No Celery Please – NYC Edition!


Counting

Posted in Fooooooooooood!,Just... Life by noceleryplease on August 27, 2012

So while I DID give up the obsessive tracking of calories on my computer, I had sorta switched over to estimating in my head what I’m taking in each day.

I am really trying to give that up, because when I guess, it’s always higher than actual.

I’m making progress – mostly because I am starting to eat things that I don’t know by heart.  So guessing is tough.

Getting MUCH better at eating for “hunger”…

Yesterday, I didn’t really eat much of anything at all until dinner.  I just wasn’t hungry.  The SB goes out to lunch on Saturdays and Sundays… and I usually join him on one of the days.  But I skipped it yesterday… I just “wasn’t hungry”…  There was a time when that DEFINITELY would not have stopped me from going out to lunch.

I know the SB likes me to go out to lunch with him, but I am not yet to the point where I could be “not hungry” and sit in a restaurant with other people eating while I don’t…  so I just didn’t go.

I haven’t had any real change in my weight since those first 5-6 pounds of lost water from switching to low carb…  so looks like what I am doing is working 🙂

    That is one of the biggest hurdles, not eating when you aren’t really hungry, just because everyone else is eating. So much of our social interactions revolve around food. I wish I could eat for hunger. It doesn’t matter if I ate at a buffet, 4 hours later, on the dot, my blood sugar tanks, and I get the shakes, nausea and cold sweats. When I try to explain this to the doc, why I have a hard time losing weight, they poo-poo it off, and tell me I need to see a shrink. Bah.

    Sounds like you are getting a handle on it tho, that’s excellent!
