Well i managed to gain 5 pounds over the weekend. So I am officially declaring pizza a bad food. I did track my pizza, had a total of 3 slices. I was only slightly over my calories for saturday with the pizza. I even worked out on sunday but still managed to go up from 215.5 to 220. I am honestly starting to think I need to see a doctor about my thyroid levels and maybe see if they can help me lose weight somehow.
In the interim, I am actually going to stop eating so much bread. I think that might be my main issues. I hadn't really eaten that much bread back at "home" in Nevada. I was often quite good with rice and such and my main bread was a pita every so often and the occasional sandwich. I think I have bread with every meal here. Sadly, I like bread. So this morning I didn't have my usual English Muffin and had eggs with spinach.
I have one pita left, so I will enjoy that with dinner tonight with my Spark People Sloppy joes i made last night.
My husband really enjoys his bread as well. I don't think he will give up bread. He's lost about 13 pounds since my arrival. Not very fair, but I cook healthy meals and he eats less processed and prepared type meals.
My other confessed sin is Oreos. I have eaten more than I have tracked but I have at least tracked my oreo intake... I am going to go back to my refusal of having junk in the house. At least of my own volition. I know better than to have junky foods at the ready. I don't know why I have slipped. But even with the oreoes, I was still at 215.... I am not sure what happened this weekend that made me shoot up so much in 2 days. I was 219 this morning, but still! My frustration is building. I still do my work outs 4 times a week on the elliptical at least 30 minutes; I've been adding Pilates to strengthen my muscles in my back and bottom. My chiropractor has noticed my pelvis and spine are improving. I just wish the scale, clothes, and overall feeling inside was better...
I just wish I knew what really was wrong with me. If there is something psychological, what is it?? if it's physical, i need to get that under some control. I know my husband loves me and thinks i'm a sexy woman even at this weight. I just want to do it for me so I can maintain a better image of myself, keep my health in check and not have to stare at my double chin. :( (I swear it's getting bigger!)
On another note: I have found a lovely trail to hike down near the town I live. I am still attempting to make my way the whole loop, as it's about 7.6Km, and some of the trail is not well marked. So i'm trying to explore a little further each time. So far I have only gone down the trail twice, but i have learned I went the wrong way the second time! So I have an idea of where i need to be next trip! Plus, I got some great pictures of the Ruins of the palace there.
Sorry for the whine. I just thought getting it down on some form of physical diary type thing might help my though processes. Maybe this is why blogs were really invented! A way to just keep track of one's thoughts. Today will be eating better, no bread except for a pita bread, and a nice walk in town (plus elliptical later before dinner). Thanks
