The last 2 nights have included eating extra food. Yesterday I felt exhausted and hungry. Today I feel energized. NSV is I don't need to suck in my abdomen to zip up my pants--pretty flat all on its own. Perfect timing for a motivation boost!

B 75 coffee, coconut milk, vanilla shake
L 291 egg, bacon, cheddar muffins, salad, HB egg, evoo, 0-cal Italian dressing
D grilled chicken, braised broccoli
S 190 protein bar

Yesterday got off to a good start but ended up being very trying. At one point I was thinking wistfully of my go-to comfort foods, the ones when I am in the specific difficult situation in which I found myself. For the first time, I realized I preferred to be clear & present for whatever came up instead of anesthetizing myself with rich food. It was an epiphany. But by the end of the day, at home, I over ate a lot of food on my plan. Calories were probably about 2000.

Today
B 100 vanilla shake, coffee

Saturday reflections. I weighed today and am in the same place as 10 days ago. I think it's artifact, as my body is clearly smaller. My friendly scale has given me a good reality check. I have been veering off lately. On one hand, it's been good to loosen things up and avoid boredom, deprivation, my low-carb issues. All of those objectives are met and I want to recommit to a more structured WOE for a while and work harder to separate food from emotion. I am pleased that, when I have turned to food for non-fuel reasons, it has mostly been on plan food. That's real progress.

I have about 25 lbs to go to get to my favorite size & clothes.

Today will be an off plan, but not crazy-eating day. I have a luncheon and if I try to be strict at social things, I boomerang. I will need to get right back to the stricter plan tomorrow, as I've been lax this past week. I will account today, but it's tedious to assign calories to restaurant food. I'll make my best guestimate at the end of the day.
B coffee, shake, store bought egg dish with salsa, cheese & breakfast potatoes.

Weekend was the good the bad & the ugly. I did not do the exercise video and ate too much yesterday. The good included a lot of walking & what I overate was on plan food. I learned that I will do better avoiding low carb ice cream--it seems to throw me off kilter and stoke cravings.

Monday
B 145 bacon, cheddar, egg muffins, coconut/protein shake in coffee
L 157 salad, HB egg, evoo, 0-cal italian dsg
L 130 broccoli cheese soup
D 340 grilled chicken, broccoli
S 293 BBQ soy nuts, egg white omelet w/ cabbage
Off the rails additions after work, many calories

Uh-oh a day in food wilderness. I'm not sure what's going on but I think it was anxiety--about the news, about some positive feedback (go figure), food boredom. The mornings are noticeably darker now and that tends to kick up my carb cravings. I am looking forward to getting off the packaged diet foods--might be time to stop and save the remainder for another time.

Wed
I have had a run of off-plan days. Today I am working my back, in the usual way. First withdraw from fast carbs (sweets & bread). Then ratchet down the calories. It may be time to add more healthy carbs into my plan, but first I need to get back on the wagon. There have been unexpected treats at work, and some stress-related forays into food. The things is, I turn to food even when something good happens. I think food is my drug of choice for smoothing out my emotional state.

B omelet at work cafeteria with egg mixture, sausage, bell peppers, spinach, salsa, some sort of cooking oil.
S BBQ soy buts
L Asian slaw with peanuts,, broccoli w cheese, avocado slice, 1 new potato, rotisserie chicken from hot food bar

Sunday
I have met the enemy & it is me, haha. I have hit a wall of feeling unmotivated and deprived. I am not succeeding at white-knuckling it so far--my diet food that I love is suddenly unappealing. I have gone off the rails every day for one reason or another. and included sweets. I am keeping my plan to get over the sweet craving--no sugar no flour, eventually it will stick. I want to work out a sustainable WOE for now that I can live with.
Tomorrow will be
B frittata cheddar & veggies, coffee/lightener
L salad, HB egg, sunflower seeds, soup
D chicken, broccoli
S dates, figs

No calorie counting. Still consuming too many calories, but glad I had no sweets, in spite of feeling tempted.

Wednesday
B bacon/cheddar eg muffin, coffee/lightener
L BBQ soynuts, veggie pizza slice, Fuji apple
D chicken chili
S fig

Feeling energetic and relaxed about my choice to suspend dieting. Whew! It is easier right now to make better choices in the absence of most restrictions. Any weight loss will be slow and incremental. Pretty sure there will not be any gaining as long as I avoid processed easy-to-grab foods, esp. sweets. Some foods are triggers to want more--those are the food to avoid.

Thursday
B Frittata w vegs & cheddar, coffee/lightener
L salad, HB egg & cheese, avocado, sunflower seeds, no dressing
S pizza slice
D chicken stew, broccoli
S Bleu cheese, figs, apple, protein bar

Exhausting work day yesterday, craving sugary sweets all day long but stayed strong. Too much snacking, but this will pass soon as long as I stay away from sweets. The sweet craving is taking longer than usual, possibly due to dark mornings. I would like to have a day of eating my planned food and feeling satisfied.
