  • Re-feeding

    Feeling pretty good. I have a nifty stack of Blue Willow on my counter. Oh, my goodness, you should see the cuteness of the extra bowls, the ones I hadn't asked for, just surplus to our requirements. Although, now that we know about them, they are ESSENTIAL! So small, almost baby bowls, and just the right size for a scoop of ice cream with berries. I have been wanting to try that Coconut Bliss ice cream. I think I have an excuse now: it will look so cute in the bowls!

    Oh, and the eating went well, too.

    Here's how it went down:

    Up at 5:00
    Vitamins

    1:30 rotisserie chicken leg

    4:00 5 oz lambchop

    6:00 tacos
    3 romaine leaves
    3/4C ground beef, chili, onion
    1/2 tomato
    1/2 avocado
    1/3C cheddar
    6T sour cream

    Water:11 glasses

    Bed at 9:30

    There was a little sudden bowel movement at 3:15, but not painful. Then normal happenings for the rest of the day and this morning. And, charming surprise, my weight stayed the same when I hopped on the scales today. Expecting it to go up, but any extra days it wants to hang around, being low, I am happy to accept. It put me in a jolly mood.

    After eating, I felt I could have stopped after two tacos- rather full- but the amount in total doesn't seem excessive to me, so that's good.

    I meant to eat earlier, but I was so busy with errands, that it didn't happen. About noon I was even considering going another day, but that would have messed up my sashimi and gym plans, so I didn't consider it for long. Still, I felt it could be done!

    My plan for today will be to eat moderately. Maybe a little something in the morning, then my sashimi lunch, and if I want something, a little more after the workout. That's usually too late for me to eat, but I might go for it today.

    Happy day, everyone! (What is this? Am I channeling PrimalCajun? I feel very peppy and joyful!)

          LOL sounds like fun. I never read the secret because the "born again" nut inside me said "don't mess with that bad woo woo stuff". (Just being honest, not really a BA nut) I think I may download it to my nook for this long weekend.

          Actually, my numbers are better than that-85 students, 25 days to the exam. 3-4 students a day? That way I can really concentrate on the tough ones.

          • I thought you could do it on your 'six-day weekend'. Get it out of the way. I've never read "The Secret' either. Didn't even know it was about visualization. Or vocalization, as the case may be.

                that's part of it...its about the law of attraction. What you put out to the universe comes back to you. Ever heard the old saying "be careful what you wish for?" kind of like that.

                great book! Would make a good summer read!

                  Some thoughts from while I was walking, on the different kinds of hunger. (We should be like the Eskimo, and have different words for it, like they do for snow.)

                  Mind Hunger (
                  and its henchman, Sugar Cravings)-wanting to EAT! So insistent and bullying. It makes you do things you don't want to, and you feel ashamed and dirty afterwards. And it won't leave you alone for a MINUTE. You can fight it off with tricks and tools, and it always comes back. Even after you have banished it from your life for months, it is always waiting its opportunity.

                  Mouth Hunger-mmm, it all looks and smells so good. Such a flirt of a hunger, always ready to engage with every single piece of food that goes by. So gregarious, it is open to anything, even once we have told it (firmly) that grains aren't food, sugar is not food, no, legumes aren't food, except for once a year-get-over-it. But Mouth Hunger does not get over it. It holds a grudge, and keeps account of all the food it has been denied, determined, to one day, EAT IT ALL!

                  Stomach Hunger-the growling empties. In my SAD life, how often did I ever get to this point? I was eating too often to BE hungry. I was afraid of it, and yet, this is the politest kind of hunger. Your stomach growls. You feed it and it is happy, or you say, 'not now' and it quiets down and tries again after a couple of hours. A reasonable, well-behaved hunger.

                  Body Hunger-lethargy and light-headedness. A resourceful kind of hunger, because if you ignore this, it just goes to your body, and helps itself. Fat mostly, a little protein if things go on long enough. It is done talking, it is all about ACTION! But it holds no grudge against YOU: it doesn't pester you, or make you crazy. It is the kindest of thieves, actually, making you feel good with ketones while it goes about its business. And since most of what it is stealing is from the midden heap (so to speak) we're very understanding about it all.

                  • I'm liking it

                    For the third day in a row, my weight is 182.0. I KNOW this will bob back up, but for the first time, I am having a little fantasy: that I will stay here for a while and start scootching DOWNWARDS. Probably the fastest way to get it to go back up I know, but thrilling, nonetheless.

