So just a bit over three months in folks and there is one thing I have taken from this whole process so far. Tracking absolutely works (for me) and I have replaced my old addictions with this new addiction. Nothing goes in my gullet without being written down. I am really good at either finding calories or knowing about what they are. If I am in doubt, I over guesstimate it. I also have a much different definition of overeating now. I am shocked at how if I have one thing over what I am used to eating now, I feel like holy crap, I am out of control!! For example, we bought a cantaloupe the other day and Kathy cut it up for our picnic. We had a bowl of half of it left over, and I was having trouble getting to my calories AND I was still hungry, so I had some of the cantaloupe after my peanut butter and celery treat that signifies my eating is over for the evening. Well about a minute after eating maybe a cup of cut up cantaloupe, I was like, what the crap, what was I thinking? I am out of control!! After some really looking at it, I calmed down. I just find it fascinating that I went from eating 4 hot dogs AFTER SUPPER being a common occurrence to having a cup of cantaloupe freak me out. Oh goodness what kind of monster have I created!! haha.
So I need a ruling. I am waaaay active on the weekends now and I have been having a problem with starving on Sundays and Mondays for a month and a half or better now. I decided to combat it by letting myself get to 1800 calories on Sunday (more cantaloupe involved and yes another small freak out, as I have been staying under 1500 a lot lately!) Do ya'll think that is a good idea? does anyone else employ this method? I am gonna try it the next couple of weeks and see what the scale tells me. Speaking of which, I am excited about weigh day this week. I just know I will be down to 240 and that means that sometime in November, we are talking 230's baby! That will be one goal met in the Hot 100!!
OK, I gotta go see if the Rangers can get up 3-1 so I will see ya'll later!!
