eating

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Hi, I need to say, January 09, I weighed 210 this is the most I have weighed. I lost 18 pounds and seen 192. I really worked on eating right, and making healthy meals for myself and my Husband. I slowly got off my eating schedule, stopped logging my meals, and slowly the pounds come back, I seen 199 pounds. I have started a new 1400 calorie diet, started day after Thanksgiving 2009. I lost 1 pound a week, which is exciting to see the pounds go down, but it is slow going, and really hard to keep going this slow. I can see 195 on the scale this is great, but yes, the Holidays, it is so hard for me to not eat the big Holiday Meals we prepare in our Family. Since mom's passing, I cook all Holiday meals, so the food is so good, it is so hard to not eat. And the desserts are always to die for, and I do not want to die from being over weight. I stopped my 1400 calorie diet on Christmas Day, and for the New Year Holiday, I know I have eaten so terrible, not sure if there is a chance to go back and start all over, I guess. I know for sure I have gained back the five pounds I lost, eating very little. I hope for another chance to get my eating habits under control, it has been a battle for almost 15 years.
Until next time, I need to talk about how I got to this weight, and if I really think I can loose the weight.

    I don't know how you gained your weight, but I have always gained when when we have had a death in the family. The emotional stressors send me right into the old habit of comforting myself with food.

My new approach is to look at food as an adventure. There are so many healthy foods I haven't tried so I have decided to make it an exploratory adventure. I am going to be the female Indiana Jones of cuisine in my household. :-) I have decided to try new foods, like quinoa and buckwheat among others. I am going to cook quinoa instead of rice and buckwheat instead of oatmeal. My crock pot is my friend, too. I can cook the whole grains like steel cut oats and bulgur wheat for breakfast by cooking it overnight on low. The whole grains keep you full and satisfied longer. You can add a bit of sugar mixed with Splenda and lots of spice to make an easy breakfast for the whole family.
