Sugar poisoning

Tuesday, April 24, 2007

I've done it. I've eaten too much sugar and now I'm craving all things sweet. I even ate some old dried out coffeecake today at breakfast that wasn't even that good when it was fresh--but it is sweet and I wanted it BAD. Now, I wish I had been strong enough to back away from it. I feel bloated and have a terrible taste in my mouth. Time to go cold turkey on the sweets for a few days.

When I get home this evening I will throw the leftover sweets away. They'll be dried out and gross anyway, so no point in saving them any longer.

Off to fill up my water bottle and see if I can flush the sugar out.

    The first step is to admit you have a problem. ;-) Good for you for tossing that junk. Yeck. 180's, you'll be gone before we know it!

Off program

Monday, April 23, 2007

I've been off program for a couple of days now, but I am deciding I need to get back on the wagon now. I need to eat the lower-calorie leftovers from the weekend and leave the cake, ice cream, and macaroni salad alone. I've been eating strangely all day. No way to possibly track it so the calorie count for today is much lower than it should be, I'm sure.

I did exercise every day but Sunday. That's not unusual. I often take a day off over the weekend. Back to healthful eating again.

    I'm eating weird today, too. I'm just munchy. I might just go with it... I'm already over by 400 calories and I'm still hungry. Big bowl of airpopped and some water ought to fill me up for minimum damage.

I think sometimes it's okay to shake your body up a bit with some wacky calories - as long as you are back on healthy eating starting tomorrow! :-)

Check in as often as needed!

The scales caught up with me today and I got a loss of 1.5 pounds. Finally! I was afraid I had hit a dreaded plateau. This is good. This gets me past my mini-goal of losing 20 pounds on SP and it gets me within striking distance of hitting the 55-pound loss mark. That goal is about 1.5 pounds away now, and then the 180's are in sight. I'll need to come up with a bunch of goals for the 180's now.

I'm so happy with this. I love being able to buy normal sizes again.

I'm having such a good week, I decided to cheat and check the scale a day early. Not only did I not lose any week from last week, I in fact weighed slightly more than last Friday! The sound you heard was my bubble being burst. I think we can chalk this gain up to salt. I was ravenous last night and it was just K and me for supper so I fixed us a couple of hot dogs. I ate two, one with a bun and one without. And then I ate what was left of K's. Thought I was doing myself a big favor by skipping the bun and getting a little more protein. It occurred to me as I was cleaning up to check the calorie count on the package. Ahem! 170 calories for one! And the sodium is right up there, too. Guess I'll be checking out turkey dogs next time around.

I did throw away the fourth hot dog before I ate it. That's progress.

I did make ice cream again last night and had a small sample. Now desert for the weekend is in the bag and I can turn my attention towards cleaning the house and trying to figure out where to seat 25 people.

Since the scales were disappointing I took some measurements this morning. I don't do this often, but my hip measurement was down 1.5 inches from two months ago and everything else was pretty close to the same, so that made me feel good.

I'll post the "official" weight tomorrow as usual. I really want to get to 192 and achieve my next mini-goal of losing 20 pounds on SP.

    Fingers crossed! Fingers crossed.

Stoopid hot dogs.

About that ice cream....

Wednesday, April 18, 2007

Ok, yes, the accountability continues. I did eat some ice cream yesterday. Homemade strawberry ice cream for my daughter's confirmation party this weekend. I can't help it that I'm a good cook! I had to taste it and make sure it was OK to feed the masses, right? I sort of saved up for it and ate only vegetables for supper and still came in below my minimum calorie count.

And yes, I'll probably eat some that same ice cream this weekend! I'm going to make some vanilla ice cream tonight, too.

Otherwise things have been going well this week. I was able to do a twist move this morning that has long eluded me. The stomach is shrinking if I can hook my right elbow around the outside of my left knee, no?

    Whoa. Maybe I'm glad we don't live closer - your cooking would do me in! :-) But we're in the same boat. I way over did on thai food yesterday, and today I over did on whipping cream (don't ask) but I made up for it by being careful the rest of the day. Choices and consequences.

The deal is this... we have to be able to eat this way for the rest of our(hopefully very long) lives! And for me, that means I need thai food. And indian food. And your homemade ice cream. I need to figure out how to fit them in, along with all the healthy foods, and keep my caloriic reasonable to my expenditures.

You'll bounce back, J. Maybe stay away from the scale? I really think it's helping me, anyway.
