Week 10- Weigh in

Today’s weigh in: 226.2

That’s a loss of 1.4 pounds!

My clothes are looser, and I feel lighter.

I haven’t been doing very well with the adding carbs back in slowly though. I will admit to you all right now that as soon as I gave myself that permission I began indulging in all manner of things that I shouldn’t have had.

White rice, Bread, Girl Scout cookies, Ice cream, Mini tacos, Special K chocolaty cereal, Pancakes…Oh my!

I went on a fruit bender too and ate a banana and and apple within minutes of each other. Then I devoured 10 prunes as I was feeding one to my constipated son. Not a pretty picture!

I know it hasn’t been as bad as it could be, but it could easily get out of control again. I sat here and contemplated getting a pop tart out of the vending machine for 20 minutes this morning.

So I’m back on the low carb train. I just have to accept the fact that, for me, eating an apple is like an alcoholic having a chardonnay. Before you know it I’ll be drunk on Cinnabons and Frosties.

It’s not like I’m not eating healthy. I really am. A lot of people in my life have a misconception when I say I’m eating low carb that I’m just eating red meat 24/7. Yesterday I had an egg white omelet with spinach and feta and turkey sausage for breakfast. I had a huge salad with grilled chicken for lunch. I got home from work late and wasn’t really hungry so I had a couple of hotdogs without the bun for dinner.

Maybe once I get some more of this weight off I’ll have better control over my blood sugar. But right now it’s far more important to my health to avoid blood sugar spikes at all costs. I do not want to end up with Type 2 Diabetes and that is was where I am was headed.


  1. Good job on the weight loss this week!! Keep it up. I can totally relate to the feeling of "apples being like chardonnay to an alcoholic". If I eat a piece of chocolate or 1 girl scout cookie, before you know it, I have eaten and entire box. Ugh....

  2. Good job on the weight loss! I am glad you are back on the low/non-carb thing because no offense, it does sound like you went pretty out of control when you started adding it back in. guess you aren't ready for that. :(

  3. Low Carb is SO me too! I nibble bread or something and then it's a downward spiral of donuts and fries. I'm totally there with you!
