The last two days have been fun experimenting with food and cravings. I had about 3 oz. of salmon the other night that didn't sit well with me. Felt hard on my stomach but was really good. Last night my boyfriend took me and a friend out to eat at Bodega Bay. It was overcast and beautiful at the coast. I had been craving dungenss crab. I ate about 4 crab legs and had two pieces of sourdough bread, some butter and a salad with bleu cheese dressing. OMG! It was so good. I also had a few bites of chocolate mousse. I tracked my calories in my calorie log and my total for the entire decadant day came to 1,110. I was pleased with that because I really want to continue losing weight and not get sidetracked with my cravings. However, that did the trick and I feel ready for just fruits and veggies for today. I might even do a one day juice fast later this week to let my body "catch up" on the food, especially the two proteins I had this past week. My stomach feels back to normal though as far as processing foods. I'm sure if I had eaten the entire dessert I would have been very sick. But right now just "a bite" of something fills that craving instead of setting me off on a major binge. I give thanks to the juice fast for that. My weight is exactly the same at 152 lbs. Now it's time to get the rest of this weight off! Onward and upward!!
Great job! I'm looking forward with all eagerness to being that number again. A healthy outlook on food is more important than an obsessive perfectionist one. I'm glad that you are seeking out what is best for you. All the while, you're monitoring your behavior which in the long run will lead to better and better choices. One of the biggest problems with weight gain, is that we avoid our problem instead of analyzing it. You're a great example!
