Curse you french fries!!!

Monday, March 09, 2009

Well...actually I didn't have very many french fries. I did, however, have a ridiculous amount of fast food because we ran out of groceries and I've had a headache all day, so I didn't feel up to grocery shopping and cooking anyway. I'm still close to my calorie range, though, so that's good. If only my husband could cook! I swear he could screw up tuna helper >.<

can't give up

Thursday, March 05, 2009

I keep failing, but at least I keep trying. I have fast food less than once a week now, no fried food at home, etc. AND I am now off the antidepressant that was causing some of my weight gain, but still not a bit of progress. The thing I hate most - exercise - is the only thing that will help. I'm going to try yet again. If I could see the slightest bit of progress, it would help motivate me. I went to the gym the other day and it felt soooo good - until the next day, when my feet hurt so bad I could hardly walk. And since both my husband and I are still unemployed, I can't afford the $120 running shoes my doctor told me I needed. Of course, if I did have $120, I probably wouldn't spend it on the shoes anyway ^^

The last time I entered my weight, I think about three months ago, I was 285. Now I'm 308. Just by being sedentary. I am ashamed to go out in public looking like this. I don't want my old friends to see how I look now. I don't want to meet new friends because I know they will judge me on how I look whether they mean to or not, and I don't want this disgusting blob to be their first impression. It seems so hopeless, like I will never be able to lose as much weight as I need to to look like a human again. But what other choice do I have? If I give up, I'll just be miserable and friendless.

    You CAN do it! Keep logging in to SP, read some motivational articles...anything it takes. I'm at a stand-still but hoping by posting, reading, and tracking, I can get on the whole healthy track :) Good luck and remember....one day at a time! Keep trying like you are and the results will come!

No more fast food torture!

Thursday, October 23, 2008

I finally convinced my husband that eating fast food in front of me was extremely cruel and was sabotaging my diet. It only took crying for half an hour. "It doesn't hurt you to not eat a cheeseburger," he said. I just about kicked him in the nuts =P

    Fast food is my weakness. Expecally at work, I'm tempted to eat a whole day's worth of calories. I've found that if I go online and look at calories of food ofered at an establishment I can get my fast food fix for the amount of calories I'm willing to eat. Ex. I really wanted to go to buger king the other day, so I got online and found that if I got a spicy chicken sandwich with no sauce and ate a value rings with ketchup I could get out of there for $2 and about 500 calories. Yes I sacrificed volume but I got my fried fix. I hope my tip helps you to not deny yourself while watching your calories. Good luck.

    Hi!
When I first found out I had to go wheat free(glutenfree) I had just got a book called CHEW ON THIS. I hadnt started reading it yet, but did shorty thereafter! and BOY was that a HUGE help! It made it SO easy for me to NOT even want fastfood! Its a great read, short(kinda) and took me 2 days to read it.. not sure if your a big reader or not, but I suggest reading that book(foir the sake of your hubbys nuts!lol)and not only will you be soo informed about whats actually in that crap(fastfood) but it will help your diet TREMONDOSLY! kid ya not! It helped me deal with the fact that I cant eat it anymore and made it soo much eaiser to pass it up. I had no choice, but it made it a breeze to get over wanting it. And belive me, 2 cheeseburgers, frie and oh yeah the good ol DIET coke, was my fav!!!!!
Just a suggestion I tell everyone who is trying to loose weight and get healthy and struggles with fast food.
Happy Friday!!!
:)

Sleep? What's that?

Friday, October 03, 2008

ARGH!

My husband and I are both having trouble with our CPAP masks hurting, so last night we switched with each other. It worked out surprisingly well. My sleep schedule is SO screwed up right now though. I'm getting up at like 1:30 in the afternoon, exercising around 10pm after he goes to bed, and getting to bed myself at around 2am. I'm trying to work towards a more normal schedule. Meh. I guess it's just as well. It makes me wish I had an elliptical or something to use while watching TV during the day. But even if I could afford one, there is absolutely no room for it in the apartment! I've tried doing things like leg-lifts while watching, but I get distracted too easily.

  


Total = Cinnamon Toast Crunch?!

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Total came out with an awesome new variety that is very similar to Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It's not quite as lightly crispy, and there's a lot less sugar dumped on it, but it tastes almost as good and still has 100% of your daily vitamins. Since this is about the only way I can get said vitamins, I am THRILLED. It also makes a great snack!

In other news, I am addicted to apples!

And in still other news, it turns out that king crab legs not only have less cholesterol than shrimp, but also less than beef or even chicken! Provided you have $25 for a meal, of course.....

    I just tried the Total Cinnamon as well and I LOVED IT! I agree, not quite as good as the CTC, but SO much better for you!

YUM!
