MUST Remember This Feeling!
Sunday, August 29, 2010
I feel sick... seriously sick. Tonight I decided to throw caution the wind and go for it. We met friends at my favorite italian restaurant... and I was good all day, eating few calories and putting in most of the food I was going to order in before we went. BUT then I couldn't put the fork down, and then decided to have a few bite of my boyfriend's amazing chocolate cake. It was delicious. BUT, the entire meal... 1557 CALORIES!!! SERIOUSLY!?!?! That is more than I have been eating for the day for the past 3 weeks! So here I am... feeling like I am going to puke, popping pepto bismul and hoping that I feel better in time for bed.
But, in a way I'm glad this happened. Why? Because this means that I have started making a lifestyle change. 2 months ago I would have eaten the same amount and not had any problem with it, and that would be after eating "normal" all day. I am really hoping I remember this the next time I go out and actually bring home food instead of eating every last bite. Of course the way I feel now I think it's going to be a while before I eat any Italian!!!
I hope the rest of you also have this feeling of "How in the WORLD did I used to eat all of that????" That is why I am glad this happened because it's reassurance that I am making a change! Now if I can just get this feeling of nausea to go away!!!!!
