Calorie Debt

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

It's going on 10:30. I'm hungry. All I want to do is ravage my pantry for chips, crackers, or cookies!!! I already had a granola bar to quell the thoughts of salty, sugary goodness, but to no avail. I still find myself sitting here thinking about food. GGGRRRR.....

As much as I can tell myself that I don't need the extra calories or that I should just go to bed, I find myself sitting here contemplating blowing my whole day on a binge of yumminess. :(

Here is where I need to step it up. I need to hold tight and think skinny. Once I begin to go downhill, I tumble full force down and down until I've eaten so many calories I don't even want to count. Ultimately, the bad day becomes a bad rest of the week and I will regain any good I may have done so far. It's Wednesday night....almost Thursday. I can do this!!! I have lost 3lbs this week and despite the fact that the pantry is calling me to break into my husband's stash of chips and oroes, I will not! I am taking control of the situation and not giving in and feeling like a failure. I'll take hungry over that!

I guess all I needed was to talk it out with myself. I'm not going to give in. I'm going to take a shower and go to bed. Tomorrow is a new day and I don't want to already be in calorie debt for a lack of judgment I may make tonight.

    Good job! Instead of going to the pantry & stuffing, you journaled. That's awesome & a great example to put forth. I hope you were able to hold on after journaling & not give in to the urges. I know it's very difficult. The last couple of nights I have found myself totally ravenous around that same time of night. I've been able to stick through it. Wondering if I'm getting enough calories during the day.

Great blog!

    Thanks for the positive words. It has been challenging staring down the cookies and snacks that are out of bounds for me. Problem is my husband is trying to gain weight and he has a naturally very thin frame, so gaining is hard for him. Those foods that I am not allowing myself to eat are exactly what he needs. Eek! Maybe I can have him put them up in the cabinet on a high shelf so I don't have to see them all the time. Thanks again.

    Not only can you do it but you've reached out to one of your best supports - SP. My husband also has his stash but he's healthy and fit. He works out on the job, partakes of my healthy cooking, and is blessed with a great metabolism. As with many things in our life together we've learned balance. Maybe DH has to find a more effective stash place until you've found your passion for healthy you! All the best in your proceedings. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon It seems you already have it under control.

Have you tried bringing your hubby on board? If there are no snacks, no temptation, it is going to become easier for you. Maybe if he exercises with you, he'll be motivated and not buy the snacks at all.

Good luck. Stay strong. I know this is difficult but remember the results are well worth it! Keep us posted
