Diet issues

Friday, October 12, 2012

Not only did I gain 2 lbs overnight, after eating Cocoa Puffs, and bologna sandwiches, but now I am hungry. I cooked up a lb of chicken tenderloins, and mixed them with a 14.5 oz can of tomatoes. The problem was, I ate it for lunch, and now I am waiting for another lb to thaw, so I can add some mushrooms, and onions, for dinner. Hopefully before midnight.

I came home just now, but stopped to see my brother at the pizzeria, and for some reason I bought a 20 oz wild cherry Pepsi. So now I have it in my house, and trying to drink water, and ignore it. I have no idea why I bought it, and I don't want to waste it.. my brother will drink it. I weighed in again, and down to 231 even, which will be a new low if I stay there by tomorrow morning, and avoid drinking this pop.

I know that if I just stick to low carb, my hunger will disappear by tomorrow night. So far, I have avoided a cheat, which is what I was planning. At least I didn't stop for fast food, or snacks, and now I would have to walk to the store, which isn't going to happen. It's 46 degrees outside, and the store is over a mile away. Now I just need to avoid drinking the pop. So I am chugging water. Wish me luck.

    I'm reading "THE SUGAR FIX" by Richard Johnson M.D. and recommend his lecture on YOUTUBE.

Also, watch Robert Lustig M.D's "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY" series on YouTube. I have GOUT and I have had to find the answer to stopping it as the pain was to much for me at night. My military doctor just brushed me off about it so I've had to look for answers for myself. These two have really helped me.

    Stay strong and motivated. Think about all the things you have accomplished so far - things you don't want to throw away for an impulse buy. Kick temptation in the teeth. emoticon You can do it!

I know you don't want to waste it, but it might be better to pour it out or put it in the freezer to keep yourself from drinking it.
