Month – August 2009
I did fine at work trying to eat only low point snacks, but when I got home it was a whole other story. I walked in the door, put my stuff down and went to the frige. I grabbed a diet soda, popped it open and began to chug. When that didn’t satisfy me, I went to the cupboard and grabbed the fat free Pringles and pulled out two handfulls. I sat there munching as I complained about my day.
Feeling a bit better, I went upstairs and changed clothes. By the time I got downstairs again I was still feeling munchy so I went and pulled out the hummus and celery out of the frige. At some point, I realized what I was doing and stopped myself. I put back the food and went and sat at my computer and played on the Internet.
Kristy made a great comfort food dinner of turkey Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, asparagus, salad and garlic bread (fat free) The meal was 18 points, but then desert came with a small bowl of sherbet. I went over my points for the day by 9. It would have been a lot better if I had cut out some of the snacks I had through out the day.
On the way to work this morning I stopped by the store and picked up 3 packs of sugar free gum. Lets see how today goes.
Last night, Kristy and I took Deena out for a ride with us. We rode on the Path to Rockyford and back and stopped by the Corner Pub for dinner and beer. I tried to eat the lowest calorie foods I could find; however, the beer made me go over my points. I got to quit drinking during the week. I hate it because I love a good beer. Got to make some tough choices.
After a rocky birthday weekend, I have manged to stay on track. I weighed myself this morning and it appears that I have stayed the same so far. Going riding this evening if the weather holds out. I haven’t had much exercise since last weekend’s 40 mile rides.
Looks like the fever is spreading. Since I announced my new commitment, friends are starting to jump on board. My neighbor started Weight Watchers again and has been going strong for 3 days now. Just passed her on the road while walking Jack and Cooper.
I mentioned to a friend that I wanted to do a triathlon next year. Just found out she bought a bike and has made the commitment to do it with me. Look out world here we come!!!!
Today, 2 years later, I weigh 228.6 pounds. I have lost a total of 30.2 pounds. It seems like I have been dieting all my life with nothing really to show for it.
Well that stops here. I am committed to getting this weight off and keeping it off.
Hopefully, this blog will be a great tool for me. Stay tuned for more details.
