Wedding Diet Woes (and Wahoos!)

Welcome to my trials and triumphs!


Keeping Track of the Little Things

Officially down 20 pounds!

Soooo the other day I was like, “I wonder if I am getting enough protein…” so I kept track for a few days and I found out that I in fact, do NOT get enough protein for how fat I am. I should be getting 100 grams of protein a day. To figure out how much you should get, take your weight by 0.37. For example, I weigh 280. 280 x 0.37= 103. Somewhere in my reading over the years, I have read that I shouldn’t need(???) to go over 100 grams a day.

With me keeping close track of my protein, I also kept close track of calories, fat, carbs, fiber, and sugar. Another thing I lack: fiber. I read women should be getting like 25 grams a day. Things I get way too much of: EVERYTHING ELSE. So now I will be posting these, starting March 1st, on here as well. I am hoping that seeing them will help me SEE them.

I was talking to H2B the other day. I asked him how come he never said anything about my weight gain. Since we have been together, I have gained 40 pounds. See, I didn’t see it. Again. I just didn’t see myself getting huge. I don’t know how that happens, but I asked him if he would have ever said anything, and he said no. I was like, “aren’t you embarrassed to be seen with me?” And he was all, “No, I love you.” And I thought, that is ridiculous, but nice.

I like that you wrote your goals on your mirror- that’s a cool idea. I kinda wish my bathroom mirror was large enough for something like this. Maybe I’ll write something happy on there anyway.

Aww, I had a similar experience with my boyfriend. After we started dating I gained 20 pounds (of which I have now lost ten), and it sorta snuck up on me. It’s weird- unless I see an actual photo of myself, I usually do not see a girl as large as I am in the mirror. Long ago I gained about sixty pounds, and it was like I couldn’t figure out why my clothes weren’t fitting. In the mirror I swear I still saw the 10/12 girl that I was and not the size 18 that I had become. Even now, I look in the mirror and most of the time see a pretty and shapely girl. I know I’m not as fit, but I don’t look big to me in the mirror. And then I see a photo, and I’m like “What the hell? That’s not me, is it? I’m HUGE” Crazy. When I asked my boyfriend about the twenty pounds he just shrugged and said he didn’t notice anything. That he’s madly in love with me, and I ridiculously beautiful. It’s nice to have somebody like that around! 🙂
