Somehow, I gained a pound between yesterday and today. I didn't really stick to my diet, but I know it shouldn't just show up right away like that. From what I've read on this website, I guess it must be water retention. Grr!
I turned off my meal plans on the nutrition tracker because it was taking entirely too long to prepare those meals, plus the calorie balance was way off. I mean, is it really healthy to eat double the calories you ate for breakfast for lunch?! I think its better to try to eat around four hundred calories per meal. I'm measuring my portion sizes alright, though. I'm still eating more than one serving of some things, though!
Another problem I'm facing is lack of support from my live-in boyfriend. He is almost as overweight as I am, but he won't weigh himself. I don't know how much he really weighs, but his waist size is definitely a serious risk. I'm concerned about his health as well as mine, but he sees no need to alter the same eating patterns he's had for his whole life. So, I have all these foods in my cupboards and fridge that I know I shouldn't eat. The only way I can really be sure that I don't eat these things is to not have them, but my boyfriend doesn't want to eat what I eat. Not only do I have to resist eating these things, I also have to watch him eat them and smell them. I'm not very good at fighting temptation. His solution? Tell me, "No! You can't have any!" That's great. I end up feeling like its not fair that he gets to eat some and I don't. I don't know what to do about it; I guess I'll just keep fighting myself to be healthy. I want to be healthy and not restricted by my fitness level or weight.
