Day 13-15: Never Too Late

I am soooo glad this weekend is over!! Well, I wouldn't mind not working another day, but my eating habits were all over the place. Let's just say, I pretty much blew off the SBD for a few meals and snacks. So, I'm going to do Phase 1 for another week. When I'm good, my body feels good and my hunger is in control. When I eat too many carbs, curbing hunger and cravings is an issue later on. Good time to read the way our body reacts to sugar and carbs in the SBD book again...he sure wasn't kidding!! I'm not shocked at weight stayed exactly the same this week. I'm actually a bit surprised I didn't gain.

My big problem I always run into is "Why Can't I Have That?" I see family or friends eating something and I begin to want it! They can handle it in their body, why can't I? I have the choice to eat whatever I want, if I really wanted to, but I know what my body does with the crud and I don't like the effect. My stomach likes to be a bit of a rebellious teenager and a slow student too. But if I keep trying, it will slowly let these lessons sink in, and my brain will gain control over what I let inside. After two weeks, I'm already getting rid of the "All or Nothing" attitude. If I eat poorly for one meal, I don't let myself blow off the rest of the day. It's never too late to start again.

Day 13/14/15 Totals:

  • Calories: 1601/1488/1210
  • Carbs: 140/281 (whoa, Nelly!!!)/31
  • Fats: 81/19/83
  • Protein: 85/60/83

Off to other subjects: Giggleman and I have actually made a decision. June 13th, 2009 will be when we finally get hitched. Our budget is set for an affordable level, we agree on guest amount (finally), and have found some great vendors! At some point, our anniversary will fall on Friday the 13th, and I think something good will ward off the bad. (I've broken a wrist and an ankle on other 13ths in the past!)

Hi, welcome to HYC!

I understand what you mean wanting to eat what others are eating. I have a skinny friend. She eats sugar all day long. I use to wonder how she kept so thin. Then I paid attention. She may eat sugar, but she eats very small amounts at a sitting. My problem, is I eat the entire thing, the entire piece of cake, while she throws most of it away.

I'm learning portion control so I can eat what I want.

Best wishes on your journey.

Congrat's on setting a date!

As for eating what you want-- you know, I eat what I want, but the not so good stuff in very small amounts only. BUt, like you said, only YOU know what works for YOU!!
