Day 10

Friday, July 22, 2011

Okay so I've lost a little bit of the regained weight but not all of it. Yesterdays eating was not at all good. I found myself starving around 8 and realized I had only had a yogurt for breakfast, 10 chicken nuggets for lunch (tyson) and one of those fruit pies for a snack. I ended up making pasta for dinner with little bits of sausage. It was only enough for 6 servings split between 5 of us and we still have a pot of it left (what a waste) and only 4 sausages in the package. I'm guessing I had about half a sausage and about 1.5 cups of pasta...2 tops. But, while waiting for dinner to cook up I had a Klondike bar...*sigh*. I really need to get the eating in check and get off the "bad" food kick that I was trying so hard to do just last week.

    I think I'm in the same boat as you, having to retrain myself and my body to eat healthier and appropriate portions. Back in May I got sick with pneumonia and was sick for 3.5 weeks. In that time I went UNDERweight, so when my appetite came back I allowed myself to eat extra in order to get that weight back.

    Well, my weight came back but my eating hasn't changed. It hasn't helped that I recently baked a bunch of cookies and it seems like I'm the only one eating them. My downfall has been my evening snacking. Once I allow myself one snack, it's quickly followed by another and another and... Well, you get the idea. :)

    Try this. It's been working for me the last few days. Take your daily calorie goal and divide it by 4. Try to eat that many calories at each meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and for your total snacking (perhaps mid-morning and mid-afternoon, or whenever you find yourself craving a snack). In this way, you're satisfying your body almost continuously but still keeping from overeating.

    Also, look for foods that will fill you up without too many calories. A cup of strawberries or diced watermelon is only 50 calories. A serving of baby-cut carrots (3 oz or 85 g) is only 28 calories... but that's a lot of carrots! One thing that also helped me was to never eat a "naked carb"... always put some protein with it. Half an apple, sliced into wedges, eaten with some peanut butter, is an excellent option.

    I know you can do it! emoticon
