Round Two

Hey ladies! I've been a little distant lately because I've been struggling with healthy eating. I've been ashamed and I'm still trying to shake it off.  Thanksgiving was delicious and unhealthy. I ate everything except bread. I think it opened my eyes and I realized that I shouldn't be able to eat almost two plates! That Saturday was the new start.
I've dusted off my healthy cookbooks and I'm about to head to the store. I realized that I HAVE to be pro-active with this. It's like all you have said, I'm stuck smack in the middle of bandster hell. Hell is a perfect word because I want to eat everything!

So, I've re-stocked the fridge with cottage cheese, fruit, yogurt, and juices. I realized that eating almost an entire sleeve of wheat crackers with my soup was probably not the best idea. Damn, it was good, though.
My sister hit 16lbs lost and that was like a slap in the face.
I decided to stop fighting against Bandy and start listening to him.


  1. It really does get a lot easier once you have good restriction. Until you get there you are essentially dieting. My suggestion would be to just do your best, but don't beat yourself up for what you feel is overeating. Just focus on taking small bites, eating slowly, chewing thouroughly, being aware as you eat and try to eat only when you're hungry. Also eat your protein first so you don't fill up on carbs. You'll get there!

  2. You can do this! Don't beat yourself up though.. What happened yesterday is past, and tomorrow is another day! Take each day one at a time!! We're rooting for YOU!

  3. Yay for being pro-active. Its a great start. Begin again, today is a new day :)

  4. This is a hard time of year to be in bandster hell. I feel for you. I agree that beating yourself up is the worst thing you can do. If you are like me you eat, then feel guilty, then eat more because you felt guilty, then feel more guilty...you get the point.
