Beached Whale Syndrome

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Hi Sparkers

I went to a friend's 75th birthday party today.
Decided before going I was going to go off KETO diet and enjoy some of the foods I haven't had since December.
I did just that!
Enjoyed fatty deli meats and imported cheeses that were delightful!
Glopped some mayonnaise on and ate several olives.
Spotted the mixed nuts and it was love at first sight. Ate lots!
Then came the birthday cake. Just had a few small bites with no icing.

This had been planned in advance and I consumed 2,600 calories today.
Do I feel guilty? Not at all! It was so good at the time.

It is about 7 pm and, yes, I do feel like a beached whale.
I am bloated and way beyond full!

I now have a renewed sense of how good low carbing really feels.

Tomorrow is my restart day for doing some KETOing and looking forward to it!

Have a great nite, Sparkers!

    All things considered, not a bad splurge!

When you overdo low carb foods your stomach really does feel packed solid for a few hours!

    This was a great idea we need to allow a time here and there for not worrying about what we eat.

    Excellent! Food is not the enemy...but I really feel that guilt is.

    emoticon and I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself!

I too ate some food today that I don't normally eat and I don't feel any regret. I knew I would indulge in my cousin's award winning smoked potato salad and I enjoyed every bit of it. It was a wedding and it was a really fun day.

GREAT job veg!

    A big day like that would have made me feel like a beached whale, too. Glad you enjoyed the day.

    LOL!! Most of the things you mentioned are allowed on my diet- I would have had the meat. cheese, olives, and nuts and been a happy camper.

    I think our body needs that binge once in a while. Your calorie count could have been much higher. You had it planned. It was a day off. The deal is tomorrow you go back to eating healthier foods and the lesson is to learn how to incorporate those foods you ate into your diet occasionally. Moderation in choice and portion. Glad you had a great time at the party.

    I have managed to stay mostly antisocial for the last 16 days. I don't think I can hold out much longer.
