Surprised yet not...

Thursday, April 02, 2009

I gave up on the "healthy" eating two days ago. I got rid of the cheesecake by eating it. I also bought cookies last Sunday and made homemade pizza and a I thought I had control over the issue. My mother-in-law brought over the cheesecake not knowing I was limiting my sweets. Not her fault that I ate the three pieces in two nights. I also ate the tray of cookies as of yesterday morning. I usually stay between 124 and 121 and I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 125.5. Wow what a wakeup call. I also received my reminder that it was time to have my doctor visit to recheck my cholesterol. This is the reason for my change in eating. The weight loss is a plus. So I have to remember I want to see my three year old grow up. I quit smoking. I'll be damned if I don't try my best to eat better.

Well if anyone reads this. I would welcome comments. I feel the sugar is an addiction. I am stressed with family issues right now, but I will not use this as an excuse. I'm rambling. More later.....

    Hang in there, Paulamarie, you can do this. ^_^ I have a few snacks that I have to keep smalls stashes of in my house and car and work and boyfriend's place 'cause... I'll just eat 'em all. I've found that eating sweet fruits during the day helps and I have a chocolate high protein bar that I really like that I only eat when I come home after a run - I look forward to my treat so much I'm actually running almost every day. :D

    There are a couple of treats that're low calories but still sweet and delicious - sugar free chocolate pudding and sugar-free jello are my favourites. And I probably would've have made it through hte first week without my No-Sugar-Added Fudgesicles. At only 40 calories a piece (and some calcium), the were a delicious treat I could have virtually as often as I wanted.

    The first few weeks are hardest, after that your taste buds start to shift. I used to drink a couple litres of diet cokes a day and after two weeks of water only, I tried to take a sip and it tasted really, really thick and too sweet. If you can get through the first steps it gets easier. ^_^
