Slimmer's Blog 5: 10 Days Until Blood Test - Not Thinking Positive All The Time? Me Either.

Sunday, May 05, 2019

Me at around 280? I'm 197.75 now Hi Yup only 10 days until I get my Blood Test, but today I am off Mentally on Trying To Be Positive.

Now do we know what makes up get Weak Thinking on trying to eat and lose weight? Well, I have been doing good since 1st of this year, but today I'm off in my thinking... and I do know what made me go in that direction.

I bought 3 pkg of dried fruit and nuts to have as snacks. Said only 35-40 calories a Tablespoon. I "thought" I could do that ...without eating that whole little pkg. WELL I THOUGHT WRONG!

Actually I did well last night and tried to measure out 2 tablespoons. Dawwww just try and level out lumpy fruit and nuts. I tried my best and ate them. Then I guess thought what is another 70 calories and had 2 more Tablespoons.

I also have a jar of peanuts and I thought ...Ok.. have 1 ounce... which I weighed. Then I must have thought WHAT THE H-LL.. and I ATEEEEEEEEE!!!! Lots more nuts and fruit and and and more nuts! Well that was Done. Hmmmm...

Well, even with what I ate I figured I had not eaten more than 5-700 calories in fruit and nuts. Now that was not that much over my 1200 calories I had not gotten to. Plus, these 2 weeks I am working on carbs not so much losing weight for my blood test.

Next morning I am like 2 ounces heavier which means nothing, but my sugar jumped to 162. I can't eat FRUIT like that and expect my sugar to go down.

Well, that made me grumpy and out of sorts.. and what did I do? I ATE ALL that was left in the 3 Bags of fruit and nuts!!!! That was easy. I won't buy that anymore and will not have weak thinking again over them. Done. Problem Corrected.... Except that I did eat all that. Hmmm...

Brunch meal was not so exciting in a good healthy meal, but the calories and carbs I added from that little Binge.. just made it a large calorie/carb count for that meal.
....I CAN now just continue... all is not lost.

It REALLY is the FAULT of the company that packaged those fruit and nuts. They should list REALISTLY the 490 calories and 56 carbs for the WHOLE Package having a breakdown maybe using Cup sizing and not Tablespoon measurement.

Main thing "I learned" from this WEAK MOMENT: Do Not Buy Bags of Nuts and Fruit Again!
...They are just too good to stay away from.

Now to Quickly Recover ...OK.. might as well tell you to make sure I would not go on overeating like this again (or well, anytime soon) I ALSO ate the 2 Sugar Free Chocolate Puddings for a of Total 140 Calories...That I had not touched for over a week... They are now gone too.

Whew... Ok my Confessions are over not that much damage done except mostly Mentally that I feel I Failed Myself.

Bottom Line: We are Not Perfect - We are going to Have Moments We Are Weak - How long will it take Each of us to RECOVER?

    I gave yesterday and had a Dairy Queen fried fish sandwich. It must have been “not a good day” for both of us. My cholesterol probably will be awful tomorrow.

    You are right about serving sizes. You think fruit and nuts would be good until you realize how little you can eat.

    Back on the trail for both of us today! We can do this!

    I try to weigh my "fruit/nut" snacks, since the measuring can be so difficult as you explain.

    I can empathize with how easy it is to just give in and "finish off" the trigger foods too, best to just keep them out of the house!

    I completely understand the not trying to go over in your sugar intake. I was diagnosed pre diabetic and I am scared that even with my diets and lifestyle changes that when my doctor checks my blood suger over the last 3 months that it will still be high. I am trying everything I can think of. I do not want to become diabetic. I hope you are able to withstand the temptations and stay on track. Good luck.
