Food issue

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

I have found that my weight loss is stalling and my food habits have changed mildly. I am eating some bread and want more because of this. Crackers, 1/2 pita, 1 slice of toast, and last night cereal before bed. I got in bed earlier but still had a snack before I even thought. Yes, its been 4 hours since I ate but I need to choose better if I am actually hungry and not carbs. So I will begin my food diary again and look for trends of food choices and loss and food choices and stalling. I am working out more and need appropriate calories but maybe not so many bananas in shakes or bready things particularly.

My big confession is I have eaten cherry licorice. At first just one or two strands. I had some hidden in my sewing room. Two nights ago I got about 6 strands and it made me hot and uncomfortable but not sick. I am posting it to break the secrete and make myself face it. Food choices matter!!!!!! My wants began with buying the first sugar licorice. I have opened the third bag that I ate too much from it, and it is now in the trash. NO MORE SUGAR for me! Please don't judge we all have to face food things at some point, this is one of those times for me. It may not bother someone else's journey but it is mine.

I have also have had indigestion in the evenings this past week sitting here thinking about this. I have taken pepcid two times and have not needed it for months. I wonder if the bready things are actually causing this. I will have to let my diary help me with this since the licorice is gone.

So here's to detoxing the bready/licorice/sugary things and getting them out of my body.

    I can eat sugar now, but it brings grumbles of all my inflammatory issues back, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, etc. I have no energy when I exercise after eating sugar.
    So I have to do the same thing- NO SUGAR!
    (visited my mom, and had choc chip cookies, 4 in a row, two tsp of sugar in my tea, ice cream, sodas etc. This just showed me again that it is NOT who I want to be and not what I want to feel like!)
    Good for you!

    No judgment here. Would it surprise you to know, I eat cookies, chips, crackers, cake, ice cream and even chocolate? I drink alcohol. The difference is, I do those things in moderation. I don't do them every day.

    You can not be expected to stop living. The important thing is... if you want a small amount of a "bad" food (which I hate to even classify foods as "bad") plan for it. Plan for a small amount of XYZ into your day. That is what I do, and I have lost more than half of my body weight.

    Not all carbs are evil. Stick to whole grains. Keep an accurate count of your calories, carbs, protein and fats.

    You can do it!

    I am not a total "no carb" person, but I do not do a lot of bread. I skip the bread basket at restaurants and do not keep it at home. Carbs tend to make me want to eat more and make me crave food. So, I tend to avoid processed carbs and sugars. Good luck!
