Fighting Myrtle, Day 2
Saturday, November 10, 2012
Myrtle is telling me evil things too... She's telling me to give up this morning, already. Yesterday's weight: 243.5... yesterday I ate 1390 calories and drank 88 oz of water, but I did not exercise. This morning, I stepped on the scales and I'm at 245. Why? I did not eat enough to gain a pound and a half, and I weighed after going to the bathroom about a dozen times throughout the night! Myrtle is yelling in my head... SEE? SEE? I told you this was all worthless and that you were wasting your time. You will never lose weight again, you will never be thinner. Give it up, eat what you want today... Doesn't pizza sound good???? Don't you want some ice cream after that... we can watch movies and eat cookies and ice cream, because that's what you like... you can't do this. Give it up.
I'm fighting her. It's hard... but I'm doing it. I'm not giving up.
The gain... fluctuations... it's water weight again.
The food... Early this morning I had a cup of coffee with cream and a banana for breakfast. We just went and picked a lot of greens from the garden for dinner today... and a few radishes. I've eaten two of the radishes... and I ate an apple. I'm good for a while now.
This afternoon we're baking a ham and making green beans and taters and rolls and of course those greens. I'm going to stick to serving sizes (measured!) and ... gosh... even right now Myrtle is saying we can eat a HUGE plateful of that good stuff. But NO. I will not give in to Myrtle.!
I do have plans for today... have several errands to run: picking up my grandmother's dresser from my mom's former home (she just moved), getting a couple things from a couple stores and shopping for things for our Operation Christmas Child boxes... then later ...that good dinner. Tonight will probably be leftovers. (I'm going to plan what I can eat to keep it around 1200 cals) and a movie with the family. I do have a busy day ahead... and Myrtle is not invited. :)
Shut up, Myrtle!
