I Can’t Stop Eating!

How I feel!

I have a doctor appointment today. That means a weigh-in. It’s been 3 weeks. I’m not even worried because I know I’ve gained weight.

I have been ever-eating for almost all 21 days of the last three weeks. Sigh. Throw in a grown-up getaway, an Easter Turkey, home-made strawberry shortcake with REAL whipped cream, some really, really good wine…..I couldn’t shut it off.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a couple of good days, lots of walking (well, maybe not LOTS by other people’s standards but lots by my old history) and teaching all about nutrition and portion control.

How I Feel Teaching
Food and Nutrition

Yeah, I teach a food and nutrition class. I KNOW about calories, nutritional content, the Canada Food Guide and portion size. And knowing about portion size means I know about portion control. But I figured a way around that. My portions at a sitting are very appropriate for someone on a limited calorie diet. But… (Isn’t there always a but, and sometimes it’s just me being a butt!) I have unlimited capacity to ever eat and it usually doesn’t occur at a “sitting”. A handful of this here or a piece of that there or just a small (yes, I have two sizes of snack bowls and I chose the small one) ofHickory Sticks on the deck with a book, a large mug of water and sunshine. I have been enjoying bread and I don’t normally eat bread because my tummy doesn’t like and gets all stuffed up. But I got some amazing challah and as toast it is glorious and it makes killer french toast and throw in the real maple syrup…. You can see what I have been putting myself through!

I suffer! Oh, how I suffer!

But, today is a new day. I will be weighed and there will be shared sighs and a commitment on my part to buckle down again and live the life I advise all people who want to be healthy weight to live. I will journal. Again. Yes, it slipped away as my evereating took over. I believe the middle of the week is a good day to re-start my commitment to me.

I will take the leftover bread down to the lagoon and feed the geese, swans and ducks. I’ll even feed the seagulls if they are nice to me. I will walk the length of the beach because walking in the sand is so good for all of my body and being.
