Woke up today at 214- interesting… Went down a pound and yup drank just as much water yesterday lol. What bugs me MOST is Saturday morning I SAW 211.5 stupid mean scale lol. Again WTF happened? It’s okay, I saw that number and I’m going to see it again- even if it kills me 😉
Food was good yesterday- workout terrible- a few minutes in I felt like such crap with the heat! I did half an hour then stopped cuz I started feeling dizzy It was just TOO hot- my husband was looking at me like I was CRAZY to try to workout when it was over 86F outside. And we don’t have an air conditioner…
My food yesterday consisted of:
wheat thins + two LC wedges (190)
LC mac and cheese + 1 small orange + 1 FF pudding cup (290+50+100= 440)
3 slices of freschetta pepperoni pizza (600)
2 cups cauliflower with 2 tbsp Newman’s own FF Ranch (200)
1 SC fudge bar (50)
Sure pizza wasn’t the greatest but OH WELL lol (still made under 1500 cals). It’s that freshetta pizza- tastes different (not greasy) so I think they use more natural ingrediants. Today’s dinner is cajun chicken pasta with alfredo sauce and grilled zucchini YUM! I haven’t made it in a while and hubby asked for it so of course I’m gonna make it- mine will definitely have MORE zucchini than his though.
YUM I LOVE zucchini!
I started this post the other day and never finished it:
Reading Fat Pant’s post about “normal eating” and how when she’s starving is when she makes the bad choices made me think about a conversation I had with one of my friend’s the other day.
Now he’s been trying to lose weight as long as I have and he’s only lost like maybe 8 lbs in 8 months BECAUSE he eats like crap (granted I don’t know how much he has to lose but it’s not 10 lbs). He goes to the gym almost every day but he doesn’t eat healthy at all. So the other day AGAIN he was asking me about food and I was like well I eat every few hours, I don’t let myself get too hungry, and so on… Then he looks at me and says “you SHOULD be hungry.”
I look back at him and say “no… studies show eating more frequently and not allowing yourself to get too hungry helps you lose weight in the long run, when you get hungry you make bad choices… besides that with my PCOS when my blood sugar dips too low I feel sick.”
He starts to argue with me till I finally say that with my method I have lost over 20 lbs so I’m not changing it anytime soon…
I think he was slightly stunned but really- REALLY? REALLY! You are going to tell me to “be hungry” when I’ve told you before that does NOT work for me? That I make bad choices when I get too hungry? That I have insulin resistance and maintaining blood sugar is important? I’m sorry but what I’m doing so far is working for me even if it’s slow and even if I did fall off the bandwagon for a while. To me I’m more successful than him because to be frank IMO guys should have a MUCH easier time losing weight than women because they don’t have hormonal imbalances and menstrual cycles to deal with.
I know people say just pretend you agree with a person or say you will think about it but hmm no not this time… I’m frankly getting tired of all the “advice” I’ve heard about losing weight. The other day at work the girls were talking about medifast and nutrisystem and I KIND OF felt like they were telling me to try it out. I haven’t spoken much about my weight loss at work and I was like “oh yeah my friend’s on Nutrisystem but I don’t think those are good because they don’t teach you how to cook for yourself” and went back to my work. I personally have nothing against nutrisystem but it’s just not for me. I know none of those girls who were telling me about nutrisystem have ever had a weight problem.
I know to my coworkers they think they are helping out- but maybe it’s the stubborn side of me coming out but I don’t want anyone’s help- I can do it myself! If I ask for help that’s different! And besides if they cared so damn much why don’t they ever invite me to go work out with them? Almost everyday they go to workout and not once have they said “hey Bee, wanna join us?” It irks me honestly. Sure I could ask them, but I guess I’m being stubborn. I feel like if I ask then I’m just tagging along instead of being part of the group. I mean they obviously see what I eat and I’ve never pigged out at work at ALL. Even at the potlucks I fill my plate up once and that’s it!
Anyways- yeah- I’m not going to allow myself to get hungry because of something someone said. Now that doesn’t mean I stuff my face all day, but when that first “I am hungry signal” comes up, I don’t ignore it till it turns into a raging beast, I feed it so that it goes back to sleep! I don’t want to go food crazy ever again if I can help it!
