Accountability and goals for this week

Friday, October 28, 2011

I just want to thank everyone who left me such wonderful supportive comments. I so appreciate and need the encouragement. It seems each day I have to work to over come my cravings and binge-eating. I can honestly say, although my eating is not as clean as I would like it and at times I still feel out of control, with the help I have received here I can pull myself back from the edge.

Each day I learn something else about healthy eating and making myself truly accountable for what I put in my body. I still have far to go as evidence by my food log, but I'm moving forward at least. I have also decided to set weekly goals for myself so I can keep them in to forefront of my head.

This weeks food goals:
1) Eat eggs for breakfast every other day.
2) Go three days in a row without eating chocolate (Mon, Tues, Weds)
3) Drink 2 liters of water
4) track food on Weds and weekends (it's hard to make the time when i'm home but I must)

    It helped me a lot to keep some sweet snacks around that don't have enough calories to worry about no matter how much of them you eat. Grapes and grape tomatoes are two of my favorites. It's like getting to eat candy, but grapes are only 2.5 calories each, and grape tomatoes are only 2 each.

    After a couple of months eating healthier foods (complete meals, not diet meals), I found that the urge to snack gradually started to disappear. I used to snack constantly, but that was because I wasn't getting enough nutrition in meals, so my body stayed hungry. It took a while to mentally break that habit even when I wasn't really hungry.

    I'm pround to say that I have three bags of chocolate chip cookies that my wife bought just before we started losing weight which as still in the pantry, unopened. :-D
