Yearning for… MYSELF.

Cause I’m not sure who this fat chick is!

Yay! August 22, 2011

Filed under: August — jewlz280 @ 10:56 am

So, weighed in this AM and got 198 flat!  Yay!  First time I’ve seen my number back below 199 in a while.  So, I’m really happy with that.  I know it’s only 1lb., but that is hopefully one last pound on my behind!  I haven’t ‘officially’ seen that weight since 6/12.  The lowest I’ve seen was the 196.5, but I really think that was a fluke.  I only saw that one day.  But 198 is only 1.5lbs. from that!  So, going to try to stay positive.  Not going to get too hyped, though, until I give this a longer run.  Mostly because I feel like I have bounced around so much in the last month or two.  And like I said, I don’t want to stress on it.  I just want to do the best I can and if I get any kind of results, that’s great.  So, that is why I am pleased with the 1lb.  And like I’ve said before, ESPECIALLY after I didn’t even do a full week.  Friday and Saturday of last week were sorta out of my control, but I did my best.  Then Sun., Mon. and Tues., I just wasn’t on any plan.  I didn’t ‘stuff’ myself, but I wasn’t really thinking of calories.  But on Weds., I started paying attention so I am hoping that I can do that at this point.  I’m hoping this can be my re-set.  Either way, I am just trying to keep going and not give up.  It’s too important that I lose this weight.  I refuse to not try.

Today and tomorrow are going to be errands and Family day.  I’m SURE I won’t do horrid, but it probably won’t be great.  I know it will involve a lot of eating out.  So, without further hesitation:

Breakfast:  Cracker Barrel — 1 pancake, 1 egg with cheese, 1 slice bacon, 1 biscuit with gravy, a couple of bites of grits; coffee    I actually feel I did really well here!  I only ate what I wanted and until I was full.  I DO wish we had ordered some fresh fruit, but the last time I got it, it was only grapes.  I like grapes, but more as a snack and not with breakfast.

Snack:  Large caramel Iced Latte; no sweetener as the caramel is already sweet.  Oh!  And two powdered munchkins.  I wouldn’t have eaten them but I was so hungry!

Lunch:  Target Deli — 1/2 spinach/turkey club wrap, fruit (strawberries, grapes, pineapple), a couple of potato wedges with ranch; more of my iced latte

Dinner:  Mangia — Two whole slices (medium sized), the crust of youngest’s; Diet Coke OH!  Yes, that’s the name of our store brand.

Overall, I don’t feel bad.  I didn’t overeat, I didn’t eat unless I was hungry, and I did get in SOME fruit and veg even if it wasn’t as much as I would’ve liked.  And even though I loved the pizza (it’s my FAVE!) I missed the greek salad I normally get.  I think I’d rather have one slice of pizza and my salad.  So, I will make it a point to either get that or make that next time.  I think last night’s lack of salad was due to being tired and we just didn’t think.  We were out, so we bought it ahead of time and ate it later just so we didn’t have to get back out.  Just easier that way.  Oh, and we also did a whole lotta walking!  😀  More to come the next couple of days, too.  🙂

    Good job on losing a pound!
    Reading this post made me hungry. 🙂 I am glad that I only have a few days left to detox. I’d very much like a turkey club on whole wheat right now…

    Oh, Didi, you’re speakin’ my language! I have a crazy love of avocado. CRAZY. And now guess what I’m craving for lunch! LOL

    I love avocado too. (if you rub the inside of an avocado peel on your face and leave it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing it’s a very good mask, as is squashed avocado with a little honey) The texture and color is just so pleasing and yummy. I like to make lettuce wraps with a romaine leaf, avocado, sprouts and tomato, and sometimes a drizzle of some kind of dressing. Lord, that sounds good right now. 🙂
