Thanks Nicole for posting a comment asking for an update. I should really be ashamed of myself for the lack of them!
I just realized, right now, I missed the year and a half mark, so here is the year and a half plus a month update lol.
Things are well. I have noticed the last few months, I’m able to fit more into my stomach at times. I still log into My Fitness Pal daily. it’s really how I gauge my eating for the day. Weekdays are usually pretty similar. Weekends, things get a little off schedule. For example, one day a few weekends ago, my calories were low that day, so I had sushi for lunch at the mall. That’s about 330 calories, and I wouldn’t normally have that much for a meal, but since they were low, I did. That seems to be how I am doing things.
This weekend was totally weird. I was out Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. Surrounded by food I don’t normally eat. I realized I still hold back, and it is STILL HARD.
Here are my diaries for Friday, Saturday and Sunday:
I range about 1500-1700 calories a day usually. These days, I was at a work function, a friends house and my nephews bday party. I usually allow myself meat and cheese and usually stay away from the bread. I had 1/2 egg salad sandwich and some triscuits and some breaded cauliflower. All delicious. I did not eat the sweets, pizza, cake and ordered a salad for dinner.
At my nephew’s party, I didn’t have pizza or cake. I could have, but this weekend was not normal and I already had a weekend full of treats and things I don’t usually have. So, I think, that’s a pretty good balance right?
I’m certainly not cured in the least. I talk to myself daily and often.
This takes work! I weigh myself about 3 times a week now, and range from 146-149. 150 is where I get worried, which has happened once, but went down the next day.
Shopping is pretty amazing. Fitting in a size 8 and Medium. It’s so much fun, AND I bought jeggings and wear them! lol I just wish I had more money!
I’m struggling for things to write, so I think I will just hit publish and try to think of more to write later!
