I am for awhile. You can't make me believe me going from Lord knows how many calories to 1200-1500 I won't eventually lose weight. I was eating an awful lot of calories to get this big. I know I didn't gain it from green drinks and vegetables. You know this is kind of funny. If I drink a green drink for one of my meals I lose real good. I am eating the same amount of calories. I wonder what the chemical situation is or is it. Anyway I do love a green drink. My favorite one, that I usually drink is 1 froze banana, 1small apple, I cup of chocolate or vanilla almond milk, 1 cup of kale and 1/2 cup of spinach, blend it up and it is so good. I tried drinking three or four a day. You know making all kinds of different ones.
But I like to chew too much. I can go one or even two sometimes but I must have one meal I can chew. I love my beans and rice. Well as my grandmother use to say I'm pleased as punch about myself today. I hope if anyone reads this their program is going great also.
Thank you all for responding to my blogs it makes you feel like all of us are on the same journey helping each other, and that we care.

We took the day off and drove down to the coast. I fixed our lunch, supper and snacks.
I did not want us to go out to eat today. I want to fix our meals as much as I can. When I have to plan out our meals, write down the calories for both of us and then cook them I have a tendency to make wise choices and get the most for our calories. My husband loves for me to say you have to have more snacks, don't you want some popcorn or nuts or sometimes both. He is eating about 1700 calories and I like to make sure his eyes are satisfied with lots of food. If I give him high calories and little food he always feels hungry. I am the same way.
I think that's why I love stir fry so much, you get a big plate of vegetables with a little rice and a little piece of chicken. You think I will never eat all this but you do and in a little while you are empty again. We really enjoy eating beans, rice, vegetables, sweet potatoes, little new potatoes. I don't see why we get off track and eat fast food and junk we feel so much better eating healthy. I'm trying to think up all kinds of new foods we might like to try and take some of the old recipes and turn them into healthly. I'm working on making us a taco salad sometimes this week. I thought of using greek yogurt instead of sour cream and I am making my own soft shell tacos in the oven. It should crisp it up. I also got some packages of guamole for 100 calories. I have lean ground beef, about 96 percent lean and everything else. Oh on our trip I found some small taco pan to put the tacos in to bake. All of the fixings should be about 500 calories. That will make a meal. I'll put it through Spark before we eat it to make sure of the calories. I am looking forward to weighing thursday. I am on my way to health and happiness.
