Morning all, how's everybody doing? I had a hard weekend, I battled sugar and carb cravings until I thought I would cry. I ate a little extra fruit to try and get me through it. I figured that was better than the Reece's peanut butter eggs I have out for my son and family. I know many others get it completely out of the house but I don't think it's fair to those who can indulge occasionally that I can't control myself. Hoping this will pass soon but wonder if it just won't be an off and on battle.
For those who read my last entry and are concerned, just check into IR a little more. How I found out to check was a friend of mine had a 15-year-old daughter to be dx and after reading her info I KNEW I had to see a doctor. I should have 30 years ago but my mother didn't have a clue to even have me checked for such a thing. Even after knowing I resisted the diet, I DO NOT want to cut carbs so low, but I finally came to the realization when I wasn't losing on WW and exercising daily I had to quit fighting the obvious. I am in a learning process now on how to hopefully get my body to process food correctly and not store it as fat. I bought the 2011 Calorie King: Calorie, Fat and Carbohydrate Counter and as I read through it I realized I am eating carbs in many places I never knew they were, so I am figuring out how many a day I can eat and lose weight. An example, on past low carb diets that I only lasted several days on, I would eat peanuts and nuts like crazy. 1 oz of cocktail peanuts has 6 carbs. I never knew they had any so I binged on them. Gotta rethink and relearn my way of eating and it is going to be hard.
Breakfast: scrambled eggs with cheese, onions and peppers
Lunch: hamburger steak, large salad
Supper: celery and peanut butter, apple and orange throughout day for snacks
