It's Kansas State Fair time! I thought I was going good and watching what I ate while I was there tonight. Obviously not! I must have eaten too much of the fried food variety today. Either that or it was some ingredient in the ice cream. At any rate, I'm paying for it now! I just need to remember how horrible I feel when I don't eat the right things. One of the biggest problems for me is Mexican food! I LOVE Mexican food!! Unfortunately, it HATES me! That and pizza! I decided I'd just suffer the consequences and enjoy it anyway. I need to remember just how much I suffer and ask myself is it worth it to feel this way? At this moment the answer would be NO! I should also have a photo of myself at my heaviest and realize if I behave when I eat, I can look closer to what I did when I'd lost a lot of weight in college. Not sure I'll ever get back into a size 7 (I'm not 18 or 19 anymore!) but I can at least get into a size where I can share clothes with my Mom and sister!

Tomorrow I'm going to start recording what I eat (I've never been good at that...denial is much easier if I don't write it down) and see just what I eat that causes me to suffer as I am now. If I were to guess, I'd probably say fried food, but there are some others that may be triggers too (like ice cream, dairy at times, bread at times).

I just want to feel better!

Have a Terrific Thursday, all!

    I think we can spurge at the fair, but not make it a normal practice.

    I used to be amazed when my husband ate his way though and the combinations, he didn't get sick.

    When I do eat alot for something like this, I try and eat less the rest of the day ( or not at all)/ or take a long walk.

    I also LOVE Mexican food! I have been terrible about tracking--so time consuming! Not a good excuse, because I really have nothing better to do!

    One thing to keep in mind is that sometimes what seems to be a problem with milk is more a problem with the lactose. I can have the lactose free milk and yogurt since the fermentation process gets rid of the lactose.

    The Spark food tracker is a great tool. It helps you get all the nutrients you need and the right portions. It really helps you be accountable. emoticon

    I find that if I actually keep a little notebook and write down everything that slips through the lips and how much that I keep things on a little more even keel. I need to start doing it again because I am spinning my wheels and not getting any where

    Great idea to write it all down. That's my failing too. But must start listing everything,I have IBS and am searching for triggers which set it off.
    I am a sometimes person too, sometime it is bread, sometimes it's fats, some times it's stress related. Stay positive! Ree
