I had a sugar withdrawal headache and was pretty tired for most of the day, but tonight after my final snack I feel a lot better. I think I am over the hump and everything will get easier after today.
black decaf coffee
iced coffee with half and half
handful of sugar snap peas, raw
a few olives, maybe 2 tablespoons of roasted sunflower seeds
Wonderslim protein crackers, peach salsa, bit of sour cream
plain iced tea
a few cherries
Dinner, on the run:
2 slices of deli ham wrapped around a light string cheese
After dinner, I was at a concert with friends and started to feel shaky and dizzy. I could literally feel my blood sugar bottoming out (I have had swings of low blood sugar before, which is why I was on Victoza to regulate my blood sugar levels. The new insurance won't cover it because I am not diabetic, so I'm not on it now). I ate 3 peppermints that I keep in my purse for this kind of thing and felt better.
one serving of high protein/low carb cereal with blueberries and unsweetened almond milk
I decided to add Friday's food onto this post instead of making a new post for it. I think I am pretty steady on my intake now and won't be posting all my food to my blog every day.
black decaf coffee
fresh juice from a juice bar (I watched them make it) containing 1/2 cucumber, bunch of kale, half a lime, 5 celery stalks, and a Granny Smith apple.
5 or 6 raspberries
1 bratwurst, sliced onion and a big handful of spinach sauteed in about a teaspoon of avocado oil
iced coffee with stevia and a splash of half and half
about a half cup of Eggbeaters mixed with 2 ounces of light cream cheese, cinnamon, and stevia, cooked in a frying pan with just enough butter to coat, with about half a cup of fresh blueberries sprinkled on and flipped. Really filling and good.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
