The Painful Truth about my Addiction to Bagels

Saturday, May 19, 2012

I seriously need to just accept the fact that bagels give me heartburn. Specifically Dunkin Donuts bagels, but that could just be because I eat them the most. I love bagels. I love cream cheese. I hate feeling this way. I think this morning was my last Dunkin Bagel.

Sometimes I have them at home. Why is it that a nice bag of ShopRite bagels costs me $1.50, but if I want bagel THINS to cut down on the calories it's like a dollar or two more? Further proof that it takes money to lose weight. I finished my bag of big bagels, I purchased the wheat bagel thins, and now I will allow myself only one a week with a minimal amount of cream cheese, that I will begin measuring.

I consistantly am approximately 200 calories over my calorie count everyday. Try as I might, I can't seem to make that go down. Between moving in with my boyfriend and trying to find lower calorie meals that we can both enjoy, and being at an office job where I sit in a chair all day (not to mention the office goodies people always seem to bring in and I nearly ALWAYS turn down!) I am finding it damn near impossible to cut the calories down.

However, all of this weather is making me happy. I live close to a park. Yesterday on my lunch break I did go for a nice 10 minute walk. I hope to go on a much longer one today (hooray for un-busy weekends!). I have a Wii in my apartment... I really need to begin using my Just Dance 3 game more often. It's such fun! If I can't completely cut down on those extra 200 calories (although, again, I'm going to seriously continue to try) I may as well dance them off or at least enjoy an afternoon in the sun.

As for bagels smothered in cream cheese... goodbye for now.

    Hey there...does it help that you have had company all this week? I too have not been kind to myself. I have no idea why I ate everything I said I was going to control. Yesterday was chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans...I left a little of those on the plate to show I could leave something on my plate. LOL...
    Anyway, just like you, today I had a stern talking to myself...not scolding, but a self talk about you and my other buddies on this site. I went to the market and bought more fruits and veggies today than I have bought in the last six months. I promised I would be a strong buddy and I haven't lived up to my as of this's back to one step at a time, and one day at a time. We can do this! Have faith and believe in yourself...I believe in you.
