100DWL: Days 11 and 12

Monday, March 03, 2014

The recent entries are about eating for fuel and flavor. NOT emotional distress. So this is a crucial lesson for me.

I feel that I have been changing my diet for the better in terms of consuming less empty calories. I used to be mindlessly eating a half a box of crackers at my, I eat four crackers a day, with a slice of cheese, during an afternoon snack. Overall, I try to keep my protein, fat and carbs within SP guidelines, but my carbs are coming from dairy and veggies and fruits.

I think I still tend to eat too fast. Need to learn to slow down and savor the flavor. AS far as emotional eating, I think I need to stop, go to my quiet place and pray, when I feel stressed or scared or struggling. I need to stop using sweets as a reward---mostly I have.

I had a good time trying on old clothes yesterday, beleive it or not. My frugal streak. Not wanting to buy stuff in what I hope will be an interim size range that I am just passing through on the way to goal. I also have some shirts I need to take in at the sides, as the reduction in refined carbs has definitely reduce the belly fat already.

    Good luck! Don't let the numbers beat you, sometimes they lie and make us depressed. Keep track of the other indicators for when the numbers seem to gang up on you!
