official weigh in today and i was at 184.6 so up .6.... of course i haven't had a poo in a couple days so that could be easily remedied with a night time cuppa smooth move tea.... however, i'm obviously not going down at the rate i want to be going.
I have had a small cup of ice cream - about 1/2 - 3/4 cup on Sunday and 2 chocolate bars this week. I've also had a few small packs of cheetos.
Now I'm quite sure these indiscretions are not causing major weight gain, but they're certainly not the best choices and if i want to ever see 170-something on the scales I need to buckle down.
To all the super good bandsters out there... here's my disclaimer.... I DO NOT INTEND TO GIVE UP TREATS OR START FEELING GUILTY WHEN I DO INDULGE.... in my mind that kind of behaviour is akin to dieting and I HAVE GIVEN UP DIETS FOREVER.
That said, I intend to make good choices this week and monitor my consumption so that i can get a real indication of whether I NEED a fill or just WANT one so that BETSY ends up doing all the heavy lifting.
So starting today I'm going to keep track of what I'm eating, my satisfaction level afterwards and when I feel hungry again. I'm going to eat primarily protein and give the treats a rest until I gauge my true restriction level.
This morning I had a grande caramel macchiato with two packs of raw sugar.
For lunch I have leftover chicken, rice and veggies that I didn't eat last night because my tummy wasn't feeling up to it and I wasn't really hungry.
