Sneaky preservatives, and a food hangover.

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I feel like crap today. I ate out with my family yesterday at the Chinese buffet. I made what I thought was great food choices. I had hibachi with raw meat and veggies, and they grilled it up. I picked the sauce that had no sugar in it, but I totally forgot about MSG. I had this horrible headache at the base of my skull within a half hour of eating there. Today I feel run down , and BLAH. I have never had a problem with MSG before, but I guess when your body is used to being poison free it reacts to everything.

I started eating Paleo to free me from my unhealthy relationship with food ( aka I hated it and didn't like to eat for fear of gaining weight if I chose the wrong foods) I have enjoyed the freedom of just eating, and not having to read labels, or worry about it making me fat. No more Chinese unless I make it myself.

People are noticing and commenting on my weight loss, which I love, but I am starting to get those comments of- I look great I shouldn't lose anymore weight. It frustrates me so much when people say that. Not sure if they really believe that or if they are saying it because they think it is what I want to hear. Or the comments of are you trying to get back to your high school weight or something? Like this is something extreme. Perhaps it is because the people in my life right now have never seen me at a normal weight. When I was 9 months pregnant with my first child I weighed 128 lbs. 3 pounds more than I am now, and I had another person inside me!!!!!! My goals are less about weight and more about how I look naked,how I feel, My BMI, and body fat testing results. My goal is 110-115 for now, but if I keep eating healthy and working out and more come off after that then I will listen to my body.

    Great job on your journey! It is amazing how much junk food really impacts how you feel. I don't always remember this fact until it is too late.... emoticon

    Wow I had no idea food can affect you so much when you go so long without it. Well lesson learned I'm guessing? lol.
    Congratulations on your weight loss, by the way. You're doing fantastic... keep up the great work.
