Last night I went clothes shopping...the one thing I hate most! I needed a new outfit for my hubby's graduation dinner tonight. I waited until the last possible minute, I know. I procrastinate. I am also a mother and it is hard as hell to do anything that revolves around me. I went to Catherine's, a plus size store. It took forever AND the baby cried and my son bitched and moaned the entire time. I am not thrilled with the outfit that I bought so I am leaving work a smidge early today and going to run to Avenue (another plus size store) to see if I can find something that I like a bit better. This time I am NOT bringing the kids. I asked Macy's sitter if she can keep her for a bit while I run around and Matt will be at school. I am so proud of my husband! 5 years of apprenticeship school for plumbing and he did it! He's a great guy!!!
Let's talk about weight loss. I am weighing only once a week and that will be Mondays. I know that if I see a gain that I beat myself up and sabotage my weight loss efforts. Ugh! So, obviously I am fat for several reasons. I don't really know what to eat and I don't know how many calories I should be consuming. The dietitian didn't spend a great deal of time with me. I am eating 3 meals a day and only snacking if I am absolutely physically hungry. I only when I am hungry. Here is what I ate yesterday:
- Breakfast: Weight Control Oatmeal (1 packet)
- Lunch: Tuna Salad (5-6 forkfuls), Refried Beans (1 cup) w/ sprinkle of cheese, Salmon (1-2 oz)
- Dinner: Sloppy Joes with Turkey meat (2 sandwiches WITHOUT the buns), Green Beans (1/2 cup), Fries (Handful)
- Water (2 liters)
- No exercise yesterday :-(
I have absolutely NO restriction and am able to eat nearly anything (haven't tried everything) and a fairly large quantity. I stop myself when I think that I am "satisfied" even though I would love to eat a LOT more! I am still struggling with head hunger and emotional urges to eat but I have done really well with distracting myself and it goes away. Wednesday I was gonna go crazy and eat cereal and whatever else I could find but instead I watched Amy W.'s vlog and it kept me from binging! Thank you Amy W.!
Speaking of Amy W., I have been reading all of her old posts and they are so inspiring and funny! I think she needs her own TV show because she would definitely have at least one viewer, ME! She started her weight loss journey at nearly the same weight as me and so that makes me hopeful that I can make it to my goal weight! So, big thanks to AMY W.!
Have a Great Friday Everyone!
