Total Weight Loss

Sunday, April 25, 2010


Dinner was very yummy. I had grilled chicken, grilled corn-on-the-cob, and grilled squash and zucchini. It took forever for the all the food to be done and about an hour or so before I ate my dinner I ended up cheating and eating a bratwurst. I didn't have it on a bun or anything, just plain and by itself. I haven't hardly eaten a thing today so I figured it would be ok.

But then I started really craving some root beer. Jeremiah had bought some and I saw them in the kitchen. I decided to pop one open but only had 2 drinks from the can and then put it down and was fine. I am really proud of that I could stop and the craving was over then.

On Friday night I all of a sudden, out of the blue, started craving some chicken fried steak and gravy. I did not give into that craving and it went away, but boy was it a strong sensation/emotion when the craving hit. I have no idea where it came from or what triggered it because it happened when we were driving to get my step-son and we were out in the boonies with nothing around. I didn't see a commercial, or see a restaurant to set me off, it just happened.

The only other craving that I have really had was about 2 weeks ago and I just really wanted something salty. I wanted some popcorn but there was none in the house. I ended up having a few tortilla chips with a little cheese on them. I only had a few and then felt better. I am learning to not totally deprive myself, to go ahead and give in a little, just not go crazy. So, far that is working and I don't feel like I am giving up much so I think this will continue to work.

  1. My mother-in-law has drilled into my head that a little tastes the same as a lot. She is the queen of tiny portions and is 60 years old and the same weight, if not less, than she was in high school. She refuses to deprive herself and makes sure she stays active. She really has become my role model. Another book you might like is "French Women Don't Get Fat". I've never followed her diet to the letter but it's given me a lot of ideas on food ideas and feeling like I'm indulging without actually indulging. Lately I've been a little bad and let Tony talk me into buying ice cream and soda, and I think the next time I'm in Denton I'm going to grab a few cases of Izze and instead of ice cream, make smoothies. I already make smoothies for us in the morning for breakfast, but Tony always wants ice cream after dinner and if he's going to insist then I think we can do smoothies instead where I can control the sugar content.
