You read it right.. restriction has left me.. it is just willpower that is getting me through these last few weeks..without seeing any substantial changes on the scale I feel that somedays even the willpower has taken a long walk. and left me.. (sigh).
Wednesday I go for my fill and I am about ready to tell the doc to get me to the point of restriction that would scare a nasty python!!
On the eating front... I have tried this 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup feeding measures during my meals.. well, how else can I describe this other than it's pretty sad when I find myself licking the plate.. cause I am still hungry..
This whole measuring thing has to shake out to make sense.. my nutritionist said to use the palm of your hand as a serving size. Ok which is it .. the 1/4 cup or palm of my hand.. cause I can make that hand stretch pretty wide if I have to! (more sigh)
So.. its been a few days since my last post.. and here is what I have been up to...
Over the weekend the eating started off on a good note..
I made that delicious pulled pork receipe that Gen posted.. turned out wonderful and oh was it good.. in fact I probably had 2 servings too many... or 4 palms sizes over the course of the weekend.
I also went to a two hour Intro to Yoga class to get in touch with my inner self.. yep.. there I was the fattest chick in my anorexic town.. stretching away, wrapping my legs around my neck and doing full sunrises.. that probably looked like full moons from the back. End result.. I can feel it today because I am hobbling across my office.
Let's see what else.. We (well mostly my DH) worked on our update to the walkin closet.. paints done and now hardwood floors should be going in soon.
Unfortunately, we had another death in the family, a lingering illness so it was a blessing to let this poor relative finally be at peace and to let the family rest.. but it still is sad.. again, I have plenty of black in my wardrobe. It's funny how I only see these relatives at weddings and funerals. I haven't seen them in 10 years, and will now be seeing them 3 times within the last 8 months..
So my next big venture is fill number 2...I have been trying to get my head back to square one, AND get back on track with where I need to be and stop the in between eating (and I know it is just because I am hungry).. So until my fill experience.. I am going to hang low.. be well
