food on the mind.

whenever i have even a second of free time... food is on my mind. maybe it is just a habit to grab something and eat it. like tonight. i am sitting here and thinking about a potato chip. sour cream and onion. Herrs. love those and I KNOW they are somewhere in this house because we had them for the NYE party. but all i do is think about it and sip my cup of hot tea and enjoy my sugar free pudding for dessert. ugh. a chip sounds so much better.

i know it will get better... the first two weeks for me are always the hardest. then i get used to turning down food, walking away, and eating healthier. today i ran on the tredmill for three miles. sometimes i get angry that i have to work so darn hard to be skinny. urks me. i should be thankful that i can even run. and i am.

200 more days until i wear my wedding dress in front of family and friends. 200 days until i marry tim!



  1. Good morning,

    Congratulations on the treadmill - you're doing great.

    SO IMPORTANT: if you're craving chips, have the chips. Use your optional calories for that...get the small bag. You so can have them. if you make yourself miserable, you'l fail at this diet - guaranteed.

    This is what I've done in the past If I crave something, I get in the car, got to the local convenience store, purchase what it is I crave and - for me - I sit in the car and thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it. NO one's around, I focus on the wonderfulness of my treat. THEN, start the car, go home and you'll feel so much better.

    If you don't give into these cravings, you'll end up binging. WW addresses this, too. BTW, cravings are a sign of not enough Vit C in your diet. Are you taking vitamins?

    By now you should have lost a few lbs and are feeling thinner and lighter (I am), clothes a little looser. FOCUS on the good things and that will create MORE good things. The JOY of how much better your body feels, how awesome you're going to look in that dress, how proud you are of your efforts, the stares you get from guys (hope Tim isn't reading in). When someone notices that you're thinner, say "Thank you very much"...period. Attitude is everything!!

    Yesterday afternoon, Nonni & I had dinner w ben diGiacomo at Outback - one of my favorite places to eat. I did eat more than I'd planned, but I stuck to my rules...only one cup of coffee for the day, 10 glasses of water for the day, took my vitamins, no sugar (no dessert) and one small piece of BROWN bread - rice instead of fries. Oh and a teeny glass of the most wonderful wine. I was happily full but not uncomfortably bloated as I usually am after a meal out. NOthing more after that for the day.
    My exercise is suffering - so busy handling house stuff this week before I know it the day is over and I hate to exercise at night casue then I can't sleep.

    Have a asmall bag of your favorite chips in private, enjoy the hell ot of them and have a wonderful day.

  2. Oops. Almost forgot. I love you.
