Eating/Sunday Update

Well I beginning my third week on eating. And I am also proud to say that my husband has been on the same program as me and doing quite well. All though he does tend to b*t*h every now and then.

So we are on the high-protein low-carb AKA Atkins AKA Keto AKA whatever you want to call it diet AKA eating program.

It’s pretty much like it was before, you have no snacks and if you are hungry you eat something that is good for you. I still drink my protein shake in the morning on my way out the door. And I try to focus on protein, protein, protein, good fat, low carb and definitely nothing processed, out of a box, or anything white AKA bread, starches, potatoes, rice, pasta. And I am definitely in the groove now.

First couple of weeks I definitely missed bread. The second week I definitely missed french fries spirit and right now I feel pretty good about stuff. Last Friday my work celebrated my birthday a day early, and they brought donuts and sausage biscuits and things like that. I just wrapped it up in a napkin and told them thank you so very much and ended up throwing it away. When they walked out of my office I ate my boiled eggs and my little almonds and was quite content with that.

So this week she and I are going to try to eat no later than 7:30 which we have been doing for the last 2 weeks at night. And we’re going to have a light breakfast AKA protein shake and then have a lunch a snack and then the final meal until the next day where we begin again with a protein shake.

My thing is always been volume eating. And now that I can’t eat so much because of the surgery that I had on my stomach aka the plication, I can’t eat very much but I gain the weight back because of what I ate. Junk food let me repeat that junk food. Fast food. Fast food.

I’ve been sober for over 2 years so I don’t have any excess calories due to alcohol in my system and I am so proud of myself for that.

Again I can’t go back to what I used to be I can only focus on what I am now. What I did then is over and done with never to return not ever ever ever parrot but I can work on today.

So do what you have to do to make yourself well. If you could have support, that’s even better. Are pretty much now just deal with support with my husband and my friend eye candy and I pretty much keep the weight loss away from everybody else I don’t talk about it to anybody that I work with or that I know so I’m kind of stifling myself. But I think that’s what’s best for now. Probably because I’m still so insecure and self-conscious

So hang in there. Hang tough. Don’t give up. Eat Smart. Don’t Starve. If you’re hungry eat

And this is very true you have to eat to lose weight

    Great writings today!! Congrats on doing the Atkins. I love my morning shakes, even after 8 1/2 years. I’ve been drinking them closer to 12-1, so I eat less or I hope to eat less. It’s sort of the 16/8 fast my son does or did until Covid. He threw mini Snickers into my car today at my husband, I hate them as much as I hate fast food!! I know obese or was and never ate fast food is weird. Pizza, bread and fried food and massive portions helped me become huge, oh ya, bakeries and Dunkin, chocolate filled donuts or coffee rolls with frosting, I was so bad. I kept a stash of Godiva chocolates
    in my car and my sons found it!! and told my husband.
