Just wanted to do a little accountability post... might do another post later.
Yesterday was better again. More Greek yogurt, a bit of fruit, a leftover chicken enchilada for lunch. I did have about 3T of chocolate chips mixed with walnuts. Someone oh-so-generously bought a huge, Costco-sized bag of chocolate chips for the pantry a couple weeks ago, for baking. However, they are bothering me. They are going downstairs to the "other", less accessible pantry. I wish they weren't in the house, but some family members like to add them to their pancakes and muffins so I will deal. I also ate the last 2 sugar free Klondike bars (will not be buying anymore of them) and one bowl of corn chips (another "I-didn't-buy-it" food that I wish was not in the house, and I am now swearing off corn chips permanently. I feel icky when I eat them). Overall, even with the unhealthier choices, I did better. Sometimes, you just have to take baby steps. Right now my baby steps include NOT going to the store for cake, cookies, etc and NOT stopping for lattes and iced coffees. And just trying to be moderate (which I have not been at all over the last week). Less volume, less calories. Scale was down another pound this morning. Just goes to show you, it does take a LOT of food and calories for me to maintain a regain. Cut back to a more reasonable amount and the weight starts to drop off. I will have to quit with the crap foods in order to feel better and continue losing. And I am still sort of winging it with my eating, trying to find a comfortable way to eat.
That's all for now, back later.
