Sabotaging my own weight loss efforts.

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I was suppose to write a blog about others sabotaging my own weight loss efforts, but I can't think of anyone. So I am going to write about my own. Last night I was on some medication and I was so tired I made some Hamburger Helped. It came to about 500 calories and 44 protein as I ate two cups. I was with in my calories but on the higher end. Then I made SMORE, with out melting it. I have a swollen jaw so I only ate half of it. One cracker and a three piece of chocolate and a smore marshmellow, which is flat. I didn't need to eat that. I have corn on the cob, acorn squash, fresh green beans, peaches and banana's. The doctor put me on Valium for my swollen jaw.

It's kind of hard to eat with that. So I don't think the corn is a good idea. But I know it's only me who is sabotaging my own efforts. I know when i do it also. But like I read somewhere on someone's blog. Even if I do something wrong eating wise. I can always do better then next meal. So I try to tell my self that I need to eat later in the evening as I get hungry at night time unless I go to bed at nine pm.

I went camping over the past week for three days and every night I went to bed at nine or nine thirty. Well when i got home I was so tried at nine I started to go to bed at that time. No time to eat at night. time. But last night I stayed up till Eleven pm. and that's when I ate the SMORE. I have a BIG piece of Chocolate in my freezer. I can't seem to throw it away. I am just trying to keep it there to have a little piece of it every now and then. with a graham cracker and a marshmellow. I know graham crackers are essentially no calories and neither are marsh mellows. so it's only the little bit of chocolate I am eating. And it's the only treat besides Light Popcorn that I eat.

So if I can stay away from Starbuck's Mocha Frappachino's and other calorie laden foods, I will be okay. We can only look to ourselves in the end anyway. It's all up to us.

    Sorry you are having trouble with the swollen jaw. What is causing it? Are you taking anything for infection?
    I is great you are looking at self-sabotage. Sometimes we are in deniel of it. But you are facing it head on. I am proud of you. Corn can be cut off the cob to make it easier for you to eat. The Smore if eaten in a small amount just once a day should be a big thing. A little treat helps us stay true to our diet, as long as we plan it into our daily tracker. Take care of that jaw. Have you put cool clothes on it? That might help ease the pain. Take care my friend! emoticon