                    I was very surprised to see it this morning. First, it has been two days of eating now. Definitely time for the bounce back up. Second, apparently I ate a lot yesterday. It didn't FEEL like a lot (I went to bed peckish) but when I put everything into Paleotrack (I was going to start that after the fast, remember?) I was informed I had consumed 2022 calories. That was a shocker. From breakfast and a sashimi lunch? Apparently so.

                    Anyhow, here's the details:

                    Up at 6:00
                    Vitamins

                    10:00 4 mushrooms(1C)
                    2 eggs, scrambled in
                    1t butter

                    1:15 1 1/2 plates sashimi
                    1/4C seaweed salad
                    1/2C rice
                    1/2C creme brulee

                    water: 11 glasses
                    walking: 20"

                    Bed at 10:30 (!)

                    No gym after all. Honey had a flat tire and I had to go pick him and his bike up. By the time we got home it was too late for me, but he still went. The man is dedicated. Then, Middlest had a school project going on, that for various reasons stressed ME out, so I was very proud of myself that I didn't stuff things into my face. Then I stayed up late to go get Littlest from her Wednesday activity, so I was late to bed.

                    Well, yesterday I was strutting around quite a bit, feeling good. It is ridiculous how good a smaller number makes you feel. My skirt does feel a tad looser, but it is not as if I suddenly changed from fat to thin. Yet that's what it felt like in my head. It must change me attitude.

                    Funny bit: an older (maybe 70s?) gentleman at the restaurant was OOGLING my legs every time I got up or sat down. It was blatant enough that his wife glared at him and slapped his hand. Woohoo! I'm attracting older men. (In his defense, I have always had excellent calves. Maybe my knees and lower thighs are starting to catch up. Yes, that does mean it was an above-the-knee skirt! Not too far above, but when I was sitting, you could definitely see a bit of the road to Paradise.)

                    • I am guessing it is the rice and creme brulee that scootched it up. But that still seems like a lot for what you ate.

                      I have always attracted older men, usually short fat ones? I think older men appreciate the more Reubenesque curves that I sport.

                      • Yes, I was thinking one of them has to go on my weekly forays. Even though I love having a few rolls with my sashimi, I think it will have to be the rice. I have found the creme brulee getting a little sweet for my taste, but i am really not ready to give it up.

                        This guy was short and fat, too!

                        I have an hourglass, too, but it is usually not apparent, because I prefer soft cup bras, and loose tops. Whenever I strap myself into an underwire, and wear a fitted top, people are amazed. THAT'S when I get asked how much weight I have lost(not if). I get a laugh out of saying, "none, I'm just wearing different clothes". Now that I can add a weight loss to that, it might be extra-eye-popping.

                          Grok on Sabine!!! 182!! that is awesome! Don't remember what your starting number was & doesn't really matter...any number down from the original is a good one!!! I agree its so amazing the change in attitude with a smaller number on the scale!! While I've only lost about 25 pounds so far, I just "feel" skinnier! Oh I know I'm still fat, I'm not deluding myself, after all I see myself naked in the mirror every night & morning. But there is definitely less of me looking back now & I have just a lighter "spring" to my step & I look better in my smaller clothes...& I too fantasize that I'm down to what I used to look like. I have a picture of my smaller self (actually several) in my notebook where I right down my foods for the day. So everyday I see myself that way again.

                          I have an island dress that I've never been able to wear cause it was too small...& its a little short. Well I wore that sucker to town last Saturday when honey & I went to go pick up our new glasses!! Oh my what a feeling!!! lol

                          • PrimalCajun- I started at 112 after the holiday excesses, so this is down 30 pounds. Almost half way, and it feels great. My first sequential goal is to be solidly in the mid-180s. If I only bounce back a bit and hang out here a few weeks, I will feel that I've made it!

                            Comment


                            • great goal!! and wow 30 lbs!!

                              • Oh yes, every little pound feels great! Although I find my head operates in two modes. Part of me sees me as I used to be, and is shocked to see the skinnier reflection. I catch myself seeking out mirrors, in amazement. And then I feel skinny. Yet part of me sees me at my goal (especially since the weight loss slowed down and my head had time to catch up to and scoot right past reality) and then I see all the fat that's still there. That especially happens when I'm naked. Good thing it's only a very small part of the day, LOL!
