Well I am going to go ahead and write while I have time because tonight at home probably won't since we only have one computer and my hubby is always on it. I don't feel like talking about the hubby topic again in great detail. Seems to just ruin my mood for the day. We still aren't talking, I am waiting on him to come around when he wants to. If he truly loves me after saying what he did then he should come to me. That is my main thought. Anyways new topic.
I have been trying to do low carb this week like (atkins low carb induction phase) but still following BFC of course. Its just my weight has been staying at 197 but guess it has been some bad food choices and stress too. I just want this weight to come off faster so I can feel better about myself because everything else right now sorta feels blah in my life. I mean I have good days and bad days, but I would like to have more good days. I am going to start living for just "me" now and no one else. I am going to finish my Bachelors degree hopefully by the end of next summer and my goal is to be 140 by Christmas or hopefully sooner. Right now this low carb eating is super easy. I don't feel like I am about to bite off my arm any more because I think I have hit the point in the diet where I don't have cravings anymore. I mainly just eat the bad choices when I am lazy or feeling blah. So now that I kicked the cravings, I need to learn to kick the emotional eating. Like today I had to force myself to eat, I wasn't even hungry, but I know I need to eat. I am like this almost every day. Its really strange. Let me ask a question... Do you think we have a calorie minimum? I mean eating low carb makes the calories sorta low and I have read a lot of articles about starvation mode. If we don't eat enough do you think our bodies are just going to hold onto everything thinking it needs it and then we won't lose weight? I wonder if this is true. What are your opinions? A lot of articles say starvation mode for women is under 1200 calories for the average woman. Somedays I eat like only 1000 calories so I wonder if my body just holds onto the food. Maybe I should make sure I eat over 1200 calories everyday...
Well here is what I ate today:
B- 3 eggs scrambled with cheese + 3 slices of bacon (that precooked kind) + coffee + 2 SC
L- Spinach salad with spritzer dressing (that light spray type dressing-not bad), topped with 1/2 cup fiber one cottage cheese, one slice each of turkey and smoked ham, and 5 slices of cucumbers. I had to force myself to eat a good bit of this because I just didn't want to eat. Not because I don't like, but it was making me gag as I tried to force myself to eat, because I felt full. Strange I must say cause I hardly ate anything today.
D- If I can eat, I will plan to have a baked piece of Cod and some steamed asparagus with butter + 2 SC after dinner + One A Day Women's Vitamin (trying to be good about taking vitamins now too)
Well again and as always thanks for reading!! Wish you all the best when choosing your BFC approved foods and hope you have great will power. : )
