Day 25

Wow! 25 days at this. I'm made some big steps forward and some tiny steps back but I'm still working at it. Yesterday was tiny steps back in the eating as I couldn't resist goodies, it's my own fault I found some peanut brittle up on my cupboard that I bought at the Mini Bizarre and I brought it to work in the after noon. Lunch was chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I ate half the bag of brittle, it was so good. This is my biggest feat to overcome, enjoying good foods in moderation. I always seem to want that taste to linger on.

I had a diet cola when I got home and I made caribou cut up into little pieces with mushrooms and onions and rice with some soya sauce. After dinner I had a real fruit Popsicle and for some reason I had an second helping of rice and caribou. I'm not beating myself up over it AF did show up yesterday! What can I do but have a better day today.

I woke up this morning and my weight was 316lb, so I went down another pound. I'm down 9 lbs again and I hope to keep this up. We didn't really have breakfast this morning because I had planned on going to the store and pick up muffins for the kids but that didn't work out. My van while it started, couldn't be driven, it wouldn't steer. I have a leak in my power steering fluid line. So I called my mom and while we waited I gave each of the boys a nutrigrain bar, very nutritious I know. I had one as well and I'm not that fond of them.

So mom showed up and she did take us to the store. We each got something, I did my usual egg with ham and cheese on a english muffin. Two of the boys got that as well and the other got a muffin. They got yops and some raspberries.

I had my egg muffin and some raspberries and a green tea this morning. I just had lunch with one of my best friends. It was nice to visit with her. For lunch I had the special salad and shepard's pie. It was very good. In a weak moment I bought a pecan butter tart but I'm better now. Oh and I had a pineapple/cranberry/ginger ale concoction for my drink it was tasty. I did walk from work to the restaurant and back.

I have another errand to do and I'll walk to that as well. It's not like I have a choice my van is in the shop. So......

WTG on the 9 lbs!!!! Keep it up! :o)

I've found that right before AF I seem to eat more. I guess it's my body getting ready for it.

I have toask. I've been trying to figure it out but I can't, what is AF?

Aunt Flow, I was trying to think of a polite way to put it. Sorry TMI (too much information).

Now I know!!
