Serves 4

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Not at my house, it doesn't.

Scary. Today I made a great casserole (very tasty) that served 4. Carefully I split it up and put half in the fridge for lunch tomorrow. Angel and I had our serving.

We worried about food all evening.

I think we have a problem.

My resolution was not to stop eating anything. Instead, it was to eat a serving size of everything and when possible to add extra veggies to the making of the food. I didn't realize it would be this hard. Tonight I've had 3 cups of coffee and a mug of (diet) iced tea, a half can of sardines and 2 servings of herring (fairly low calorie for the nutritional bang). I can honestly say I almost have the shakes. Not to make light of anyone's problems but at least drug addicts don't HAVE to take drugs, we HAVE to eat. I can see lots of "let's keep busy" activities in my future so I'm not fighting over the crumbs in the bottom of the bread bag.

My daughter asked me to try to find the meds combination she was originally on when we moved up here. The last combination stimulated her appetite terribly and she has gone from being a light-weight 8 year old when we moved here to a clinically obese 17 year old. The doctors up here couldn't figure out why a particular drug acted a certain way so they wouldn't prescribe it, even though her old doctor said "this is how it acts and we don't KNOW why, but it works so we prescribe it". While I can understand their concern, it wasn't a dangerous med and in fact I was delighted to find out it is now over the counter. So, tomorrow, she's going to start the old combo again in the hopes that it still suppresses her appetite. Here's hoping. She remembers with longing what it was like to be lightweight and not mind activity.

Ironically, I don't remember that for myself. I always believed I was fat. I look back on my teen pictures and I was anything BUT fat. Nevermind, that's what I thought, that I was fat, and so I can't remember being thin.

The mind, what a concept. emoticon

    I am a coffee chugger too! I'm trying to cut back- but it's going to be a baby steps. I'm going to try chugging water instead. Hope it will help with the single serving tummy grumbling :) emoticon emoticon

    You may be experiencing a withdrawal from sugar. Have you considered snacking on fruits when you feel this way? I have a huge issue with sugar and when you said the shakes, it immediately made me think of how I feel when I've been "back on the sugar" (hey its my drug of choice) and force myself to come off of it. It was just a thought. Stay strong in your resolve and keep pushing forward. You can totally do this!!
