I was going to do a one-week experiment on this blog. Every day I was going to post my food and food thoughts for the day. After being essentially stuck weight-wise for 2 years, I realize that I'm either going to have to make radical changes that I can be consistent with for the rest of my life, or I'm just going to have to accept myself and where I'm at weight-wise. Whining about it but not doing anything about it aren't getting me anywhere.
Why do it here? Hmm...maybe if I have to write it down publicly, I'll "behave" more. Maybe. And maybe you or I will see some themes/triggers and point them out to me.
Today I packed 3/4 of a cucumber and two plums for food at work. I didn't eat before I left my house. I didn't pack any protein. As one might imagine, I was hungry when I got to work. I tried to stave off hunger by immediately drinking a cup of green tea when I got to work. That worked for about an hour. Then I got another cup. That worked for another two hours. I ate my cucumber, which - due to the water content - filled me for quite a bit. Then I ate the two plums.
Somehow I managed to not eat a real meal until I got home.
For dinner I had:
4 slices of swiss cheese
1 can of black beans
2 tablespoons of salsa
1/3 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup (2 "servings") ice cream
