DAY 116 of 2014: I feel so fat today

Saturday, April 26, 2014

I am sure you have had days like I am having today. I just feel so fat. I am not thin, to say the least, but I have lost almost half of my goal weight. But I have not lost anything in the past 5 months. I have been lazy and not good about my eating. In fact, when I got on the scale today, I was back at 160, 3 lbs up. So of course, I am depressed today. Sigh. I must get on top of my eating again! I went to the Arts & Crafts show today in Blue Ridge (lots of cute stuff), so got some walking in, but not a lot. I did not eat one fruit or vegetable today though. Yikes! I usually try to make sure I eat 5 at minimum, but I had biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast, a reuben and beer and lemon pie for a late lunch, then yogurt for dinner. I may have stayed within my calorie range, but dang, I ate horribly! I may just not go to the church potluck because they are having hamburgers, hot dogs, cake, and potluck whatever others bring. I just need to stay away from food for a little while!!! And seeing as how I have been letting temptation rule my life for a while, there is no reason to add insult to injury. I did put some dried navy beans and some "light" sausage in the crockpot to cook while I was gone today, then came home and added some potatoes, carrots, onions, and kale and will let it cook on low all night tonight. I was down to one little container of soup in my freezer and needed to start replenishing. After this batch is done, I have some split peas I am going to fix with some ham. Then maybe some vegetable soup, as that really is my favorite.

    This is a Garden Harvest Vegetable soup kind of day for me after yesterday's excesses! Too bad I didn't think of it yesterday. I usually make it in the crockpot. I guess I'll have to go shopping this morning and cook it in a pot on the stove to be ready for a late lunch at 3. Sounds like a plan! So happy I stopped by your blog! emoticon It's been FOREVER since I ate a veggie. Seriously! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yesterday I made a batch of vegetable soup and another of split pea with ham as my freezer was empty, too.

    My weight has been stable for some time and I still have a long way to go so I have got to get myself together! I eat lots of veggies but I think I have to get the amounts under control.

    Could it work out if you ate BEFORE going to the church event and then just socialized or would that still be too tempting? Just a thought.

    And realize, ok, today is a new day, fresh slate. Stick to your plan.
