Something unexpected happened yesterday March 28, 2013 *185.8

I have been taking care of my mom's house for the last few months while she is snow birding it in the US. I dont do much, just pick up mail, and make sure everything is ok. Yesterday, I decided to clean her house a bit. The minute I walked in, I felt faint and weak.

I already know I have low blood sugar, which surprisingly, my diet has been helping. I had eaten a good breakfast, but I thought I was going to faint. I found some nuts, then I opened the holy grail. I found chocolate/orange icecream in  her freezer.

When I came out of my crazy icecream fantasy, I had found I had eaten tooooo many cals. Instead of freaking out, and saying oh the hell with it, lets eat everything. I kept my cals low for the rest of the day, and in the end I was almost within my daily calorie alotement.

What was kind of unexpected, was my overwhelming urge to eat. I finally figured out it was because I was at my mom's house. I always  overeat there. I stress/binge/emotional/boredom eat whenever I am at her house, or around her.

I guess it is a good thing that she has been gone for awhile. It let me diet in peace, take time to learn about my triggers, and how to deal with them. Now I have to think of a plan on how to deal with my Mamma's House!

BTW! I weighed in at 185.8 lbs!

  2. you should really be proud of yourself for not letting go completely and sticking to low calories for the rest of the day. I think that decision just shows how far you have come and how much you have improved :) congratulations!!
